Have used this program over several years and found it outstanding. just two issues: 1. By default, my Fujitsu scanner only scans the first 279mm of an A4 page. There is a simple fix. Choose manual paper size (which defaults to 279) and scan. Then select A4 and you will get a full A4 scan. Either the Fujitsu firmware or the libsane-perl driver defaults to a less then A4 scan. 2. It would be sooooo nice to have a key combination (ctrl-i?) to initiate a scan. Would much improve my work-flow. Many thanks for an brilliant program.
Very userfriendly and featurerich app. The very first app that makes digital document management a feasable option. I am scanning my entire paper administration, everything through a scanner with ADF. One of the most impressive features is the poor-mans doublesided solution: just scan the bunch of paper, turn arround the stack, tell software that backside is now being scanned and the pages are automagicly sorted in the right order. I was on 0.9.something (std debian pkg) will now try the 1.0.something version. I specificly hope that this will be slightly more multitasking. I would like to save, sort, turn arround and remove scanned pages while the scanner is feeding more to my computer. If it's still not possible I will file a feature request for this (if not already done by someone else). summary: This is a real top app!
Very easy to use gscan2pdf
One of the easiest apps to use
