Foxtrot Pro 6.6.3 (1988) finds words in *some* Pages documents, but it
won't jump to the highlighted words in those documents. It does with
others. Anyone know why?
I don't know of a way to find out what version of Pages created the
documents.

Mac OS 10.14.6

Editing the document and saving it with the latest version of Pages seems
to make no difference.

Update 2:

It is the current version of Pages that is the problem.
I opened a different document and Pages updated it automatically, and I was
informed:
"Mac os Spotlight search information was removed."
Then, on saving it, I cannot find its content in the FoxTrot Pro preview
pane.

Update 3:

With the older version of Pages, I can select text from the document n the
Preview pane.
With the current version of Pages, I cannot select any text.

When I drag the document to the desktop, I get a PDF file.
I'm currently using Pages 8.2

Thanks

FoxTrot version 7 beta 1 will be made available soon, and it will support
highlighting occurrences found in recent versions of Pages documents.
