searching for words in konqueror's .pdf-preview

i wonder if it somehow is possible to search for a word more than to the first time it occurs. the preview function is very fast while opening acrobat reader actually takes quite a bit longer than one minute on my notebook. with konqueror, i can search for a word and will be directed to the place it occurs for the first time. but all other times the word is mentioned will not be searchable. or are there hotkeys/function for that, too?

Instead of using *find*, try *find next* in the menu. Enter the word to find and it goes to the first instance. Click on *find next* again, and it goes to the next instance.

I should add that I use kpdf in Konqueror's View Mode.
