Deskewing with PDF-Tools not working

Post by arpy » Fri Feb 26, 2021 12:27 am

Hi,

when I try to deskew PDF-Files with PDF-Tools (enhance scanned pages) and I uncheck every option in enhance scanned pages exept for deskew, the resulting pdf-files are not deskewed. If I add (any) other action (e.g. compressing or OCR) , it works.
Could you please verify, if this can be reproduced and maybe show me a way how I can achieve it?

Hi, arpy

Thank you for the report, To ensure we are testing properly, Could I ask you to please send us a screenshot of your Enhance Scanned pages dialog?
Beyond that, please also confirm that you are indeed running the latest version of the software (9.0.352.0), which can be checked in PDF-tools by clicking help > about.

Hi Daniel,

Version 9.0.352.0.

In PDF-Tools, I clone the "Enhance Scanned Pages" Tool an Modify the options to only deskew the file:

The Output file is not deskewed.

The output file is only deskewed, if I also enable OCR. (Even, even when all other options but OCR are enabled, it does not deskew the file:

Any advice?

Hello arpy,

I've asked our devs for a clarification how those settings are supposed to work, and whether the Deskey is only to work with OCR or on it's own as well, and as soon as I have their feedback I will post it here!

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hello,

maybe you can advice how to (only) deskew pages automatically? Is there another way to do it?

Hello arpy,

Our devs managed to reproduce the issue, and asked me to create a ticket in our internal system for it:
#5511: PDF Tools: Impossible to Deskew without OCR

So it can now be assigned to a colleague to work on and as soon as there is any further information in the ticket - we will let you know.

Kind regards,
Stefan

Hi arpy.

We will fix it in the next build for sure.
The temporary workaround - just add the ChangeDocProps action after the EnhanceScannedPages:
