I have two vaguely related questions about the OCR functions of DT3 (which, as I wasn’t using DT2 Pro Office, is new to me).
I have an indexed folder containing PDFs. Occasionally, I’ll add a new file to that folder, and see in DT3 that its identified as a “PDF”, not a “PDF+Text.” I can OCR the item without issue, by right-clicking and choosing OCR->to searchable PDF. In doing so, however, it creates a new version of the file (with a “-1” appended). I’ve checked the “Move to Trash” option in preferences, but the file remains (with its new twin) in the Finder. Am I missing something on how to automatically delete the original un-OCRd underlying file and have only the PDF+Text file remain?
I sometimes drag images of text from a web browser to notes in DT3. Ultimately, I’d like to OCR the text of these files, so they obviously need to be converted from “Dragged Image.tiff” to something first. It may be because I’m dragging them to existing RTF notes that I’m getting stuck at this point in the process. Is there a smarter/better/internal way to do the conversion within DT3, rather than opening in Preview, exporting as a PDF, re-importing to DT3, running OCR on it?
Many thanks for your help - all of the new features in DT3 are so very welcome.
