Re: OCR doesn't do anything

I had joined here yesterday and posted in this sub forum.

Now I see there is a specific sub forum for OCR plugin.

Admin is requested to please move this thread to that appropriate sub forum.

Thanks.

If possible, please don't give packs, give individually

I needed only English and Hindi OCR for English OCR, Languages included: English (3.0 MB), French (2.2 MB), German (2.3 MB), Spanish (2.2 MB) so, when I only needed 3 MB, I got to download and install other 2.2+2.3+2.2 which I would never need and never use for Hindi OCR, Languages included: Hindi (...

Re: OCR doesn't do anything

I opened a image pdf file in Editor and then in Viewer,
but "ocr pages" menu option is coming as dimmed (not active) in both.

So, it doesn't ocr images it seems, it only ocrs when the file is already text. What is the purpose then?

The said pdf file having image is attached.

Thanks.

Re: OCR doesn't do anything

Also, it should at least do cleaning up of text, like - merging different lines of a single paragragh to a single line, by removing extra cr-lf that comes in pdf. - putting header and footer only on first page, or wherever it has changed, and removing it from all other pages. I think adding the ocr-...

I did ocr because some text like " ' etc., were coming as junk in normally picked text, so I thought ocr would be able to recognise them correctl...

OCR doesn't do anything

I today downloaded and installed and ran the Editor. I gave it a 78 pages pdf file (only English) and proceeded to OCR all pages. It took hours and ended without doing anything or creating and ocr-output file. I again did this, this time for a single page, and it did nothing. It is not even asking m...
