Editing the OCR Layer

(Advanced feature of Nitro PDF Pro)

Make corrections to the OCR text layer.

  1. From the View menu choose to view OCR info. A layer of text will appear over your document, showing the normally invisible OCR text.
  2. Select some text and a popup window will appear with options for editing the text one word or line at a time.
Changes to the OCR text layer are not the same as changes made using the Correct Text tool 
correct_text
since changes to the OCR text layer are not made to the visible text of the document.

Also, similar to using the Correct Text tool
correct_text
, this is aimed at correcting typos and small errors, not reformatting an entire document. For layout changes and major edits, Exporting to Microsoft® Office Formats, and make changes in a word processor.
