A file is in the global inbox. I right-click it, and choose “OCR/to searchable PDF”. Whilst OCR is in progress, I open the information on the file by pressing Shift+CMD+i. OCR probably finishes whilst I am still in the process of entering data in the various fields, which includes adding a name and changing the date of creation. I’m unsure whether I closed the info-window or whether it closed itself - there is now no copy of the file in the global inbox, a single copy of the original file in trash (not OCR’d, but with the new file name and date of creation). The file in trash has no tags, so probably I was in the process of tagging at the moment the file was moved. I may have attempted to close the info-window by pressing ESC at the moment the file was moved.
In the preferences, DT3 is set to move files to trash following OCR.
I have tried but currently failed to replicate this behaviour. When I tried to perform the same measures on a further file, the OCR’d version of the file remained in the global inbox whilst the original was moved to trash. I will report any further incidences, but the occurrence seems to be down to bad timing.
(obviously I have retrieved the file from trash, so don’t need help for the problem as such)
