New Features

Post-Processing Steps

Run post-processing steps automatically after each text recognition. In this version we are introducing this feature with simple find and replace steps, but expect to add more advanced use cases in the future. Please send your feedback to guide the direction of this feature if you find it useful.

Custom Dictionary

Some industries have domain-specific lingo that can be tricky for the language correction. Use Custom Dictionary to improve language correction results by adding your words as a comma separated list.

Select Output Directory

You can now select the folder where instant PDF exports and automatic screenshots are saved.


These new options can be found behind the gear icon in the toolbar or Menubar > Settings. If you need any help getting started, please don't hesitate to get in touch!
