PaperPort includes two buttons to help you straighten pages or images that were scanned into your computer at a skewed angle. You can use:
Auto-Straighten to let PaperPort analyze and automatically straighten images for you
Straighten to manually straighten any image item that you display in the Image View window
You can also use Auto Straighten in a scan profile.
To automatically straighten image items
Select one or more image items on the PaperPort desktop then choose Auto-Straighten on the Item ribbon,
— or —
Display an image item in the Image View window, and then choose Auto-Straighten on the Page ribbon.
To manually straighten image items
Display the image item in the Image View window.
On the Page ribbon, choose Straighten.
The pointer changes to a drawing tool when you move it over the image. Hold down the mouse button and draw a line along an edge that should be horizontal or vertical. When you release the mouse button, PaperPort uses the line as a guide to straighten the item.
Auto-straighten works best on images containing lines of text or pictures with clear borders. Auto-straighten removes annotations; use the following procedure to preserve them.
Choose Select All in the Annotations group on the Edit ribbon then click Cut in the Clipboard group. This temporarily removes annotations so you can safely auto-straighten the page.
Finally on the Edit ribbon, click Paste in the Clipboard group to put the annotations back on the page.
To automatically straighten all images scanned by a scan profile
On the Scan or Get Photo pane, select a scan profile that should contain the straightening feature.
Click Settings and the SET tab.
On the SET panel, turn on Auto-straighten. Then click OK.
Be sure your setting is suitable for all pages you plan to scan with this profile.
