I've tried the Atril man page and F1 from inside Atril.
I've tried a DuckDuckGo search with unsatisfactory results.

I have two problems using the "find" command.

1. When the keyword is found, it is highlighted(sic) in a page green foreground color. Is there any way to chose a more visible indicator?

2. The find searches from the _beginning_ of the document.
   Is there any way to force it to begin searches at a specific page?

Is there any document that would have answered these questions.

Is there a Debian package to read a PDF using a visible means of highlighting the target text and capable of starting the search on any page of the document?


I like to use "evince".

It has the same pale green highlight.
This setting is coming from your desktop environment theme. I use custom-colored theme called "Adapta-Nokto-Eta" (package is called "adapta-gtk-theme") and it makes color for search highlights in evince look gray-blue-ish, which accomplishes the goals for me to be non-distracting and serve its purpose as highlight.

I don't know how to approach my problem.

My desktop is MATE. I believe the display manager is lightdm.

I used Synaptic to look for "adapta-gtk-theme" without success
[my sources.list contains
 "deb http://deb.debian.org/debian/ stretch main contrib"]


If I wanted to know if there is a package available in Debian repos, where it is and what version, I'd use, probably the fastest way, and typed:
    $ rmadison adapta-gtk-theme

If I wanted to know from what package that strange utility or file comes from, I'd typed:
    $ apt-file find rmadison

If you will use adapta-gtk-theme, I suggest you to create a simple backport [1] of it with colors you like. This is what I did, long before this package has arrived to official Debian repos, because I dislike default colors and it's easy to change them.
You can find a sneak-peek of features and default colors on github. [2]
