This is driving me crazy. Whenever I search for a term in a pdf with Preview (cmd+F) it will jump to the very first occurrence of the search term in the entire document (!) automatically. I want it to stay on the current page and only jump when I do Find Next (cmd+G) or Find Previous (shift+cmd+G), respectively.

Can I make some settings changes to achieve this? The preferences menu is tiny and does not have that option.
