When reviewing a document, instead of having to view search hits on the text display, you now see highlighted search hits directly in the near-native PDF. Behind the scenes, we’ve improved OCR processing of documents to make this feature even more robust.
How it works
Complete a search in DISCO and then navigate to the document viewer. In the near-native document, you will see your search hits highlighted in yellow by default, but you can also customize the highlight color. Any global term highlights in your database will also appear in the near-native PDF.
Say you run a search in the Enron database for Ken Lay. You have customized search hits to highlight in pink. You’ve also set up a global term highlight for the word Enron to appear in blue. Now, when you view a resulting document, you will see the words Ken Lay highlighted in pink, and you will see the word Enron, if present, highlighted in blue.
To customize the color of your search term hits and/or to setup term highlighting, in the main menu, click Term Highlights.
On the Term Highlights page you can do two things. First, use the select bar to customize the color of your search term hits. You may choose from yellow, green, blue, red, or orange.
Second, you can create and customize global term highlights. These automatically highlight a term when in the document viewer, regardless if the term was a search hit or not. To add a new term, click Add Another and then enter the new term. To highlight multiple terms with the same color, enter the terms to be highlighted, separated by semicolons, choose the term highlight color from the dropdown, and then click Save.
Improving search highlighting allows for you to easily skim a document and see relevant terms. These improvements are made possible by additional improvements made behind the scenes with OCR processing of data during ingestion.
This feature improvement is available in new databases created on or after June 10, 2015.
