Back in the old days

Making text changes in native Adobe® Illustrator® design files usually is a complete and utter nightmare for packaging designers. Unfortunately they are all too familiar with the cumbersome work-around to make even the tiniest copy correction in artwork files. A straightforward way of converting dead text to live text seemed non-existent.
That is … up until now.

The new Text Recognition plug-in for Illustrator is the only OCR tool that converts outlined text in artwork to editable text directly in Adobe® Illustrator®. The tool is so easy to work with, live text changes are a done deal in just seconds.
No more work-arounds. Just Adobe® Illustrator®.

Do the math

With the Text Recognition plug-in you easily save 30 minutes per job. Imagine the time you’d save on a working day, week, month or year! Not to mention the additional projects you can handle.
