Searching Scanned HP Manuals - Egan Ford - 07-08-2006

I am unsure if this is common knowledge. In any case I though I'd pass it along. Adobe Acrobat Professional has an OCR function that will create a searchable PDF from a scanned PDF leaving the scanned PDF intact. When searching the new document words are highlighted as if it were a standard text PDF.

So far I have indexed the 15C, 42S, and 48G manuals for my convenience.

Yes, I have used this function to extract Basic listings that I was too lazy to retype.

The way you use it is also very interesting.
