Hi all. I’ve been using EagleFiler for a long time and love it. I’ve got myself an HP sheet-fed scanner now and want to start scanning documents, bills, etc.
I’m using the HP scanner software, then importing the PDF into Acrobat Pro and running the OCR stuff on it, then saving it. If I do a spotlight search for a word in the receipt (say, “Staples”), spotlight finds it. So does DTPro Office (for which I just downloaded a demo). But EF doesn’t. I import the PDF, can view it, but when I do a search I see nothing; no results are found. I even quit EF and let it re-index on launch and still nothing.
Am I doing something wrong? I don’t get why the OCR is definitely apparent in Acrobat (I can highlight and copy-paste text), in DTPro Office it’s definitely there (both having it do the OCR and importing an Acrobat-saved PDF+Text), but in EF it doesn’t seem to be indexing.
I really don’t want to buy another piece of software just to have to do this (I suppose I could use DTPro (non-Office)) and would like to keep all these documents in EF, where the rest of my stuff is.
Anyone know why this might be the case?
