How much disk space will I need?
The DocKeep program itself takes less than 4 MB. Image storage, however, is very dependent on the types of documents you scan, the resolution, and your choice of B&W vs. grey vs. color. As a rough guide for business documents, i.e. forms, contracts, letters, accounting documents, etc. scanned at 200 dpi in B&W, plan on using one gigabyte of disk space for roughly 10,000 to 22,000 pages when saving PDF files. When saving as TIFF, plan on 17,000 to 35,000 pages per gigabyte. Color pages can easily take ten times that space or more.
Is there a Windows or Linux version of DocKeep?
No, DocKeep scanning runs exclusively on Macintosh OS X.
Can a Windows or Linux computer use the documents that I scan with DocKeep?
Yes. All of DocKeep's image format options are industry standards supported by all computers. For example, if you scan a document with DocKeep, and email the file to a Windows or Linux user, that user will be able to use it just as he would use any image file in a PDF, JPEG, PNG or TIFF format.
Does DocKeep work in a cross-platform FileMaker environment?
Yes. DocKeep will interface to a Windows or Macintosh FileMaker Server. FileMaker client users on Windows and Macintosh have equal access to retrieve and view scanned documents.
DocKeep looks like it's copying a section of an image, but I can't paste it into Microsoft Word.
DocKeep copies sections of an image in Macintosh's current high resolution format. This allows larger, clearer images to be copied. Older versions of Microsoft Word don't support pasting in high resolution format, but Word 2008 does. Upgrade to Word 2008 if you want to use the added benefits of this feature.
Why do I get a "Cannot Identify the keyboard" message when installing the ScanShare device?
If you are using a ScanShare device, the first time you switch computers, the computer may report that it "cannot identify the keyboard." This is a false alarm. Do not continue with the setup. Just hit the red 'close window' button in the upper left. This should only happen the first time you use this device.
