OCR option greyed out on some PDFs!?

Sun Oct 26, 2014 7:43 pm

Hi all,

I'm using PDF-XChange Viewer 2.5.310.0. I noticed that the OCR function does not work on some PDFs; noticeably, it seems it is with those PDFs that do not allow a simple copy&paste with the text tool, either (?) -which is pretty annoying, as it is just for these sort of PDFs that an OCR would make sense most.. :?

-Any idea on that? TNX!

Please check the PDF file properties (CTRL + D) and advise if the author of the document has secured the document and denied the ability to make changes ...

If you are sure there is no reason why changes should be disallowed - please send a sample file for investigation.

Many thanks
If posting files to this forum - you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded - thank you.

Best regards
