Editing a User Pattern

You may wish to edit your newly created pattern before launching the OCR process. An incorrectly trained pattern may adversely affect OCR quality. A pattern should contain only whole characters or ligatures. Characters with cut edges and characters with incorrect letter correspondences should be removed from the pattern.

  1. From the Tools menu, select Pattern Editor….
  2. In the Pattern Editor dialog box, select the desired pattern and click the Edit… button.
  3. In the User Pattern dialog box, select the desired character and click the Properties… button.
    In the dialog box, type the letter corresponding to the selected character and select the desired font effect (italic, bold, superscript, or subscript).

    To delete characters that have been trained incorrectly, select the desired characters and click the Delete button.
