Saving Recognized Text in PPT Format

When saving the recognition results to PPT format, ABBYY FineReader automatically retains full page layout.

All saving options for PPT format are set on the PPT tab in the Formats Settings dialog. To open this dialog, click the Formats Settings button on the Save tab of the Options dialog or press CTRL+SHIFT+X.

Note:  When saving text in PPT format, ABBYY FineReader uses the fonts set on the Save tab in the Options dialog (Tools>Options menu) or those you set during text editing in the Text window.

When saving results in the PPT format, ABBYY FineReader creates special HTML files that contain the different parts of the presentation. To save the presentation as a single file, re-save it using PowerPoint (select Save As in the File menu and specify PPT as the saving format).
