Import hocr

Previous topic - Next topic


I would like to see the possibility to import hocr files. Possibly with option to import it together with an image.

I visited here
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.

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