OCR Images that already in the database?


I’m new to DevonThink so please bare with me. I’ve imported a bunch of documents and had DevonThink OCR all the pdf files - amazing! Now I realize I have a few jpeg scans that I’d like OCRed too. I can’t find an easy way to do that though…

I’ve tried using the menu option File -> Import -> Images (with OCR), but that takes me to the file menu, so I need to find the file that’s already in the database. It works, but it’s really painful.

It seems like this should be an obvious option in the right-click menu to me, but perhaps I did something wrong that got me out of a normal flow?


You should see right-click > Convert > To Searchable PDF
