Easier Scanning with DEVONthink

DEVONthink’s new scanning function unified the various scanning options of previous versions and made paper capture available also for users of the Personal and Pro editions. But users are still missing some of the more advanced options, for example convenient capturing of documents with multiple pages. DEVONthink 2.4.2, which we have released today, supports the option Combine Into Single Document whenever you scan as PDF or TIFF.

I open the scanner, stick them in, choose an option from the ScanSnap icon in the Dock, and push the big blue button on the scanner. Within moments (or minutes if I chose to run OCR) the entire pile is onscreen, even the double-sided forms and the pages that emerge from the backpack slightly crumpled. (more)

My Paperless Trail

In a recent post blogger and  Ryan Irelan describes how he uses DEVONthink Pro Office for working remotely:

Last Fall, with the impending arrival of our first child and initial plans to sell our house, I decided to simplify our life by reducing the amount of stuff we kept around. Part of this was my Great Paperless Office Initiative 2010 (affectionately referred to as “sigh” by my wife). […] My tools are: DEVONthink Pro Office because of its ability to OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanned documents and the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300 scanner. Together I can almost effortlessly scan, OCR, and organize my documents. The result is a paperless, searchable and smart filing system. (more)
