I just scanned some documents in Simple Scan and saved them as pdf files. When I go to search in the pdf documents, I am unable to search. Is it because I used Simple Scan? Did I do something wrong? I downloaded a pdf file from the internet and am able to search through it with no problem at all.

Thanks but I think I need to rethink what I am doing.
I am digitizing my LP's. Some of the LP's I have have booklets that I need to scan so that I can search the info I need when doing my radio show from the computer at the station. Should I scan and save as something else or is there maybe another way of doing this that I am not familiar with? Some of the LP's I have a re no longer available so the notes within those recordings are of value to me.
Thanks again for help and suggestions!
Where I was getting mixed up is this. At the station, I use Google docs for my playsheets. I create pdf files by using the print to file option. I can quickly do searches on these pdf files. Scanning is a different kettle of fish. This is where I thought I could search text after scanning to pdf. I'll see if I may be able to just type the entire discography which is pretty big (over 950 songs).
I'll see what I come up with .
