the "image" option and transfers the text into Word as an image.
If you do not zone the text (either with the "automatic" feature or manually
by drawing the zones), then it cannot give you anything but a graphic.
Without the zoning, you have not actually told OmniPage to do the OCR, so it
will always give you a graphic format (PDF, TIFF, JPEG, etc.).
I have a simple OmniPage manual if you would like it. Just contact me

of blank pages. If we don't zone the text in Omnipage to be recognized,
Omnipage selects the "image" option and transfers the text into Word as an
