Creating a project

Before you can start processing your documents, you need to create a project. A project includes:

  • image import profiles
  • one or more Document Definitions
  • batch types

Once a project is created, upload it to the Application Server.

Projects should be created on the Project Setup Station and uploaded to the Application Server via the Administration and Monitoring Console.

When you launch the program, the Open Project dialog box opens, where you can select one of the existing projects or to create a new one.

Important! If you open a project created in an earlier version of ABBYY FlexiCapture, this project will be converted to the new format required by your current version of ABBYY FlexiCapture and you will no longer be able to use it in earlier versions of ABBYY FlexiCapture. The version of ABBYY FlexiCapture used for creating a project can be found in the corresponding Project.version.txt file, which is created for each new project and stored in the Attachments folder. The ABBYY FlexiCapture version in this file will be updated whenever you open the project in a newer version of ABBYY FlexiCapture or download the latest version of the project from the Application Server.

If ABBYY FlexiCapture is already running and a project has been opened, to create a new project select the menu item File → New Project....

To create a new project:

  1. Click the Create New... button.
  2. From the Project type drop-down list, select General as the project type.
    Note: ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices allows you to create projects geared to processing invoices. To create an invoice processing project select Invoice Processing as the project type. For details, see ABBYY FlexiCapture for Invoices.
  3. Specify a folder for storing the project and a project name.
  4. Click Create.
