Possible to OCR after Import?

I have a scanned PDF file that I imported into DEVONthink Pro Office, but forgot to do “Import with OCR.” (I just did a regular import.)

Now that the file is already in DEVONthink Pro Office, is there any way to run OCR?

Or will I have to export it, delete it from DEVONthink Pro Office, and then import it again?

See the menu command: Data > Convert > To Searchable PDF, also available from the contextual menu.

I actually added an icon for OCR pdf in to my menubar under “Customize Toolbar”

(Control click menubar and add symbol).

Then when I see a lot of for example screenshots in .png, I mark them all inside the Group and just press the icon!

Thanks, korm. That’s exactly what I wanted.

That worked for me last time, but just now I’ve imported a scanned PDF (that was emailed to me), and when I click Data > Convert, there isn’t any such option (see attached image).

Any suggestions?

Do you have the PDF or the email selected here?
