It seems there are 2 ways to perform OCR on a PDF that needs it: Enhance Scans/Recognize Text and trying to highlight text that is not OCR'd (this prompts the option to recognize the text). The first method almost always crashes Acrobat for me. The second is flawless. They seem to do the same job. I wonder if this is a bug or specific to my configuration. Placing the Aa tool symbol in my toolbar would be the most convenient method; but that causes the crash.
Thanks in advance.
Thanks very much. I never saw that option before. ( I don't think it is in the Helping file attached to the document.)
Is this in any way different from Enhance Scans/Recognize command?
One small drawback: it scans in the last used language setting. If that was German and your current document is English there may be an issue (but rescanning is allowed). Not that I've noticed any differences in OCRs made in a different language..
