I understand that I can edit PDF documents, but I'm having trouble getting Adobe to recognize my hand-written PDF scans. I exported them into WORD and EXCEL and neither are translating the handwriting accurately. Does this make sense?
This answer does not help me at all.
To make text editable, Acrobat has to do somethin called OCR (Optical Character Recognition). This is nothing like as smart as the human eye. It needs a good clear scan of an original laid out in a clear and typical font in standard paragraphs. Handwriting is a long way from this; editing this sort of thing remains a dream.
