Doxie Plug and Import


Doxie Plug and Import 1.1

Doxie scanners are mainly about speed and convenience. But it is very inconvenient that you have to launch the Doxie application and click the Import button every time you plug in the Doxie scanner.

Doxie Plug and Import detects when you plug in your Doxie scanner, launches the Doxie application and immediately starts the import of your scanned documents.
This saves you a few clicks and some time every time you use your Doxie scanner.

Things that can happen during the first launch

If you are using Mavericks you may see an error message the first time you turn on your Doxie scanner. Because the script emulates user interactions, Apple regards this as dangerous and expects you to grant access to the script in the Security & Privacy preference panel.

Apple has a detailed description how to do this in its Knowledge Base OS X Mavericks: Enable access for assistive devices and applications
