Remove automatically created picture zones in scantailor

Post by sidney » 20 Feb 2013, 05:59

Scantailor sometimes recognizes by mistake some text fragments as pictures in mixed mode (and creates a picture zone). Is there a way to remove this picture zones manually?

Go to the picture zone tab.
Draw a box around what you want to remove from the autolayer.
RIght click, select properties, then tell it to remove from autolayer.

(After doing that once, it becomes the default for drawing a new box, so if you need to add an area, you will need to switch it back)
