crop and straighten book scans using ActionsXXL not working properly

Postby Johannes.Krause » Thu May 17, 2018 10:39 am

Hi, I'm using ActionsXXL with PSE 2018/16.0, running on Win7.

My primary goal is to automatically crop large numbers of images in the process of book scanning.
Unfortunately, when using batch processing, during the user dialog on the individual image file, the crop tool does not respond to mouse commands. Therefore I'm merely able to move the crop pattern by keyboard, which is almost useless to me, as long as I cannot turn it.

As a workaround I also tried to use the straighten tool/level, which would allow to automatically fill the edges -- in my case, black paper background. Sadly again, ActionsXXL does not recognise this action by recording it. When I'm using the straighten tool, there isn't any new entry in my action while the red recording button is active.

Is anyone else experiencing these problems -- or is there any workaround to this? Anything would be of great help. Thanks!
