I am new to gscan2pdf 0.9.31, and just used it to OCR a scanned pdf. After saving the pdf, the OCRed text is stored on the top left corner. However I wish each OCRed character to be added to exactly where it was OCRed from, to make the pdf file text-selectable. Can I do that?

Thanks and regards!

I'm pretty sure the answer is just "no" but I'd love to be wrong. – Amanda Jun 8 '11 at 14:11

gscan2pdf does not work in my inputs at all. My test code gscan2pdf document.pdf. Then, just use defaults and do full scan. Output: nothing useful. Also in Ubuntu 16.04. – Masi Jun 14 at 20:27
