Mac implementation is terrible! Summary Having used Abbyy on our windows computers, I must say I was very disappointed with the poor user experience I've had attempting to use the Mac version. Seems like the Abbyy company has taken a page from the play book of Quicken with reduced features etc for the Mac version - a huge disappointment as it appears the company seems to think that Mac users have diminished OCR requirements than Windows users, otherwise why have features and functions been deleted in the Mac version? I downloaded the Abbyy Finereader Express version for Mac demo version. However, once I decided to buy it, there was no way to upgrade or buy a license from the application, as in most other programs. Instead I had to download the program again from the purchase page on the Abbyy website - waste of time! Then the activation process is quite hard to understand and lacks logic.
