When the Complex Structure of a Paper Document Is Not Reproduced in the Electronic Document

Before running the document recognition process, ABBYY FineReader conducts an analysis of the logical structure of the document and detects areas containing text, pictures, tables, and barcodes. The program then relies on this analysis to identify the areas and the recognition order. This information helps recreate the formatting of the original document.

By default, ABBYY FineReader is set to automatically analyze the document. However, very complex formatting may cause incorrect detection of some areas. Correcting only the problem areas is much faster approach than drawing all of the areas manually.

Layout correction can be performed by using the following tools and commands:
  • Manual area adjustment tools on the Image window toolbar.
  • Shortcut menu commands available by right-clicking the selected area in the Image window or the Zoom window.
  • Commands in the main Areas menu.

Restart the OCR process after making the desired adjustments.
