[bksvol-discuss] Re: Scanning/editing nightmares

I did replace all the section breaks with page breaks, but there were
unknown section breaks, so there was a lot of deleting afterward, still.
Then there were the hard page breaks in the wrong places, so the right place
had to be found (often mid-paragraph), insert a blank line, add a page
break, add another blank line and a few lines down, remove the wrong one.
It shouldn't be that hard when you tell it to retain page breaks.  

I might try a smaller book in OmniPage or even switch to my Mac.  I FAR
prefer Word 2008 for ease and menus over ribbons.  I do not have FineReader
for Mac, only IRIS, I think.  Not sure what my Epson Perfection 1670 came
with if it had a Mac option I can upgrade or not.

Is Cindy about the only other Mac scanner?  Wonder what people like best on
the Mac.

Thanks for your help, Jackie!

 Valerie

 To unsubscribe from this list send a blank Email to
bksvol-discuss-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
put the word 'unsubscribe' by itself in the subject line.  To get a list of 
available commands, put the word 'help' by itself in the subject line.
