    I have few documents in pdf format... but even the text is in image (?scanned) format..

    I'd like to use copy-paste functions which i cant do right now because of the image pdf format. Is there any software with which I can convert the image (scanned) pdf format to text pdf format? .. the resulting file shud be pdf itself and I shud be able to copy the text on the clipboard.

    regards

    ps - i just heard somethg called as OCR can do it... can anybody suggest a best OCR around with preferably less size?

    shareware will do.

    ABBYY finereader 8 is the software you are looking for but it is really expensive...
