Moning All,

If I have 500 PDFs can I separate the OCR'd ones from the not OCR'd ones?

If so, how, what software, and what is the exact process?

Cheers

You can't examine a file without opening it, and if you use Acrobat you also can't open it without displaying it.

If you're willing to use other software it's certainly possible to check the number of words in each file without actually displaying it on the screen, and move it to a different folder based on the outcome, but not in Acrobat.
