When converting PDFs using FineReader, how do you deal with pictures that are inside table cells? In the good old ABBYY PDF Transformer v2.0 (and in pre-9.0 versions of FineReader) it was possible to specify a picture area on top of a table cell. In FineReader v11 this doesn't work.

Hello Artem,

I have Finereader 12 and to specify a table cell containing an image, I select the appropriate table cell with the table pointer tool, then switch to the Area Properties tab underneath the main area and check the appropriate box there.

Best regards,
Stanislav

I should have been more specific. I'm talking about the cases where the cell contains both text and images, especially inline ones. What you describe works only if the whole cell is an image. Sometimes it's possible to split the cell into text and images, but it doesn't always work, at least not for inline images.

Hello Artem,

In such cases I always insert more vertical and horizontal lines in such a way that I can mark a single cell as an image cell and then merge those cells where the text gets split into several cells. Alternatively, I can perform several rounds of conversion: 1) export the whole document where all the zones are marked properly but images in cells are treated as text; 2) remove all zones in specific pages and then mark the image zones so that the exported Word document contains only these images and I can copy-paste them into the 1st document.

Best regards,
