I just purchased a ScanSnap S1300 (yay!), and I'm excited about scanning all the bazillions of piles of papers I've been saving over the years. Besides the regular everyday papers, I also homeschool which generates a bunch of paper even though I try to reduce/reuse/recycle as much as I can.
Most of the items I'll be scanning will be for reference or education, but there are a few things that will need to be changed and/or updated as time goes by. What would be the best format for me to save those files? The ScanSnap software Evernote quick buttons appear to only save as PDF or JPEG. Should I save these particular files as Word documents instead? Or as both a PDF and DOC file to have the OCR function and the ability to tweak as needed? I don't have Acrobat programs other than Reader, so I'm limited as to what I can do with PDF files.
I'd also like to figure out a way (hopefully free) to sometimes split the PDF files that ScanSnap creates. I have a lot of magazine articles and would love to remove the adds and backsides of a bunch of articles. I might have to figure out a way to afford software to manipulate PDFs the more I think about it. Ugh...
