Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

Hi Tulon,

Sometimes, when i quickly jump between stages 2 and 4, or 2 and 6 whilst i make fine tune adjustments, STexp will crash.

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

Thank you Tulon. I'm glad you are back. I had thought ST was discarded by new owner. I wish to ask if it is possible at all in the "Margin" stage to program the following. I'm not a programmer so don't know the difficulty involved but will ask in any case. The "select content" stage will have automa...

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

Some feedback. I processed a scanned book 179 pages. I processed it twice - ST9.11.164bit and STexp latest by Tulon. ... scanned pages pixel specs = 1548 x 2484 vs 1049 x 1667 ... Output process speed = 187 seconds vs 49 seconds What is "scanned pages pixel specs"? Is that the output image size? If...

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

i just encountered the same problem as Shinomura.

if a page only has small bit of text. e.g. "i dedicate this book to my wife and children"

STexperimental will select the content. However in the output stage it is a white page.

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

Most of the changes in the new version have to do with OpenCL support (check the Settings dialog). Don't expect any miracles from it though. I have GTX gamer card and just checked the settings - changed to use my GTX rather than default onboard graphics. All i can say is WOW!! I heavily use 9.11.1 ...

Re: Scan Tailor "Experimental"

It works well however I am not sure if it is just me but the "Page Layout" section when selecting "apply to all pages" does not seem to work or take effect. That was indeed a bug. I fixed it and made a new release . Most of the changes in the new version have to do with OpenCL support (check the Se...
