What is page analysis?
When you scan a document or open an image file in Readiris PDF, each page is automatically divided into recognition zones.
To have them displayed, go to the Object Panel and click on the slide button (show/hide).
Readiris PDF uses those zones to determine how each part of your documents must be converted. If your document does not contain any zones, it cannot be recognized (OCR).
There are 3 kinds of recognition zones. You have text zones, graphic zones and table zones.
Each zone type has its own color.
You can also re-launch the page analysis:
- Click on Edit in the icons bar or ribbon
- Click on Analyze
Modifying the recognition zones
To change a zone type
- Go to the Object Panel
- Click on the slide button to show the zones.
- Click on the zone for which you want to change type. The Properties panel opens and the zone type is shown
- Change the zone type between graphic, text or table
Tip: for better recognition of a logo containing text, set it as a 'graphic' zone type
Note: if you want to do text editing, use the Text editor.
