Searchable file formats

I do genealogy research and would like to scan articles or pages of books and then have DTP search the files for various terms. I do not have the ability to use OCR but can scan and save as a PDF. Will DTP search and find, for example, “55th Ohio Volunteer Infantry” in a scanned PDF?

No, you have to perform OCR first. But as DEVONthink Pro Office provides this, you could have the ability :wink:
