[bksvol-discuss] Re: Extra pages in a book.

Yeah, Mayrie, you're right. I forgot that Bookshare takes those blank lines out. I always put every book I scan or validate into my library, though, so I would have to do it myself anyway. So I tend to forget that it really isn't necessary for Bookshare books.

Hi Caitlyn,

Yes, you are right about that leaving a bunch of blank lines.  But in this
instance, we can be thankful for Bookshare's tools and the infamous stripper
in particular.  Once you upload your validated book, the Bookshare tools,
while converting the file to daisy format will take out all extra blank
lines.  So, you won't have to do it.

Umm.. Wouldn't that just leave the text of the page previous to the one you
are on, then a bunch of blank lines until the next page break?

Caitlyn, who might not be thinking clearly because of migraine meds

Deleting page breaks in K1000 is easy. Just hit control shift enter, and the

page you're on is merged with the page above. In other words, control shift
enter deletes the page break above where you are.

Hi Mayrie.

Yes, you were very clear, and thanks.

I'm not a good scanner--if I want to ruin a book I scan it <smile>.
So,
your
suggestion about columns makes sense.

I have done what you suggested about doing a find for ^m in msword and
it
is
progressing ok. I would prefer to make the changes in Kurzweil but I can't
figure out a way to delete a page break when it shouldn't be there.

Thanks.
Bob

Hi Bob,

This double pages thing could have happened if the book had collumns,
but the scanner told the recognition settings to recognize two pages
per scan instead of one.  Then the OCR program would have seen two
collumns on a page as two pages of text and put a page break where
there shouldn't have been one.

I don't know how quick it would be, but the only way I can see to get
rid of every other page is to do a find (not a find and replace) for
the page break symbol. That symbol in word is ^m and in K1000 is\p
you could then use control f to find the first occurrence of a page
break, decide whether that one should stay or delete it, then use F3
to find the next occurrence in either program and skip the page
breaks that you want to keep
and delete those that need to go bye-bye.  Not terribly quick, but would
work.

Let me know if I've been unclear.

Mayrie

Subject: [bksvol-discuss] Extra pages in a book.

Hello all.
I am validating Logics of Dissentegration PostStructuralist Thought
and the claims of Critical Theory. Not a book I'd like to read from
cover to cover.
However, though it is a pretty good scan it has about twice as many pages
as
it needs. In toher words, the book ends on (I don't remember the exact
numbers) but, say, about 400 pages, while Kurzweil and word report about
800
pages.

It appears that the person who scanned it got two pages for every
page scanned.

Okay, my questions are:
Has anyone seen this sort of thing before?
How can you get two pages for every physical page?
and: does anyone know of a quick and dirty method of going through a
document eliminating every other page break?

I have Kurzweil and MsWord 2003 to work with this file.

I am going out of my ever loving mind with boredom and am not on page
100 yet.

Any ideas would be appreciated before they come take me away to the
nut house.

Bob
