Why doesn't ABBYY predict certain words when creating fields in document editor?

ABBYY automatically suggests a name when creating fields but it won't suggest a name if the name is in a certain set of words (Ex: Male, Female, Yes, No, Other, I, 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9)

'Get name from image' can be used to name fields in this set, so it shouldn't be a problem automatically suggesting these words as field names

What can I do to have ABBYY use these words when automatically naming fields?

Most likely in your case the program cannot pick up static text automatically as field label on the form because the text position is somewhat ambiguous for that. Otherwise 'Get name from image' should work this way.

I figured out the reason that certain words were not suggested in document definition editor:

If the text associated with the field region is less than four characters long, the document definition editor will not suggest a name for the field upon creation.

However, the field name can be suggested by using 'get name from image' and selecting the characters.
