Does anyone out there know anyway of editing text on a pdf scan without using adobe pro or any programmes that require downloading which I'm unable to do as its a company pc to which I don't have administration authority.
The trick I use is to go to one of the free online conversion sites and convert it to a word or rtf doc. You can then edit away in MS Office and, once you are happy, convert it back to pdf for locking. This usually works although some items will only convert the content to a graphic which is no use at all.
Print the scan on a printer,then put the printed page into a scanner,using the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) software that comes with most scanners,you can then,scan the page as a text page as opposed to a graphic,which will work with Word,Word Pad,or 99% of word proccessor software,simples.
If it is a graphic,print it,then scan it into your computer in whatever format suits you, then manipulate it to your hearts content.
