  2. Even after removing text layer, Acrobat refuses ClearScan OCR because "page contains renderable text."

    Even after I remove the hidden text layer in a PDF, I'm still not able to run an OCR with "ClearScan" (i.e. "Editable Text and Images"). It's strange because the text layer appears to be gone, yet running OCR produces the error "Acrobat could not perform recognition because: page contains renderable text."

  5. Enhance Scan<Camera - allow for entire document in one single click

    Allow this feature to be used for the entire document by a single click. Now it has to be done manually for every page.

  8. Cannot type special characters (e.g. š, č, ć) when correcting recognised text

    For example, if I type "Tomić" when correcting recognised text, after clicking "Accept" it changes to "þÿ".

    I'm using Acrobat DC version 2018.011.20055 on Windows 10 Pro version 1803.

  9. Georegistration tool - Renew the availablility of georegistration tools.

    Many softwares are geospatially aware and can operate on a GeoPDF. Unfortunately most PDF based maps don't typically inherit and/or include a geodetic coordinate reference system (CRS), as the source is often a scanned map or JPG, PNG or other non-spatially aware image format. The ability to easily create a GeoPDF is a valuable way to promote their use, and the previously included georegistration tools were very effective. Assuming that the CRS uses a standard WGS-84 GCS the process is straight forward and easily performed. An enhanced toolset could include standardized alternate coordinate systems with translatable codes - such as…

  10. Please add OCR support for East Asian Languages (CJK) in vertical format

    Currently Acrobat Pro DC recognizes Chinese and Japanese (and probably Korean) in left-to right horizontal format, but does not handle vertical text reliably. The apparent reason is that in edit mode text areas are always defined horizontally. An explicit configuration option for vertical text would fix this. The attached file if a pdf scan of the first section of a recently published Japanese book.

  11. PRO DC Does not perform OCR well if at all

    Pro DC is awful for performing OCR. It recognizes very little text, even with a clean scan. It also does not install native Windows fonts to add text to a document. XI did both of these things very well.

    I use Adobe Acrobat to convert images to ext. After upgrade to DC, Acrobat will no longer recognize text. Why? Error box says Adobe is probably corrupt and to reinstall. I did. Same problem.

  13. Latin OCR support

    An ocean of old texts are in Latin. Many of these need OCR. Support on this would be most welcome as they are often the subject of academic work.

  14. Bad Sequence of Events when Scanning

    I scanned a document into Acrobat Pro to create a PDF. I then mailed the original document to the destination. Acrobat then forced me to sign-in & the document scan was gone. If you are going to force a user to sign-in, consider doing so before you let them use the tools.

  15. Bug: Errors when trying to "scan-optimize" a signed PDF

    I have a signed/certified PDF. Manipulations on this document are per se forbidden. However, Adobe Acrobat Pro DC allows to run the scan-optimizer (OCR, rectification, etc.) which causes a row of error messages: For every PDF-page, it shows two pop ups.

  18. Improved text scanning

    Preprocess text scans by determining the fix width used for spaces recognizing that the gaps between words can be integral spaces. Use that information to bound the locations containing characters within a box which have no room for one or more space between them.

    During later text scanning make the presumption that the box contains text only and no spaces so that "2012" is not scanned as two fields such as "20 " and "12 " or as "20 I " and "2". Recognition of space wideth can also be used to determine with greater accuracy when some blob is…

  19. Improved scanning process.

    Preprocces to recognize features of forms such as boxes with or without checks and the boxes around fields.

    I scan image documents to be able to search for technical reviews or to export them to excel, access, or word. Current situation: On forms empty or full check boxes are frequently recognized as text and the text is wrong and takes a long time to correct. The same occurs with text near boundaries around form fields. If form type features such as check boxes and field boundaries can be recognized by a scanning algorithm very different from the small box scan…
