OCR of text

Postby tays01s » Sun May 19, 2019 5:38 pm

I have produced a pdf originating in Inkscape. I used OCR in Acrobat. It only makes 2 boxes of text copy.

Is there a way to produce text that can be copy/ pasted from a pdf?

It is essential to keep or make the text as "Text" , not "Flowed text". Also essential to not convert any text to paths.

Have a nice day.

I'm using Inkscape 0.92.2 (5c3e80d, 2017-08-06), 64 bit win8.1

The Inkscape manual has lots of helpful info! http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/
