Assigning penalty in FlexiLayoutstudio depending on the distance to the next word

in the advanced post-search relations of the fields in the SearchElement tree I can assign a penalty depending on the value of X via the function FuzzyQuality: X, {F1,F2,F3,F4}. For instance I can assign a penalty of a fifty-thousandth for each dot distance from the left side of the actual field to the right side of another field via the code:

if not kwShipToParty.IsNull then
   FuzzyQuality: Rect.Right - kwShipToParty.Rect.Left, {-10000, 0, 0, 50000}*dt;

Is there a possibility to use the FuzzyQuality function in order to penalize words that are surrounded immediately by characters? For instance this would help to find a zip code of 5 digits without finding the 5 digits in the IBAN or in a telephone number. Can someone help me with this question?

PS: The activation of "WholeWordMode: true;" doesn't help since I search the zip code with a regular expression that allows for country code before the 5 digits (for instance "SK-"[0-9]{5}|...) and with the activation of "WholeWordMode: true;" the regular expression doesn't work anymore.

To find ZiP code we recommend to find all long digital strings in the searching area and exclude them from capturing

Hello Ekaterina,

thank you for your reply. My problem is more general. I want to make sure that a word is found "alone" and not inside of another word. The ZIP code was just an example. I had several situations, where some special text/characters was found inside other text/characters. And as descriped in my question above, there are a lot of situations, where the activation of "WholeWordMode: true;" doesn't help. I was wondering if it would be possible to work with White Gaps on such a small space. But I thought that the best solution would be to penalize the word if it was found inside another word. I just have no idea how to do it. :-)

Kind regards
