I bought a small Brother document scanner (ADS2700W) to scan several hundred pages of documents.

Is there a thread recommendation for a software that has a good workflow for scanning en masse, and then sorting out which pages to save together and which to separate?

Ex: Perhaps I load 50 pages in the scanner , which I might want to save as one 16 page document, 4 single-pagers, and then one 30 page doc. Iíd rather sort this kind of thing out on the computer instead of micromanaging which sets of docs I feed into the scanner.

I don't know the name of any specific software, but the way to handle it is usually to have some separator pages with some kind of bar code printed, that instructs the software how to split or where to save the following pages.

Ah, I see. Wasnít quite the workflow I was hoping for, but I havenít needed to deal with this before and didnít know what was common. Thanks!

I ended up doing my work in separate steps. I am doing bulk scanning all into one big undifferentiated PDF, with OCR, auto-rotate, whatever. Then, Iím using PDF XChangeís split/merge tool.

That second tool gives me exactly what I want I think ó I can look at all the pages and easily separate them into separate documents.

Thanks for the suggestions!
