1-afr-project Folder

Container for OCR-Project files for ABBYY FineReader.

AFR has a proprietary compressed-file folder structure for its OCR-Projects, which we use to organize each 150- to 250-page section. The special data files in the ocr-project retain the text boxes and language settings and can be used to output text in multiple formats. The folder name includes the edition and section name, such as eb09-r01.

DANGER: ocr-project folders contain hidden files by default that are essential to their retention of text boxes, etc. When creating an ocr-project, change the attribute value on the three hidden files to unhidden to ensure that they are included whenever the folder is copied.
