Important In order for Kofax ReadSoft Invoices to be able to interpret a character that appears on an invoice, the character must be defined for the character set being used. The character set that Kofax ReadSoft Invoices uses when interpreting invoices is specified in the Character set settings in the Invoice profile dialog.

The main initialization files (INI files) that are installed with Kofax ReadSoft Invoices are in Unicode format instead of ANSI. Plug-ins used with Kofax ReadSoft Invoices must take this into account if they read those INI files.
