allow search text
Allow users to search all text in a stored document, especially in a PDF file, returning file and page number where found.
We are currently looking into this feature.
Very interested in this feature also. Crucial component to fulfill the needs our organization has for a DMS.
has this feature been added yet?
This seems to be an essential feature of any DMS. I am using Drupal and am searching for a secure way of managing documents with a text search. There are existing Drupal modules that provide the basic functionality but as with OpenDocMan only allow you to search an abstract/description.
hi guys, is there any time frame on this?
searching through documents is amongst the top three functionalities we are looking for. Without being able to search it's not usable for us.
necessary for me using this software

I am satisfied searching document metadata only until OpenDocMan has matured further, as I suspect other smaller organizations will be. User interface improvements, searching UDF text, and LDAP authentiation are all much higher on my wish list. By the way, I believe KnowledgeTree uses OpenOffice (LibreOffice?) to extract document text for indexing and searching.
I looked at swish-e, installed it on my Ubuntu from Synaptic. That does look like a good search engine designed for integration with ODM to search any type of file.
Why not integrate Swish-e for this? Sounds like the perfect solution:

I'd like to see PDF, Word docs etc indexed with search functionality in OpenDocMan - to help you find the document you are looking for by content search, not just from MetaTags.

No, PDF/Word,etc. are stored in binary. There is not much plain text inside the files. There may be some php library for searching common file types though that might be a good candidate for implementing into opendocman.
could something like Grep search PDF's and then pass the info to Opendocman?

This would be a very good feature, but also a difficult feature
