  2. Insert Unicode prefix Some text editors add codes 0xFF 0xFE to the beginnning of Unicode text file. We recommend to add the prefix unless you are sure your software does not support it.
  3. End of line style You can choose between Windows and Unix style. We recommend to use Windows style unless you use legacy Unix software.
  4. Insert page breaks Adds page brake symbol. As an alternative, you can add {PAGE} to outlut file name to save pages to indvidual files.
  5. Formatting Style Miraplacid Text Driver can format extracted text different ways. Unfortunately, there is no way to make it look exactly like the original document. Plain text files do not support different font types and sizes and cannot condence or expand characters. However, Miraplacid Text Driver Text Formatting plug-ins do a really good job in most cases.

Formatting Styles

If you need your text to look like the original document, please select Formatted text.
If you need just a text without formatting, select Plain text.
If you familiar with XML files processing, you can try XML output. It saves textboxes with text, size, location and font information. Besides, it contains page size and DPI settings.
RSS-Atom formatting style allows you to save information in Web content syndication formats RSS and Atom for further using in news exchanging services.
Text with Layout is similar to Formatted text, but based on previous version of text formatting algorithm.
We recommend to use "Formatted text" unless "Text with Layout" works better for you.
