Do your high-quality Linux OCR solutions include one that allows me to:
1) select rectangular OCR areas of "image", "text", and "table" types for different OCR behavior;
2) add or subtract rectangular sub-areas to or from these areas;
3) OCR those areas while retaining basic character and paragraph formatting;
- and all of that using a stable GUI-based software?

I'm a professional technical translator who would like to be able to work on Linux. Being free as in speech/beer is not required, I'm prepared to pay the equivalent of FineReader price or slightly more. I did my own research recently, and none of the free or, bizarrely, proprietary stuff for Linux had all the required features. But I may have missed something.
