Whatever has happened to the save function in Simple Scan? I used to (in the days of OpenSuse 12.3 (or even 13.1?)) crop my scans and then save the cropped section to disk. If I cropped another section of the same scan, I could save it under another file name.
This feature was very helpful, for example, when one has a number of photos to be scanned ... one didn't need to scan each photo separately, but several at one time.

Now, (Simple Scan doesn't ask for a file a second time so that all cropped images are saved under the same file name (i.e. the first one set after each scan operation)...What a pity...the time advantage of the old Simple Scan utility has gone!

Why would anyone want to change the old way of operation? It was just perfect!

My current configuration: openSUSE 13.2 (Harlequin) (x86_64) 64-bit / Gnome 3.14.2 / Simple Scan
