files that are too big. For drawings or blueprints I use PNG. For multipage 
scans like contracts I use PDF. There is an experimental branch that add a 
headless SANE (

(, this 
would allow for scanning documents directly into Mayan straight from the 
scanner and not having to use a separate program. It is a proof of concept 
but if improved could be added in the next version.
