[Athen] OmniPage Efficiency When Reordering Zones

Hi all,

My department is considering incorporating OmniPage into our workflow for making alt format materials. Right now, we use Abbyy. When handling multi-page documents where paragraphs continue from a previous page, we like to finish that paragraph, then recognize the page number, and then we continue with the main text. This way the middle of sentences isn't interrupted and the page number is still announced in the text.

With Abbyy, we just draw the boxes in that order and it remembers the order and uses it.

But I'm running into an issue with OmniPage where, even if I manually draw boxes in the order that I want, it will group them all together during recognition and thus save the page top to bottom. I can get around this by right-clicking on the recognized page, selecting ungroup, and then manually defining the zone order, but that takes a while to do for every page. Is there any way around this that anyone uses?
