PDF Software Suggestion

Good Morning,

I'm looking for a PDF software that I can purchase that will convert a PDF into a searchable image text file. I'm working on my family tree and have had a DNA test done with Ancestry. I can print to PDF but I can't search on it. I would appreciate any suggestions. If you need additional information please let me know.

Thank you in advance.

RE: PDF Software Suggestion

Optical character recognition (OCR) converts image files into text format. The full version of Adobe Acrobat will do this, or you can google for "free OCR software".

Thank you spamjim :)
