Using partial Inspection/Selection tools helps users define specific portions of a loaded file to be verified in Text Inspection

Text Inspection File

1. Overprint/Spot Layers

Clicking the Overprint icon for Master or Sample panel displays a simulation of how blending and overprinting appear in the color-separated output, this however won't be applied during the inspection. Toggling Overprint option also re-loads the files.

The default is toggled ON.

Clicking the Spot Layers icon toggles on the Side panel, where users can (un)check different spot layers on the loaded Master or Sample to include/exclude in the inspection.

2. Show Inspectable Text

To verify what text can be inspected in the Master or Sample file, click Show Inspectable Text. The inspectable text in the document gets underlined.

3. Crop

To crop the area for verification during an inspection, click Crop icon, and drag the cursor in either the Master or Sample panel. 

The selected area is surrounded by a red box, which can either be cleared by clicking on the border and selecting Delete or resized by clicking and dragging to adjust its borders. 

Note: You cannot apply multiple crops on the same page, but you can apply one crop per page of multi-page documentation. 

3.1. Auto Crop (Trim Box)

When a PDF file is uploaded, Text Inspection checks to see if a PDF trim box exists. If one is found, Text Inspection automatically draws a crop box around the trim area and only the region in the crop box is inspected hereafter. 

In case, you try to add your own crop box without removing the auto-generated one, Text Inspection displays the message:

"Please remove the crop box on the document before proceeding.

To remove the auto-generated crop box, click Clear All on the toolbar or click on its border and select Delete.

4. Cross out Text

Cross out Text let you cross out text that is to be excluded during the inspection.

Select Cross out Text on the toolbar and then click and drag the cursor to select the desired text. The text is crossed out in red

To undo selection, click the underlined text and select Delete in the menu.

5. Underline Text

Underline Text let you select text to be included during the inspection. 

Select Underline Text on the toolbar and then click and drag the cursor to select the desired text. The text is underlined in green

To undo selection, click the underlined text and select Delete in the menu.

6. Create Zone

Create Zone let you select one or more zones (or regions) in your document to be inspected. These zones are compared against each other and only the text included inside the zones will be checked during any inspection. 

Zones are numbered sequentially and, when you run an inspection, Text Inspection enlists the differences by zone numbers. This provides you with an easy way to customize the order in which differences are to be reported.

To create a zone, click Create Zone on the Master Preview toolbar. Drag the cursor to select the region in the Master to be inspected. Search Text window opens displaying all occurrences of matching text lines inside the Sample.

Select the desired line to go to any specific zone inside the Sample or click at the beginning of that zone. Drag the cursor to select the matching zone in the Sample to be inspected. 

To delete a zone, click on a zoned region then select Delete in the menu that appears without renumbering the zones. 

Note: Only inspectable text can be selected in a zone. Embedded images, barcodes, and Braille regions cannot be included.

7. Add to the Last Zone

Add to Last Zone let you add an inspectable region to the zone, last created. This feature comes in handy when the text is split over two pages. 

After a zone has already been created, click Add to the Last Zone on the Master Preview toolbar and drag the cursor to select the region to be added. The Search Text window opens displaying all occurrences of matching text inside the Sample.

Select the desired line to go to any specific zone inside the Sample or click at the beginning of that zone. Alternatively, position the cursor at the beginning of the Sample text and drag the cursor to select the region.  

8. Create Table Zone

Create Table Zone feature is used for table inspection logic to run during a full inspection. 

Text Inspection first inspects the entire document, afterward inspects any specified rows or columns in the table zone(s). 

To create a table zone, click Create Table Zone on the Master Preview toolbar. 

For column selection, drag the cursor to select a column in the Master and then select the corresponding column in the Sample. Repeat this step for each column that you want to include in the inspection. 

For row selection, select a row in the Master and then select the corresponding row in the Sample. Repeat this step for each row that you want to include in the inspection.

Table zoning is recommended for inspection of tables and charts because they are often characterized by different reading order or text flow. Table zoning let you select the matching rows and columns to zone and inspect.
