NAPS2 7.4.0 changelog:

  • Added Undo/Redo (from the right-click menu or Ctrl+Z)
  • Deletions can't be undone
  • Added Split/Combine (under the Image menu)
  • Split can be used for book scanning to separate pages
  • Combine can be used to include front/back sides of an ID card in one image
  • Added "Multiple Languages" as an option for OCR (in the OCR language dropdown)
  • Added a "Fix white balance and remove noise" OCR option
  • This can improve OCR with low-quality scans, but will make OCR slower
  • This is equivalent to using "Document Correction" before OCR
  • Upgraded Tesseract from 5.2.0 to 5.3.4 for OCR
  • Added a "Show native TWAIN progress" profile option (under Advanced)
  • Bug fixes
