I just purchased a Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500M scanner and am trying to decide on a document manager application. It seems to be Evernote vs. DTPO. I have downloaded and tried a trial version of DTPO, and it is indeed a very powerful tool. Before investing too much time learning this and committing to the purchase price, a couple of questions: 1. Is it easy to retrieve files in the database while not running the program itself? What happens 10 years from now, in the event that my computer is obsolete and DTPO is no longer around? 2. How are the files stored, in what format? I once used a document manager (PaperPort) in an old Windows PC. Initially the files were stored in a proprietary format (".max" files) that is not supported by any other program. I have several years' worth of data stored in that format and can retrieve it only by booting up an old Windows PC and manually retrieving the files. I don't want to repeat that mistake. I understand that PaperPort now stores files in pdf or other "native" formats, but this is too late for me. 3. Is it possible to retrieve "pieces" of files - a paragraph or two, a cut-and-paste clip or an image from another file or a web site, and place this into the DTPO database? I'm thinking specifically of doing a cut-and-paste of text from a web site without having to "print" an entire web page to a pdf file. 4. Is it possible to edit a pdf file from within the DTPO application? Thanks.
