Hi, Yammer search results used to turn up PDFs with text matching the search keywords. It looks like this is no longer working with the few tests we ran today. No PDFs were returned in the searches unless the keyword was in the title of the PDF. MS Support article says this is a current feature: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2834653 

 

Kindly confirm if this is a bug or if this feature is no longer supported? When opening a PDF in the preview page, it allows to search text in the document through the "find" feature, but the regular search field doesn't seem to pick it up.

 

Many thanks for your help.
