How can I create a PDF with searchable text via OCR on my 6515? (solved)

Jump to solution
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

Answering my own dumb question in case it helps someone else:

The OCR option is with the file type selection options. Where you see the file name and default .PDF extension, touch the .PDF extension button to bring up the panel with options including making a "searchable" PDF. 

 

I set up my 6515 today and things have mostly gone smoothly... I love the print quality and fast scanner, wow!

But in the marketing materials I saw reference to creating PDFs with searchable text via OCR function, and I cannot find the word "OCR" anywhere in the printer's own menu, or Mac or Windows software. I've scanned documents to USB to test, but for my users it's more likely that we'll want to initiate a scan from a desktop computer.

I'd be appreciative if someone could give me a hint!

Thanks, I had overlooked that stuff too. It's going to take a while to learn everything this baby can do.
