Datacap Fastdoc ability to configure the Verify panel to show the Page Type.

1)Description - What would the requested feature do?

On the FastDoc Verify panel, the document type is displayed at the top left corner of the panel.  In the prior, 8.x version of Datacap, the page type was displayed rather than the document type.   For our purposes, we would like to be able to
configure this to display either the document type or the page type.   We only have one generic Document type called Document but the document can have a number of different page types associated to it.   The page type is what we really want to see
as it determines what fields are displayed and the validation rules.

Below is how the Verify pane looked in FastDoc 8.1

Below is how the Verify panel looks in FastDoc 9.1.9

2)Use Case - Describe the business problem being solved in the context of a customer process.:

When documents are scanned into Datacap, they typically have a cover page that indicates what page type to use.   The users would like to be able to see that the correct page type was identified by Datacap and that the correct fields are shown.
Since it only displays the document type, they have to click on the Document Type for it to display the possible page types with the selected page type highlighted.

3)What is current behavior?

Currently it is displaying the Document Type.

4)What is expected behavior?

We would like the ability to confiture the Verify panel to show the Page Type.
