add section

7.1.1 Windows 8

It is now possible to install BSC-2® on Microsoft’s operating system Windows 8.

7.1.2 Language support

Language support for Russian and Spanish user interfaces was updated and improved.

7.1.3 WebPublisher

BSC-2® now includes a default template for testing the WebPublisher that can be imported via Extras->Web publisher settings. The template file, which can be adjusted individually after the import, is called iwcwww_std_v01_lokal.bin and can be found in the BSC-2® data folder.

7.1.4 ICC profiles

ICC profiles can now also be attached to / detached from complete scan orders. Scan orders can be selected through the scan order list. The corresponding action can be selected from the context menu (right click within the order list). ICC profiles can also be attached/detached using the background module.

7.1.5 System settings

It is now possible to deactivate the improved refresh of the user interface which is activated by default. This option is needed to constantly refresh the user interface during operations that use a progress bar. In some cases this may lead to performance issues in BCS-2® when using the Start at scanner operating mode for Bookeye® devices. In this case the option should be deactivated.

7.1.6 Start at Scanner

If you are experiencing issues with starting, transferring or re-scanning a scan order while using the Start at scanner mode, please deactivate the improved refresh of the user interface within the system settings. If this doesn’t solve the problem, please change the operating mode to Start with program. As a workaround solution we recommend to use an USB foot switch that is directly connected to the PC.

7.1.7 Bookfold Correction Settings for Bookeye® devices

The Bookfold correction settings in the Scanner menu have been omitted. The threshold may still be configured in the settings for the Search area for auto-format within the Network scanner settings.

7.1.8 Thumb Removal Settings for Bookeye® Devices

The new mode Bookfan allows an improved cropping of the actual text area. It can be activated via Scanner->Thumb removal settings. Best results are achieved when the Bookeye® scanner is set to Bookfold mode (instead of Flat, V-mode or Auto).
