Q: After scanning a file to PDF, the text is not editable, despite following the steps in the “Editing text” movie. How do I make a PDF with editable text?
A: Text may not be editable after scanning to PDF since most scanners scan a document and convert the contents to a digital image. To check if text is editable, open the PDF and select the Text and Image tool. Position the pointer over the "text" in the PDF, and if a I-beam cursor appears, it's text. If not, it's most likely an image. In that case, the image needs to be converted to text first by choosing Document > OCR Text Recognition > Recognize Text Using OCR, then choosing ClearScan as the method.
