    Hello,

    My question might sound dumb but, I was doing a search for text in a pdf document in preview...this is an image of what I got

    [​IMG]

    Now I understand that the text I am searching for only appears in the following pages, but what are the lines next to them?

    I figured that they mean how often the text I am searching for appears in that page, but its not

    for example page 42 above , has the word I am searching for appears just 1 time and it has a long set of lines
    and page 81 which has just 1 line, the words appears in it 11 times!

    so what are these set of lines next to the page numbers?

    Supposedly they're relevancy meters... but as you have found out they aren't particularly meaningful.
