 ===== Installation ===== ===== Installation =====
-The program has been written for and tested on a Microsoft Windows XP system with the script language [[http://​www.autoitscript.com/​autoit3/​|autoit3]]. In order to function it needs to cooperate with a few other applications,​ which need to be installed as well. Apart from Neuratron, these are Ghostscript and ImageMagick. It uses Neuratron Photoscore for automatic page rotation and cleaning up pages. Because Photoscore can only save one processed page as tiff file per time, this script controls Neuratron in such a manner that it sends specific keyboard and mouse commands to Photoscore, mimicking the clicking behaviour to iterate through the rest of the pages and save them.\\ \\ NB 1. If you decide to download and install Ghostscript separately from Neuratron Photoscore, you can, while you install Neuratron Photoscore, ignore any further message about installing Ghostscript. It's not necessary to install it twice.\\ NB 2. Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 should be installed due to incompatibility issues with the script.\\ NB 3. During installation of ImageMagick you have to enable manually the option "​Install ImageMagickObject:​ OLE Control for VBscript, Visual Basic, and WSH."​\\ \\ Download and install following files: +The program has been written for and tested on a Microsoft Windows XP system with the script language [[https://​www.autoitscript.com/​autoit3/​|autoit3]].

-{{http://​www.auditeon.com/​xyz/​projects/​musicPDFrawscan.jpg?​300x300 |Page scanning optimizations}} In order to get the best and fastest results, after you have scanned your pages, roughly crop your pages in such a way that a narrow border will remain around your pages. Because this involves manual work, the fastest solution I found so far for cropping and preparing pages, is using Abbyy FineReader (Professional).\\ \\ In the edit mode in FineReader, select the crop item.\\ Draw a rectangle around your sheetmusic keeping a narrow border left and right from the staves. The rectangle should be at least large enough to contain music on the largest page.\\ If not there, go to the first page. Move the rectangle in such a way that it is equally around the staves (Make sure the option to advance to the next page automatically is selected). Press the keyboard shortcut Alt+A. Do the same for each successive page. Your speed could be about 1 page per 2 seconds.+{{https://​www.auditeon.com/​xyz/​projects/​musicPDFrawscan.jpg?​300x300 |Page scanning optimizations}} In order to get the best and fastest results, after you have scanned your pages, roughly crop your pages in such a way that a narrow border will remain around your pages.
