"Odd" output

Post by Ryan_phx » 14 Apr 2011, 03:25

I've been using BSW mostly just for dekeystoning, so I haven't been doing anything particularly complicated with it. I was using the old version (don't remember the version #, but I've been using it for a couple of months) until the other day, when I decided to use the webstarter to install the new version. Everything installed normally, but now, whenever I try to process a book, BSW only outputs the odd-numbered pages, which for some reason are the right-side pages. So I'm getting BSW_0001.tif, BSW_0003.tif, etc.--all of which are right-side pages. In the window, I'm seeing previews of both left and right pages, so I'm at a loss. Here's the script (btw, all of the original pages are in a single directory, in this case "Harris"):
# Book Scan Wizard Script
# http://bookscanwizard.sourceforge.net
# N:\


# the source directory, with subdirectories for left & right files
LoadImages = N:\Harris

# The Destination directory
SetDestination = N:\Harris\output

# Sets the final DPI and compression
SetTiffOptions = 600 NONE

# Configure the left pages
Pages = left
Rotate = -90

# Configure the right pages
Pages = right
Rotate = 90

########################################################################
Pages = left
Perspective = 680,290, 2323,369, 2336,2460, 680,2488

Pages = right
Perspective = 597,397, 2261,281, 2313,2770, 631,2751

########################################################################
I'm not doing anything different than I used to--why am I only getting half of the pages? I should add that I'm not getting any error messages, either.

It looks like there's a bug... If you add the following line to the end of your configuration it should work around the problem:

Pages = all
