  • Descartes SS5 should work for converting the raster text to text elements. I've not had very much success attaching PDF's in Raster Manager and using the Descartes vectorization tools. You will need to print the PDF to a different format, I would suggest using a modified version of the MicroStation tiff driver. 

    Edit the default tiff.pltcfg file and up the resolution. The default is 300dpi, I would change it to something like 1000dpi

    Print your file using the Monochrome color setting in the print dialog along with this driver. 

    I've done this multiple times when given pdf's to vectorize, and get much better results printing a higher resolution, monochrome tif image.

    FYI... The OCR options for picking up text and cells have been removed from the CONNECT Edition of Descartes.
