Paperstore is a document management tool, designed for the efficient management of large collections of documents in a variety of formats. Documents can be scanned from any TWAIN compatible scanner or digital camera, or imported to a project with the option of either copying them to a single project directory or referencing them in their existing location. This allows Paperstore to manage documents without affecting the existing organisation of your hard disks. Paperstore can also search your hard discs for files to import.
Documents, once added, are organised into a hierarchical structure, which should be familar to all users of Windows. Documents can be viewed, printed and email and, if they are image files, they can also be processed using included image processing plugins or using the default image editor on your PC. Information can be associated with documents, by way of user-definable, database-style fields and these can be used to order, locate or group documents for collective emailing, printing or viewing.
Projects can be exported, with optional HTML files to allow them to be posted to a website or simply viewed without the application. Projects may also be partially exported, so that files may be archived to removable media such as CD-R, saving hard disc space, whilst remaining accessible from within Paperstore, which automatically prompts for the correct CD when a document is selected.
Support is included for AVI, BMP, JPG, MP3, PDF, PNG, RTF, TXT and WAV files and users can also add user defined file types for anything which can be viewed by Windows Media Player or by Notepad. Unsupported file types can also be included, with external viewers being called when a file is viewed. Scanned images can be stored in BMP, JPG or PNG formats (OCR support is intended in a later release).
