drmrbrewer 1 Posted September 24, 2009 Share Posted September 24, 2009 OK, I have a two scanned pdfs, both OCR'ed so as to have an embedded text layer. Both original documents had the text "CHRIS NASH" within them, but one has been OCR'ed to "CHRISNASH" and the other to "CHRIS NASH".I was trying to locate all "Chris Nash" documents, and was using what I thought was a sensible search term: "nash". However, it became apparent that this only picks up "CHRIS NASH" but not "CHRISNASH". I would hope it would pick up any occurence of "nash" anywhere in the document.On the other hand, searching for "chris" finds both "CHRISNASH" and "CHRIS NASH".I can see that the search logic is to look for any word starting with the search term, but is there any way to search for the search term anywhere within any word in any document?Thanks,MikeP.S. Is there an easy way to edit/correct the embedded OCR text in a pdf, for example to correct "CHRISNASH" to "CHRIS NASH"? I have Adobe Acrobat 9 Standard. Link to comment
