I've had it happen - but very rarely & not in a long time - clearing the cache fixed it IIRC

odd it's happening to some & not others . .

1) funny I just did exactly the same scan again (rectangular card, at an angle - needed an angle of -4 to correct skew) and auto-detect skew didnt work this time . . no idea why - instead of the required -4° rotation, it rotates image by 0.0999999999999943° (!)
same scan again and it worked this time undecided - an hourglass would definitely help though - I have clicked it and nothing has happened (could be my keyboard's fault of course, at times I find I have to be assertive with it)

with select foreground & remove background selected a selection box snaps to one corner of the scanned card

Background removal -
I cant get this to work - scanning dark image on white (paper) background - it could be the fact it's paper - it's texture does get scanned which probably makes it difficult to remove - will try with a sheet of photo paper later

the new system lets you tweak the tolerance interactively; its that number down on the scanning toolbar.
as you change that now, youll see the selection box try to pick out the foreground.  try values around 140 or so.
A problem with Background removal:

it doesnt seem to work if the image is skewed
it doesnt seem to work then if the image is rotated and the image 'frame' is skewed
i.e. it requires a non-skewed image in a non-skewed frame to work properly

morning smiley

Rotation tool is working very well
-
only thing (very minor) is it can take a while to make the rotation if you choose 'Auto-detect' - might be a good idea to show an hour glass/waiting symbol ?

I was able to narrow down the scanning area - I presume in the 'Scan specific area' that the 'Left' & 'Top' boxes create a margin that isnt scanned? Worked here anyways thumbs up

I can't test the background remover because I have light background but have two thin strips of dark either side
i might be able to add ability to specify custom scan area/margins, which take care of situations like yours.

or I could get a bigger piece of paper for the background lol
seriously though, that could be helpful - I'm thinking of reducing the scanning area to A4 cause I rarely if ever scan more than that, and the full area of the glass doesnt get scanned anyways

Colour working  thumbs up

I can't test the background remover because I have light background but have two thin strips of dark either side (I using white page to create light background & it doesnt fill the scan area)

Auto-straighten image works very nicely Thmbsup

Is there any way to cancel after starting a scan ?
Is there an option to revert to last saved version of file ? Menu > File > Discard all Changes . .

Probably not what you need, but just for the case have a look at OpenStreetMap.
anyone know anything about their export options ?

sounds like both could be vector applications or at least could be used to produce usable vector drawings . .

scanner bed color -- can't think why you wouldnt be able to change that.. but if you have it set to auto detect, it may keep reverting each scan.
removal of background color depends on scan bed color and tolerance, so play with those.
I hadnt realised 'Bed colour from Corner' meant Auto-detect . . so it's changeable now with that deselected

Are you going to give the option to preview - personally I wouldnt use it much but, if for example you want to do a very hi-res scan of a small area, it can save a lot of time

Re Scanner:

I used default interface (WIA) and it found my old Benq S2W no problem

  • I set it to 'colour' - the scan was greyscale
  • I'm sure I was able to change the 'scanner bed colour' once but it has reverted to black & I'm unable to change it again
  • Removal of background colour didnt work
  • Did read at the correct DPI which I had also changed
  • I changed format to PNG which worked fine

Hi Mouser,

I just installed the beta version (2.60.01) and all my new screen shots are coming out just black, here is an exmaple:
 (see attachment in previous post)
I've stopped and restarted SC, but no joy!
Sad
 . . it's working fine here with or without scanner features enabled . .

google map buddy sounds nice,
but if you want to make a quality map, I dont know of any software where you dont have to draw/trace everything and god help you if you want to add contours lol

Roads/streets - if you make the roadline say 3mm, clone the line and make the top line thinner, say 2mm. With lower line black, the upper white, you have an 'outlined' road - gets tricky at junctions so move the white lines into a higher layer so as they always show over the black (using any vector drawing programme)

I think it doesnt search the full C drive by default (thankfully!)

have you had a look in options?

Under Lists > Search Folders
right-click and select 'Add New Entry' and then browse to drive/directory of choice

I would be very happy to see this.
I was looking a while back for a very simple scanning utility and could not find one even that I was happy with:-

what I would like to see would be:-

1) that you could save default settings for the scan (300dpi colour/whatever) -  then just have to click scan or preview when you start the programme.
2) that the scan would show on screen at pre-chosen 'standard' size (usually shown as tiny image for some reason)
3) that scan can be easily opened in external editor -
[or maybe even sent to external editor (TWAIN?) - but that wouldnt be an important capability]

1 you've probably thought of and 2 & 3 are probably already covered (I've been using Minicap with FARR courtesy of Tuck for so long I've forgotten what SC does!)

so yes, a big vote for this cheesy

Mmm, I do not like the windows key as it is being used by other programs I'm running.

try it out - see do you have problems with those programmes - I use windows key for lots of programmes but always with a qualifier key and havent had any problems with this script
-
otherwise post request in that thread or do a bit of research yourself and try changing the key in the script (read that thread though - original key was control, I tried changing that but was unsuccesfull)

Done Grin (courtesy Skrommel)

but it's called Draglock and uses the windows key -

Run the script (or exe)
click the left mouse button, then press Winkey and drag and it goes in the x or y axis.

does Cyber Search allow the first result to be launched if you press return without actively selecting it (a la FARR) ?

I know there is another extension that does that but I dont know name of it or if it works with v.3.5

Not sure how many people have 'booked' copies though. I have booked 2 copies of Pro but I may change my mind before October

does that mean you dont have to pay till october ? and have the option to cancel ?
(I'm still indecisive about the english version myself . . )

well I dont know how long the windows 7 offer lasted here in germany - but certainly less than 17 hours Wink
I forgot about it (I think they were all in deutsch though and the UK offer seems to be still running)

Yes, I've got to find the factory default password first. Or was it blank?
in case you cant find it I came across this page yesterday related to routers & skype
Your router is here:-
http://www.portforward.co...Linksys/WRT54GL/Skype.htm
if you scroll down a page or so it says
Quote
By default the username is blank, and the password is admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.
dont know if that's dependable - sounds odd - no user name but a password, maybe it should be the other way round undecided
