Is there a way to index PDF annotations?

#1

Hi all.

I'm evaluating oc on my personal webspace (is present in cPanel installations via Softaculous)

The thing I need is this: I use a lot of scanned handwritten documents. Obviously I can't OCR them, but for me it's good enough to "tag" the section I need for later retrieval. I'm using OneNote, now, but it's a real pain in the ass because of horrible syncing speed

Would it be possible to do it in ownCloud? It would be a real life saver

Thanks!

Hi,

unfortunately this is not possible automatically as oC doesn't provide such an parser. However you can tag your .pdf manually since (i think 9.0).

There is an effort to build metadata-app, currently with a focus on pictures and media files but perhaps other file types can be added as well:
