When I OCR a page, I get separate text boxes and I can't copy all of the text at once?

In Acrobat Pro X, recognizing text would result in a continuous flow of editable text, which I could continuously select and copy all at once. Now I get separate text boxes - how can I continuously select and copy across text boxes?

To select all text from the page/file, either exit from edit mode or run OCR from Recognize text tool.

Thanks.

Hi awheeler1000,

This is as design behaviour and it may vary document to document.

You may file an enhancement request via this link: Acrobat for Windows and Mac: New (453 ideas) – Share your feedback on Acrobat DC  and help us with your comments.

I have the same problem (Re: Copy all text from multiple text boxes at once ). I used to be able to use OCR text recognition to select all text in a document at once in previous versions of Acrobat Pro. I recently requested Acrobat Pro DC for 3 of our customer service rep's so they could recognize text on scanned purchase orders and copy it into a program to pull out the pertinent data, but if they have to select each text box individually, Acrobat Pro will be nearly useless for this purpose and we're going to have to end the subscription. Is there any way to select all text at once? That'd be pretty disappointing if Adobe removed that feature.

That's almost correct. The key is to make a change (however minor) to the document while in Edit mode first and then exit Edit mode. If no change is made, it will revert back to the original image with no text recognition.

This is what Adobe Scan does to:

In that case you can use Recognize text tool instead of Edit tool.
