Comment: trays, scansnap and spotlight (Score 1) 371

by fonky (#36000058) Attached to: Ask Slashdot: How Do You File Paper Documents At Home?

Any documents that come in are filed in 4-5 trays depending on whether its personal or professional mail. After a while the trays get filed into maps.

Important documents are scanned.
The scansnap i use is a breeze: very quick, doublesided, feeder scans. The pdfs end up in an action folder which triggers an OCR conversion on the pdf, and that is then automatically indexed by Mac OS X.
If it's a really important doc, i will go through the trouble of moving the doc from the scan folder to a hierarchical folder structure, but due to spotlight I tend to do this less and less. So basically the scanning process is a one button effort.

This setup works perfectly for me since years (and i have a *lot* of documents to manage).

IDEs With VIM Text Editing Capability? 193

An anonymous reader writes "I am currently looking to move from text editing with vim to a full fledged IDE with gdb integration, integrated command line, etc. Extending VIM with these capabilities is a mortal sin, so I am looking for a linux based GUI IDE. I do not want to give up the efficient text editing capabilities of VIM though. How do I have my cake and eat it too?"
