Where is menu "text Props"?

Post by Peter2 » Tue Sep 15, 2015 10:03 am

I have a PDF with OCR-text.

In PDF-Viewer I select the text - right-mouse click - context menu - last entry: Text props - Dialogue is displayed.

In PDF Editor I don't find this menu. When displaying the props as side menu, then many infos are missing (see attachment).

Where to find these infos in Editor?

Hi Peter,

We do provide quite a lot of information in the Editor, it seems like we do not for now show the "Horizontal Scaling %" and "baseline offset", but there are quite a lot more tools that allow you to modify the text now, so that information is almost not needed. Is there any use case scenario where you need these values? (Please note that the Viewer was showing them but was not allowing you to modify the text, so having the info was not helping in any way :) )

Regards,
Stefan

Hi Stefan

the Editor does not show the coordinates either ...

The reason why I'm asking is that scanned drawings need
- OCR
- finding the position (coordinates) of the new strings
- "transform" (in a way which needs to be found ...) the content and the position of the strings to a vector-drawing.

This is why I'm thinking about "which text is where"?

Hi Peter,

We do have an OCR tool that will do all of this in the background, and place the text layer exactly where it has to be.
As for the placement information - if you use the Content pane - you can then select the objects containing various text elements, and see their coordinates (via e.g. Objects -> Transform Selection).

Regards,
Stefan
