Oh,this build adds margin to pages although I've set all sides to 0. ?

If these are soft margins (between a solid and a dashed line), then it's expected beheviour. You may want to review the docs or the video tutorial.
Otherwise, post here a screen shot.
Scan Tailor experimental doesn't output 96 DPI images. It's just what your software shows when DPI information is missing. Usually what you get is input DPI times the resolution enhancement factor.

This is my first post here: so, thanks to the creators (and modifiers) of this great program!

When I use the beta versions adapted for Mac (either of the two, provided in links in this thread), I have a problem with "dewarping".

: If I choose the "Auto" dewarping for "all pages" and run the process, the program quits after a while (sometimes even after processing 1 or 2 pages). That does not happen if the dewarp mode is off.

Is this expected behaviour since the dewarp function is "experimental", or is there a way to fix it? Many thanks!

It's definitely not expected.
Mac OS X logs program crashes by itself. You should be able to access those with the Log Viewer (or whatever it's called) utility. If you can post Scan Tailor's crash log here, that would be helpful.

P.S: I think the utility is called just "Console".

Thanks Tulon,
Here is a (quite long) crash report by Console; the most recent one.

I see where the problem is. It shouldn't be hard to solve, but I may require someone to build a few OSX builds and for you to try them out.

I committed an attempt to fix derivian's crash. Can someone build the latest Git version for OSX for derivian to try?

Thank you so much Tulon!!!
I hope the problem is not too specific to my computer; I would gladly try any new build...
