    Why does making my PDFs searchable compromise their visual quality?

    jmt111 Level 1

      I wrote some Internet pages to PDF. This results in non-searchable files (in contrast to saving Word documents to PDF, which maintains the OCR in the PDF).

       

      Once written to PDF, I run OCR on the Internet pages that I saved to make them searchable. This significantly compromises the visual quality of the files. Is there a reason for this or a way to avoid it?
