Improvements in Version 1.8.1

The following changes are part of PDF-Mapper version 1.8.1:

  • Added module for preprocessing, which allows for preprocessing steps like text grouping, page filter or text filter.
  • The validation view shows a symbol with the validation result for the entire document, so there is no need to scroll to check the result in larger documents:
    • no validation errors: green check icon
    • with validation errors: red warning icon
  • Fix for validation rule from \d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2} to ^\d{4}-\d{2}-\d{2}$.
