    OCR PDF hidden text removed

    JC!
      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?
