I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi

short question...

Depends what you got. Best open in Acrobat Pro and use Document>OCR, then use Tools.Advanced Editing>Touchuptext tool to make changes.

I have tried that with on luck.  I scanned doc in text over image and it works but then I lose all the images and it throws random images on the  page.  I am not a cpu wiz and all I want to do is scan the doc to acrobat then edit it then print the doc and not have it look like it has been modified is that possible...???

Did you use 'Clearscan' as the Scan option or 'Search-able image'?

Didn't use either,  scanned from my hp scanner using my mac program then saved it to acrobat text over image...

I would try scanning it from Acrobat then use the OCR function and edit the settings when the 'Recognize Text' Dialog appears.

Select 'clearscan' and see if this makes a difference.

Selected clear scan this is what happens when I try to modify doc...(All or part of the selection has no available system font. You cannot add or delete text using the currently selected font.)   It wont let me select a font its like that option isn't available I can see the font but it's light gray and cant open

Can you select the text and open the font properties by rightclicking>Properties and changinging the font to a different type that looks close to the one you need?
