When I first found scantailor -introduced to me here by this site, thanks- back in 2013-14 I believe it was, there was no doubt that this awesome piece of software reduced my time spent creating my manuals. I did donate back then, but was sorry to see that development had stopped.
It's good to see that you're working on it again from time to time.
I know this thread is old, but it seems there's still life in here
I found some inconveniences in the newer version, and I have some feature requests, should you ever want to take them up
I'll gladly send a donation your way (again) regardless as you've actually kept my work going. If you have a paypal account please send me a PM with it then.
my feature request is as follows
Mark the talest and widest page
and/or mark page for max range.
* sometimes pages get modified using margin, contents or whatever, and sometimes the content pages are larger than the frontpage, which should be the largest in both height/width, so adding a colour or whatnot to the largest and one for the widest would help a lot looking for those pages, sometimes multiple pages are larger than the cover so the list needs looking through several times.
a Max limit could be useful
min size of contents so pagenumbers don't get excluded
Most of the times I have to manually adjust the content box as the automatic ignores page numbers when they're too far from the contents.
Setting a minimum size box could be useful here
ignore an area when doing autocontent box
scanning books with spiral spines, creates a row of holes, which are black when scanning B/W.
these holes gets added to the automatic content box. it would be really nice to exclude such an area before
running that part. of course it should apply to every other page as odd pages have the holes in the left side, and even
pages have them in the right side.
fix black'n'white cropping
when outputting inverted text, chapter pages, what is supposed to be a black box gets "equalized" even though that feature isn't checked
export to G4 compression rather than LZW for B/W
this is rather self explanatory. everything gets output as LZW, but using G4 fax compression / CCIT.6 or what it's called would reduce filesize to a 1/3.
margin = mm rather than %
the new % is somewhat confusing, and I miss the old scale in mm.
output is in 96dpi
output is in 96dpi, and you cannot choose a custom resolution as you used to. please bring back the different dpi settings again.
fill zones, picture zones, resolution etc could be moved to a step between margin and output so one wouldn't have to wait for an image to be output before you can change these settings.
crash - (maybe fixed?)
I don't know if you've fixed this, but there used to be a nasty bug which made the application crash hard when outputting pages. It mostly happens whith manually content adjusted pages. The workaround was to adjust the selection a single pixel.
If it happens again, I'll save the whole project for you to test.
once again, thanks for making my work a lot easier
