Silent OCR Update for DEVONthink

September 17, 2020 — Eric Böhnisch-Volkmann

Yesterday we have silently updated the OCR component of DEVONthink Pro 3. The new version fixes a problem with PDFs pages that were not rotated correctly. In addition, in some created PDFs the recognized text was not selectable.

To install the new OCR component choose the menu command DEVONthink 3 > Install Add-Ons…. When DEVONthink has recognized that there’s an update, the option ABBYY FineReader OCR will be checked for you. Click Install to download and apply the update. The new version will also be installed automatically for you with the next update of DEVONthink for Mac.
