Saving and exporting

Once you have acquired at least one image for a document, you can export the image(s) to file. Once you have recognized at least one page, you can export recognition results – a single page, selected pages or the whole document – to a target application by saving to file, copying to Clipboard or sending to a mailing application. Saving as an OmniPage Document is always possible. OmniPage provides comprehensive support for Office 2007 applications and formats.

A document remains in OmniPage after export. This allows you to save, copy or send its pages repeatedly, for example with different formatting levels, using different file types, names or locations. You can also add or re-recognize pages or modify the recognized text.

With automatic processing and in Batch Manager jobs, you specify where to save first before processing starts.

A workflow may contain one or more saving steps, even to different targets (for instance, to file and to mail). A Batch Manager job must contain at least one saving step. See Chapter 5, “Workflows”.

Saving and Exporting

If you want to work with your document again in OmniPage in a later session, save it as an OmniPage Document. This is a special output file type. It saves the original images together with the recognition results, settings and training.

Exporting is done through button 3 on the OmniPage Toolbox. It lists available export targets. Some appear only if access to the target is detected on your computer. Select the desired target then click the Export Results button to begin export. You can also perform exporting through the Process menu.
