Folded Forms Splitter

Scan folded forms and split the resulting long images in individual pages

Folded FormFolded forms typically consist of 4, 6 or even more pages. When you unfold such form, you get a long document with a length equal to several letter sized or A4-sized pages. The sequence of the pages on the form is often awkward.

The CaptureBites™ Folded Forms Splitter splits the long images in individual pages, puts them in the right sequence and optionally deletes any blank segments.  You can then send the split images in standard PDF or TIFF format to a system of choice such as a File Server, SharePoint, DocuShare, Alfresco, ViewBites™ etc.

Folded forms come in different types

The Folded Form Splitter can deal with most cases.

Here are a few popular folding types.

Each of these folding types have their unique page sequence and all can be handled with this CaptureBites connector.

These are the settings of the folded form splitter:

Notice the “Selection” section in the setup where you can define which images to split based on page number, size or resolution or a combination of any of these criteria.  Any images that do not correspond to these criteria are left untouched.

Whenever you see the info icon  next to a field or option, just hover over it to get some tips.  For example this is the tip next to the Select Images field:

The Rotate tab is specific to Kofax Express. Sometimes you want to tag images in Kofax Express that should not be split. Simply rotate the images that you don’t want to split 90 degrees. After rotation the dimensions do not match the split criteria anymore, and the Folded Form Splitter will leave these images untouched. The rotate tab allows the images to be rotated back to normal during export.

In the Export tab, select the desired export connector after splitting and configure it through the setup button. Notice that you can select the Folded Form Splitter again in case you have another form type with a different number of pages that you also want to split.
