Hello,

I need to have all the numbers on my drawing selectable, because I need to link the numbers on the drawing to the numbers in the text below the drawing. My plan was to OCR scan the numbers and I got acces to ABBYY FineReader 12. ABBYY FineReader 12 recognizes the text good, but he see the drawing just as a drawing and don't look further on the drawing for the numbers. So my question is; "Is there any possibility to configurate the scanner that he recognizes the numbers on the drawing?" I hope someone have faced the same problem and have a solution for me. You can find the drawing at the attached files. Thank you all in advance!

With kind regards,

Koen de Haan

Here is a link to a file witch has to be recognized. If you scroll down to page 14 you see a drawing and some text underneeth it. I need the numbers of the parts on the drawing to be scanned.
