EasyConverter Quick Start tutorial
(Applies to: EasyConverter)
Chapter 1: Overview
This chapter contains a number of step-by-step tutorials to help get you up and running quickly with Dolphin EasyConverter. The tutorials will introduce you to the user interface and the conversion process.
To accompany this some sample documentation has been provided. These documents can be found in the Samples folder, located in the installation folder of Dolphin EasyConverter.
The tutorials will guide you through the conversion process using Dolphin EasyConverter's default settings.
In practice, you will want to adjust the available settings to meet your requirements. The Dolphin EasyConverter settings are reviewed in a later chapter.
Dolphin EasyConverter provides the tools to convert a standard document into an alternative format. There is three stages to this process.
- Input stage.
Select the source document to be converted. Input can either be from an existing supported file format or from a printed document. Dolphin EasyScan is used to initially scan and review printed material.
- Intermediate stage.
The source document is converted into an intermediate Microsoft Word document and then processed by the heading detector. The intermediate document can be reviewed and edited or the conversion process can continue on to the output stage. This is dependent on the selection of Auto Edit.
- Output stage.
Choose the output format the intermediate document is to be converted too. Each output format has a number of different media options available that are directly related to the format itself.
You can select to run the entire process at once or just perform a partial conversion. A partial conversion means no output format is selected, with the source document only being converted to the intermediate stage. Both a full and partial conversion can be saved as a Dolphin EasyConverter project.
Saving the conversion as a Dolphin EasyConverter project means the conversion of the source document does not have to be repeated. This makes it quicker to produce alternative formats for the source document in the future.
