Create test documents

There are two ways to create test documents:

  • By directly creating or putting text files in the test folder
  • By "preparing" original documents

If you project doesn't require input document pre-processing, you can create test documents in the test folder or copy existing files there.
Please refer to the basic procedures for managing files and folders.


You can keep your test documents organized in sub-folders.

Test documents must be UTF-8 encoded plain text files with .txt extension. If you're unsure about character encoding, you can use the Ensure Charset UTF-8 command.

If, instead, you project deals with documents that need to be pre-processed before being analyzed, you can emulate run-time pre-processing by preparing original documents. In that case, test documents will be created and updated automatically inside the test folder by the preparation procedure.
