Paperlogix FAQ

Are Text Rules processed automatically when new scans are saved?

Yes, whenever you save new scans Paperlogix will process your text rules. The app will automatically perform text recognition and fire text rules which match the document's content.

Text Rules are also processed whenever you move a document to a folder, or add a tag to a document. If you prefer to process text rules only for documents in a specific folder, or with a specific tag, you can specify these options when creating your text rule.

For more detail, see Paperlogix Text Rules in our documentation.

Is text recognition and rule processing performed locally?

Yes, the app performs all text recognition and rule processing locally on your device. Text recognition is performed using a built-in OCR engine packaged within the app.

Your scans never leave your device unless you choose to share them using the iOS share sheet, or by using an automation upload action.

What is Interactive Mode in the Capture View?

Interactive Mode makes it easy to edit scans each time they are snapped. When interactive mode is turned on, you'll be presented with the Paperlogix editing view each time you snap a scan. This is a great option if you like to edit scans as you capture them.

If you frequently scan multi-page documents, you may prefer to leave this option turned off. This way you can scan all of your pages and edit them later.

Paperlogix always retains your original camera images so feel free to save your scans and edit later. You can always revert back to your original camera images.

How do I rename a document or folder?

To rename a document or folder, tap the item's name either below its thumbnail image, or on the title bar. This will open a details view enabling you to rename the item and view other attributes of the item.

What is the Paperlogix export type?

The Paperlogix export type is a zip file containing your document's original (unedited) image files, along with the metadata representing your edits, such as your color changes and cropping.

You can use this type to save your original documents for archival or backup purposes. These documents can later be imported into Paperlogix on any iOS device.
