A new ABBYY FineReader document is opened by default when you start ABBYY FineReader. You can either start working with this new document or open an existing ABBYY FineReader document.

All document pages are displayed in the Pages window. The pages in the Pages window can be displayed either as thumbnails or as page icons.

To change the display mode:

To open a page, click its thumbnail in the Pages window (in Thumbnails mode) or double-click its number (in Details mode). In the Image window you will see the page image and in the Text window you will see the recognition results (if the document was recognized).

Note: When opening FineReader documents created in earlier versions of ABBYY FineReader, the program attempts to convert them into its new format. As this conversion cannot be undone, ABBYY FineReader will prompt you to save the converted document under a new name. All recognized text will be lost in the process.
