no OCR parameter in "File Type Settings"

Feb 14, 2011 2:27 AM

The following knowledge base article suggests that there used to be an "Use OCR" parameter in the"File Type Settings" of LiveCycle PDF Generator:

http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/402/kb402622.html

 

Where is this feature now located?

I want to do OCR on full page sized TIFF images or PDFs with page filling TIFF images embedded.

The output format should be PDF.

 

I am running a TRIAL of "LiveCycle Enterprise Suite 2" Service Pack 2 Version 9.0.0.2.20100902.2.246889 including

ADOBE® LIVECYCLE® PDF Generator ES2

ADOBE® LIVECYCLE® Barcoded Forms ES2
ADOBE® LIVECYCLE® Reader Extensions ES2
ADOBE® LIVECYCLE® Rights Management ES2
ADOBE® LIVECYCLE® Process Management ES2

    I'm not sure why you are not seeing it.  It should be on the image to PDF  screen.  Its a switch that says Use OCR.

    Even I am not able to see the options where I can specify if I want to use OCR. I have Adobe Livecycle ES2 SP2 installed on RHEL 5 (64 bit).

     

    We also tried to export the configuration file and edit it manually to set useOCR from "false" to "true" and upload it back. But still it did not work.

     

    I could not search any text in the PDF.

     

    Can you please help.

    Dear Combattands,

    this forum is censored. I already informed the CEO. Drop me a line by email.

    Hi Irgei,

    take ABBYY OCR SDK in combination with iText pdf SDK. The Abbyy OCR  delivers by dfar better quality - especially dewarping-

    and it is fully automatable.

    Best regards

    Axel
