I purchased the MakeImage plug-in for ImageEn in August 2017. I wonder if there has been any upgrade since then?
The reason I ask is that I found some PDF files that are very strange to use with MakeImage and ImageEn.
One of these files is a 6 page file, Black & White, only 127kb. When it loads in ImageEn, only the first page displays. The remaining pages are blank. I have another 2 page file that does not display either page.
I was able to load the file into Adobe Reader and into Nuance PDF Converter Professional. Both display all 6 pages. Because the document contains some sensitive data, I tried to use PDF Converter to redact some data by using the Pencil tool to strike over it. The areas that I redacted now display in ImageEn, but the underlying image does not!
PDF Converter has an "Optimize" feature. When I use that feature, then ImageEn is able to display all pages of the file. It is not clear what this feature does, but the file size grew to 274kb.
The metadata says:
Application = OmniPage CSDK 18
PDF Producer = OmniPage 18
PDF version 1.6
The file does not appear to contain OCR'd text. PDF Converter pro is able to OCR both files. The files were scanned by OmniPage from bank statements.
I wonder if OmniPage 18 produces an unusual PDF file that MakeImage can not process? Or, is there a recommended method of using MakeImage in ImageEn that will give the best compatibility?
