gscan2pdf - A GUI to produce a multipage PDF or DjVu from a scan.


Five clicks are required to scan several pages and then save all or
a selection as a PDF or DjVu file, including metadata if required.

gscan2pdf can control regular or sheet-fed (ADF) scanners with SANE via
libimage-sane-perl, scanimage or scanadf, and can scan multiple pages at
once. It presents a thumbnail view of scanned pages, and permits simple
operations such as cropping, rotating and deleting pages.

OCR can be used to recognise text in the scans, and the output
embedded in the PDF or DjVu.

PDF conversion is done by PDF::API2.

The resulting document may be saved as a PDF, DjVu, multipage TIFF file,
or single page image file.

Changelog for 2.9.0:
* + warning if tesseract OCR package for current locale not installed.
* + split tool
* If device-not-found mini-wizard is exited via cancel or by destroying
  it, use ignore response.
* Fix bug manually adding first OCR word to page.
* Limit zoom to 15 to avoid errors like:
  "pango_font_description_set_size: assertion 'size >= 0' failed"
* Fix bug finding page by number
* Update to Hungarian translation (thanks to csola)
* Update to Turkish translation (thanks to Buckethead)
