Thank you for the report I'll add a note to the manual.

Edit: I'm a bit confused. https://hol.abime.net/2937/miscshot doesn't have a manual.

You're right, I thought I had downloaded it from here awhile back, but apparently not. I can upload what I have if there's interest.

£2.06...

Thank you for the two versions. Let's hope somebody can provide the missing pages.

Edit: I'll wait a couple of days (until Monday) for a kind person to scan and send the missing pages before I upload the manual.

That's pretty cheap. The postage will cost more. Have the seller scan the missing pages for the same price!

Quote from the email: "Your order is on the Royal Mail International Standard Large Letter service and will take 5-7 working day(s) (including Saturdays) to arrive"
Fingers crossed.

And it arrived That was much faster than expected. Manual is in near mint condition I'll scan it next week and upload it. Pages 13 and 40 have text (I was half expecting them to be empty).

Well done

Thanks Second time I'll be able to 'control' the whole process from scanning to making the PDF. Fingers crossed the result will be decent.

Great! I look forward to seeing its red cover and the missing English Garrison Icons page.

It begins:


Still have another manual to process (30 pages left), but today I'll scan the manual and mostly likely start to work on it.

I didn't see a post on how the scanning process is done, but it seems like the scans are desaturated and sharpened for better readability?

I can only speak for my 'process': If the pages weren't weighed down during scanning you get grey areas where the paper didn't touch the glass. Those I try to correct with a mix of something similar to desaturation and maunally removing leftover 'noise' at the edge of the pages so that graphics don't look (too) off. Same with scans when the other side shines through. That does make the text more readable, but nothing is sharpened.
