(Archived) PDF scanning

Recommended Posts

Is there any real reason why images in PDF files aren't scanned? Will this eventually be fixed?

Seems silly to scan other image formats but not this.

(Or am i missing something obvious on how to make this happen)

A JPEG file contains a single image of a single type. A PDF file may contain hundreds of different images, in a variety of different formats. Some of those formats aren't currently implemented by Evernote. As a result, extracting all of the text from all of the images contained within a PDF for search purposes is a much bigger task than we'd originally hoped. We still plan to do this, but it's not a trivial task.
