Problem with LRImages

Post by DanE » 31 Dec 2013, 05:10

On my second book, I'm now having a problem with LRImages after having zero problems with the first one.

In the left folder I have files running from IMG_0796 to IMG_0988 with a few skipped numbers. In the r folder I have IMG_0490 to IMG_0681.

In the preview, BSW is ignoring some of the page images. for example in the l folder I have IMG_0864, IMG_0865 and IMG_0866, but in the preview the left had pages skip from IMG_0864 to IMG_0866. The same thing is going on in the r folder. The end result is that the book is not complete and the pages are all out of order.

What am I missing?

Thanks,
Dan

Normally, LoadLRImages will use the timestamps to determine if there is a page missing, and automatically skip it. However, if you have a book where the left pages and right pages were not scanned in sync, you need to use the ignore_times option.

So something like:

LoadLRImages = ignore_times /path/to/images

That seems to have solved the problem.

btw - there are Save and Save as... options on the File menu but neither offers a field to supply a file name. What are these options for and how might one use them?

Thanks,
Dan

Strange.. The "Save As" should bring up a dialog.. It works for me on both Linux and Windows.

You're right. On windows it brings up the expected dialog. On the Mac it brings up a dialog that does not include the text box for the file name. It only has the folder browser and folder contents list. Very strange.

I was working on the Mac at the time.
