Bug report in search tool

Post by MedBooster »

Just reporting this here in case it actually is a bug. When using the search tool I get weird results such as spaces being removed, and also the spelling of certain words changing such as subacute appearing as "aubawte" in the search results.

Let me guess, this is a document that has been OCR'ed.

In such documents, these kinds of errors in the (invisible) "actual text" layer are quite normal.

Right!

I suspect the same, that default OCR has been used that didn't get it quite right on the invisible text layer it adds.

I would be interested in knowing how that same document looks if you used the Enhanced OCR to actually convert the text to editable text. Please consider a test with a copy of the document.

actually I haven't OCR-ed it personally, but maybe the publisher or someone else has, so that would make sense. Probably no bug then. No big deal anyway, it is getting the results that matters, not really how they appear :)
