We generate PDF files from TIFF that have the original TIFF
embedded in the PDF with the OCRed text hidden behind the image. In
the PDF, you can search for and select the text, and it highlights
the text right behind where it is in the image.
However, when we convert these PDF files to FlashPaper, the
hidden text is gone!
I've seen somewhere that if you use Acrobat Reader 5.0 to do
the conversion to SWF, the text remains in the SWF file, but this
isn't really an acceptable solution, as PDFs created to the newest
standards may not be printable from Adobe Reader 5.0.
Does anyone know why this happens, and have any suggestions
on how to work around it?
