[Athen] OmniPage Batch Manager question

We used to have workflow freezes despite the use of a high-powered quad processor CAD-capable workstation or even with processing only 1 chapter at a time.
We got tired of the problems & switched to ABBYY FineReader in late 2006.

Subject: [Athen] OmniPage Batch Manager question

Hello all,

I am working with the Batch Manager for OmniPage Pro 17 in an attempt to
automate some processes. I have set up "input" and "output" folders as
well as specified a job workflow (i.e., watch the input folder, OCR
file, process, save the file, etc.).

The job workflow is able to load the file from the "input" folder and
perform OCR and process any corrections. However, when I get to the
final step of the process to saving the exported file, the automated job
workflow process seems to freeze. The only way I get the completed
files to appear in the "output" folder is to manually stop the specific
job workflow OR add a new file to the "input" folder to start the job
workflow process again.

I know I am probably missing something simple, but have been through the
interface several times and cannot figure out why the job workflow seems
to freeze at the "Save" step.

Take care,
