Most of the time taken is loading the PDF or Word document from the server where it resides, or uploading the document from your computer. If you are using the Scholarcy Web Library, and are uploading a large document with a slow internet connection, it may take a minute or two before the summary card appears in your library.
Once it has the PDF, Scholarcy takes around 5-20 seconds to turn the PDF into data. However, some PDFs that live on a slow server, or contain many images, may take more time to process. If you don’t require figure extraction:
- If using the Chrome Extension, right-click on the Scholarcy icon in the Chrome toolbar (or via chrome://extensions/, choose Options, and uncheck ‘Extract figures’.
- If using the Library app, choose Settings and uncheck ‘Extract figures’
It’s also possible that the user interface hasn’t automatically refreshed, so you can reload the page and the summary card should then appear in your library.
