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, DOCX, and ODT formats, all styles are preserved.

Changing, creating, and merging styles:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Style Editor…
  2. In the Style Editor dialog box, select the desired style and adjust its name, font, font size, character spacing, and scale.
  3. To create a new style, click New. The newly created style will be added to the list of existing styles where you can adjust it.
  4. To merge multiple styles into one, select the styles to merge and click Merge…. In the Merge Styles dialog box, specify the style into which to merge the selected styles.
  5. Click Save to save the changes.

You can navigate between text fragments printed in identical styles. In the Style Editor, select the desired style and click Previous Fragment or Next Fragment.
