Hello, Is there a chance to set users paterns (programe/define) set page layouts? Would it be possible to programme minimum size of "text field”that abbyy and set its start (special marking to get specified data from page. It would be also usefull to have a chance to define a rule to read text fields in a certain order. Gennerall question would be? Is it possible to mess with layout recognition (word hypothesis analysis, and to choose a range of caracters to be recognized). Than you for your help. Your product is really the best on the market.

Unfortunately, it is not clear what exact ABBYY product you use. In general, this forum works for ABBYY Cloud OCR SDK users.

If your questions are concerned Cloud OCR SDK, we recommend you to take a look at the processFields method and to pay your attention on the article with some details in documentation. This method allows you to recognize several text fields on a page with specified coordinates of each these fields in an XML-file. For some fields it can be usefully to set the letterSet parameter or regular expressions in the XML-file. All the possible settings for each text field are here. The page layout should be strictly structured.

If your questions are related to ABBYY FineReader Engine or FlexiCapture Engine, please send them to with more detailed description of your usage scenario.
