The creation of a text group is commenced by pressing thebutton. After pressing the button, it is first necessary to select a rectangular area marking the location where the copied text will be recorded. After defining the area, a dialog is displayed prompting you to enter several parameters:
The following must be defined:
Name - group name
Length - maximum length of the entered text; place will be reserved in the output of results equaling that length of the text (if the entered text is shorter, it will be supplemented by spaces)
Once defined, the text group is marked in the template with a green rectangle

During evaluation, the user is shown the text area of each form in order for him/her to copy the filled text. If the text need not be filled, it is possible to activate empty area detection using the Empty Area Detection option and automatically detect if there are any entries in the defined area.
