Re: Bulk OCR Existing Files in Folder SOLVED

Of the three options, I used "do not OCR but continue processing." I don't know why some were not OCR'd. I think there are 3 types of documents: 1.

OVG, you are the best! For some reason it didn't think of just saving it with the same file name.

Re: Bulk OCR Existing Files in Folder SOLVED

Ovg,

Thank you for your post. I agree. That is the window and the option in the bottom right. See how it will save a new file with an OCR name? I don't want that. I want PDF-Tools to open the file, OCR it, save it, and move on without creating new files or changing the file name.
