Very new user to DTPO here, so excuse me if this is a very basic question. I’m using a Scansnap S1300 to scan directly into DTPO. So far, the two work incredibly well together. However, I’m having a problem with Spotlight searching.
While my PDFs are OCR’d and fully searchable within the DTPO search function, only the title is searchable in Spotlight. Digging into this a little deeper, it appears like the original scan (located in my User–>Pictures folder) is not OCR’d, while the image within DTPO is OCR’d. What appears to be happening is that the original scan goes into this folder, then a copy is sent to DTPO, where it is OCR’d by DTPO.
I’d like for the entire text to be searchable both in DTPO and Spotlight. If searched the forums and tried to implement some of the suggested solutions. “Create Spotlight Index” is already checked. I’ve tried to rebuild. Yet Spotlight still doesn’t search the body of my PDFs.
Given that the Scansnap S1300 is new, I wondered if it or its software is the problem. This new model comes with ABBYY software, so it can OCR by itself Should I change settings to have the original scan OCR’d by the Scansnap software, then send it to DTPO?
I’d very much appreciate any advice experienced users can give me. I imagine this problem may have occurred with the S1500M or other models with OCR capabilities. Thanks a lot.
