Re: Scanning/processing on Android phone/tablet

I don't want to discourage the bookscanner, but I had recently seen a software by Adobe for this. How does that compare to yours?

I really appreciated your work and efforts, and want to express my thanks to you. Use the donate link below: you needn't a paypal account, just click the continue link at the page bottom. I don't touch Paypal even with a 10 foot pole. And from one mini-minor release to the next (14 to 15), one can't...

Re: Scan Tailor Advanced

A new update with new features, fixes and improvements has been released. And from one mini-minor release to the next (14 to 15), one can't use the little update to continue to work on current projects: "The project file is incompatible with the current application version". Please add a feature th...

Re: Scan Tailor Advanced

I wonder where this version of Scan Tailor Advanced stores its config? The previous version were simply unpacked into a subfolder of UTIL, and kept the config in a subdirectory CONFIG. The "scantailor.ini" of 10.0.14 is located not only in the "config\scantailor" subdirectory of the program directo...

How can I flatten this document in this photo? It is a bit wrinkled and I'm at a loss.
You could put it under a sheet of glass, or you could try to iron it, but not hot.

Or fold the folds or creases in reverse direction, but doing it gently.

Why do you think that this is so hard to do?
Well, I do not find this hard.
Sorry for the confusion by my quoting. My above quoted question was addressed at BryanMatt who had opened this topic, not to zbgns.

Re: Converting PDF to ePub Calibre not working

So you have Acrobat Pro , that means you can export the whole text into a MS Word document (Acrobat 11 should know DOCX), and use this to build an EPUB. It might be that Acrobat Pro 11 can even export to ODT, the text fo...
