If you have a particular process that is critical to your workflow, you may want to seek other tools, such as Acrobat...at least for the time being.Intel iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.1), OLED Pano

Hope this helps someone else.MacBook Pro 15 Mid 2009, Mac OS X (10.6.1), 6 GB Ram, 500 GB 7200 RPM ST9500420ASG
Currently Being ModeratedNov 30, 2009 11:26 PM (in response to wessto)Thanks for the tip. I've just come across this issue in preview and have left some feedback for Apple. I use Spotlight extensively for finding notes and references and if it can't be relied upon it becomes a major problem.
Have you come across Skim, the open-source pdf reader? It doesn't have this issue and is an extremely polished and professional application.imac 27, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
