Re: How to edit a scanned / ocr document

Hello, I'm on Win 10 x64, on pdfxchange version 8 build 331.0 (enhanced ocr), but when I OCR a document the text is still unable to be edited.

Re: Flattening not working on signature stamp

Ok, so stamps are considered as comments. Is there a way to make an electronic signature be tied to a signature stamp say, so it can't be altered without it being known? Again, sorry for the duplicate post, I couldn't find a way to delete my prior post. Thank you!

Flattening not working on signature stamp

I'm using a transparent png signature stamp on a document, but it refuses to flatten using flatten comments. Never had this problem before, until now (Editor Plus ver 6.0 build 317.0). Any ideas as to why I can still edit the content on a flattened pdf?

Hello,
I was wondering if there was a way to highlight a column or arbitrary region of text. Currently when you use the highlighter function it grabs entire lines with no apparent option to not do so.

Hello,
Save As Copy doesn't automatically open the new copy of the file in the Editor. Is there a way to change that behavior? If it can, my end users would be far less likely to permanently alter original documents. (Version 5.5, Build 311.0)
