I have passed the attached image link (Image Link)]1 through the OCR SDK and although it has made a good job of picking up most of the text it has not kept the format and text alignment of the original document. Therefore I'm not able to parse the text as I want. Are there and settings I should be using. The resulting text File I got was.

What output format you tried, TXT? If you really depend on text location it is recommended to use XML instead.

Unfortunately, in the current version of ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK the formatting of bills is often not retained. We recommend to get the recognized text with its coordinates via XML output format, and then process the result on your side. We are sorry for the inconvenience!
