In DT2 when importing documents from a ScanSnap scanner, a dialogue box comes up allowing me to quickly name the document and apply tags etc. In DT3 this doesn’t seem to happen. I have followed the instructions for configuring the ScanSnap software, but the document is imported into the inbox with a numerical string as its title. I then have to go into the inbox, select the document, rename it & add my tags which feels very clunky. Is there any way to replicate the DT2 behaviour?
Do your documents from the Snap scan actually get OCR’ed. Mine didn’t despite the setting being checked. The Snap Scan also doesn’t show up in the Image Capture list (possibly because it uses a snap scan driver?) Could the Snap Scan scan not be considered a scan because it doesn’t use image capture?
No. ScanSnap scanners have never been controllable with DEVONthink, Image Capture, etc. Fujitsu keeps them locked down pretty tightly, so you have to use their scanning application. This is not new behavior.
The integration with DEVONthink Pro Office was detection of the scan from the ScanSnap app and initiating OCR (if specified).
And no, that menu item is disabled since (1) this is still beta software, and (2) there is an issue with the new ScanSnap Home software playing nice with DT3. We are working on it.
I have just tried exactly the same settings (expect that I do not have a duplex scanner), it imported and OCR’d without a problem. In the DEVONthink->Install Add-ons menu can you check that you have the latest version of the ABBYY OCR installed.
Interestingly, once I deactivated all of the settings in de OCR menu, restarted DT and then reactivated the settings again it works as it used to.
Now I noticed one more issue: The file name, that you give in the import dialog is not being used. DT seems to take one of the first sentences of the OCR’d file. I did not find an option to turn this behavior off. Ist there any option for it?
