1. Selecting the difference filters

Text Inspection detects the following types of differences for live text content: 

  • Case*: whenever the case of a character is different (upper/ lower)
  • Change*: whenever there is a character change relative to the same word on the Master and Sample
  • Deletion*: whenever the Sample is missing a portion of text found in the Master
  • Hyphen*: whenever there is an added or missing hyphen on the same portion of text on the Master and Sample
  • Soft Hyphen: whenever a word gets auto-hyphenated at the end of a line in the Sample
  • Insertion*: whenever the Sample includes an extra portion of text not found in the Master
  • Location*: whenever the location of a portion of text is different between the Master and Sample
  • Space*: whenever there is a new space found in the middle of a word in the Sample
  • Line Break (Space): whenever there's a difference with regard to spacing at the end of a line
  • Bold: whenever the same portion of text on the Master and Sample is different with regard to bolding
  • Color: whenever the color of the font is different
  • Font Type: whenever the font is different
  • Fonts (Mixed): if more than one font-type difference (Italic, Bold, etc.) is found within the same text string, they are grouped into a single difference instead of multiple
  • Italic: whenever the same portion of text on the Master and Sample is different with regard to italics
  • Size: whenever the size of the text is different
  • Sub/Super (subscript/superscript): whenever the script (sub or super) is different relative to the same portion of text on the Master and Sample
  • Underline: whenever there is an added or missing underline on the same portion of text on the Master and Sample
  • Minimum Font: whenever the font size below the minimum size set below
    (An asterisk denotes a filter that is selected by default).

To select a difference filter (to take effect during the inspection), click on the checkbox beside it or click Select All (to check all filters). 

Click Clear All to remove all your selections and Restore Defaults to re-select the filters featuring an asterisk above.

2. Selecting the template mode

Template mode is used to compare a master document that is formatted as a QRD template with a sample document. It compares strings in the Master, separated by section headers, to the matching ones in the Sample and reports the differences.

Text Inspection is installed with default QRD templates for various languages as per the European Medicines Agency. You may select the applicable language or select the Auto QRD function that automatically crosses out the QRD Template section headers in the Master. This eliminates the need to manually cross out the QRD Template section headers before running an inspection. 

3. Selecting the language

Languages lets you select the inspection logic to use based on the language of your files. 

Select the required language (i.e. Asian for documents in Asian languages, Right-to-left for files written in languages that are read from right to left).

4. Enabling image detection

Click Enable Compare under Images to compare embedded images during a text inspection. 

Matched and unmatched images are displayed in the Report panel once the inspection is run. 

The inspection may take noticeably longer with this option enabled.

5. Enabling barcode detection

Click Barcodes in the Options panel and click Enable to detect and grade barcodes in the loaded files. 

The inspection may take noticeably longer with this option enabled. 

For information on navigating through detected and graded barcodes, consult the corresponding articles in the Barcode Inspection section.

6. Enabling Braille detection

Click Braille in the Options panel and click the applicable language to detect and translate Braille regions in the loaded files. 

The inspection may take noticeably longer with this option enabled. 

For information on navigating through detected and translated Braille, consult the corresponding articles in the Braille Inspection section.

7. Inspecting multi-page documents

If multi-page files are loaded, the Master Page(s) and Sample Page(s) fields appear. 

Click the applicable field and select the desired page to select the page(s) to inspect. 

There is no limit to the number of pages that can be inspected, but larger amounts of pages take longer to inspect. 

8. Selecting the reading order

Select Low for files that have good reading order or for revisions. 

Select Medium for repetitive text. 

Select High when inspecting cartons, artwork files, leaflets, or files with many columns and tables. 

9. Enabling Line Processing

Line Processing lets you select how Text Inspection processes underlines and tables, as files with a high number of underlines and tables could take a long time to inspect. 

Select Off and no underline and table detection is performed. 

Select Underlines and only underline detection is performed. 

Select All (default) and both underline and table detection is performed.
