Locally hosted Document Processing (On-premise)

Version 1.1.17 (26 November 2021)

  • Fixed an issue with page ordering when using batch spitting, that could sometimes cause incorrect page numbering. [PO-10]

Version 1.1.16 (8 November 2021)

  • Fixed an issue when exporting a scanned document as DOCX [PO-624]

Version 1.1.15 (19 October 2021)

  • Improved the OCR engine to take advantage of multiple cores per job, on top of the existing ability to process multiple jobs at once. Add MaxWorkersPerJob as a new config value within C:\Program Files\PaperCut OCR\data\config\config.toml to control the maximum number of workers that can be assigned to each OCR job (Defaults to 1). [PO-452]

Version 1.1.14 (4 August 2021)

  • Previously when ‘Searchable PDF’ was turned on in a scan action the PDF file outputted could be larger in size than when ‘Searchable PDF’ was turned off; we have now addressed this issue and turning ‘Searchable PDF’ on should no longer significantly impact the size of the output file.

Note: if other options such as despeckle, deskew, or ‘remove blank pages’ are turned on then the PDF produced may still be larger when compared to a file generated without these options on.

Note 2: To enable this feature after an auto-update, please edit C:\Program Files\PaperCut OCR\pc-ocr.conf file to include an extra line:

Below this line
“-engine=v*/pc-ocr-engine.exe”,
Add this line
“-splice=v*/pc-splice.exe”,

This change is not required after a manual install, as your config file will be updated during the install process.

Version 1.1.7 (26 May 2020)
