PDF Document


PDF (Portable Document Format) is one of the most popular document formats on the Internet, in electronic archives, etc.

FineReader can open, recognize, and save PDF documents either in one of the four save modes (text and pictures only, page image only, text over the page image, text under the page image) or in any other supported format.

To specify a saving mode for PDF:

  1. Select the Formats Settings item in the Tools menu.
  2. Select the required mode on the PDF tab of the Formats Settings dialog.

PDF is often used for publishing documents on the Internet or sending them by e-mail, where download speed is crucial. PDF documents created by FineReader meet this requirement. The structure of created PDF files will allow users to view the first pages before the entire document has been downloaded.
