Document layout

Select the appropriate setting depending on how you plan to use the output document.

  1. Formatted text
    Retains the paragraphs but does not retain the exact positions of the objects and line spacing. Additionally, white spaces are used to reproduce paragraph indentations and tables. The text produced will be left-aligned. Texts in right-to-left scripts will be right-aligned.
    Vertical texts will become horizontal.
  2. Plain text
    Does not retain the formatting.
