I am creating list with numerous custom columns. One of the columns is multiple lines of text and I use it to upload some pdf files (I need to have more than one document in one item). When i try to search in the list search box "Find an item": Find an item search box

for some words from PDF files that I updated there is no result. But if i try same thing from "Search this site" I get results so I presume it is not crawl or search issue. What am I doing wrong?

All the best

  • I am confused, you say you are putting the PDF into the Multiple Lines of Text field? Or are you just using the attachment to the list item? Or is this a document library? – Matthew McDermott Aug 9 '16 at 15:28
  • Yes, I am putting PDF files in Multiple Lines of Text field (there is upload option there, and then I can see my files in view as well I see link to all my files). This is custom list not document library. – Zole83 Aug 10 '16 at 7:00
