I convert all of my scanned PDF documents into text readable documents in Devonthink. It works fantastic.
I can search for whatever I want and it takes me directly to wear those words are in the document as expected.
But if I pull that document out, it no longer appears to be searchable in a PDF program like Skim.
Is there any way to make the PDFs available outside of Devonthink complete with the ability to search for words?
Frankly I never heard of or tried Skim. I use Apple Preview and sometimes PDFpen and I never noticed this issue. Try Preview and see if same problem.
What’s the Kind listed as in DEVONthink’s Info inspector?
How exactly do you do this? Just drag & drop?
It appears to be working fine. I must have done something wrong. Maybe I even used the old file prior to having Devonthink make the scan readable in a PDF+Text.
Sorry for the confusion and my error.
What you seemed to be reporting didn’t make any technical sense if it was a PDF with a text layer so thanks for the follow-up.
