Paperport Professional 11.1

Specs: Windows XP, 256 MB
I began working at an office a couple of weeks ago. Part of my job is to scan documents into Paperport, and I have a question about paperport.

Does anyone know if one can add documents to an existing file in Paperport.

I have a huge pile of paperwork that needs to be scanned in one file. I spent all morning scanning, and Paperport hung up on the 590th scan. I lost everything and have to do it all over again?

I can believe there's not a way to save and then continue adding.

What version of Paperport are you running?

Are you saving the files in PDF format?

Never mind the first question - the title of your post already indicated you are using version 11.1.

Nevermind. I received my answer. I called PaperPort tech support, and found out it's called "Stacking," which I did read about in the manual before I called, and the files have to end in .max or .pdf.

Thanks, though.

Great. Better use PDF. Any machines without Paperport will read the file as long as they have PDF viewer like Adobe Acrobat Reader or Foxit. Files with MAX extensions can be read only from within Paperport application.

The dilemma is that my employer needs them with a .tif extension, in order to use them elsewhere. So...I'm going to scan them as .pdf, and then the documents he will actually use will be converted to .tif. Or, as he said today, he could possibly upgrade the other equipment that uses .tif files, so it will accomodate .pdf files. What a pain. :)

Thanks.

Just an FYI - stacked PDF files cannot be converted to TIF. You must first unstack them then convert each unstacked PDF file to TIF. Be aware that this process will be very time consuming.

As common as pdf files are today, and considering the fact that Acrobat Reader has been free for as long as I can remember, I'm surprised that there are still machines out there that need to be "upgraded".

We're all set. Turns out the equipment used in court has .pdf files capability already, so I'm now scanning docs into PaperPort in .pdf format.

Now, I just need to teach myself how to stack. :)

Thanks for everyone's input.
