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 in the Text pane.

To apply a style to a text fragment:

  1. Select the desired text fragment in the Text pane.
  2. Right-click the selected fragment and click Properties on the shortcut menu.
  3. Select the desired style in the Text Properties pane.

When saving recognized texts in DOCX, ODT or RTF, all the existing styles can be preserved. See also: DOC(X)/RTF/ODT format.

To create, change, and merge styles:

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

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