I am using Adobe PDF Pack with Acrobat.com to do some electronic filing of my medical records. One of the documents I'm working with was scanned as a PDF without any text recognition. So, as I have done before, I exported the PDF (Saved on Acrobat.com) to a JPEG so that I could then re-convert it to a PDF with text recognition/searchable text.
The problem I'm having is that a file exported to JPEG is saved as a zip file on Acrobat.com and no matter how I try to download it to my Android phablet (Samsung Note 3), I get an error that the file cannot be downloaded and/or opened. Please see the following screenshots:
As I don't have immediate access to a laptop night now, I need to find a way to get the zip file from Acrobat.com to my phaplet and unzip it as the Adobe PDF Pack PDF converter will not convert JPEGs in zip files and there is no way to unzip the file on Acrobat.com. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Hi Guitar Geek,
Since you have PDF Pack, I'm wondering why you opt for converting to JPEG, rather than Word format if you want searchable text? PDF Pack performs OCR by default--and you won't run up against PDF Pack saving your files as a .zip file, as it does with JPEGs.
Thanks for your reply to my question.
The reason that I opt for converting/exporting to JPEG vs. Word using PDF pack is because the documents (my personal medical records) with which I am working contain "OCR-readable" text, color/b&w graphics, and handwriting. I assume converting from the non-text searchable PDF (from my scanner) to a Word document would mean I would lose everything but the text or that the document would just be a jumbled up mess. Thoughts?
I'm simply trying to find the best way to digitally preserve my personal medical records as text-searchable PDFs using PDF Pack, my scanner, and my Android "phablet".
Ramzan please explain your problem in detail.
