In the last couple months, I've noticed that Preview is unable to search some (but not all) pdfs. These are clearly digitized journal articles, recently published. Since this didn't make sense to me, I opened the documents with Adobe Reader and found they were searchable using Adobe.

What is going on? I'd prefer to use Preview, since I'd always preferred its search function and like its annotation tools (specifically, the box outline tool I use to identify chunks of text). Should I just give up on Preview and switch to Adobe?
