Dedoose 7 is here and we are thrilled to introduce some GREAT new features and other HUGE improvements. First up, NATIVE IMAGE AND PDF excerpting and coding. Let’s take a look… In the past, Dedoose had some OCR technology that would work to convert PDFs to inline documents for excerpting and tagging. Given OCR limitations, this approach brought with it some less than desirable issues. Tables or images in a PDF would be brought in as images, but the content of the image could not be excerpted or tagged. Further, the loss of formatting was also problematic for some files.
Now, however, Dedoose 7 is here and it’s a real game changer. After a tremendous amount of work, our awesome Tech Team has now added image based PDF support and image importing, excerpting, and coding capabilities. To bring you the best of both worlds, you now have the option to importing PDFs as native image-based media or make use of the OCR technology to import the file as a document-based media. Enough chat; let’s get to importing some PDFs as images!

Previous to Dedoose 7, you could only paste images into documents to import to Dedoose, so you could see them but not excerpt the image itself. Well, now the sky’s the limit. After a tremendous amount of work, our awesome Tech Team has now added native image importing, excerpting, and coding. Let’s take a walk through importing and coding an image:
Now that your images are in, let’s get to coding!

Beyond the wonderful new PDF and image handling, we’ve made some major upgrades to Dedoose’s Application Server Infrastructure to increase throughput i.e. it can do more at once… a LOT MORE. What does this mean for you? Much snappier response times, fewer if any application hangs, far fewer of the ‘errors’ that can pop up, and overall Dedoose to handle much more user demand than ever before.
