OCR and conversion to excel

Post by jimcampbell » Wed Apr 17, 2019 3:33 pm

Hi

Can you help with OCR conversion to excel - the initial OCR conversion seems to recognise the pdf text OK but the conversion to excel has problems displaying the file in the same format

Thanks

Hello JimCampbell,

Thank you for the report, We are working on improving excel conversion output as time goes on, but it is a slow going trial and error process. So we cannot fix issues like this one quickly. With that said, It looks like the layout is a bit better if I use the new Enhanced OCR and convert from Version 8. The title is in the correct place, and the spacing of the other fields is not quite as broken. It certainly still needs improvements, but those are on their way.
