GScan2PDF 1.4.0 Has Been Released, Bringing Changes

As you know, GScan2PDF is an app for scanning pages and exporting them to PDFs. The user can export scans one by one, in separate PDF files, or export scans all together, in one PDF.

  • Fixed double file overwrite confirmation
  • Update paper size combobox after setting profile
  • Integrate user-defined tools into scan post-process
  • + dialog window for user-defined tools
  • Fixed extended page numbering toggle
  • Fixed restoring crashed session
  • Fixed paper sizes after switching device. (options for A4, US Legal, and US Letter have disappeared in the Geometry
  • options for Scansnap IX500 in 1.3.9)
  • Correct hiding/showing of widgets when saving JPEG
  • Save session after an action rather than before so as not to lose the last action in the event of a crash
  • Update to French translation
