Use the Page Range options to determine the page range to be enhanced. Page range options are detailed here.

Select/clear the Apply Adaptive Compression box to enable/disable adaptive compression. If this option is enabled then select options in the Color/Grayscale and Monochrome dropdown menus to determine the type of compression for these formats.

Use the slider to select between Small Size and High Quality as desired.

Use the Filters dropdown menus to set options for deskewing, background removal, descreening and text sharpening as desired.

Select the Recognize Text box to perform OCR on the pages.

Click Edit to change the language and/or accuracy of the OCR operation. Note than increasing the accuracy will also increase the time taken to perform the operation and vice versa. Note that two optical character recognition engines are available in PDF-Exchange Editor: the Default OCR engine and the Enhanced OCR engine, which is available when PDF-Exchange Editor Plus is purchased (either as a stand-alone product or as part of the PDF-XChange PRO bundle). The Enhanced OCR engine is faster, more accurate and more dynamic than the default OCR engine, and it also contains some extra features. Further information about the Enhanced OCR engine is available here. The differences between these engines are detailed here.
