[bksvol-discuss] Re: Page Number Problem

In that case I am almost certain of what the problem is. If page 117 begins a chapter then page 116 is a blank page. Like I said, blank pages are almost always just that, blank, and there is not even a page number. And also like I said, it is not uncommon at all that when I am scanning in two page mode and come across a blank page the two pages are scanned as one page thus effectively skipping the blank page. If you have contacted the submitter you might want to wait for a reply, but I am pretty confident that all you have to do is to insert a blank page 116.

It does indeed begin a chapter.  I have found other places in the book just
like this.  The scanner is checking with his friend who has the book.

Here is another important question. Does page 117 begin a chapter or
some kind of section. If it does then it is likely that page 116 was a
blank page. If the narrative just continues from page 115 to page 117
without any kind of natural division then it is quite unlikely that page
116 was blank. It might have contained an illustration of some kind,
though, that did not scan. Are there other pages in the book where
pictures fill a page? If so then that might be what is on page 116.

Hi Lisa,

 From a scanner's perspective, there are a couple of things to check:

1.  Does Page 117 mesh well with 115?  Is the page number on the page
that identifies itself as file page 117  the same, or does it say
116?  If so, delete the blank page so the numbers are correct.  If it
says Page 117, go further.

2.  Check several lines on the page that follows the blank page. Does
it all make sense?  Sometimes, two pages in a book mesh themselves
into one. When this happens, there is a blank page, followed by a very
long page that incorporates both pages of the scan, interleaved so
they make little sense. You can check this by reading the page.  Are
there spots where the story thread seems to go along, then to break
off into something else for a line or two?  In this case, get whoever
scanned the book (e-mail is in the book's history) to rescan that page
and send it to you.  Then you can insert it and delete both the blank
page and the bad one.

The best way to judge whether the blank page is in the book is to 1)
check the page numbers written in the book, not the page number
announced by the file, or 2) have the scanner, or someone else, check
the book quickly to see if Page 116 is blank.

HTH!

Sandi

Hi Fellow Volunteers,

I have a little problem that perhaps one of you can help me with.  I am
proofing a book that skips from page 115 to page 117.  I checked
back, and
no page numbers are missing.  There simply is not a page 116. What do
you
suggest I do?  Should I insert a blank page 116?  That seems like it
would
be altering the text.  This is my first book.

Thanks,
Lisa
