How is the Erase tool in FineReader PDF 15 designed to work?
The Erase tool in the PDF Editor deletes the selected part of an image in a document, automatically selecting the appropriate background color to fill in the empty space.
For example, a selected part of an image you need to erase is in dark blue color as in the screenshot:
It will be erased and filled in with the dark blue color as illustrated below:
The Eraser tool in the OCR Editor erases the part of an image with the same principle by selecting the appropriate background color to fill in the empty space.
I am finding that the erase tool leaves a smudge instead of being clear white. How can I prevent that? I am trying to clear up "lines" along the edge that came from a scan and I am ending up with a light smudge instead.
Please try to select the area with more white color inside. If this does not help, then it is better for you to send us a file and we can try to check it on our side. For this, please create a support ticket: https://support.abbyy.com/hc/en-us/requests/new
