Patch for djvubind

Sometims the book pages doesn't start on 1, but on 7 for instance. Up unitl that, they are in roman numerals or not at all. I added a small patch with option to specify start for page number, "--title-start-number'. It was for me, but anyone can use it. I will send to the maintainer also. :-) *** dj...

Add pages to project?

Is it not possible to add pages to project after the project is created? If you forgot one page, you have to restart the entire project? Maybe there is something I'm missing... :oops:

Re: Resolved crash in Scantailor 0.9.11.1 (Ubuntu 11.10 amd6

I created a project with just one page (copied, so exact same settings for that page/image), but then it worked. I suspect that the output rectangle is related to all files in the project and their alignment to each other. If this is indeed a rounding error, the you have to have the entire project f...

Resolved crash in Scantailor 0.9.11.1 (Ubuntu 11.10 amd64)

I had a crash when generating out from the above mentioned version of ScanTailor. At first, I aimlessly changed the content box on the page it crashed and i helped. Then, that didn't help so I decide to try debugging. Compiled with Debug, and run through gdb. Assert failure in the OutputGenerator co...

Re: The strange "cyan" ghostly thing

I get cyan margins when the content box is outside of the page. Happened when I copied content box from one page to another, especially if the rotation was (slightly) different.

Not sure if same problem, but mention it anyway.

Re: Platen: Theory And Practice

About lightening the platen. What if having many small LED:s/lamps (4-6?) on each side of the platen. It looks like it would be quite evenly lit?

Re: New page turner idea submitted

Maybe I'm stupid, but in this kind of design, how do one guarantee that only one page is picked at a time. It's hard enough doing manually sometimes!

Re: Content box, margin and mixed mode?

OK, thanks. When you say that I should select conten, do you also inlcude all the pictures in the content box? And also the "marker" in the margin? Also, what is the purpose of the picture box?

Content box, margin and mixed mode?

I have been fiddling with content box, margins and mixed mode, but I'm not sure I have chosen the best solution. The book contains pages like the ones below (most of the pages contains graphics like this). I'm thinking of using colour/greyscale mode, that should be best, right? But what about conten...
