[bksvol-discuss] Re: Contemplating scanning a book.

I tried your suggestion and it didn't seem to have any effect at all,
but while I was trying it -- actually, right after I tried it -- I
noticed a save settings tab that I had previously not noticed. I
clicked it and I think I saved them. I will know for certain only when
I close the program and open it up again.
