    How do I make my handwriting UNindexable while the text on the pdf file and the letters in textboxes are kept searchable? I think it was available until the latest update on September...

     What I m talking about is the handwriting search function, not about the use of lasso to turn handwritten letters into textbox. For the latter function, I am so happy and I want to keep that in use. For the former one, I hope there was a on/off button for "search handwritings as well."
