Re: Error message - Can't open the file

Same problem here once I loaded 314.
Yes # in Folder name.
Opening within Editor with no error.
Noticed it on a thumb drive.
Didn't notice it with files from hard disk (yet)

Took thumb drive to my other machine which is pre 314. Opens fine.

Scan not quite 100% size

I have this hard copy form with vertically spaced table rows. They are made to match index tabs in a book. Plan was to scan in the master, Typewriter in the verbiage and print out. Once I do this the filled in form no longer aligns to the book tabs. Not much but slightly undersized. it's probably al...

Just an atta boy

Recently had a need to use the Manual Duplex Reverse feature in scanning. Works like a charm.

I know it's a feature that's been around for a while but nice to know it was already there when I needed it.

Log in your Tracker account. Go to "Your Products & Serial Numbers" tab. There should be an option to convert to the new SN scheme. It will be like 40 thousand characters long ( :twisted: ).

Re: How to delete (not just clear) sections of a document?

> every element on a PDF is located by a coordinate and has no 'knowledge' of any other element in the file.

...which makes it sooooo easy to write code to edit a PDF where the user "sees" and wants to act on groups, blocks, paragraphs, sentences, etc.

Yea, right... :-(

I know there are a couple of ways to combine PDF's, pages, etc. using thumbnail drag and drop or Combine Files into Single PDF.

Automatically OCR's Scanned Files

Hopefully an easy one with an option change but I could not find it. I'm running 3.0.306.0 under Win 7. Somewhere in one of the past couple of builds I now notice when I scan a doc it automatically OCR's it. Not necessary from my POV. Maybe OCR'ing docs all the time before saving has some benefit? T...

Unfortunately I have never been able to edit text very well with the Editor V3 Build 301.0. Different strange things happen with the text.

Re: OCR produces blank pages

PDFXVE3.exe File Version: 3.0.300.0

No hurry. I'll hang out for 301 and see what happens. Address it then. Since I saw no other one posting about it, just assumed it was something with setup/configure on my end.
