Question

When I used A-PDF Barcode Split Service to split scanned files, it failed to recognize the file, why is that?

Solution

This might be because there is not barcode page or blank page in you scanned PDF files, and

A-PDF Barcode Split Service (free download here) can't recognize files without barcode page or

blank page. To solve this problem, you need to adjust some settings to enable your scanned files to be recognized.

1. While selecting splitting basis (blank page or barcode page), click "Setting" button following;

2. If you choose "Blank", you will see the below window, follow the instructions below:

(3) Look out at the test result and see if it is recognized. 3. If you choose "Barcode", the Barcode Page Params Window will pop up:
