Recognize text > In this file not working

I'm trying to convert pdf files (that were created by scanning paper documents) to searchable pdf.


Under my Tools>Recognize Text>In this file, the "In this file" option is greyed out.


There are no security restrictions on the document.


Can anyone help?

    Normally, the "In this file" option is only grayed out if there is security set. Do you see the words (SECURED) at the very top of the Acrobat title bar or a lock icon in the Navigation pane? Are you opening this document from a network location? If so, try saving a local copy and then running the OCR.
