In work I use my computer to store 90% of my hard copy material. I have a portable scanner (A4) connected 24hrs to do that.
How do I utilize EF to import directly from scanner? currently, this is what I do:
Use Image capture, scan directly to ‘To Import’ folder
Run EF after scan (this is set in the Image Capture.app
My problem is, a lot of the scanned doc contains more then one page, this process becomes time consuming, few question here:
- Can EF combine PDF files?
- I can always scanned into another folder (not EF related), use makePDF or pdfLab to combine the doc, locate the result file in finder then drag to EF
both options involves with multiple step of operation, especially option 2). Which is what I am trying to avoid.
An example would be using software like Yep, it is got a simple but effective scanning interface. Basically it imports all scans into a window, until you are finished with all pages, pressing the ‘Done’ key will import the file as one PDF file.
Most of the PDF file I have are stored using Yep, I want to switch to EF because EF handles almost all other file types. But scanning PDF is something that will be a problem for me.
Please help, thanks.
