How Do You Change Paperpoint Max Files To

Recommended Posts

I have some medical records from old drive that were copied using PaperPort. In transfering them to new drive, I have to use a PaperPort viewer to read them. Is there a way to change them from Max files to something else so I don't have to use the viewer to read them?

Thanks

I don't kow if this helps but I did find this:

I am still looking into converting them.

Thanks for replying.

I'm using the viewer and I have graphic convertor from Corel.

My problem is I can open the file which is text using the viewer, but when I try to change it using the graphic convertor I can't find the file.

Only the folder shows and when you open it there is nothing in it.

I had the same problem, and found two ways to do it:

First you should download PaperPort Viewer from ScanSoft. This program is free, but it only allows you to view the .max files, not to convert them. Here are the two options after that:

1) You can download a program called "LeadTools ePrint IV" from Lead Technologies (http://www.leadtools.com). This program works like a PDF creator in that it installs as a "printer", but it is more general, allowing creation of almost any kind of graphic file (including .jpeg). So you just go into PaperPort Viewer and "print" the file to ePrint as a .jpeg file. This is very easy, but ePrint costs $99. There is a free evaluation version, but it puts a nasty stamp on all images, so is not really usable.

2) The second option is to use a "screen capture" program (like "Capture"--available as part of a free evaluation package of Corel's Graphic suite, at "www.corel.com";). Then just open PaperPort Viewer, pull up the image, & capture the screen, saving it into whatever format you want via Paint, PhotoShop, Draw, etc. This option is a bit more of a hassle, but it does a good job & all the components are free (at least in evaluation versions).

Hope this helps.

Once you open it in your viewer, can you copy & paste it into something like Word, or Notepad?

I can only "save as" and when I try to open it in wordpad or notepad it is all gibberish.

Right now I am working with image convertor and MWSnap 3.

My problem is I cannot scroll to capture the whole page. If I reduce it in size, then I can't read it

That computer is not hooked up to a printer, so I am going to burn a page to cd and then print it out on this computer to see if the page is normal.

Thanks maxdog4 for the converter program. I'll check it out later. I can convert my files using image converter or Mssnap 3.

My problem is when I use the PaperPort Viewer and open a file, I can not see the whole page. Therefore I can not capture the whole page, only what is showing in the screen. If I zoom out to make the whole page appear, then I can not read it when I convert it as it is too small. So I have to copy the top half and then the bottom half.

I was wondering if there is a way to get the whole page in viewer since I can't scroll or is that feature only in the paid version. I don't know if I am making any sense here or not.

Thanks any way for all the advice.
