Imaging for Windows 4


Imaging for Windows release 4.0

Imaging for Windows provides the Imaging component for Microsoft Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 and 8.

OpenText Global 360 Imaging for Windows 4.0 has desktop imaging functions in a single, easy-to-use application that enables users to scan, edit and store paper-based documents. With Imaging for Windows, users can easily convert paper-based information into digital documents that can be viewed, edited, OCRd, distributed via email, and posted to or downloaded from the Internet.

Compatible with Microsoft® Windows 7, Windows Vista® and Windows® XP, Imaging for Windows 4.0 introduces a range of new features that enable greater efficiency and productivity, most notably the ability to view and print PDF files and a new Multiple Document Interface (MDI) within the application viewer that lets you display multiple documents at the same time, with each document displayed in its own window. This enables you to work on different document types using a common viewing platform. For example, you can view both a TIFF image from a scanning application and a PDF document on the same screen at the same time.
