KDX: Unable to search PDFs from main screen... PDFs not indexed?

I guess there's no indexing going on for PDF searching because I can't seem to find any words that are in my PDFs from the main screen "search my items". I can however open the PDF and search once I'm in, but then again, it's not a find every occurance, it's just a find next occurance.

The "all device" search only includes the PDF's metadata. So you might be able to search for the title or author but not much else.
