    Automating Paperport, or any other Nuance OCR, via .bat

    I am at a hospital research facility and we are interested in the OCRs, we tested and did trial on and liked PaperPort the best. However we need it to be operable via .bat file, ultimately automating it. Is this possible? We want to automate the OCR on png image files, then export them at text (.txt) files. If this will not work on PaperPort, can it be done with PowerPDF Advanced or OmniPage?

    This will greatly influence our choice of OCR software usage and purchase.

    Inline SET Tools?1
    Topic posted June 12, 2015 by Jason Cipriani, tagged How To, Installation and Configuration Topics 
    Inline SET Tools?

    I had an old version of ScanSoft PaperPort that came with my other scanner. Within this, double-clicking a PDF would open a nice window with all the SET tools (rotate, auto-straighten, crop, annotate, etc) right in the application. Changes could be applied, saved, then smoothly updated back in the thumbnail view. I was also able to easily combine multiple PDFs into one, rearrange pages, etc. Very useful when scanning receipts and such.

    I just bought a new scanner and it came with Nuance PaperPort 12 SE. Now, when I double-click a PDF, it opens it in some other Nuance PDF Viewer application, which I can't really seem to find the tools in, and the workflow is much more cumbersome.

    I noticed, however, that the SET tools are still available in the context menu when right clicking a thumbnail in PaperPort, so they're still available, it's just that the in-app editor has been replaced by the PDF Viewer. I also see a subset of the tools in the Items ribbon, but it operates on tiny thumbnails, I can't find any fullscreen-ish per-page view like the old editor.

    So my question is: Does the in-app SET editor still exist in PaperPort 12? If so, how do I enable it instead of the PDF Viewer? If not, what is a good alternative with as smooth a workflow as the older version?

    It was the strongest point of the software, and really the only thing that set it apart from plain old Windows Fax & Scan.

    Paperport 12 SE

    I am using Windows 7 Pro and have Paper Port 12 SE. I have been using it for years and have had minor issues but this time I am at a total loss. When I scan a document, it works fine the first time, I am able to scan it and then save it. Each subsequent time I try to scan and save, it scans , then the dialog box to save it appears, I give it a name and then the document goes into "la la" land. It will not save it.  I search for it and it is nowhere on my system.  The only way around this problem is to do a restart and then it works again, but it is a royal pain to do this every time I want to scan and save a document. I have a brand new dell OptiPlex 3020 , 64 bit , 8gb ram.  I haven't a clue as to why it is doing this. Any ideas?

    How can I do this?2

    How can I do this?


    I've just bought a Xerox Documate 3120 which comes with PaperPort, OmniPage, and PDF Converter.

    Here's what I would like to do:

    1. scan a bunch of separate documents in one go
    2. have the document picked up by an automatic process
    3. analyse the document and split it up into different documents (eg statements, bills etc.) according to specific content, name and store those documents in the appropriate folder, also indicating the date of the document.

    I'm not necessarily expecting that the bundled versions of software can do this - maybe I need to upgrade them? I'm also aware there is a developer API for nuance products.

    Please advise what product editions/versions would best suite my requirements.

    Kind Regards

    PaperPort not finding file

    I'm running Widows 7 Ultimate with a brand new version of PaperPort (not an upgrade).  I've added a folder to the search index that contains several files with the words 'Bay Area Stairs'.  PaperPort can find some of the files containing this phrase but not all.  None are hand-written but they do have different fonts.  I've tried with several other phrases and it always finds the same files and misses the same files.  I have re-'Add-in-One Search' to the directory but it still can not find those files.  It's not giving any errors about indexing these files though it does when it hits a couple of '.zip' files in the directory which I expected.  Why?

    PaperPort 14 & Microsoft Office 2013

    I am using PaperPort 14 and the Microsoft Office 2013 suite. When I try to convert a OCR PDF document to a Word document it runs through the process but nothing happens after. It does not open the documents in Word like it is supposed to. No error message, it does nothing... I am really stumped, can some please help me troubleshoot this!


    I've already checked the Send to settings and changed it from Word 2007, 2010 to Word 2000,XP

    Paperport 14.5 Index Manager issue


    I'd like to set up my PP 14.5 Index Manager to repeatedly update the index of my PP list.

    It always ends in a crash.

    Running indexing once immediately or at a specific time works well.

    Anyone got an idea?

    PDF Power or Paperport?

    I am currently using PDF Convert Plus and have used Paperport in the past. It is time to upgrade but I am having trouble understanding the differences between the newer Power PDF and Paperport Pro.  Can anyone enlighten me?

    Thank you.
