Yes, I'm using nothing but Acrobat for the entire process, and followed
the prompts on the dialogue boxes to access the OCR process.

To answer an earlier question - I didn't go straight from TIFF because
there are 632 TIFF files and merging them into one pdf is so much
handier :)

I would love to have a better program. Maybe this little glitch will
turn out to be a good reason to get one ;)

Thanks again -
