For Users upgrading from version 7.6 or earlier
If you have upgraded from version 7.6 or earlier, you will see the following changes in the
scanning features in Sohodox:
Current Scan Settings Summary
A summary of the current scan settings is displayed below the Scan Profile drop-down. So when
you choose a profile, you can see a quick summary of the scan settings stored in the selected
profile. If after you select a profile, you make some changes to any of the scan settings, then the
summary will be updated to show the changed settings.
You can now automatically despeckle scanned images during the scanning process
A new option has been added to automatically despeckle the scanned image during the
scanning process. When you select this option before scanning a document, it will remove noise
(tiny black spots) from the scanned image.
Virtual Duplex Scanning mode
Sohodox can handle duplex scanning even if your scanner does not have built-in support for
DPI settings are now adjusted depending on the scanner
Prior to version 7.6, Sohodox used to support a fixed set pf DPIs (150, 200, 300) for all types of
scanners. Now the DPI will be shown depending on the scanner. If your scanner supports 600
dpi, you can scan the document using this DPI.
Better quality Black and White scanning
The quality of Black and White scanned images is now better than in the previous versions.
Scan Preview window offers 2 view options
The Scan Preview window now allows you to select a Page view (each scanned page displayed
as a single thumbnail) or Document view (each scanned multi-page document displayed as
single thumbnail) of the scanned documents.
Separator pages (Blank page or Barcode) now made clearly visible in the Scan Preview
Separator pages (Blank page or Barcode) are now displayed in the Scan Preview window so you
can see if a non-separator page has been wrongly detected as a separator page.
Reverse of scanned documents now made identifiable
When documents are duplex scanned, the Scan Preview window makes it easy to differentiate
between the front and reverse of the document. It displays the reverse of the page with this
icon at the bottom left of the page preview.
Some scan settings can now be changed after pages have been scanned
You can now now choose the file format in which to save scanned documents even after you
have scanned your documents. Based on the file format you choose you can also specify if you
wanted the documents to be saved as single page document or multi-page documents.
If you have scanned 4 pages and selected the format as JPEG then Sohodox will create 4
different documents of one page each. But if you choose PDF or TIFF, you choose to save all 4
pages as a single multi-page file. When you change file format settings (or single/multi-page
settings), Sohodox will rearrange the documents in the preview pane so it is easy to see how the
pages will be saved.
