I want to write a function that jumps to a given string in a pdf document. I am using
pdf-tools. Naively, I thought this would work:
(defun goto-string-in-pdf (pdffile) "Jump to string 999 in pdffile" (let ((win (get-buffer-window pdffile))) (with-selected-window win (pdf-view-goto-page 1) (search-forward "999"))))
But it seems
search-forward doesn't work in PDFView-mode. So how do I make this work?
