Annotation appears on Front Side images only


Question / Problem: 

When scanning in duplex with Annotation enabled, the string is only annotated on the Front Side images. 

Answer / Solution: 

Digital Annotation of a string on the scanned image was originally intended to mimic physical endorsing, which typically occurs on only one side of a physical page.  However, in Kofax VRS 5.2 Fix Pack 1 and higher, the ability to digitally annotate both front-side and back-side images was added. 

To enable Annotation on both the front-side and back-side images:

1.  Upgrade to VRS or higher.

2.  Close all applications and services that use VRS / ImageControls.


3.  Navigate to C:\ProgramData\Kofax\Vrs\


4.  Open KofaxReg.xml in a text editor such as Notepad


5. Add the following line under HKEY_CURRENT_USER | SOFTWARE | KOFAX | CONDOR | V1.0 | SETTINGS:
<ANNOTATIONBOTHSIDES Value="1" Type="integer" />


                        <ANNOTATIONBOTHSIDES Value="1" Type="integer" />


3.  Save the changes to KofaxReg.xml
