Train the layout classifier

To ensure that your classification settings work successfully in production, train the settings against a set of documents. Use representative documents that have the same layout, graphical elements, and geometric structure as those you want to process.

Important After changing the properties of your classifiers, or after adding or deleting documents from your training set, you must retrain your project.

You can train your project for layout classification by following these steps:

  1. In the main Project Builder window, hide or close any windows that block the Ribbon.
  2. Open the Project Tree window if it is not already open.
  3. Expand the Project Tree and select the class.
  4. Optionally, view the class contents if they are not already displayed.

    The hidden class contents are displayed.

  5. Ensure that layout classification training is enabled for the selected class.

    If this option is cleared, this class is not trained for layout classification, even if you add training documents.

  6. Open the Documents window if it is not already open.
  7. Optionally, add additional training documents to a subset in the Classification Set.
  8. On the Process tab, in the Train group, click Separation & Classification.

    The documents in your Classification Set are trained and you may now test your classification settings.

  9. Save the changes to your project.
