Adding only text layer to PDF document in PDF Editor


Is it possible to add only recognized text to the PDF file without changing the image?


To add only a text layer to a document and exclude the preprocessing of its image, recognize a document in the PDF Editor and save it as described below: 

  1. On the New Task screen, click the Open tab > click Open PDF Document > select your document;
  2. In the PDF Editor click the Recognize button on the toolbar > Recognize Document... or press Ctrl+Shift+R;
  3. Specify the OCR languages of your document;
    If needed, here you can also enable some options of image preprocessing, such as Correct page orientation and Deskew images and correct image resolution
  4. Click Recognize button;
  5. After a text layer has been added, save the document by clicking mceclip1.pngbutton or Save As > PDF Document (Ctrl+Schift+S):

You will get a searchable PDF, in which you can search, select, and copy text.
