Re: build 327.0 text rendering

I did not make screenshots or even note which files I was looking at as I normally do. I was overwhelmed with work when they came in.

Re: Enhance Scanned Pages

The Transform works brilliantly but it sure is time consuming as it has to be done page by page AFAIK. The Enhanced Scanned Pages feature could be so, so useful if it could deskew pages in a pdf like the Transform feature (ie no file size increase).
