Compatibility with ABBYY FineReader OCR Layer

I can't get Nitro PDF Pro for Mac to recognize the OCR Layer created by ABBYY FineReader PDF 16 for Windows. I've tried numerous files. When I load PDFs made searchable by FineReader into Nitro PDF Pro for Mac, it views them as pure scanned PDFs with no text layer. I can't search for anything in them. Other PDF programs (like Mac Preview) recognize the text layer created by FineReader just fine and can do search.  Given that ABBY FineReader PDF is the Gold Standard for OCR the world-over, I'm stumped by this behavior. Maybe there is a setting I need to set? Can anyone help?
