An OpenBook question while I wait to get accepted on the Openbook users list


Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

If there are any OpenBook 9 users running Windows 10 Creator Edition, 64 bit; have you had any issues with saving files after scanning?

On my system, I get the nebulous error message that something has stopped Openbook from working and Windows will close the program, etc.

 

I have corresponded with tech support and I tried their repair steps, didn’t work.

I tried their suggestion of uninstalling and reinstalling it into a custom location, still not working.

I did not remove shared components because I thought that would mess up my Jaws installation.

Any thoughts before I have to call tech support on Monday?

 

Thanks,

Richard

Hello Richard,
 
I do not have any idea what is going on with your system but, have you tried naming and saving a file before you start scanning.  OB has been bad about crashing on me for years on many many different computers including Win10 Creator 64 bit.
 
I learned a long time ago to name and save a file before I scanned too many pages.  If it crashes before you save, you loose every thing that you scanned.  Not so good if you have scanned a lot of pages.  And, for me, I have far less crashes if the file has been named.  I definitely do not know why.
 
While this information probably doesn’t help you very much, maybe it will save you a little time.
 
Good luck with tech support Monday.

Thanks James for the suggestion.

Sadly, Openbook blows out even if I try and save a document with a different name before scanning.

It will be interesting to see what tech support says tomorrow.

I wonder if they are giving up development on Openbook.  As far as I know, I’m still on the beta team and nothing has been done in years.

I thought I would check this out; my document saved just fine, but now I cannot find it. I used to go to Open Book on the desk top, hit enter on Open Book, and arrow down to my Open Book documents. Now Open Book opens, and I do not know where my saved Open Book documents are?

Cheers Kevin.

Hi Kevin,
 
Since I don’t have any way of knowing how your OpenBook software is set up.  Or. which version of OB or Windows you are using, I recommend that you give VFO a call in the morning.  They should definitely be able to sort things out. 
 
The best of luck to you,

Until such time as you get the solution figured out, you can access your saved files under the OpenBook document history list.  Unfortunately, I believe this list is only of documents you open, not those that you saved and did not thereafter open.

 

For the opened documents list, go under the file menu, and arrow down.  You will start hearing file names, and the line number is where that file was in order.  Hence, file 1 will be the one last opened. 

 

Hope this helps as a work-around.

Hi Kevin,
 
To find the default location of your saved files trythe the following:
1. Open Openbook, & press, Alt + G, to open Settings.
2. Press the letter, G, to open General Settings, or arrow down to it , & press enter.
3. Tab to, Default File Location, & this will tell you where your files are being saved to.
Take care.  Mike.  Go Dodgers!

How do you sign up for the Open Book users list?


Richard Turner <richardturner42@...>
 

I am not sure it is an active list as I still have heard nothing from it. I went to Freedom Scientific's page and searched for lists and found it. I'll ask tech support when I call them if one exists.

Richard,
It is possible that it is in active list, however, I unsubscribe from about a year ago simply due to their never being any activity. Also, from my recollection, it is a Yahoo-based groups and with some other Yahoo! Groups lately I have had difficulty subscribing to and unsubscribing from using their links.

Hi,
The Openbook users list that has been around for years has not been properly
moderated in several years. No one has been minding the group so no new
members have been added. I, and others that I know, have tried several times
unsuccessfully to join and our attempts have always timed out without anyone
acting on our join requests. However, there is another one that has only
been around for about two years and is on groups.io so it is rather small
and the traffic is light. But at least it accepts members. And when someone
posts there is usually a response.
Openbook+subscribe@groups.io
Is the subscribe address if I am not mistaken.
Hope that helps.

Thanks,
I may give that a try. I know I need to call tech support next, but ran out of time this morning.
I will keep this address handy.
I am about to give up on OpenBook entirely if they cannot fix this issue since there has been little effort to update it.
I will start using the Seeing AI app on my iPhone.
Later,
Richard

Just throwing this out there, but there's a knfbreader app for windows 10. So if anyone's using windows 10 on their computer/laptop might wanna look into it if they're no longer developing openbook especially if you need something for document scanning. I think it costs $100 which is i think cheaper than openbook.

Thanks,
I may give that a try. I know I need to call tech support next, but ran out of time this morning.
I will keep this address handy.
I am about to give up on OpenBook entirely if they cannot fix this issue since there has been little effort to update it.
I will start using the Seeing AI app on my iPhone.
Later,
Richard

Hi,
The Openbook users list that has been around for years has not been properly
moderated in several years. No one has been minding the group so no new
members have been added. I, and others that I know, have tried several times
unsuccessfully to join and our attempts have always timed out without anyone
acting on our join requests. However, there is another one that has only
been around for about two years and is on groups.io so it is rather small
and the traffic is light. But at least it accepts members. And when someone
posts there is usually a response.
Openbook+subscribe@groups.io
Is the subscribe address if I am not mistaken.
Hope that helps.
Merv

I am not sure it is an active list as I still have heard nothing from it. I
went to Freedom Scientific's page and searched for lists and found it. I'll
ask tech support when I call them if one exists.
