1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor installation 25 April 2009
By A. S. Garton VINE VOICE
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I was disappointed in this software from the outset. I wanted it largely for its ability to save and, to a degree, edit PDF documents.

I have a PC running XP, with service pack 3 installed. I also run a laptop with Vista Home Premium. Both are pretty new, and have a good specification. However, from the outset, on both machines, I had all sorts of trouble installing this software. I had to close every items of software, which is perhaps not that uncommon (for kit built in the 90's!).

However, the real frustrations came in when I had to access the task manager and locate and terminate processes running on my machine. Frankly, that just isn't on in a modern piece of software. It got really silly when I had to access processes that the system (classified as another user) was running.

I finally got PaperPort working, but to be honest it was down hill from there. There are better products on the market, and I fail to see how the average user will ever get to the point of using this software without some technical support.

Not impressed. Only for those who are very technically proficient.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
It's hard to review this product, because on one hand I think it's a decent enough product that a lot of people will find useful, and it provides a PDF conversion function which only the most dedicated word processing packages offer (Corel's WordPerfect is the best for me). The problems I found, and others seem to have also, is that it didn't like Vista. Or possibly Vista didn't like PaperPort. That's more likely, but either way, it's a problem. The result was it got buggy when trying to use my scanner. It may well be that the software works best for more recent hardware, but again, these are things users really need to know in advance. It might just be my own hardware, but how do I know?

However, I did get it to run on my sister's PC, and gave it a good look. The auto-adjustment feature is probably going to help people who don't need perfection. It works nicely, the adjustments are generally quite acceptable, but it doesn't get it right every time as far as the perimeters of the document are concerned. But if, for example, you want to convert a printed document or text book to a PDF for your own practicalities and perfection isn't a requirement, then I really think it's a good product for you. I'm all for any product that assists moving towards paper-free (except for fiction) so I'm inclined to give this four stars for the function of it, but it loses a star because of the aforementioned problems.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good all rounder 26 Feb 2009
By marcoscu TOP 500 REVIEWER
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Over the years I have installed and then removed various versions of this product and I think this version will be no exception.

Paperport has been around for years, so it seems, and although the interface has been smoothed out a bit and attempts made to modernise it there is still and old fashioned feel to it, at least to me.

Being old fashioned can have some good points and to this end Paperport boasts that almost unknown feature in modern software - a printed manual. Manual is perhaps too grand a name for a 40 page user guide but it is a very welcome addition to the product and does make life easier at times.

I had some initial problems with the install Flash page but once I got to the installer application itself all went well. I can confirm that it installs and runs on my Windows 7 test machine as well as in Vista. Good one.

Paperport is well laid out and easy to use. You scan, print, file and edit your images and pdf's all from the one interface and then file them if you wish without ever leaving paperport.

I had no trouble using my Canon 8400F scanner with paperport under both Vista and W7 but other people with different scanners have reported problems.

If you are looking for an easy to use all in one solution to manage your scanned documents then this would be a good buy. However, if you prefer to deal with the your documents in separate stages as when required then this is not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very good business solution for organising docs 16 Sep 2007
I bought this as I had an earlier free version with a scanner. I did not really use this to scan in documents but rather to store documents. The best feature for me is that you can print to the program instead of a printer and store it there. Better still you can edit the document once it has printed which is easy to do. The pro version easily converts to PDF etc so emailing on is easy. Just using the print to program is really useful as some print options do not allow you to store a document and so you can not save it to computer and edit it or do anything else with it, so this feature is worth the money for me. I bought the product on launch for 69 which I felt good value, especially as today the price is still higher - however I would buy again at the higher price if I had to as I find I am so used to the features it would be hard to do without it. It also has other features such as scanning and paper organisation which I have not really made use of yet but can see the benefits. Also included with this is the PDF program that allows you to compbine different documents and create a single or multiple PDF files and I use this occasionally as well. Highly recommended.
