    searching a PDF

    CJohnD

      Can anyone suggest a method of searching for a word in a pdf document that has been downloaded and which was originally scanned from a book?

          In order to do that, you would have to run OCR (Optical Character Recognition) on the PDF which can't be done in Adobe Reader.

           

          Adobe Acrobat has that ability and so do some other dedicated OCR applications.
