fixed : replace corrupted icon in ABBYY FineReader

Question :

I have the ORC Scan-to-Document converter software ABBYY FineReader. It works great, but there’s just one really annoying thing : the desktop icon is fine in smaller sizes, but whenever it needs to display in bigger sizes, it gets all scrambled up…

What is wrong ?

Answer :

The icon that is connected to your application seems to have corrupted images for the bigger (newer) icon sizes.

I haven’t been able to find big sized (512×512 and 1024×1024) icons for you, but these PNG-files will help you to quickly create new icons for ABBYY FineReader that will look good at most sizes :

ABBYY FineReader Express 8 (icon 175x175) for ABBYY FineReader Express 8

ABBYY Finereader 9 (icon 256x256) for ABBYY FineReader 9

ABBYY FineReader 11 (icon 256x256) for ABBYY FineReader 11

ABBYY FineReader OCR Pro 12 (icon 175x175) for ABBYY FineReader OCR Pro 12

Here’s how to convert these into icons :

– download the icon you need (just drag&drop from this website to your Desktop)

– double-click the PNG-file on your Desktop (it will open in Preview)

– press the CMD + A key-combo on your keyboard to select the image

– press the CMD + C key-combo to copy the image

– select the “ABBYY FineReader”-app in your “Applications”-folder

– press the CMD + I key-combo to open the “Get Info”-window

– select the icon (a blue corona will appear around the icon)

– press the CMD + V key-icon to paste the image into the app-icon

– press the CMD + ALT + ESC key-combo to open the “Force Quit”-window

– select “Finder” from the list and click the “Relaunch”-button

– then close the Force Quit and Get Info windows

…that’s it

enjoy !
