To open an image:

Tip: If you want the opened images to be recognized right away, select the Open&Read mode:

  1. Select the Open&Read item in the Process menu or just press CTRL+SHIFT+D. The Open dialog will open.
  2. Select the images for recognition in the Open dialog.

Opening PDF files

The author of a PDF file can limit access to his PDF file. For example, the author may protect his file by a password or restrict certain features such as extracting text and graphics. It would be a violation of the author's copyright to access these restricted features, therefore ABBYY FineReader will ask you for a password to open such files.
