Is there any way to search for phrase in multiple pdfs simultaneously? For example I have openned 4 pdfs and I look for phrase: "cat" in all of them at the same time?

One way of many possible would be to use PDF-XChange Viewer

  • it can search in all open .PDFs or any selected folder
  • can search for phrases or whole words

I assume you mean with "at the same time" that you want a one-click solution
