Dialog Box: Advanced Processing Settings

To open this dialog box, click the Advanced Settings... button on the 2. Process tab of the Workflow Properties dialog box.

Option Description

Extract barcodes

(checkbox)

Select this option if you want to recognize barcodes.

Note. Code 32 barcodes are a subtype of Code 39 barcodes, and are also less common, hence they will be recognized as Code 39 barcodes during document separation.

For a Code 32 type barcode to be recognized correctly, it needs to be explicitly specified in the workflow settings

.

Aggressive detection of vertical text

(checkbox)

Select this option if you want the program to check for vertical text throughout the entire document. Otherwise, the program will check for vertical text only in tables and in CJK documents. Aggressive detection of vertical text is disabled by default.

Note. Selecting this option may significantly slow down image processing.

Special processing for technical drawings

(drop-down list)

Special processing for technical drawings is useful if you need to extract text from images with lots of fine details (e.g. from engineering drawings with shading and hatching). The original graphics will be preserved.

  • None (default)
    Special processing for technical drawings is disabled. Keep this option selected if there are no technical drawings in your documents.
  • Auto
    Enables special processing for technical drawings on A3-sized pages and larger. Other pages will be processed normally. Select this option if you are planning to process documents containing both regular A4 pages and A3 (or larger) pages with technical drawings.
  • Charts
    Enables special processing for technical drawings on all pages. Select this option if you are planning to process documents with lots of technical drawings on pages of all sizes.

Note. Selecting Auto or Charts may significantly slow down image processing.

Print type Specifies the type of the recognized text. For more information about text types, see the Text Types section.

Image processing profile

(drop-down list)

Image processing profiles automatically make required changes to images on Scanning Stations and on the Application Server. The program includes the following predefined profiles:

  • No processing
    Images are submitted for processing without any changes.
  • Default
    Contains recommended image processing settings.
  • Photo
    Contains recommended processing settings for photographed documents.
  • Scan
    Contains recommended processing settings for scanned documents.

To create new profiles, use the Image Processing Profile Manager (see below).

Edit...

(button)

Opens the Image Processing Profile dialog box, where you can change the settings of the selected profile.

Note. You can use the Edit... button to open a predefined profile and edit its settings, in which case the program will prompt you to save the changes under a different name.

Profile Manager...

(button)

Opens the Image Processing Profile Manager dialog box, where you can create or import a new profile, as well as edit, export, or delete an existing one.
Apply user patterns and languages

Specifies the path to a user pattern1. Click Browse... to select a *.ptn or an *.fbt file containing one or more user patterns and languages. If you select a file that contains more than one user pattern, ABBYY FineReader Server 14 will apply the user pattern that is currently active. If the file you selected contains user languages, the languages will appear in the list of languages on the 2. Process tab.

Note. For the correct operation of this feature, we recommend using patterns created on a Verification Station.

Ignore built-in patterns Select this option if you want built-in patterns to be ignored during recognition.
Apply area template Specifies the path to an area template2.

1 A user pattern is a set of pairs "character image — keyboard character" created when you train the program to recognize characters. User patterns can be created on Verification Stations, in ABBYY FineReader 11 (or later), or using ABBYY FineReader Engine. User patterns are a source of additional information for the program and may be useful for:

  • texts set in decorative fonts
  • large documents (i.e. documents of more than a hundred pages) of low print quality

2 An area template is a page layout that you save and apply to other pages in order to select desired areas. Area templates can be created on Verification Stations or in ABBYY FineReader 11 (or later). Area templates may be useful if:

  • You want to mark an entire page as a text area.
  • You want to recognize only a particular area on a page.
