dttg test.pdf (8.8 MB)
my first post - please be patient with me…
- I take a picture with DTTG (portrait format)
- Then convert it to searchable/readable pdf in DTTG
- New pdf looks odd - it’s in landscape format and somehow squeezed.
Iphone12, current/newest iOS, newest DTTG
DEVONthink ToGo takes “pictures”. They don’t (yet?) provide a feature to scan a document.
I avoid this problem by taking a scan and exporting that into DEVONthink ToGo (if that’s where I want it to go). While I normally use (for years) the app “Scanner Pro” there are other apps, including Notes on iOS that scan in B&W, grey scale, and color which might work better for you. Certainly the file sizes are smaller and I would say the results are better than using a photograph.
new object (German: Neues Objekt)
new picture (Neues Bild)
convert to searchable pdf.
P.S. I’ll try Scanner Pro - thanks
Suggest you try Notes first. Already on your iOS device. Scanner Pro has some great features (creates PDFs, for example) and I’ve used for years, but now has competition. I use “share” button to get into DEVONthink. Not free, though. Also Dropbox App has scanning. Probably others.
just tried notes - that works for my requirements!
I use the scan documents feature in the IOS Files app

Yep. As I said, there are others.
I filed an issue on the distorted OCR document. Thanks for reporting it.
