I'm just trialling Acrobat Pro DC to try converting some old documentation to PDF, and convert it to MS Word format so we can update and edit the old documents.
I've scanned the original document in at 1200dpi and run a few enhancements on it to make it more readable, run OCR on it and corrected all the mistakes (of which there were quite a few, the original type-written document is quite poor in places).
Now when I attempt to export to Word, Acrobat re-runs the OCR process on the document and I get a horrible mangled mess of a document again. I can turn this off, but I just get a bunch of images in a Word document that I can't edit.
How do I get a Word document that includes the corrected OCR text that I have painstakingly spent 2 hours correcting in Acrobat itself?
Did you use the "Clear Type" option for the OCRing process?
I would save , close, then reopen the corrected PDF before converting to Word. This will reload the file in memory with the saved result and not what is in memory.
