PDF reader that searches in all open documents


#1

I am looking for a PDF reader for windows that will search in all open documents. Also, availability on Linux and being open source are preferred.

Here is what I have found so far-
Sumatra PDF- search all not available
Evince- search all either not available or I could not figure it out
Okular- search all either not available or I could not figure it out
FBReader- Last windows version is from 2010 and is also no longer FOSS
Foxit reader- I think it has search all but includes bundleware
Adobe reader- It is SOOO slow to display stuff

Are there any recomendations you guys have?

dnGrep is more of a search tool. But it will do what you want… maybe. I don’t think it can be asked to only search the PDFs that are already open tho.
