I had a tip from DocumentSnap reader Hamad that was too helpful not to share.
Remember back in November 2009, Fujitsu had to release an update for Abbyy FineReader because it was having problems with Mac OSX Snow Leopard?
However, it turns out that this version of FineReader works for even old-school ScanSnaps too. For example, I’ve even had reports of it working with a ScanSnap fi-5110EOXM from 2005!
It seems that, as long as the PDF is created by a ScanSnap (any Mac ScanSnap), it will work.
So, if you are running Snow Leopard and have an older ScanSnap, give it a try. It will probably work for you too. If you’re using something other than an S1500M or S510M and it works, drop us a comment and let us know.
