Hi janice jaafari,

Can you explain what you mean by “save the function”? Or perhaps walk me through what you were doing in a previous version.

Thanks,
Lori

this isn’t helpful.  I am trying to run ocr on an existing pdf and save the function for future searches.  The old adobe acrobat pro worked great, can’t seem to find the same functions in the DC version.
