Whether you are working with documents at a production or small batch level, most likely you will need to review and adjust them in the document pane. This chapter describes how to review and update documents before releasing them for indexing, further processing, or writing to a content repository.
4.1.1 How do I automatically review and index documents after capturing them?
After you scan or import a batch, its properties are displayed by default in the right pane. You can set a preference so that the document pane is automatically displayed instead, with the first page in the first document of the batch selected.
Click the drop-down list arrow in the upper right corner of the window and select Preferences. The Preferences window displays.
Select the Auto Review/Index batch after scanning field.
4.1.2 How do I zoom in and out of the selected page?
Use the Zoom In, Zoom Out, Fit to Height, Fit to Width, and Fit to Window buttons to enlarge or reduce the image in the viewer to examine image quality. These settings are not saved with the batch. When you open a batch, its images are always displayed in the Fit to Window size.
In the document pane, click the Zoom In button to enlarge the image. Click the Zoom Out button to reduce the image.
Another way to zoom is to click and drag a rectangular area on the image using the left mouse button (rubberband zooming).
Click the Fit to Height button to change the page display so that the entire height fits in the window.
Click the Fit to Width button to change the page display so that the entire width fits in the window.
At any point, click the Fit to Window button to display the entire image in the viewer.
4.1.3 How do I resize or reposition the thumbnail display?
You can display the scrollable thumbnail bar either vertically (default) or horizontally. To resize the panes, click and drag the pane separator (How do I resize the window’s panes?).
After you resize or reposition the thumbnail display, Capture saves the new settings for subsequent sessions.
In the document pane, click the Thumbnail size button in the toolbar.
Select Small, Medium, or Large, and the thumbnail size changes to reflect your new selection.
Click the View thumbnails horizontally/vertically button to switch the display to horizontal or vertical thumbnails, if desired.
4.1.4 How do I print a page?
To print a scanned or imported page:
In the document pane, select the page to be printed by selecting its thumbnail.
Click the Print Page button. In the Print window, select the printer and configure settings as needed. The page is printed.
4.1.5 How do I view a document or an attachment in an associated application?
To view a non-image document or a non-image attachment in an associated application, you can either:
Right click a document or an attachment and select View document in associated application from the context menu.
Select the document or attachment in the batch pane and click View document in associated application from the document pane's toolbar.
4.1.6 How do I view file information?
Select the document or attachment in the batch pane and click the Show File Information button from the document pane's toolbar to view information about a document or attachment. For image documents or image attachments, select a page in the document pane to display information about the page. The File Information window is displayed listing the following details about the file or page:

4.1.7 How do I find a document?
Perform the following steps to find a document within a batch where a displayed metadata field matches the criteria in the Find field:
You can either select the document in the batch pane and click Find Document from the batch pane's toolbar or right click the document and select Find Document from the context menu. A horizontal toolbar with the Find Document options is displayed in the batch pane above the metadata pane.
Enter a value to search in the Find field. The search is case sensitive.
In the Options drop-down list select one of the following options:
Blank Required Fields: To find blank required fields.
Use wildcards: To specify wildcard characters in the Find field. Use ? as a wildcard to match any single character. Use * as a wildcard to match zero, one, or more characters.
To start the search, either press the ENTER key in the Find field or click Find Next or Find Previous. The search starts at the next metadata field after the current metadata field.
The document on which the search value is found is displayed. If no documents are found, the message “No documents found” is displayed.
You can optionally continue to search by clicking the Find Previous or Find Next icons. Click the Close Find Toolbar icon to close the Find toolbar.
Many scanners have capabilities to improve black/white image quality using features such as noise removal and dynamic thresholding. Review your scanner's documentation to optimize image quality when scanning in black/white.
Follow these steps to increase image quality:
Make sure the scanner is operating optimally as described in its documentation (for example, ensure that the glass is clean).
In the batch pane, click the left side of the Capture Settings/Source button and adjust the available scanner settings (for example, adjust brightness and contrast for scanning). Note that a client profile may restrict you from changing some scanner settings such as DPI resolution and color.
If needed, contact your Capture workspace manager to request that scanner settings such as DPI or brightness and contrast be adjusted for the client profile.
4.2.2 How do I move a page to another document?
To move a page within a document or to another document, drag and drop the page's thumbnail to the new location.
Note: If you drag the only remaining page in a document to another document, the document is automatically removed.

Specify the number of copies to be created in the Number of Copies field. The default value is 1 and the maximum value is 10.
Select the Keep Metadata Values field if you want the duplicated document(s) to have the same document profile and metadata values as the source document.
The duplicated document(s) that are newly created using the selected pages are inserted immediately after the source document in the batch/document list tree.
4.2.4 How do I rotate or flip pages?
