I am not 82 but a lot yes . I used to help for search problem. Get texte from old books.
You scan, export in pdf. (In your case you have allready pdf).
You can use ABBYYY Fine Reader14 which eat pdf and export Pdf with searcable mode.

I can work on one of your Scribus 1.4 pdf file, if you want.



That was an old post when I was very new to Scribus

It's all been long since resolved now but thanks for your offer all the same
