In this tutorial, we will show you how you can turn the text of a scanned PDF document searchable using the PDF Multitool.
First, let’s open the scanned PDF file in the PDF Multitool.
When you right-click on the document, you can toggle on the different options to see what the PDF document contains. In our case, the PDF file only contains an image object.
Click on the Make PDF Document Searchable function under the Utilities folder on the left panel explorer. This will open the settings page.
Fantastic! We have successfully turned the scanned PDF file into a searchable PDF document.
In this tutorial, we learned how to identify the objects inside a PDF file by toggling on the different object options. We also learned how to make the texts in a scanned PDF file searchable.
