I have a bunch of documents to scan and wanted to automate my workflow.
I am looking for a way to do the following actions via a script or stack multiple short cuts together (via Elgato Stream Deck):
- Select Import View - DONE via OPTION+CMD+3
- Select Device “Scanner (Network)”
- Click “Scan” Button
I searched the forum and also googled it but did not find any solution.
So looking for help here in the official forum
Do you have a scanner with or without a document feeder?
As an FYI: Automation the pushing of buttons is rarely a good approach.
thanks for the swift reply.
One without document feeder. So just a plain old top loader scanner
Yeah I know, but I scan a few dozen pages a day in home office and DT runs always in the background on one of my monitors.
So after I changed the document in the scanner, I just like to run a script via Ray.Cast or just push a button on my Stream Deck instead of bringing DT to the foreground and navigating to the “Scan” Button with the mouse
Why don’t you just us the scanning software that came with the scanner, and output it to a specific folder in the Finder. You could then index the folder, and use a smart rule to process the scans, as described in our recent blog post…
