Lesson 3. Creating Adobe PDF Files > Converting paper documents to Adobe PDF

Converting paper documents to Adobe PDF

Earlier in this lesson you used several different methods to create Adobe PDF files from electronic files. You can also use the Import Scan command of Acrobat in conjunction with a scanner to convert paper documents to Adobe PDF files. The resulting PDF file is PDF Image Only format in which elements on the page can be edited only as bitmap images; text characters cannot be searched or edited. If your converted document contains text, you may want to convert the document to PDF Normal format so that the text can be edited and searched in Acrobat. You use Acrobat Capture (not included with Acrobat 5.0) or the Paper Capture Online Web-based service provided by Adobe to convert documents to PDF Normal format.
