Re: Assistance offered to create user help

Did anything ever happen with these guides? I too would be interested - have the book but more education is never a bad thing.

Re: QR / Barcode generation for Physical document management

Hi Michael, I was just wondering if there was any progress with the zonal ocr legal issues, and if not is there any way that the community can help out. Is there anything more specific you can say? I work in the copyright/intellectual property sphere so I am well aware of how problematic things can ...

Re: Need better documentation

Personally I disagree - the documentation does do what it needs to do, the issue with Mayan is there is a steep learning curve, but the core software is very powerful and well thought out, I also look forward to the new features that are on the road map as some are essential to the main deployment I...

QR / Barcode generation for Physical document management

Is there any chance of a Qr / Barcode generation system that can be incorporated into Mayan for the purpose of physical document management. we can do this internally ourselves, but it may make sense for an integrated tool. e.g not all documents or use cases for documents involve the destruction of ...

Re: Is there a way to improve OCR by serving a "pre processed" 1 bit image to Tesseract from the converter

Hmm so reading further about tesseract etc I realise that the OCR engine will be working on a 1 bit image, so now my question has become how can we address Tesseract / pillow to change the thresholding settings for OCR - possibly per document or by a "profile" for a document / document typ...

Re: Mayan EDMS book - updates?

I rather buy it now as a donate to the team, and hope they spends valuable time to fix issues and develope new features, than update the book. And when new book version comes out, I don't mind to spend a bit more for them if they don't offer discount and new book for old buyer. Just my 2 cents. yes...

Is there a way to improve OCR by serving a "pre processed" 1 bit image to Tesseract from the converter

I have added this here rather than in Feature requests because this may already be possible using Converter / OCR back end arguments, though I'm just no sure. Tesseract works really well for some modern documents, however in my use case I have many files going back to the 1960's Some of these are Ve...

Re: create new "document bundle" from existing document files

Diving a little deeper - unless I am mistaken this feature is not currently in Mayan - Essentially the use case would be "create new bundle" and then use Mayan as its source rather than a web upload / staging / watch folders etc , this would then need the ability to append and the ability ...

Re: New relase v4.0 and live stream suggestion.

I have to say that I disagree with most of this, but I understand the sentiment. MAYAN seems incredibly powerful, but the barrier to entry is relatively high - a simple video tour of new features is relatively common in a lot of software, the live stream was done there just doesn't appear to be a re...
