Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: gscan2pdf

Ubuntu 9.10, gscan2pdf 0.9.29-1

I have a pile of paper that I put in the scanner's feeder. It is double-
sided. I scan the pile's recto. Then I re-insert the pile, but in
reverse order, so the pile's verso is scanned. This generates a document
with pages 1,3,5,7 then 8,6,4,2 for an 8-page pile.

There should be a quick way to perform the re-ordering once the document
is scanned. An option in the Tools menu would be great.

I currently have to select the last half of the pages, re-order them
starting at 100, incrementing by -1 to reverse them. Then I re-order the
first half starting at 1, incrementing by 2. Lastly, I re-order the last
half again, this time starting at 2, incrementing by 2. It is quite
inconvenient when scanning many piles of double-sided paper.

If there was a scripting tool, I could add "custom tools" to the Tools
menu. But that's for a separate bug report :)
