    configuring Omnipage 18 to ignore double hyphen

    I am scanning a lot of transcripts in which the court reporters use a double hyphen for a long dash.  OmniPage 18 continually flags a double hyphen as an error even though I keep hitting the button "ignore all."  If there is some way to get a double hyphen into a dictionary or a training file, I could eliminate about 90 percent of the time spent in error checking OCRed transcripts.

    Semi colons, multiple spaces in a row, break zone templates...

    Semi colons, multiple spaces in a row, break zone templates with Excel

    I'm using Omnipage Pro 14 to scan in documents so that the content can be put into an Excel spreadsheet.  I create zone files for my documents, scan them, copy to the clipboard and paste into Excel; in general, all of this works well.  My problem occurs with cells that contain text, specifically text with semi-colons or more than one space between words.  They appear to scan in without issue; however, when I paste into Excel the semi-colons and multiple spaces will cause the text to break and spread into multiple columns regardless of my zone template.  Is there a way to stop this from happening?

    Saving Pages as Barcode number on scanned page



    I would like to know if it is possible to setup a workflow that takes a loaded PDF file with a barcode on it and then save the file as that barcode number?

    Basically the user will scan a form with a barcode on it. The file will automatically save to a scans folder with a file name of scan001.pdf.  My current workflow will save the file to a folder called processed scans and the file name will be saved as the original filename but with a timestamp included. Can I somehow save the output file as the barcode number that resides on the form?

    Your assistance will be greatly appreciated

    OmniPage automated pdf to word conversion


    I have Omnipage v. 17 installed on Windows 8.1.

    As I receive several legal documents in pdf (see attached file) and I need to convert them into Word format, I was wondering how to automate the conversion instead of doing it manually.

    I've saw that an automated workflow can be created, but the problem is that I haven't found how to exclude line numbers showing at the left side.

    Thanks for any help.


    Best regards,

    Cannot Deactivate


    Two license keys were accidentally activated on the same machine.  One of them needs to go on another machine.  The Deactivate menu item is grayed out.  We've tried removing, uninstalling the License Tool, and reinstalling.  We are still unable to deactivate one license so that it can be activated on the second machine.  Any help on this matter would be appreciated.

    [7/13/2015 7:42:48 PM] Error 48 : Activate License: The server couldn't activate license 'XXXXX-***-XXXX-XXXX-XX'.

    How Can I Change the Nuance Download Manager Target...

    How Can I Change the Nuance Download Manager Target Directory

    I just purchased a download version of OmniPage Ultimate.  The file available for download immediately after purchase is OmniPageUltimate_en.exe.  This is or invokes the Nuance Download Manager (NDM).  NDM starts download of the a compressed set of installation files but does not prompt for a download directory.  Instead, it puts the file on the Desktop.  My C: drive is very full, even after an afternoon for deleting and moving files and NDM tells me there may not be enough room for the download.

    How can I change the download directory?

    Reducing OCR processing time with more cores1

    Reducing OCR processing time with more cores

    A customer of mine is having a hard time with the amount of time it takes to process their documents with Omnipage. Their setup now is:

    - Intel i7-5960X Processor Extreme Edition
    - 3.0 GHz (3.5 GHz Turbo)
    - 8-Core
    - 20 MB Cache
    - 8 GB RAM
    - HDD 7200 RPM
    - Windows 7 Professional

    Would anyone know if adding more processing cores reduce the OCR-processing time or is Omnipage limited to the amount of cores it uses? Also, would adding more memory (greater than 8 GB) also reduce the OCR-processing time?

    I have done my diligent searching on the forums but couldn't find anything to answer these questions.

    Thank you in advance for any help.

    converting form to spreadsheet1

    converting form to spreadsheet

    I have a client that routinely gets a printed report containing upwards of 50 pages of information in the same format as the attached.

    I've downloaded OmniPage 19 for testing, but have been unable to figure out how to create the zones so that this document is translated correctly into an Excel spreadsheet.  The documentation is not very useful regarding this topic. 

    Can anyone provide any guidance on how to do this?

    Only the Administrator profile can see the scanner3

    Only the Administrator profile can see the scanner

    I'm at the end of my rope with this software and have spent nearly 3 full days getting it to work as intended, or by work around.


    My problem ?  ONLY the Administrator profile can see the scanner.  The system is set up in a public area in an education environment.


    When I log on as a regular user, the Scanner cannot be seen by Omnipage, nor does the Scanner Wizard work.  Yet, I have the Epson Software installed, and it has NO problems seeing the scanner.    So Epson = Here's your scanner ! and Omnipage = No Scanner.


    What's the deal with this thing ?

    Updates for Omnipage 181

    Updates for Omnipage 18

    My Omnipage 18.0, was installed in 2011.  I tried to find updates, from both the product and the Nuance website.  The former reports nothing; the latter has an error--when you click on "Here" link in the message "Downloads  Software updates, drivers, service packs and patches.  Here" it goes to a page that reads "Unfortunately, the content your are looking for can not be found."

    Does this mean there have never been any updates, service packs or patches, or that the website that provides them is not accessible from the Nuance website?
