How to Edit Scanned PDF in Mac OS X
Do not know how to edit scanned PDF in Mac OS X 10.7, Lion? I know how it feels, especially when you need to edit a scanned PDF emergently. However, you do not need to worry about it. Once you find the powerful PDF editor and learn how to use it, then you can edit a scanned PDF in Mac OS X Lion easily and quickly. In the following, let's learn how to edit a scanned PDF.
As I have mentioned previously, to edit a PDF tool, we need a PDF editor. Here, the PDF editor needed is not a common editor that only capable of editing native PDF, but OCR-based PDF editor. Why need an OCR-based PDF editor? Only with the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) feature, the PDF editor tool is able to digitalize the text in the PDF file and then edit the PDF tile. Otherwise, no editing is allowed on the scanned PDF.
There are a few powerful OCR-based PDF editors on the market, say Adobe Acrobat Pro X for Mac OS X. However, the price (more than $400) for Adobe Acrobat Pro X sounds a little bit like a rip-off for me. Here I strongly recommend Wondershare PDF Editor Pro for Mac. It is a cost-effective Mac PDF editor, which is able to edit both native and scanned PDF files the way you want the PDF to be. See how easy it could be to edit scanned PDF on Wondershare PDF Editor Pro for Mac.

If the PDF you select to open is a scanned one, a window could pop up, asking you to perform the OCR function and select the COR language. Just follow the prompt to do the select the OCR language.
Step 3 : Begin to edit the scanned PDF
