Hi

am a longtime user of Abbyy Finereader 9.0 and usually very satisfied with the results.

But today I got a problem:

I scanned a thick book and wanted to OCR it. After processing by ABBYY, the result contained additional spaces between the characters. 

It is a german text, I show an example:

What can I do?

Andreas

P.S.

Now I found, when I export the result to Word-docs, I get a nice doc without such spaces.

But I would like to export to PDF containing the original Image, as sometimes there are up to 25% errors due to a bad scan. The text should be behind the image, so that I can cut and past to quote that part.
