Windows 7: *quick PDF question*

*quick PDF question*

Hello all....for my classes I converted the pages into printed PDF pages so I can have the book as an ebook but when I try to do OCR recognition within PDF it says "Acrobat could not perform recognition (OCR) on this page because: This page has graphics other than images or text on it. It cannot be captured"

To go around this; I want to do a "fake scan" or scan it from the PDF files themselves rather than scan the pages on an actual scanner (since I have the files already on PDF on my computer) so I can then do the OCR text recognition. Does anyone know a way to do this?

Thanks for your help in advance!

What are you actually trying to accomplish. What you are trying to do sounds rather strange. What is wrong with keeping the .pdf format.

I want to have OCR text recognition! It won't let me do OCR text recognition with the current format. I paid for the ebook via the publisher's site but the publisher doesn't have it as PDF (makes you go on the website to view the book) but I want to have a PDF copy of it to work with it offline away from the publisher website (so I can do custom highlighting etc.) on my own copy of the PDF. That is why I want to do a simulation scan so hopefully the error will go away and then I can do OCR text recognition on it.

Would it not be easier to store it with a program like doPDF ( PDF Creator - Convert to PDF free with doPDF ).
