# cannot search in created PDF-File

I write my bachelor thesis with texstudio under ubuntu 14.04. And I've noticed that I cannot search in the created file. I tried everywhere - evince, acroread, in texstudio integrated pdf-viewer.

I use for latex default settings only.

Do you have some advises for me?

Here can you see the "header" of the document:

• Perhaps complete the code to a small compilable example, upload your PDF file output somewhere and link here, so we could test and verify. – Stefan Kottwitz Jun 11 '15 at 7:50
• Check at the end of the log-file if you are using type1 font (.pfb) or bitmaps (.pk). Check what happens if you remove the (nonstandard) hawstyle package, – Ulrike Fischer Jun 11 '15 at 8:01
• @Stafan Kottwitz: link contains sources and compiled pdf. @Ulrike Fischer: cannon delete the hawstyle package because it must be contained in the final version of document - this package make formate for the first 3 pages... – pawelA Jun 11 '15 at 8:23
• You should remove the style to test if it is responsable for the problem. Beside this: Why are you answering only to the second of my remarks? – Ulrike Fischer Jun 11 '15 at 8:36
• These are bitmaps. Install the cm-super fonts. Or switch to \usepackage{lmodern}. – Ulrike Fischer Jun 11 '15 at 8:52

As found out in the comments the document used bitmaps fonts. This can be checked by looking at the list of fonts at the end of the log-file: .pk or .600pk or similar are bitmaps. If the bitmaps are the cm/ecfonts one can resolve the problem by installing the cm-super fonts or by switching to the lmodern fonts.
