Searchable PDF converted into non-searchable

Postby AlexISS » Wed Apr 19, 2017 9:35 pm

Hello, My vendor's order portal generated a pdf for me that, when I see it in Internet Explorer or firefox, is very much searchable. But when printed to the latest dopdf version I just instlled, it is no longer searchable. Why would that be? Thank you

If you have a PDF and print it again via doPDF it will result in a non-searcheable one. You should create a PDF from the original document to have it be searchable.
