(Archived) PDF searching



Hi, I've just started using Evernote, and I'm a bit confused as to what PDF functionality is and isn't included.

So I've got my semester timetable as a PDF. I've imported it, and tried to search it, but I just get random boxes popping up rather than any of the actual text. I know that "image pdf's" are a premium feature, but it's completely searchable in Preview, so does that not mean it should be in Evernote?

Thanks for anyone who can advise.

Since the search is finding the note itself correctly, this isn't related to text recognition or OCR. This is, unfortunately, just a Mac PDF display bug. We've found that certain PDFs cause this issue, where our search highlighting rectangles don't align with the original document.

I've filed a bug on this issue.
