DOC, DOCX files are not indexed for search

edited April 2014 in Troubleshooting
It looks MS WORD DOC and DOCX files are not indexed for search. Search field is not visible in document viewer. Latest version of ABIWORD and LibreOffice are installed and CA maintenance check shows Available. PDF documents are indexed.

Any idea?

Thanks, Gabor


  • They are indexed using ABIWord and LibreOffice at the document level. If you want in-document search and highlighting you will need to install PDFMiner. Get it at
  • PDFMiner is installed, but still not indexed in-document MS WORD DOCX, DOC. I tried it on your demo site with the same result.
  • Oh my bad. That's PDF only. In-document search of Word files is not currently supported. I guess I am easily confused :-(
  • Hi Seth. Maybe now has been Word files search enabled?

  • No. It you want this supported file a jira ticket for it please.
