I am trying to make E-books by scanning hard copy books. I have Abbyy FineReader 9.0 OCR software and am using a typical flatbed scanner.
The problem I have is that of page cropping/size. Please see the example I have just uploaded and linked to, below, produced using FineReader, to see what I mean (I tried to attach it to this thread, but the forum software would not let me. Has this function been disabled?). The PDF page is much larger than the area of text/book page. I have no idea how to crop this PDF page to make it the ideal size (I would have thought this would be done automatically).
I have Googled for an answer, and looked through the user’s guide, but found no help. FineReader only has an image crop function, that I can see.
I will also, at the end of all the scanning, need to connect all of the PDFs to form the finished E-book. I do not know how to do that, also.
Example pages (two pages split automatically. At least I found out how to work the split page function):
Edit: OK, so the attachment function does work, after all!
Funny how people insist that death, murder, torture has to be a part of ones dietary needs.....fucking nutters everywhere!!
