How can we make Xodo even better?

Text recognition OCR

It would be nice if we had the ability to recognize text in a PDF so we could use the commenting tools properly. I currently use adobe to recognize text and then upload to Google drive to use in Xodo.

        OCR haben auch andere Programme. Zur Zeit nutze ich auch Foxit aber ich möchte komplett umsteigen und Foxit deinstallieren was leider schlecht geht da ich Foxit für die OCR nutze.

        This seems to be the only capability that seems to be lacking. Even if you were to offer a companion app that only did the OCR that would make it worthwhile.

        Indeed. Text recognition would make Xodo even better. Hope you can get to it. Thanks.

        Absolutely needed. Having to download another program which is so slow in ocr, then searching in Xodo is cumbersome. Please and thank you!!

        xodo is the best app for my smartphone. An improvement could be countless favorite files and not just a limited number, ocr (such as' a fairy text)

        it is about one functionality missing comparing to Adobe. The highlighting works much better with text than images not to mention text editing. Great idea
