Re: Enhanced OCR not available?

EnhancedOCR.pvp should be placed in the plugins subfolder. There needs to be a "Common" folder, which contains additional files, which are needed for the OCR plugin. The thread is about the placement of this folder. As I don't use the installer for the Editor, I can't tell, where it should be placed...
