Hi,

I have updated the Acrobat Reader pro, and the latest iOS, I can search words on the MacBook Pro but not on the iPad Pro. I use document cloud for scanned files, I also use the edit and enhance scans via the MacBook Pro so I can use them on the iPad Pro. I need to search for words on the iPad Pro so I am find the required information to answer an essay question. Yes I could use the mac but the iPad is more easier to use on the go.

Can you please help?

I do have another iPad and an android tablet I could try them but I prefer the iPad Pro.

Simone

Hi Djssford95,

As you have mentioned above, that it is and scanned copy of the document.

If you scanned the document then you have an image of all of the text, not the text itself. In this case, Acrobat Reader mobile will not find any text because it is an image of the text.

We now have a new app called Adobe Scan, which provides the OCR capability.

Check the "Correct" answer under the forum thread OCR using iPad verson of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC mobile app? where quite similar issue has been discussed.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Akanchha
