Re: ANNOUNCEMENT: Scan Tailor Command Line Interface

pejuko,

Again, awesome software. Another question though... I'm successfully running scantailor-cli.exe 350 times (once per image), but some pages are auto-detected as just the title of the work (e.g. instead of 8.5" x 11" the image is 3" by 2" saying 'CHAPTER 1'), so ABBYY mistakenly sees the page as landscape instead of portrait. How can I force scantailor-cli.exe to make all images use the same final dimensions? Do I need to use the img img img syntax instead?

Thanks!

I'm kind of bussy last days. I'll try to release new enhanced version at weekend.

Current version of ScanTailor computes page size acording to the largest detected content and sets the same size for all loaded pages. If you process pages one by one then each page can have different size. To keep same size for all pages you should process all pages at once with syntax scantailor-cli.exe img1 img2... outdir. Seems that standard windows command line does not expand patterns in filenames and you have to write them all by hand or generate such commands using some script. so if you want to work in windows from command line I would recommend to install bash for windows (eg: msys mingw shell) and then you can run easily: scantailor-cli.exe -v *.tif outdir

I'm using scantailor-cli.exe 32bit Version: 0.9.11.1 and the --dewarping option doesn't work. It produces the same output image when I have --dewarping=auto and --dewarping=off .
Dewarping does work when using the GUI though. What is the problem and how can I resolve it?

Also, why can't I create a thread under this forum?
