Hi,

when I scan a multipage document with scannable then the text in it is not searchable inside Evernote (Windows Desktop App). I have a premium account so all other pdfs are searchable. 

If I scan only one page with scannable, the pdf document IS searchable inside Evernot... this is reproduceable every time.

So is this a feature or a bug? 

In short:
one page pdf = OCR is done and document is searchable
two and more pages pdf = no OCR, not searchable.

Is there any way to have OCR with multiple pages?

Thanks for your help.

Greetings, Birlie

Hi.  And yes.  It's one of the above..  there are a few other restrictions that apply to Evernote doing a native OCR on a standard PDF file,  and as an Android and Windows user I don't actually know whether Scannable is meant to deliver a searchable PDF file.  Have you tried reinstalling Scannable?  Using the Evernote Camera built into the full mobile app in Document mode to create a note?  If you have an un-OCR'd PDF file handy,  can you confirm the number of pages in the file and the overall file (or note) size?

I’d say a bug.  If you post an enex export of the note, I’ll test it on my installation
