Using Styles


When recognizing a text, ABBYY FineReader detects the styles and formatting used in the original document. These styles and formatting are reproduced in the output document. You can review and edit the document styles and create new styles to format recognized text in the Text window.

To apply a style to a text fragment:

  1. Select the desired text fragment in the Text window.
  2. Click Properties on the shortcut menu.
  3. Select the desired style from the Style list on the Text Properties pane.

Note: When saving recognized texts in DOCX, ODT or RTF, all the existing styles can be preserved. For details, see "Saving Editable Documents."

To create, change, and merge styles:

  1. On the Tools menu, click Style Editor…
  2. In the Style Editor dialog box, select the desired style and adjust its name, font, font size, character spacing, and scale.
  3. To create a new style, click New. The newly created style will be added to the list of existing styles where you can adjust it.
  4. To merge multiple styles into one, select the styles to merge and click Merge…. In the Merge Styles dialog box, specify the style into which to merge the selected styles.
  5. Click Save to save the changes.

You can navigate between text fragments printed in identical styles. In the Style Editor, select the desired style and click Previous Fragment or Next Fragment.
