Easy Scan Fixes with Page Management

Many times scanning documents in bulk results in documents with blank, rotated or out of order pages. Even if you notice these flaws immediately it is time consuming and frustrating to redo scanning process. Wouldn’t it be nice to fix out of order pages without re-scanning?

Page management is set of features which helps to fix scanning process errors. In other words you can delete, reorder, rotate, and extract pages within document(s).

The best part is that while you will perform above action(s), intermediate document versions are saved – which means, whatever you do you will never lose one bit of information!
