I wasn't aware of that, actually. Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for.
I used to read this, which seemed incomplete, but Tulon's link is the full version of that.

Re: Scan Tailor

Tulon: thanks for the release, and for your continued efforts. The new version is under torture, and any secrets revealed will be on your desktop asap! Would you mind a few words on the new features/most important fixes, and/or what's important to test? phaedrus & dict: regarding the DjVu GUI, what ...

Re: Scan Tailor

I've extended the adjustment range to [-30 .. +30] in 0.9.8. Separation into text / non text images and postprocessing using 3rd party software would be your last resort. Great! ST's output will be even better! I'm actually resorting to postprocessing, because it's so hard to get the pictures right...

Re: Scan Tailor

Amjad, what you are trying to do is not the way to go. You've already found one reason you can't use automask cache files, and there are more - all of them technical and boring. Would it really be that hard to add manual zones to the mask? Didn't think so. Please ignore my request in that case. Sca...

Re: Scan Tailor

Well, I have good news and bad news. The good news is the mask is already dumped to disk, even if no debug! (Thanks Tulon for reading my mind!). I realized a subdirectory "automask" is created in the cache, and the mask is written there, always. Great! (by the way, I found it right away in Task.cpp,...

Re: Scan Tailor

Thanks Mandor for the pointers. Layer Tailor just outputs white pages! Broken. ST Separator speaks Russian only! Niet ! But. Separator (before you edited your post) actually does something useful: it has the same output as Scan Tailor + the text layer. So, technically speaking, it doesn't separate t...

Re: Scan Tailor

This allowed people to write scripts that would separate Scan Tailor's Mixed TIFFs into pairs of "text only" and "pictures only" images and feed them to command-line JB2 and IW44 encoders. That's definitely the bestest and only smart way of doing it. Can Scan Tailor output those separately? Or can ...
