    Editing Problems with scanned documents

    garyk -NE

      I have Acrobat DC. When I open a newly scanned document (80% text and 20% drawings) and select Edit, I do not see the bounding boxes as per the tutorial. Instead I get, "Acrobat has determined that this page does not have editable text.  If it is a scanned page, convert it to another format using the Export PDF tool."  1. WHY?

       

      if i then select Enhance Scans / Enhance Scanned Document (with character Recognition checked) and click Enhance, then the images do get bounding boxes and the text is recognized, but the text is not inside a bounding box.  2. WHY NOT?

       

      3. How can I move the text without losing all formatting?  It is not in a bounding box.
