Many people have heard of the portable document scanner called NeatReceipts. NeatReceipts comes with a piece of scanning software called NeatWorks.
What happens if you want to use the NeatWorks software but don’t need the scanner part? Will NeatWorks play nicely with the Fujitsu ScanSnap?
If you have the newest version of NeatWorks, it will. From the software, you can choose to scan from the ScanSnap. If you have an older version, Ted Landau from MacWorld found out what you need to do:
As it turned out, to get things working, I had to select NeatWorks from ScanSnap Manager’s Application pop-up menu rather than go the other direction (selecting ScanSnap from NeatWorks, as I had been trying to do thus far). I now know this because, after contacting NeatWorks technical support, they directed me to a PDF document that explains it all in detail. After doing this, the pairing worked!
Do any of you use NeatWorks with the ScanSnap? Or do you like the NeatReceipts scanner better? Leave a comment and let us know what you think.
