The excellent ScanSnap family of scanners from Fujitsu have had their software updated to the ScanSnap Manager software package, bringing ScanSnap scanning to Mac Snow Leopard users. The software preference patch offers a workaround for Snow Leopard users by temporally disabling the “Quick Menu” and “Scan to Office” functions until Fujitsu offers a full software update for the ScanSnap. The download and instructions for the patch are available here. Essentially, download the .zip file, unzip it and drag the “” to your “user/library/preferences” folder and replace the old .plist with the new one.
