Hazel - OCR in place, do not move

What do you do if you do not wanna move a file, the file is where belongs but you only want to OCR it and leave it in its location.

I went to OCR all the PDFs in my iCloud Drive, some which have already been OCRd.

I was thinking that I could just tag them and then tell Hazel to ignore any files with the OCR tag but would hazel just keep running in a loop if I did not move the files out of the folder it was monitoring

Hazel will keep checking the files that haven’t matched the OCR rule, but you won’t notice that it’s happening. What you’re describing should be okay.
