Anamardoll--you are fabulous! thank you for your quick response. You have made this all suddenly "make sense" and simplified the process steps so well, I finally feel like I can "do" this and digitize my work-library efficiently. I can learn new tricks every once in a while but sometimes the steps seem sooo complicated.
(plus gives me ideas for my pdf'd theses, etc.)
I was planning on doing this as you mentioned, but cannot afford a monthy membership for a one-month deal. I can wait for the documents without a problem (do the fine-tuning wherever in the world i roam).
Have you noticed any pages misscanned or missing? seems they charge $2 extra per "book unit) for "insurance" now--keeping everything until you check it which makes it rather spendy if I want to guarantee the scan is complete.
As for ABBY and Sigil, etc. I am waiting for a sale--I have patience (sort of
) and time.
I am just excited to get the (not so valuable) books in storage back where I can use them effectively! My bookshelf-books are a different story, of course.
