Hi Monica, Sorry to hear about the problems with my scans. I was about to say that nothing changed at the office 3-4 months ago, but I'm not sure that's true. I started using version 8 of Finereader instead of version 7 several months ago, but I'd guess it's 6 months or so. I wonder if that's what has caused the difference. If you give me the name of a book with the problem, I'll run the .tif file through Finereader 7 and see if I can spot any differences in the output between the 2 versions of Finereader. Or I can find a short book at the office and run a check myself. Will let you know what I find out. Maybe I will have to go back to using Finereader 7... Sorry!

When I get the rtf file, it has section breaks as always. However, when I use the find and replace feature and replace ^b with ^m it makes 2 page breaks for every section break that used to be there, and column breaks start showing up where there were none before I do this replacement. This only happens with Carrie's recent scans. I tried an older scan done by Carrie, and it worked perfectly. This didn't start happening till about 2 or 3 months ago. Before that, this find and replace thing worked just fine, and I validated 30 or 40 of Carrie's books. Does anyone know what I'm dealing with and what I can do to fix it? I haven't applied any updates to Office XP. Am I doing something wrong and just don't know it? Once I change the section breaks to page breaks, sometimes the page number and header will have a page break above it and then right below it so that a book of 500 pages ends up being over 900 pages with these breaks. I am seriously stumped. Can any of you help?
