i have thise code
tell application "DEVONthink Pro"
set sel to (get records of database "inbox")
repeat with s in sel
if type of s is PDF document and word count of s is 0 then
that results in an error
DEVONthink Pro got an error: Some parameter is missing for ocr.
what do i have to change to make this work? all i want to do is convert a PDF to PDF+text. basically what “data > convert > to searchable PDF” does.
DEVONthink Pro got an error: This command only accepts image files.
That was the missing parameter.
Beyond that, I didn’t implement the Applescript support so…
i see, thank you. should i create a support ticket or wait in here?
Though I can’t claim it’ll do what you want (and I’m not sure if it was implemented for this purpose), try…
convert image record s
```In a real quick test with a PDF selection, it fired up the OCR process.
PS: Are you reading the AS dictionary?
that seems to be doing exactly what i want, thank you.
yes i am reading the AS dictionary which says
i didn’t think a record of type PDF document is considered an image
Nor did I - but dictionaries are “hand-written”. I was surprised too but there ya go.
