video on changing text orientationJul 30, 2011

I can't see how this changed anything. It looked the same in the right window at the end as it did close to the beginning (as soon as it showed there at all). I assumed that the idea was to stack the letters vertically:
s
t
a
r
t

like that.

What am I missing?

Yours,
Susan

What about the order of processing?Jul 30, 2011

I recently bought ABBYY Finereader 10, and one of the functionalities is to number the sections in the order in which they are to be processed. This option is hidden by default. I can't make out what difference it makes to the user what order they are processed in.

I have a document that I was using for testing, to which this question may apply. It has a rather complex table, which I finally learned how to fix up. Under the table, at the bottom of the page, is a space for signatures by parties to a contract, with a line for each signature, their typed names, their signatures ("pictures") and notarization-type seals. It's this stuff at the bottom that I haven't been able to fix. The signatures, etc., either get stuck under or over the table, or under or over each other. I tried to fix them, but the result was that the stuff at the bottom was thrown up to the TOP of the document.

I took your tutorial because I hoped it would help me solve this problem, but I'm afraid it hasn't.

Yours,
Susan
