I wonder if "Fully customizable interface" means that...

a). If I want my app to use "Text Search" but NO "TEXT extraction" and "BookMarks", then IT is capable TO DO that... Did I understood correctly?... or...
b) Even if PDFKIT is not capable to do it, I could restrict it from the very Pdf document creation and PdfKit will respect that... Am I correct?

    a) Well, you can just disable the bookmarks view controller and the text extraction by removing the buttons from the interface.
    b) Sorry, I don't understand what you mean here. Can you rephrase it?

    Anyway, 'Fully customizable interface' just means that you can take the compiled library - libFastPdfKit.a - and everything you need from the open source classes and arrange them as you like. The easiest, shortest way is to take everything as is. This mean basically using the ReaderViewController from the devel branch. The next step is to change the button icons and the labels as you need. On the opposite side is taking just the library and build you very own MFDocumentViewController's subclass.
    As long as the code you write interfaces properly with both the library and its callbacks you can do everything you like.

    Ok... about the BookMarks I want to avoid using Personal BookMarks (or Manually MarkUp text?)... Bookmarks must be used only to those pointing the Index....

    And about the ONLY TEXT SEARCH feature is due to the development of this app that must NOT COPY & PASTE but only search to find exactly thoses word needed...

    The App must handle an Emergency Manual... that's teh reason IT must be words searchable but without copy&paste procedures....

    Could you explain what you intend with BookMarking a Pdf? In the sample project we ship an example controller that will let you add bookmarks to any pdf document, but you can customize it or create your own one freely.

    You can prevent copy and paste, the text is not selectable directly on the page, but you need to present a UITextView or something ad prevent text selection.
