Uploading scanned pdf results in error


This is definitely weird, I am uploading a scanned pdf and getting: “No text could be extracted from this file.”

I understand that since this is scanned there’s most likely no test, but can’t chatpdf accept it and read it as an image or something so I can ask about it?

Same issue here. I know it can do image-to-text so probably a missing implementation when trying to read PDF as it assumes all PDFs are text based.

Seems to be a lot of issues these days. Can’t read scanned PDFs, can’t browse, typing issues when using the app and so on and so on… I’m frustrated…

I have been recently been having the same issue. It was working a couple weeks ago but all of a sudden it stopped reading the same pdfs it was reading. Hopefully, there is a fix soon.
