I scanned a very complex document using ABBYY Fine Reader 4 (came with my scanner) into MS Word 2000. It was almost impossible to clean up. I eventually had to revert to a text only document which I imported into Word and then applied the Word formatting. There is one remaining problem. (I tried to attach a pdf file to this post to show the problem, but it was rejected by the forum Post).
There is a very long Numbered list in one part of the document. It starts with item A and goes through item T. For some reason MS Word insists on having two items numbered "O". I have tried every thing I can think of to get the numbering corrected to no avail. I have even tried to delete either the first or the second item "O", but the list still has two items "O" after the deletions.
Does anyone know if this is a known problem or if there is something "fishy" with my scanned items? I have tried to see if there was some way to do the old "Reveal Codes - from Word Perfect", but could not find any way to see what is causing Word to act this way.
As a second part of this post - does anyone have a good technique for scanning documents into MS Word to ease the clean up task?
I will try any work arounds that anyone has to see if I can get rid of the two Item "O's" so that the list is logically correct.
