  • Very nice work! Samsung's Easy Document Creator stopped working and was unable to be resuscitated after many wasted hours. This does just what I need

  • I am using NAPS2 for 2 years now, it is perfect.The only missing feature is the PDF as PDF/A format!

  • Worked for what I needed it for. Needed to merge pdf documents together.

  • EXCELLENT PROJECT!! In answer to a couple other reviews, I've built multiple Profiles to use depending on my scan job, i.e., one for text, one for B&W forms, one for PDFs, one for photos, etc.,etc.,etc. Simply select the Profile I want and start to scan. NAPS2 also DOES, IN FACT, import PDFs created from non-NAPS2 sources. It simply asked me to download a separate add-on component which I did. Works flawlessly. For Glass, Feeder, or Duplex I simply select the pre-built Profile I plan to use, Edit the "Paper Source" and go. I suppose I could also build separate Profiles for the different feeds but I haven't found that necessary. Again, EXCELLENT PROJECT! THANKS!!

  • Fantastic for storing documents. Too many programs scan single pages into PDF, then you need another program to merge the PDF pages which is too much work. This makes it almost a breeze. The addition of "alternate interleave" just made it even simpler! Thank you! Other scan programs give flexibility when scanning images to get better colour resolution etc. Where images are to be in the PDF document, I add them with the JPG merge ability of NAPS2. As to the negative review by nevergetany ... I think most of us who want NAPS2 aren't looking for an all singing all dancing scan program ... I was looking for a scan program that would work for document storage ... that I could add pages to month by month, then merge them all together into a single document at year end. It doesn't advertise itself as an all singing all dancing scan program.
