Single Column Document

Situation description: practically any line is marked as a separate block; every block is saved in a separate frame block in Microsoft Word (the Retain full page layout mode is selected).

Single column document


This problem is due to the fact that the application treats text zones which are widely spaced as a multicolumn text and divides them into separate text blocks.

Solution: FineReader has a special option to recognize such documents correctly: Single column. This indicates that it is a single column document. To set this option:

  • Select the Single column item in the Document type group on the Recognition tab (menu Tools>Options).
