  7. Multiple scan - export - delete 'que'

    When multiple scans are exported (to PDF)the originals stay in 'que'. So with the next scan and save/ export they first need to be deleted individually otherwise they are included in the 'save as one PDF'. So after export is completed, the scan'box' should be emptied

  11. Clear All Photos

    Create a function to clear all taken photos so that you can easily start fresh with creating documents instead of having to click on each individual photo and click the trash can icon. Or just make a selection function when viewing all the photos and a mass delete button.

  12. When I choose upload to OneDrive cloud, please provide an option to choose a OneDrive folder rather than defaulting to pictures.

    When I choose upload to OneDrive cloud, please provide an option to choose a OneDrive folder rather than defaulting to pictures. This will not only help us organize better with OneDrive and Microsoft will benefit by driving better OneDrive utilization

  16. Allow reorder of pages after scanning

    After I scan all my pages, if I accidentally forget a page and scan it, it goes to the end of the document.

    Will be very convenient if i can just reorder it at the overview screen at the end.

  17. Better cropping

    Make cropping square, not just straight lines that you have to re-align after moving one vertex. And make it possible to move the entire square/rectangle over the taken picture, such as when you've got the right info in there, but the selected area isn't quite right.

  18. Scan computer screen or projector screen.

    Whenever I take a photo of the computer screen or the projector screen, it will be blur and sometimes have reflected light rays which block the details. I hope that there will be a feature added to scan what is shown on the computer screen or projector screen to make it even sharper and clearer.

  19. Reduce PDF size

    A lot of traveling consultants use this app because we're integrated with O365/OneDrive. When we snap a pic of a receipt, the size is usually greater than 500KB... when you have several PDFs you need to email for expenses, it doesnt really work so well because of size limitations. Lucky for me, I have Acrobat Distiller to reduce the size and re-PDF, but it's such a hassle. An option to reduce the PDF size before upload would be great.
