Column (Newspaper) Paragraph Minimum Width - Many PDF documents are formatted with column paragraphs, or newspaper-style paragraphs. To assist in the recognition and conversion from PDF to Word for these types of paragraphs, the user can designate the minimum width for column/newspaper paragraphs.
The Investintech PDF conversion engine contains complex algorithms for differentiating between table columns and paragraph columns ““ however, in some cases, it is very difficult for the engine to distinguish between these two types of paragraph. The Column (Newspaper) Paragraph Minimum Width setting allows users to improve conversion results by providing input regarding a PDF document”™s structure.
Example ““ If it is known that a given document does not have any column/newspaper paragraphs with column widths of less than 3.00 inches, changing the Column (Newspaper) Paragraph Minimum Width to 3.00 inches will prevent the conversion engine from treating certain table columns as column/newspaper paragraphs.
Notes: The Column (Newspaper) Paragraph Minimum Width setting should be between 1.00 and 3.00 inches
The default for this setting is 1.35 inches.
