Re: BookScanWizard 2.0

I just uploaded a new version of BSW (2.0.2), that addresses some of these issues. It now keeps track of the last directory and defaults to that. It should save preferences under Linux now. I added a new command: MedianFilter. This will get rid of noise by scanning an image, and replacing each pixel...

Re: BookScanWizard 2.0

Kempelen, Thanks for your posting. I like hearing that people are using the software. And thanks for the Hungarian intro! I think there's a general problem where Linux isn't saving preferences.. I'll look into that. And I agree having a list of recent files would be a good idea too. As far as the sp...

Re: sodering wires

Either one will work, but in general, its best to choose the red wire. (Black is generally ground).

Re: Bug?: Viewer shows disconnected tiles of input image

It might be due to this java bug: http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=8008660 It appears that this bug was never fixed in Java 7, but it is fixed in the pre-release version of java 8. Can you see if it works correctly under java 8? Here's the url: https://jdk8.java.net/download.html

Re: Bug?: Viewer shows disconnected tiles of input image

What version of BSW are you using?

Do you see any exceptions in the log file?

I tried a quick test with your image and script and it worked for me using the latest release (on Windows anyways).

Re: A couple of bugs - maybe

Try quoting the filename and options. like this: CreatePDF = "SEMI Paper.pdf" "Options=Single,Scrolling" The UseTitle option isn't valid, since it is only applicable to 2-up pages. (Also, it appears that the option is in fact "Title" not UseTitle). I'll change the documentation to clarify all of this.

Re: Problem with LRImages

Strange.. The "Save As" should bring up a dialog.. It works for me on both Linux and Windows.

Re: Problem with LRImages

Normally, LoadLRImages will use the timestamps to determine if there is a page missing, and automatically skip it. However, if you have a book where the left pages and right pages were not scanned in sync, you need to use the ignore_times option. So something like: LoadLRImages = ignore_times /path/...
