I bought a Seagate 1 T external hard drive last year that came with a Memeo program that was constantly backing up the C:\ Drive on my computer running XP. Last November my computer crashed and when I tried to install my current version of PaperPort 7 on the new computer running Windows 7, it wouldn't install. Wanting desperately to retrieve my family photos from the hard drive I purchased Paper 12 last week thinking it may be old enough to be compatible with the PaperPort 7 images. I have installed the PaperPort 12 on my computer but can't figure out how to get these images from the external hard drive to the newer PaperPort on my computer. Can anyone help with this?
I'm using Paperport 11. My PC was recently restored from a harddrive crash and I reloaded all my files, but had to re-install the software. here's the issue:
I used to scan documents from my xerox copier to my computer and upon doing so it would automatically open Paperport and the .pdf file would appear in a list (with all the previously scanned files) in the Samples folder (which I always found to be odd). However when scanning .jpegs, they would not auto-pop open the software and they would go to a different folder called c:\scans. I then had to manually go to the folder to retrieve them.
Now, when I scan .pdfs they go into the c:\scans and it doesn't auto-open Paperport anymore. I tried going to the folder manager in Paperport and adding c:\scans, but that doesn't help.
What can I do to get Paperport to auto-open when I scan a file to my computer?
Thanks for you help!!
After the document is scanned and saved as a PDF, I need to save a copy of the document as a JPEG as well, and right click to save as, select JPEG, and save it to a new location. Once that is completed, the image is mirrored. How do I make it so this doesn't happen? We just installed PP on a Win 7 PRO machine after having it on a Vista machine that did this initially as well, but I do not remember the fix.
I just upgraded to PaperPort 14 Pro, and I've spend hours trying to "edit/change" information on existing forms, and can't figure out how to do it. I need simple instructions and have a deadline to get the forms changed. The Help section was not easily understood by this seasoned user. If anyone can send a simple procedure on how to do it, I would appreciate it so much.
I'm using paperport 14. When I scan doc's they automatically saved in searchable pdf. From time to time pp saves the file without any reason to a read-only pdf (little icon bottom left... As a result I cannot change the filename. Does anyone have the same problem ? What should I do ? Thanks !
PP created pdf is not displaying correctly in Foxit bookmarks view after PP shuffle/delete, unless I do a 'Save as' which then gives a 'copy of ' and needs a delete of the original and a rename. The Foxit page-counter footer shows and works ok but the bookmarks stay at the original (pre shuffle/delete) numbers but with a padding of random page duplicates occupying the places.
I am using Windows 7 Professional (64-bit) with PaperPort 14 Professional.
I have scanned a document containing 37 pages and am now tying to unstack it. The .pdf created by the scanning process is about 9.7Mb.
When I try to unstack the document, PaperPort is creating files for the first couple of pages and seems to lose the rest. (It also loses the original file which caused much grief until I started to make a copy before unstacking!
Has any experienced this loss of pages when unstacking and is there any answer that would prevent it?
I'm looking for a better pdf viewer/page shuffler. I need something like the the current Paperport desktop to do unstacking/stacking moves but I need to be able to see the individual pages full-ish size, if only the top, so I can read the enough of content to identify it's the correct page in the correct order. The constant opening/closing of the file viewer is too slow and breaks the workflow. I tried page shuffling/deleting in the viewer but it was slow, variable and prone to freeze vs the same in Paperport desktop. If it's a limitation of the pdf file system can a larger thumbnail of the top quarter of the page selected on the Paperport desktop be made visible in a separate window so it can be ID'd. ATM working with the thumbnails only for reshuffling is sheer guesswork.
We have installed Paperport 14. We are able to scan but have found that documents scanned using one colour format (such as B&W) end up appearing in the right hand side preview pane in a long format (properties show 100cm).
Whereas, scanning using another colour format (such as Greyscale), the documents appear fine, looking more like a preview of an A4 sheet.
We have explored the settings and see no difference between the colour format settings.
I have attached a screenshot so you can see what I mean. The first 2 documents appear fine, the last 3 documents have been formatted into the elongated appearance?
Installed pp14 pro yesterday on win 7 with good pc well maintained by professionals and up to date with microsoft
after my first scan i went to 'recent scans' and right clicked on the document to change file name using 'save as'
each time system hangs, even with a freshly restarted pc and pp14 the only application running
I have to go to task manager to close the software each time
Will have to uninstall unless someone can solve this
