How to get checkmark images to identify as text

Hi,

 

I have a pdf that lists the prices of different items and then at the bottom there are color options with checkmarks if it applies to the item. I am converting to an excel file to manipulate the data but I need to be able to reference the checkmarks but they are considered images when I use recognize text in adobe and when I convert to Excel. any ideas how I can adjust this. Such as making all the checkmarks an "x"? I'm not sure how I would mass edit these items though. I highlighted the checkmarks I'm talking about below.

 

Thanks,

I don't think this is going to be possible if there's no text there at all, just an image. To do something like that would require quite an advanced (and custom-made) tool that will identify the images and place an X or something like that below them. Such a tool will probably need to run outside of Acrobat, though.

You can try using Adobe Acrobat's "Edit PDF" feature to replace the checkmarks with "X"s manually. Another option could be using Excel's find and replace function after converting the PDF, searching for the image labels and replacing them with "X".

Hi,

Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, I tried both of these. You can't
find and replace images (which it identifies the checkmarks as) and there
are thousands of records so manual replacement isn't really feasible.

Thanks,
