Full-Text Search in Recognized Batch Pages

Important! You need Internet Explorer 4.0 or later to access this option.

ABBYY FineReader allows you to search all recognized pages for words in every possible grammatical form. The search pattern may consist of one or several words. The search term may be in any form (for languages with dictionary support), and the search process will identify the indicated words anywhere within the text (no matter how far apart) and in any order.

To do a full-text search:

  1. Select Advanced search in the Edit menu or press ALT+F3.
  2. The Search window will open below the Zoom window.
  3. Enter the desired text in the Find what field. You can also paste the Clipboard contents into the field or select a previous search from the drop-down list.
  4. Click Find.

The Search results window will display the list of batch page numbers that contain all of the words from the Find what field. The date that each identified page was modified will be displayed and the first page section to contain the search pattern will be highlighted. Click on a page number to open it in the Image, Text and Zoom windows. The found words will be highlighted in color in all three windows.

Note: The search function cannot locate specialized characters, such as end-of-line characters or paragraph marks.
