PaperPort, commercial software published by Nuance Communications, is designed to help users to organize digital documents and files. As a document management system, PaperPort is especially useful for working with scanned documents. (Its origins were as software 'bundled' with Visioneer scanners.)
Depending on the version, PaperPort can use its built-in optical character recognition to create "searchable" PDF files that allow efficient 'index and search' with appropriate software, such as Microsoft's Windows Search. Earlier versions of PaperPort relied on Nuance's OmniPage to provide this function.
PaperPort supports the stacking and unstacking of pages in documents, allowing users to break documents up into individual pages and to reassemble them into new PDF files. It also provides image editing tools for these files.
Originally, PaperPort used the .MAX file format natively, newer versions now use .PDF files. Starting with PaperPort version 14, support for .MAX files has been removed for editing purposes, but you can convert .MAX files into .PDF Files for editing purposes.
