2.5 Conversion to “Start on the device” – Changed behavior with Bookeye scanners
add section

If “Start-on-Device” is active and you want to initiate an image, navigation, C3Plus or OCR operation, the:

  • the scan loop is aborted,
  • BCS-2 displays a pop-up window with which the scan loop can be restarted.

If you find this irritating, we recommend switching to “Start by Program” and using an external foot switch or a corresponding keyboard.

2.6 Scanner Settings Dialog
add section

Equipping the dialog with tabs: The most important settings are now subsumed in the “Basic Settings” tab. All others are located in the “Special Settings” tab. This makes the dialog clearer and the most important settings are manageable at a glance.

2.7 Job List: Thumbnail Preview
add section

The display of the thumbnails for the selected job in the job list can be switched via the menu. Background: Jobs with many images delay the display of the thumbnails. Optionally, the display of the thumbnails is now completely suppressable. The setting stores BCS-2 persistently, i.e. it is retained the next time the program is started.

2.8 Troubleshooting Viewer Issues
add section

Elimination of various problems and discrepancies regarding the “Image Viewer”:

  • Division of the module into two submodules
  • Removal of the black pixel line on the right edge
  • Troubleshoot scrolling issues

Problem with zooming in the viewer to the right in certain situations:

This is not a bug: This is caused by toolbar entries, which become significantly longer due to the display of texts, e.g. when using information panels for MyBib eDoc or for OCR.

The window must then be enlarged to the right, otherwise the text will not be readable. Remedy:

  • Other toolbar configuration
  • Move information panels to your own toolbars
