Re: Mac problem - contextual menus cause crash

Even more odd... Compiling in debug mode and using gdb it will still fail. But, if I set a breakpoint and walk through single-step it works. [UPDATE: It did work one time, honest it did :), but this is not repeatable.] So, a possible timing issue? Something with how it is building the actions for th...

Re: Mac problem - contextual menus cause crash

To tell you the truth, I haven't written a single line of code for Scan Tailor in the past few weeks. I just don't feel like it. No problem, Tulon, I will keep looking at it from time to time, who knows, I may uncover the bug. I would be glad to help that way if I can. If I can't, and it lasts long...

Mac problem - contextual menus cause crash

This has been there on all the builds I've done, and I am not quite sure where to look to debug this, so I'm hoping putting it out here might get me a few pointers. It may be related just to zones, like picture and fill zones. The menu in the right pages sidebar to insert before/after seems to work ...

Re: Upcoming 0.9.9.2 release

Would you consider adding the OSX build files I had prepared earlier? It would make things easier for those trying to roll their own osx build. If they need additional work, let me know.

Re: Mac OSX Instructional: Order & Prepare Images for ScanTa

Great notes. Since I don't have a real rig yet, just two cameras on tripods at different focal lengths and a unstable cardboard base with a gorilla glue lexan platen... I need to process my even and odd pages separately because they have different DPIs. So, I have been using "Image Capture Utility" ...

Re: will1384's Book Scanner

It seams like Scan Tailor is over complicated, with JPEGCrops and the batch file under Windows, it takes maybe 10 clicks and running the batch file, and you are done, but yea that's no de-warping, no OCR, no PDF, its just plain images, but they are cropped, renamed, rotated, and two directories mer...

Re: Making the Select Content Box fixed... or disabled?

Just a note for the Mac users who may be interested in trying this . . . Amongst probably many options is the freeware "TextWrangler" editor, the small sibling to the mighty BBEdit. It supports regex in search/replace via the "grep" checkbox in the search dialog.

Re: Canon a480 works with USB remote

I just did some quick test pics with a pair of A480's (in a very shoddy test setup), and had a few blurry pages because the focus wasn't quite on. I wonder about this via CHDK, but I haven't tested it yet. http://www.britishideas.com/2010/06/09/ ... anon-a480/
