May I just ask if there is a tutorial for other language detection?

I created a FlexiLayout file, and when I do a "Match" , it is able to detect both the English and Chinese fields that I was mapping.

Then I proceeded to create a project, create a document definition and load the FlexiLayout, it wasnt able to correctly recognise.

Attaching some screenshots -> FlexiLayout Studio, Document Definition, Web Verification

Any ideas?

In case there are newbies out there. I found my error :)


After saving my FlexiLayout Studio (I clicked SAVE button), I did not export it as AFL (FlexiLayout description).

Thus the AFL file I kept loading on my DD was the old one ! Yikes!


After exporting (File > Export...) , I re-loaded the updated AFL file (now I checked the file details to make sure, like datetime modified) and voila! Problem solved.


Hope this helps other newbies out there :)
