I'm happy to sacrifice my hard copy to scan, but OCR I way above my competence level. But willing to unbind my hard copy for the greater good.

At the same time I think I would laminate all of the pages and put it in a 3 ring binder.

Worth doing evil?

Optical Character Recognition is a common feature in PDF programs. So basically you open a PDF and click a button and the computer recognizes the text and makes it searchable. I don't see a need for you to cut yours open as I think there are PDFs online.

The 90/110 factory manual PDF floating around has already been OCR. Unfortunately there was no editing of the output, and so it now looks like crap in some parts. I wish someone had the original.

My OCR program does not change the look at all, it just makes it searchable.

Yeah. That's normal. But whatever was used on the 90/110 manual actually changed the text. I wish they hadn't.
