Does anyone have any ideas how to move PDF layers between files? The problem:-
I have a PDF that is stored as images, but mostly writing
I ran it through PDF sandwich - this creates a PDF with searchable text via OCR, but it makes the source black and white and removes any pictures in the document.
How would I apply the hidden searchable OCR text layer from one PDF, onto the pure graphical ( it much prettier) source PDF?
Any ideas? Do I need to hack pdfsandwich myself? Boosts welcome!!!
@category i would first try the other ocr options and if those don't work then unfortunately i think hacking is the least manual option i don't think any of these maintain source image quality but u can try https://askubuntu.com/questions/473843/how-to-turn-a-pdf-into-a-text-searchable-pdf
