    converting "image pdf text" to "text text" – for good

    stephtara

      I have a book-sized collection of PDF documents that are "text as image" (scanned). I am trying to convert them to "text text" so that one can open the resulting PDF document with Reader and have "proper text" in them.

       

      So far, I have found how to edit the text in document, but that only seems to apply to the page I'm viewing. If I export the document as "text" to check what has been transformed from image to text, I only get snippets of the document. I have also found out how to make the image text searchable, but that keeps it as "image".

       

      What is the best way to achieve what I'm trying to do – ie, export a document of editable text with decent text flow?
