    Scanning Multiple Pages

    Hello All,

    I have recently purchased a Kodak i2900 scanner. We had a PC in our office with Omnipage Ultimate ready to go.

    I am having a nightmare trying to figure out how to get Omnipage to scan multiple pages using the ADF. At present, I put my multi-page document on the ADF of the scanner and click Scan Pages. After each page I get a box that reads "Continue Automatic Processing What would you like to do now", it gives me 2 options "Stop loading pages" or "Add more pages".

    Is there a way / profile I can create, so that it scans the whole document in the ADF reader without asking me after each page and also set it to read both sides of the page, for double sided documents?

    Kind regards

    Automatic naming of files by invoice number?2

    Automatic naming of files by invoice number?

    I'm looking for good OCR software (OmniPage was highly recommended to me).  I'm already convinced this is a "pipe dream," but seeing as how I haven't used OCR since 1999 or so, I figured I'd ask anyway:


    If I have a stack of 50 invoices I'd like to scan to individual PDFs, can the software automatically save each page as a PDF file without having to click a button for each page (or any kind of human interaction)?  I'm assuming it can, but I needed to ask, because it's pertinent to my next question (the pipe dream):

    Let's say the stack of invoices are placed in numerical order (1001, 1002, and so on to 1050), can the software "read" that number and save invoice 1001 with 1001 as a filename?  If so, let's say those same documents AREN'T in numerical order; could the software still save the documents with the correct invoice number?

    To make things even more difficult, I need to mention that my scanning needs require me to save documents complete with customer signatures, so I'm NOT looking for the software to convert anything to text...

    Thanks for any input you may have...

    Omnipage Ultimate freezes at end of OCR proofreading

    I'm using Windows 7 and at the end of the ocr proofreading the program freezes.  I can't get out of the ocr nor close the program normally.  I have to use the task manager to close it out.  I can only use the scanned material after restarting Omnipage and opening the workload.

    COnverting text to mp3

    I'm new to Omni and am finding it quite overwhelming.  I wanted a simple text to speech converter and am now wondering whether this is overkill.  I'd like to take a pdf file and convert it to an mp3 and be able to choose a nice voice for the final result.  Am I able to do this with Omni?

    Script Error when I open Omnipage685.0

    Script Error when I open Omnipage

    When I open Omnipage Professional 18 I get an Internet Explorer Script Error on Line 27, Character 2, URL: My internet explorer comes up twice saying that it can't display the webpage. What would cause this? Does Omnipage automatically try to open a browser window when you start the application? The message asks if I want to continue running scripts on this page? If I answer yes or no (doesn't seem to matter which) I get an error message: HTML Parsing Error: Unable to modify the parent container element before the child element is closed (KB927917). I am running Internet Explorer 8 and my operation system is Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3. Any ideas to fix this?

    How can I copy the workflow results window content...

    How can I copy the workflow results window content (files' names with errors)

    I was loading the files to Omnipage. The “Workflow results” message box appeared showing a list of files (a type of an error and a path of the file on the hard drive) that couldn’t be loaded because of the errors.

    I want to have a list of files that cannot be loaded (over a thousand files with an error). I want to copy the list from this Workflow results window, paste it to excel or word and extract the files’ names.

    How can I do that, because I cannot even select anything (to try ctrl+c) in this Workflow results window.

    Many thanks,

    eMail Associations and Default Programs?


    I have just received a new but old copy of Omnipage Pro (v15). Although it works, every time I open OP I get a message about not having an email program or not having it correctly associated in Default Programs. This is all very well but Thunderbird IS in Default Programs although it may not be associated with the extension required by OP. Snag is no one is letting on what extension has to be associated with Thunderbird. Can anyone please advise me on this please as I can't so far find anything on the internet as to what to do get rid of this annoying dialogue. Thanks very much.

    PS See the graphic for the error message received.

    OmniPage 19 won't start3

    OmniPage 19 won't start

    Hi everyone, 

    This may sound like the same problem I had before. I did have it running for about a week and it stopped with the same message that the program won't load. This was the package that also included PaperPort and a number of other modules that all run fine. The program also runs OK on my son's laptop which does not have internet access. My question now is. Could one of the Windows 7 updates be the cause of this problem, if so which one(s)? I did do an update re-install. That's when the program started working. After Microsoft downloaded a lot of updates, the program suddenly stopped. Microsoft tech assured me that Windows updates would not cause this problem, but I think something in Windows is not allowing the program to run. I am using Windows 7 Premium 64-bit.

    Installation Problem OP 18 Pro Win 7 (64)

    Installation Problem OP 18 Pro Win 7 (64)

    Windows 7 x64
    OmniPage 18 Pro Prod ID: OP-1118-001-11260.1426

    Computer was running OP 18 Pro on Windows 8.1 Pro (x64) when hard drive crashed.  OP 18 Pro was working great.

    New installation of Win 7 (x64) and OP 18 after crash.

    After installation, the 'Convert Now Wizard' and other right-click integration is missing.  The only right-click integration seems to be on graphics files.  I used to be able to right click and convert PDFs, etc.

    I've tried uninstalling, re-installing a few times, running the remover took between, etc., but still seem unable to get back to where I was. 

    See attached, formerly and currently shots.  If I right-click a PDF file now, there is no OmniPage option on the menu at all.

    I'd appreciate any suggestions.  I really miss that right-click!
