Using Styles

During text recognition, ABBYY FineReader detects the styles and formatting used in the original document. These styles and formatting are reproduced in the output document by creating the appropriate style hierarchy. If necessary, you can review and edit the document styles and create new styles to format recognized text in the Text window.

To apply a style to a selected text fragment:

  1. Select the desired text fragment in the Text window.
  2. Select Properties from the shortcut menu.
  3. Select the desired style in the open Text Properties panel from the Style list.

Note. When saving recognized texts in RTF, DOC, and DOCX formats, all styles are preserved.

To modify, view, create, or delete a style:

  1. Go to the Tools menu and select Style Editor…
  2. Select the desired style from the list of available options in the Style Editor dialog box. The right-hand side of the dialog box contains the selected style settings (style name, font name, font size, font effects, character spacing, and scale). You can change these settings as needed.
  3. To create a new style, click the New button. The newly created style will be added to the list of available styles. Select the appropriate settings for the new style in the right-hand side of the dialog box.
  4. To delete all styles, click the Remove All button.
