Trouble with .pdf files

Recommended Posts

I have Premium features.

I have downloaded my handwritten notes via a single .pdf file. I am attempting to search through them or tag them.

However every time I click on the file, it simply opens it in a .pdf reader. I can't right click it or ask Evernote to do anything to the file. It doesn't seem to be creating a searchable (OCR'd) PDF.

I am using the web Evernote, must I download the product to my computer to accomplish this task?

Evernote has an OCR process for handwriting (https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208314518-How-Evernote-makes-text-inside-images-searchable)
- Only images, not pdfs
- This process is only for search indexing purposes.  
  If you want an OCR'd document, you will need to use an external editor.

You're limited using the web platform.  There's more options with the the other platforms, but not the OCR you're  looking for.
