Hi All

I just had a book rejected because it had pictures. I didn't know they were there of course, but according to the message I recieved, in web view they show up. I did delete some as I wentalong when it was at the top of the page or the bottom and I encountered them as I was working on headers or page numbers. I knew some objects were in the book because when I opened it each time to scan more pages, it would open in Word and say that the document has such and such number of objects. I have some questions related to all of this that perhaps some of you can help with.

I know that the last two books I've scanned and submitted were the same. They also had "objects" in them. Both of those books were approved. So that makes me wonder if the other proofers deleted the pictures or whatever the objects were before submitting for admin approval or were they just passed. Anyway that leads me to my next thought and that is why this proofer didn't delete them or maybe the proofer is totally blind like me and didn't know they were there. So is there any way for those of us who can't see where the pictures are (unless our cursor happens to fall on one) able to find the objects and get rid of them?

Also, if there are pictures there, why can't the book be saved and a daisy with pictures and them the pictures deleted and saved as a daisy without pictures. If books with the pictures are saved then a copy is made without pictures, isn't there someway the pictures are stripped in which case can that be done with the books that those of us submit who don't know the pictures are there. The suggestion by the bookshare team was for me to rescan the book with no pictures checked and resubmit. I looked through Open Book and don't see anywhere that I can check not to have pictures scan. I'm curious also because I thought when you saved a book as a text or RTF file most attributes were lost. why does it retain the pictures?

As you can see, I'm full of questions. If this is too much and you want to contact me off list, that's fine.
