Image-based automation settings
Image-based automation settings are to specify the behavior of Ranorex in detecting and identifying UI-elements in an image-based way. The settings can either be made generally (by means of the settings dialog) or on an action-based way (by means of the action properties).
In this chapter
Image-based settings dialog
Similarity threshold (0.0-1.0): Specifies the minimum similarity (0.0-1.0), that the image region to search for needs to have in common with the image in order to be considered a match
Preprocessing steps: Defines preprocessing steps that can be performed on an image before search. Available options are ‘Downsize’, ‘Edges’, ‘EdgesSobel’, ‘Grayscale’ and ‘Threshold’
The similarity threshold and the preprocessing steps are part of the image-based properties which are introduced and explained in detail in > Ranorex Studio advanced > Image-based automation > ⇢ Image-based properties.
Image-based properties are available on an action-based access by selecting an action and pressing the F4 key. Remember that image-based properties only affect the corresponding action and not the image-based behavior of Ranorex generally.

You find the same settings and configurations as in the image-based settings dialog.
