batch rename using OCR in specific PDF area

Post by max76 » Fri Dec 01, 2017 10:12 am


1) I would like to know if it is possible to rename a PDF using text OCR in a specific area of this PDF.
2) As I have a bunch of PDF with all the same file name but different references inside them, I would ilke to select/open several PDF (or all PDF in a folder) and with a batch process, for each of them extract the specific text with OCR (always in the same area of the PDF) in order to rename each of them.

Thanks you for your answers !

Hello Max,

Thanks for the e-mail and enqury.
I am afraid that this is not possible with the OCR available in our end user products.
It is possible with the SDK/coding, but not with the stand alone products.
