I have some PDFs that I would like to OCR using the API, but there's already some text layers in it. The API seems to skip the entire PDF instead of OCRing the image data.

The best way to accomplish this is to use the Properties API to detect which pages are image only, then use the split API to pul those pages out of the PDF, send them to the OCR API, then use the Insert API to add them back to the original PDF.
