Title: Import hocr
Post by: K-Veikko on February 08, 2018, 08:55:49 pm
I would like to see the possibility to import hocr files. Possibly with option to import it together with an image.

I visited here
https://wiki.scribus.net/canvas/File_formats_that_should_be_supported_by_Scribus_(wish_list)
but don't have the rights to add content.

My Usage for that option:

Often i use JBIG format to compress the image in a scanned page. However the embedded text does not follow the image altought it can easily be extracted from the original file into an hocr -file. So I have in my hands the compressed image and and the embedded text in an hocr -file but no means to combine them. I hope Scribus could provide a solution.

The embedded text should be imported and moved like an image frame so that it can easily be aligned (and if needed, resized) with the respective image.

So.
Basically I want to move the embedded text layer from one image to another image with exactly the same dimensions but different compression.
