Plus account can search text in PDF


Recommended Posts

According to Evernote upgrade webpage, "Find text in images, PDFs, and Office docs" is a premium feature. Unfortunately, I found it also works in my Plus account.

Is there anyway to turn it off? I do not want to upgrade to Premium exactly because I hate this feature. I have a lots of PDFs, and search any term will give me tons of results, which makes the search function useless.

If you add the term "-resource:application/pdf" to your search, this will exclude PDFs. I know of no other way to do this in the Evernote clients that I use (Windows, Android, web).

Any level of account has the capability to search OCR'd PDFs.  So if you OCR them yourself or download them the PDFs will be searchable.  I think the Premium option just OCRs PDFs that haven't been OCRd prior to being added to EN.  

In other words for a PDF's contents not be searched it can't be OCRd.
