Scroll Prev Top Next More

Some users may need to create a PDF file that cannot be searched by text.  This can be achieved by saving the PDF file as an 'image only'.  To create a non-searchable (image only) file, you'll just need to print to Win2PDF and then choose the 'Save as type:' to be 'PDF Image Only (PDF)'.


Win2PDF saves image only PDF as the file type


The resulting PDF file will still be a standard PDF file, but the text information in the original document will be converted to images.  This means that anyone doing a text search on PDF file will not be able to find any text matches.
