OCR Feature

I ran the OCR feature on a page I needed to extract text from. After it was run I tried to highlight the text to copy it into WordPerfect and a problem surfaced. The text layer does not seem to line up with the original graphic layer of the pdf. This causes a problem when trying to copy certain parts of the text.

I had tried it previously with a blueprint which measured 24" x 36" and the offset between the layers was way more exaggerated. See attached.

Hi Arnold,

I will forward this to our OCR developer and see what he has to say. He will comment here when he has the chance.

Regards,
Jamie.

Hi Guys,

we won't see our OCR developer team member until next week I am afraid due to the holidays. One thing I did notice guebert is that if you OCR your document again and this time select to "Convert Page Content to Image only - Add Text as Layer" then the OCR result appears correctly positioned. I have attached your "re-OCR'd" document.

Arnold, can you conform this also works for you?

Does not seem to help and in addition it rotates the page 180 degrees. I have attached the page I used so it can be tested on your end.

Thanks.

Hi Arnold,

We created a ticket (RT# 1395) in our internal ticket system, so we can easily follow this case.

Katya
