Scribe Extracting Text from PDf inserts space inside words

Recommended Posts

I am using Scribe to extract text from a pdf. The pdf has a filesize of 705542 so it is fairly large. The Scribe result is fairly good but it has a serious problem: a space is inserted into words; see example of words like NE W YORK AND NEW JERSEY, airp orts, Inte rnational, Internat ional

Why does Scribe do this? Is there a way to fix it? (It is close to a dealbreaker if you can extract text but then not use the text that's extracted)

Many thanks in advance for your replies, as I certainly hope I can use Scribe since I've used 360Works products for years and Textractor before Scribe.

Hi Carole,

What version of Scribe are you using? Can you download and install this build and see if you get the same results? If you do, please send an email to support@360works.com with a description of the problem and steps to reproduce the issue. Also, please provide a pdf that you seeing this behavior with.

      I am investigating moving my database to web direct. To do so I need to get scribe working on fmphost.
      I have added a script step to register the plugin - which works fine in self hosted or fmphosted but I still get an error telling me that I need to install the plugin when I try to run it in webdirect.
       
      I have be speaking with fmphost who reported "It turns out the Scribe plugin also needed to be enabled in the FileMaker Server Admin Console. We have enabled the plugin, so it should be working now.".
      I am wondering if my license wont work with web direct. My license is described as "360Works Scribe 2.15 / Upgrade from Single User License to Scribe Workgroup License (Upgrade)".
      Any ideas?

      Anyone had any luck getting Scribe to substitute text within a Text Box in a word document?

      is it possible to append text or images to the end of a loaded doc. (not just another document)-
       
      i.e. something like--
       
      $result=ScribeDocAppend ("new stuff")
       
      it seems the function only looks to append other files, not text
      what i need is to be able to add custom text to the end of some documents-
       
      not sure how to do this.
       
      thanks!

      Hello, there,
      I'm trying to get the Scribe plugin running on my Filemaker Server 17.
      But I always get the error message:
      Error 474 Plugin could not be loaded: 360Works_Scribe.fmx64
      and
      Error 701 The FileMaker Script Engine process was terminated abnormally.
      I tried Scribe 3.08 and Beta Scribe-3.08009 but both don't work.
      The server runs on a Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard
      JRE 1.8.0_171 (32 & 64 bit) & JRE 1.8.0_171 (32 bit) is installed.
      The permissions are enabled to full access for "Everyone".
       
      Server restart, reassign permissions and restart services did not help.
      Does anyone have any idea why? I can send other log files if needed.
      Thank you and greetings
      Christian
