Is there any alternative to separator sheets in Batch Scanning?
Yes. Spitfire provides a tool that can be use to process a single TIF file with many, many page and quickly sift through the file to virtually ‘staple‘ pages together. For example, you scan a pile of 130 sheets from 48 mixed, multipage documents into a single TIF file. Using this tool, you end up with 48 smaller TIF files, each with the pages from a single document. This Spitfire Image Stapler can be installed from http://www.spitfiremanagement.com/StaplerTool_v2p1/publish.htm. When you run the Image Stapler, you will be asked for a source TIF file and a target folder.
The Spitfire Image Stapler includes a help screen and can be operated using the numeric keypad.
- The + key moves the top page from the right to the left
- The – key backs up a page
- The ENTER key creates a new TIF for the pages on the left hand side, then moves the top sheet from the right to left to start the next document.
Many sites that use this tool find a hybrid approach best: they sort all the single page documents into one pile, and place all the multipage documents into a second pile. The single page documents are then processed directly without using the Image Stapler. This tool is provided by Spitfire, but is just a TIF file tool. It does not correspond to a specific version of Spitfire.
