Re: Enhanced OCR not available?

Thank you BigMike for your contribution to this thread.

I tried several places for a copy of the Common folder, but I still can not get that Enhanced OCR plug-in to be recognized by PDF-XChange Editor V8.

I hope that Tracker Software Support is coming soon with an answer to this problem.
