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!   Carrie

  Hi. I'm writing to ask for help. Lately when I take one of Carrie's 
scans, I keep running into the same problem. 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?
