When Abbyy 7 was done processing pages it was done and one could create a pdf right away. Abbyy 12 tells the user that its done, but its really not done. On a 5000 page document for instance, it will say 5000 out 5000 pages recognized and then sit there a good 5 minutes or more(I'm not exaggerating) in a frozen state until an info window finally comes up titled "Adding the Image to the Document", saying
5000 of 5000 pages recognized
Then a log of any pages which may have had recognition problems or not
My question is why the change in methodology? It's very annoying to have a program frozen for that long with no indication of whether it's truly frozen for good or not. it really is a stress creator. Please someone give me a good reason why this version of Abbyy was designed to interface with the user in this manner? I have already tested it in 3 different computers so it's not the hardware. The application says it has the latest update. It just seems like it was designed to work this way on purpose. I have searched the forum and I can't believe I'm the first to point this problem out.
On a good note, I love the way the application can use all the core threads to process multiple pages simultaneously and the way it's visualized. The OCR output is still outstanding.
