  2. The export of an OCR'ed document contains not just the values for each bounding box, but also the bounding box's x,y, coordinates, width, and height. This can be an extremely useful feature when dealing with structured forms / documents where the location of text contains valuable information.

  3. How long do I have to wait for Acrobat to recognize Thai text from scanned images/documents

    I am trying to recognize Thai text from the enhance document tool but Thai is not listed in the languages available. While I can't use this fucntion I also have to pay the same price as the others who can benefit from this feature.

  4. Why don't you have the recognize text as a tool on the right hand side of the page? It's a pill to have to hit "Find Tools" every time.

  5. Hello,

    I have noticed that some of the other OCR software performs better than Adobe Acrobat DC OCR function... i.e. Power PDF. I wonder if you can improve it's functionality as far as recognizing the characters is concerned?...

    Regards,
    Jeff Paarsa

  6. Adobe Acrobat won't work. I've spent 3 hours with two different tech support people, with them coming into my system. They don't seem to understand how OCR is supposed to work. They tell me that adobe thinks my handwriting is an image. Too bad. It's my fault. That is ludicrous. I thought I just didn't know how to do the final steps of a conversation to text. I know that OCR works. I just can't get it to work on my laptop with Adobe Acrobat DC that I pay for monthly.

    Can anyone help, who understand how it is supposed…

  8. After updating to version 19.012.20036 we have an issue with scanning. Example: We scan pages using our scanners document feeder. Then we select "Enhance Scans", "Insert Pages", "From Scanner" and feed more pages. Then when we try to load the feeder and scan additional pages, it won't let you select "Scan" again. If you click "Close" and then "Close" again in the upper right corner, it will let you scan more pages 1 time and then it won't let you do it again. Before, we could keep adding additional pages to the document feeder and keep scanning.

  10. Greek OCR should be fixed as it seems broken in the newer versions.
    Below you will find two paragraphs. 1st is from PDFXEdit (free tool) and second is from Adobe Acrobat 2019.021.20056 (costs two virgins and a first born child). It is expected for such an expensive software to make this process straight forward.

  12. [BUG]
    Description: After initially correcting the orientation of the PDF and then highlighting where needed, I then decided to use the find tool to find a word in my PDF. Unfortunately, the PDF was an image and so Acrobat had to enhance the scan to try and search for the word. After enhancing, the page orientation stayed the same but the highlight seemed to rotate itself in the orientation of the original document and not the corrected orientation as shown below.

    Steps to reproduce:
    1) Have a file with text that is scanned in vertically and is viewed as an…

  13. Maybe i am paranoid but I have a case against the Norwegian government. I would like to use my HP printer color laserjet MFP M477fdw against Acrobat that i am renting. That is not working thru an usb-cable.. Probably other instances too that usb is better.... When I try I get you have not internwt. It is files I do not want out on the internet but at the same time it would be better for med to make it digital than having the case on paper.

  16. This is challenging, but I'm sure you could manage:
    Many texts that I need to OCR have been scanned from books, so the text is curved. Right now, Acrobat only recognises text in straight lines, so it jumps lines when highlighting and copying text.Would be great if Acrobat Pro could judge, e.g. by analyzing the borders of text boxes, that lines of text are not perfectly straight.

  17. This is an OCR and Export issue. Because DC's OCR is not as good as it was in Pro, I get tons of errors that I correct. The correction is great unless the OCR grabs half a letter. However, if I export the OCR's pdf to Word, DC OCR's the pdf again and does not retain the corrections and will export with the same errors. That is crazy.

  18. Gesucht ist folgendes: ein Prozess soll einfach einen Ordner alleine überwachen und dann, wenn ein Scanner dort eine Datei ablegt, die OCR-Funktion alleine starten und das Ergebnis in einen anderen Ordner speichern.

  19. I sometimes receive files that have printed text that appears correctly but for which the underlying OCRing (or text derived from Word or another word processor) has become corrupt or is otherwise garbled and bears no relation to the visible printed text. An example is attached. It would be very helpful if there were a feature that allowed you to remove all existing OCRed text (or the underlying hidden text produced from the word processor) and run Acrobat's OCRing again from scratch.

    It's possible to print an image only PDF and then OCR this, but that is cumbersome, loses quality…

  20. When OCRing a document and you move to another program to allow the OCR to continue, the cursor is still the watch. This makes working in other programs difficult. The watch should only take over the cursor when you are actually in Adobe.
