If a barcode is not detected

Barcode areas contain barcodes. If your document contains a barcode that you would like to render as a sequence of letters and digits rather than as an image, select the barcode and change the area type to Barcode.

To draw a barcode area and recognize it:

  1. Draw an area around a barcode in the Image or Zoom pane.
  2. Right-click the area and click Change Area Type To > Barcode on the shortcut menu.
  3. Run the OCR process.
