Document properties

A document property is data, such as a customer name or postal code, extracted from a specific location on a page within a document. Using document properties, you can add markup based on variable information. For example, you can add a different image to documents sent to different states or provinces.

RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat has an advanced address block parsing tool to help you extract city, state or province, postal code, and other document properties from complex, variable line addresses. If you need to reprint documents in a job, you can use RICOH ProcessDirector to search for document property values to find the specific documents you need to reprint.

You can define your own document property or select a RICOH ProcessDirector document property from a drop-down list. You can use RICOH ProcessDirector document properties with functions provided by RICOH ProcessDirector document processing features.

Note: When you use RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat to define document properties, you select from a list of your RICOH ProcessDirector document properties. After you install RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat or any time that you change RICOH ProcessDirector document properties, you need to load the document properties into RICOH ProcessDirector Plug-in for Adobe Acrobat. For more information, see RICOH ProcessDirector: Installing Document Processing Features.

Click RicohView Document Property Values to verify that document property values are extracted correctly.

If you want to use document property values with an external program, you can save the values to a tab-delimited text file.
