While in the search mode, select "all" instead of "some" so search results will be sorted by file name.

Navigation within each case files can be done two ways: (1) sequentially or page by page and (2) through bookmarks which list the title of each document, and takes you to the first page of that document. It is best to use Acrobat Reader 8 or higher.
