Thank you. We can reproduced the “Incorrect encoding” error.

The PDF format itself does not use the standard encoding for a text. It uses ASCII with replacement dictionary or special CMAP - tables, which define how to convert a text from the PDF’s presentation to Unicode.

So if it is possible for your purpose we recommend to use the custom export script.

But how i can get and setup that script..?

Sorry. Please address this questions to the regional support.

Hello, but what kind of solution did you prefer ? export we need two files, one pdf searchable and one data file with contents from pdf - how in that case we need setup export settings ?

More details about custom scripts can be found in the article “Using scripts in ABBYY FlexiCapture > Scripts for customizing processing stages > Types of scripts > Export script” in the Developer Help 

If you need further assistance - that will need deeper investigation of your project than forum format allows, so you'll need to address your regional support of professional Service Group.
