Initially choosing the menu appeared to recommend, via a popup dialog box (IIRC), that I should install the OCR software. I closed the dialog box, but nothing appears to be installed.
Further, when examining the installed add-ons, I see that ABBYY FineReader OCR appears to be excluded from installation.
Is there a restriction with the demo/trial version that prevents testing the OCR capabilities at all?
I’ve searched the forum for relevant questions and answers, and I see questions about restrictions to scanning in the demo/trial version. Fair enough. But I haven’t seen any that say that the OCR feature is completely disabled in this mode.
I have the DevonThink Pro 3 installed on a 2018 MacBook Pro, running macOS 10.15.2. The scanner I have attached is a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M (using VueScan - because 64bit). I have a document scanned successfully with the scanner and sitting in my Global Inbox - all good - but how to OCR?
Yes, I saw that there is a limit in some of the other posts here on the forum. I understand that it is to stop abuse of this feature by people with no intention of buying the software - and fair enough, too.
From my reading of the other forum posts, there appears to be a daily limit set on the number of OCR conversions. I expect I’m well within the limit.
In my case, this was the first and only document I have loaded into DevonThink Pro 3. So that’s a bit weird.
I do have a trial version of the stand-alone ABBYY FineReader for Mac installed on my machine, separately. Maybe FineReader is getting tangled with the embedded ABBYY software. Who knows? ¯_(ツ)_/¯
