<What's New>

PaperPort 12 includes a number of valuable new features to help you view, organise, find and manage your documents more quickly and easily than ever before.



New, Streamlined User Interface
PaperPort 12 is now easier to use because all the program features are presented on a set of tabbed, ribbon-style toolbars that logically group functions with clear text descriptions. The new ‘Scan Now’ button lets you can scan documents with one click - without having to change to the scanner settings view. A customisable Quick Access Toolbar appears above the ribbon toolbars, so you can put your most frequently-used features at your fingertips.

Improved PDF Handling Performance
PaperPort 12 enables you to open and display PDF files faster than ever using PDF Viewer Plus, a newly-developed Nuance PDF handling application that can replace Adobe® Reader®. PDF Viewer Plus opens files much faster than the general-purpose ImageViewer (also available in PaperPort 12) . The new viewer optimises the rendering resolution for each element on the page, to yield a cleaner display and optimum print resolution.

Enhanced PDF Features
PDF Viewer Plus provides a wide range of new PDF features, including improved annotations and dynamic or transparent stamps. In PDF Viewer Plus, you can send images within a PDF document to the ImageViewer, where they can be enhanced using Scanner Enhancement Technology (SET™) tools. When you close ImageViewer, the modified images automatically appear back inside the PDF.
You can fill and email PDF forms, or create new ones from static forms, with the updated FormTyper™, which can instantly turn any static form into a fillable one. FormTyper is now integrated into the PDF Viewer Plus and uses Logical Form Recognition® technology to detect the form elements. It also gives you greater control over element properties.
Creation of searchable PDF files is now available through Scanner Profiles, via a right-click ‘Save As’ operation on the PaperPort Desktop, or directly in the PDF Viewer Plus application. This makes the content of your scanned paper documents or image files accessible to search engines such as Windows® or Google® Desktop Search.

More Accurate OCR
PaperPort 12’s OCR (Optical Character Recognition) scanning accuracy has been significantly increased over previous versions. This improvement yields greater success when searching the content of Searchable PDF file archives. What’s more, you can now apply language settings to OCR for even greater accuracy in all supported languages.

OCR Support for Digital Camera Pictures
The Send To Bar options for text applications have been updated to include a PaperPort OCR option for digital camera correction. With this new feature, you can now take a picture of a document and accurately convert it into a text document. This is done by applying Nuance’s 3D Correction methods that flatten page images and correct distortions, thereby increasing the accuracy of the resulting text document.

Updated How-To-Guides
PaperPort 12 offers an updated series of illustrated ‘mini-guides’ that show typical tasks and processes, as well as provide quick access to program areas and relevant Help topics. The How-To-Guides can now be switched on in the Help section of the tabbed ribbon toolbar.

Enhanced Folder Management
With PaperPort 12, the number of colours available for distinguishing folders has increased from 9 to 29. Colour-mark your important folders so that you can easily find them in your folder structure.
