Here are frequently asked questions about ScanWiz
Q. Will ScanWiz work with my scanner?
A. It should work perfectly with all Twain compliant scanners and some WIA scanners (which is over 90% of all available scanners) I would suggest that you download the free trial & check everything works to your expectation.
Q. What version of Adobe Reader (Acrobat) is needed to read documents produced by ScanWiz ?
A. Adobe Reader V3 upwards
Q. Can I use my scanners document feeder and or duplex functions ?
A. Yes it works with all scanner functions provided you use Twain drivers.
Q. Can I email a PDF directly from your software ?
A. You can email without first saving the document by using the PDF preview function Click here for more details
Q. What is the best resolution to use ?
A. 200dpi is fine for most documents but if you have very small print then 300dpi would be better. Higher resolutions will just slow down scanning and produce huge PDF files. Also black and white images are far smaller than greyscale or color.
Q. How do I get the smallest file size for my PDF's ?
A. Scan in Black & White then Scan to PDF will use G4 compression which will make the PDF's 5-10x smaller than grayscale or color. 1 page @ 200 dpi will typically be less than 30kb
Q. Can I produce color PDF documents ?
A. Yes, ScanWiz has advanced compression for color images which makes the files smaller while still retaining excellent quality.
Q. Can ScanWiz produce searchable PDF's ?
A. No the PDF's created contain images only.
Q. Does ScanWiz work with Windows 7 ?
A. Yes both Scan to PDF and ScanWiz are fully tested on Windows 7 32 and 64 bit . We have also tested with the pre release of Windows 8 so future compatibility should not be a problem.

ScanWiz is software done right
"I downloaded the scanning software, scanned and PDF'd a legal document in about 3 minutes. I am totally impressed with this software. I messed with this process for over 2 hours a month ago and never came up with the results that I wanted. Now with ScanWiz, I feel like my contract signing and sending processes are going to get so much easier and faster."
