Why Is the Converted File Still Non-Editable on Mac?

If the converted file is non-editable, it means your PDF file is the scanned file or the image-based file, so you need to use the OCR function in PDFelement Professional for Mac to convert it. After opening the PDF file in the product, please click the "Tool ">" OCR Text Recognition" button,  choose the output format you want, move the "OCR" slider on the right side to enable it, and click the Document Language box to choose the correct language of your PDF content in the OCR language list, and you can also choose the page range you want to convert. Then convert it again, the newly converted file should be editable.
