Disable Scan Import Dialog Box

I feel like I’m missing something obvious here, but is there a way to disable the dialog box that pops up after OCR finishes – the one that prompts for Title, Author, Tags, etc? It’s really annoying if I’m scanning a bunch of documents to be asked for this information every minute. I generally rename and tag imports from the Inbox using Classify to help identify them, so I’d rather the scans just automatically come in to the Inbox with the default name for later processing.

I feel the same way. :slight_smile:

See Preferences > OCR - Searchable PDF and UNCHECK ‘Set attributes’.

That lets the queue of scanned documents run through OCR processing without coming to a screeching halt, waiting for the user to enter information. I prefer renaming PDFs inside the DT Pro Office database, and never bother with other document attributes.

Thanks, I knew it was something obvious. I think I missed this option because I was confused by the “Searchable PDF:” heading next to it. Also, “Attributes” didn’t come to mind as what one might call this dialog box, although in hindsight it makes sense.
