I thought Acrobat DC would be the answer. I'm scanning old books and then hoping to transform the text and line drawings into crisp black modern text & clean white paper or this not the right program/software ? I've gone through the Tuts but everything is geared to modern new documents. Thx 

Hi Stevesculptor,

What you are looking for, can be achieved using Adobe Acrobat DC as it has the ability to run the OCR (optical character recognition) which would help you editing the text of scanned document.

But it also depends on the type of file you start with. As mentioned that its a old book, so the actual fonts used to create the books should be embedded to edit the document in Acrobat DC.

For detailed information, you may refer to the help document here- Edit scanned documents |

Also, for testing you may use the 7-days free trial of Adobe Acrobat DC and see whether the result is up to the mark or not.

Download Adobe Acrobat free trial | Acrobat Pro DC

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Akanchha

RE; Acrobat DC

HI All, I am finding AA DC brill for editing. Can anyone tell me how to exchange fonts (quickly i.e. shortcuts) while in Edit PDF instead of having to scroll down the font list to change in every chapter! (scanning old books)

Thx
