We are ing to use the annotation to “print” a note on the scanned document.


  • PC Client or MFP Client;
  • Document: “Annotation_Document.tif”

How to do:

  1. Create a workflow with the name: “Annotation”
  2. Drag a client capture module (PC client or MFP based on the used client)
  3. Create one Typed question, with variable: MY_NOTE o (You can choose the Question and Button Name by yourself)
  4. Drag the Annotation module, and open configuration:
    1. Load the test document
    2. Select the text type annotation

    3. Create a text area on the bottom of the page and insert the variable: %MY_NOTE%

    4. Save module settings.

  5. Drag the “Windows File System” Connector and configure it with the following settings:
    1. Folder: CutputAnnotation
    2. Filename: Leave the default value, so : Document %YY%‐%MM%-%DD% %HH24%.%NN%.%SS%.%FFF%
  6. As output profile we select a normal PDF, so not a Searchable PDF (edit the default selected output profile and uncheck OCR);
  7. Save your settings

    Now you are able to Connect with the PC Client or the MFP Client and fill in a note at the question. Insert the Annotation Document, and then Store it.

    The Output will be a PDF where at the bottom your Note will be printed.

if i need to make an annotation in another language, and my system has support for this language (Arabic) will the annotation be made in that language?

Hi Tina,

the annotation is in Unicode, so any text in any language can be written.
