OCR feature not available in PDF XChange Viewer 2.5.194

Hi,
When reading the webpage it seems OCR should be available in PDF XChange Viewer 2.5.
However, I can't find it anywhere.
Under menu Documents I only get
Insert pages...
Insert empty pages...
extract pages...
delete pages...
rotate pages...
crop pages...
signing
Atttach file...

I have an enterprise licensed installation. Help files states that this feature is comming in 2008(!) Help file is not very update although it states copyright -2011.

I installed the base language pack and there were no error messages. However, no OCR buttons anywhere.

Anyone experienced this ?

Best regards,

T

It is important to mention that OCR was first introduced in PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5 build 200 !

You can find this out by reading its version history, available here:
http://www.tracker-software.com/PDFXV_h ... 2.5.0200.0

So, the first thing to do is to remove your actual version 2.5.194, restart your pc, and then download and install the most recent version 2.5.213, available here:

Please (support people at Tracker Software) correct me if I am wrong.

Regards.

Hi Willy,

As usual, we're greatly appreciate the answer :)

That's correct - although you should be able to download and run the installer over the top of your existing installation.

Here's a direct download link:

Cheers, hope that helps!
