How To Search Folders For Text In A PDF
Text based PDF files are searchable, but PDFs created from a scanned document only contain an image of the scanned page and are therefore not searchable. So an OCR process is needed to recognize the characters and add the searchable text layer to the PDF. The ScanToPDF OCR plug-in will add the searchable text layer at the time of scanning. If you have an existing archive of image files (tiffs, jpgs, pngs, etc) or image only PDF files then these can be converted into searchable PDFs using our FileToPDF product.
