scan and seperate
« on: June 05, 2012, 04:22:41 AM »
hello!

I want to load a pack of papers to a sheetfed scanner, but each document must be seperated

how can I do this?

is there a way to make it automatic, instead of me spliting manually the scans?

I saw some apps that require to place pages with barcodes between the documents, but are too much expensive

any cheaper or free solution, or a program I already own (Abbyy, etc) or any totally alternative solution?

thanks!

ScreenShotCaptor does have a nice Scanner option, you just have to enable it from preferences, and probably set some options to your likings.

FlashJet Scan might let you do this, (you may have to click the scan button each time) - it's free and will scan to a PDF, (and optionally organise them into folders).

You need .NET 3.5.

thinking outside the box, if you are saying you have a tool that will scan a bunch of pages using your automatic document feeder that you are happy with, and that the only problem is it combines them all into one pdf..

then just let it do that, and use a simple tool to take a pdf file and extract each page to a separate pdf file -- surely they exist.

It seems to me that some of these document/PDF organisers *should* be able to do this. You know the type of app aimed at a paperless office, e.g. PaperPort. Unfortunately I dont have any experience with any of them myself.

(I presume you've looked at your scanner driver options/settings.)

the problem is that a file may contain many pages, so 1 page = 1 pdf is not always correct

browsing pages and splitting them to seperate multipage files is also less convenient than just placing papers with barcode between the documents when feeding them to the scanner
