not to threadcrapping but can anyone show us the advantage of this verse adobe acrobat profession 8 a few month ago in FP ( I think is still free to download and use)...
That is a good question. My reason for wanting to try this is for integration with Office 2010. The Acrobat 8 Pro that was/is available does not integrate with 2010 Office. It can however integrate with Office 2007 after you go through a lengthy upgrade process to get it up to version 8.3.1. At home, I have 2010 on my main PC and 2007 on my laptops. If this Expert PDF were as good as Acrobat, I might just use it for all my systems to make things uniform.
Adobe also seems to be more of a resource hog in my experience.
Given my experience so far with 'expert pdf', I'll probably be sticking to Acrobat Pro 8.3.1
Can't get that far. I go through the 'recognizing text' step for each page, then try to save and it crashes every time, even on small single pages pdfs. Prior to save, the search says 'no matches'.
Granted, I am doing this on my archaic work computer. (XP with limited RAM and slow CPU). Perhaps I'll have better luck at home tonight on my main PC running Win 7.
FYI: The word search feature is not the OCR. PDFs that were converted directly from Office are automatically searchable.
The problem is with pages that were scanned into PDF. They cannot be searched unless they've been run through OCR and converted into a searchable PDF.
Maybe you are correct. I just experimented on a png file. It is a screenshot I took of a Frys.com order, the final receipt page after checkout, for my records.
I clicked on create PDF, dragged the png file into the window, converted it to PDF, then ran OCR.
It couldn't find text for the "frys.com" logo on the top of the page, or any of the tabs below it, but it did OCR everything pertaining to my order itself, including the order number, text of the product, etc. So I don't really know how OCR works on that type of file.
Did this on 6yr old dell laptop 2gb ram, xp, with other apps open.
I'll save everyone the effort of clicking the links; 8122-0411-DT2T-A1F4-38B1-324G
Download the trial, click "help" then enter the registration code.
If you already entered the registration code once, you don't need to do it again. When you close the program after entering the code and then re-open the program, it will pop you to a registration page. Just X out on that. It doesn't know if you filled it out or not. No pop-up's after that second process.
Thanks, your number worked fine. I couldnt find where to put my email to get that code. I'd rep you if I knew how..
Can anyone tell me how to use this to add fillable forms to a pdf I've created? I'd like to allow people to fill forms out online or after I've sent it to them. I've looked through the help section and various menus and can't seem to find anything. Am I missing it or is it just not available?
