Working with Scanned Text

If you want to be able to edit the text you've scanned into Acrobat, you can convert an Adobe PDF Image-Only file to one of three formats:

  • Adobe PDF Formatted Text and Graphics, used for most standard PDF files, replaces bitmapped text with editable text in actual fonts that look similar to the ones in the original document.

  • PDF Searchable Image (Exact) retains the bitmapped appearance of the original document, and the searchable text is supplied on an invisible layer below the bitmap.

  • Searchable Image (Compact) segments the original image to allow different areas to be compressed, sacrificing image quality but resulting in a smaller file.
