    2 part question. I'm hoping to be using my Touch for work to locate parts in a large pdf file. I need to be able to locate the part number using a search/find option in an application that will take me right to the part number and not just to the file.
    .
    Anyone know of an application that will search and locate Words and not just locate the file? I maybe able to use a different format but pdf is preferred.

    Also, I need to know how to upload the file to the Touch. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.

    im not too sure about a pdf reader that still locates the parts using search/find. If you were to copy it to your ipod i recommend using open ssh after it is jailbroken

    Goodreader handles huge pdf files, and will find words within a file very quickly. I use it for large technical manuals.

    Thanks for the suggestion on Goodreader. I'll check it out.

    Would I need to Jailbreak my touch to use it? I'm not sure but I'm guessing I would so I can load up the pdf file.

    1 Last question I'm using Version 3.1.2 and if I remember right that the jailbreak is tethered and I would have to reload every time I turn off the pod?

    Been doing a lot of reading here and its easy to get confused will all the information. Sorry

    Edit: Being a newbie I of coursed asked a question about needing to jailbreak before checking out the app. No jailbreak and I now have the app. Time to test it and figure out how to load the pdf files. Thanks again for the lead
