[sane-devel] OT: Equivalent software to PaperPort etc. for Win

Hi all folks,
I am using SANE for scanning on Linux.
I have been searching for a software from Open Source running on
Linux/Unix equivalent to PaperPort/PageMaker/OmniPage/BZ.Doc of BiziSoft
etc. for Win. They are graphic editing software with database
integrated. They have a platform/table to retain scanned documents
visually and combine them as a file which can be saved in many formats.
Each page inside the file can be rearranged, i.e. page-1 can be
re-inserted as page-13, etc. and all pages will be re-numbered
automatically thereafter. The pages can be editted both graphically or
They have a powerful database to search documents on their titiles or
contents. The database can be update at night at a pre-fixed time. The
documents can be OCR.
To my understanding any graphic editing software on Linux with Plugin
for scanner such as GIMP can do the job. But the operation would not be
so simple and handy.
