Mark JL 5 Posted September 4, 2013 Share Posted September 4, 2013 Excuse me if this topic is covered elsewhere; I have not been able to find it. I use PDF files created in Adobe Acrobat extensively both at work and personally. I will often use Acrobat's "Add Text Box" feature to create additional notes on those PDF files before I add them to Evernote. Unfortunately, once I do add the document to Evernote, I am finding that Evernote will not search for and find any text added using that feature of Acrobat. It will find original text in the PDF, but none of the additional notes. I understand that Evernote does not OCR documents that already contain recognizable text, and for that reason I also run (or re-run, depending on the document) the Acrobat OCR feature AFTER adding the notes and BEFORE exporting to Evernote. I thought that doing so would make the added text searchable, and indeed it does do so within Acrobat: a search in Acrobat will successfully find the added notes. But even after doing the Acrobat OCR, Evernote will not search for and find anything in those added notes. Does anyone out there know of a solution that will allow me to add such notes to a PDF file and make them searchable? I know that I could simply add notes to the Evernote note that contains the PDF, but I need to put the notes directly into the PDF for other purposes and would love to be able to find the documents by searching for them. Thanks,Mark Link to comment
