Innovations PDFmdx Version 2.8.1:

Template synchronization:

This allows templates to be developed and tested locally, to be replicated to the processing servers later. Communication is via SOAP via http / https. This considerably simplifies and accelerates the matching and distribution of new and updated templates.

 

Anchor Field Search – New Features:

So far, the string for the positioning of the anchor field on the entire page has been searched (from top) and the first reference was assumed as the position for the anchor field. Therefore the function was extended.

By default, the anchor field search is now performed from the field position of the template. The next matching string is taken as the position for the anchor fields. A new addition is the ‘hit’ option. The number indicates the number of hits as an anchor field position. So eg. tFor example a scanned expression with different scales was created. The layout for the reading of the fields is created using a typical document and so far only considered the absolute distances and sizes of the fields. For this, we have now implemented an AutoScale function, which is able to automatically compensate for such different scaling to a certain.

 

Detect and remove blank pages:

Scanners do not always have a function to automatically remove them during the scanning process. For the further processing and archiving, empty pages are disturbing and should be able to be removed. With the current PDFmdx version 2.8.1 there is now a function to automatically detect and remove blank pages. The value specifies the percentage of the “white pixels” on a page. 95%. If a document is split, the found separator page can also be deleted. New addition is now also a function to delete the following pages of the separation page. Regular Expression Parameters to selectively extract numbers from a field:

RegEx expression “ d +” can be used to return numbers of a field. (E.g., the read-out field content is “page 15/110”, “110” is returned). With parameter = 1, the first number found in the string “15” is returned with 2 the second “110” and so on.

RegEx can also be used in combination with the additional string formulations:

Up to now, only the RegEx processing or alternatively the other string processing functions could be used. The RegEx processing is executed first, regardless of the type of the field.
