The HTML Tab in the Formats Settings Dialog

Set parameters for saving the recognized text into an HTML file:

Option name

Option description

Code page By default the code page is detected automatically. Select the Auto value to use the automatic detection. Still, you may select the code page manually if necessary, just choose the value you need from the list. 
Code page type Specifies the code page (Windows, DOS, Macintosh, ISO).
Picture resolution Specify the picture resolution to be used in the HTML format. In most cases the default 72 dpi resolution will do.
Note: Pictures are saved into separate JPEG files (*.jpg).
Keep line breaks Set this option if you want the original arrangement into lines to be retained the HTML format, otherwise the text will be formatted in a single line in the HTML file. 
Retain text color Set this option if you want the original character color to be retained.
Use solid line as page break The original arrangement into pages will be retained, pages will be separated by a solid line.  
 Formats group
Full (uses CSS, requires Internet Explorer 4.0 or later) If you set this option, the new HTML format - HTML 4 - is used. It supports any type of the document layout retention (the actual retention type used depends on the options set on the Formatting tab in the Retain layout group); the built-in style sheet is used.
Simple (compatible with all browsers) If you set this option, the HTML 3 format is used. The document layout is retained approximately: first line indent and indents in tables are not retained. This HTML format is supported by all browsers (Netscape Navigator, Internet Explorer 3.0 and later).
Auto (saves two formats in one file; browser autoselection) Both formats (Simple and Full) are saved to the same file. The browser you use will select the format it supports.
Reduce picture resolution to

Sometimes you may want to reduce the image resolution. For example, HTML files are usually viewed in a browser, so there is no sense to save high-resolution pictures in such files. So, you may reduce the image resolution (so reducing the HTML file size) without actually loosing the visual image quality: enter the necessary resolution value in the Reduce picture resolution to field.


  1. If you enter a higher resolution value that the source one in the Reduce picture resolution to field, this value will be ignored; the pictures will be saved using the source resolution.
  2. Usually, the default value of 150 dpi is suitable.
  3. If a PDF file has been added to the batch, when exporting it to PDF, HTML, RTF, DOC, Word XML or PPT formats the resolution of pictures will not exceed 300 dpi.
JPEG quality

When you save an image in JPEG format, the so-called "quality loss" algorithm is used to compress the image, i.e. the compressing technology is bases on averaging the groups of pixels, so that a whole region is saved as a single number and not as a big number of numbers that describe each pixel. The value specified in the JPEG quality field allows to set the desired quality of the image. You may specify a value in the range 1 - 100 (the default is the average value of 50).

The higher the value you specify in this field, the higher will be the quality of the image you save. The size of the image is also affected by this value: the higher the value, the larger *jpg file you get. In order to tune the best proportion size/quality, try to save the image with different JPEG quality value, and then open them in an image viewing application.
