I frequently use Abbyy FineReader with screen captures from Snagit 2019.  I would like to have a Snagit Output option to that program.

You can share captures with Abby Finereader through the "Program Sharing" feature.

I send captures to Photoshop all the time. On occasion I send them to Abby Finereader. But it's so rare I never made an output till tonight. Here's what you do. Add the program tab to your toolbar if haven't already.


Click on the Program Icon on the tool bar. Click manage on Program output.


In the next window that pops up you're going click the + to create a new capture profile. You're going to name the capture profile. You will be selecting an output type which will be image by default.

Plus, under the executable file you will be navigating to the EXE file in the Abby folder in your program files.



Once you have all that set up. Any image that is in the canvas area will be sent to Abby reader by clicking on the program icon. And then selecting Abby finereader from the choices available. If Abby finereader is your only option. You can simply hit okay and be done with it.
