Re: Scan Tailor Advanced

Can scantailor detect corrupted files? My HDD is corrupting images at wild. When a project happens to have one image file corrupted, scantailor overloads the HDD to the point that windows almost completely freezes. I can't even load task manager to terminate scantailor because it takes like 10 minut...

Re: Scan Tailor Advanced

Noticed that blank pages causes scantailor to crash when exporting pages, if there is no content box.

Re: Two very similar pages, two very different results

Changing the settings doesn't help. However, if I go in image editing program and erase the gray background by hand, then ST doesn't "get confused" by the background.

Why does scantailor erase shaded areas? I'm scanning many math and physics books. There are lots of pages with shaded graphs or figures such as triangles, circles, etc. The shaded area is shaded with black dots with a pattern to make it gradually darker or lighter. Scantailor always tries to clean s...

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

So this explains my previous issue. Some books have very dark pictures on some pages, or dark boxes with light text. In mixed mode those areas happen to be partially erased the same way that dark page with white text above was.

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

It is erasing areas that I did select manually.
