queXF 1.20.0 has been released today

queXF now supports a "double entry" feature, where two independent operators verify a form. By default this is disabled, but you can enable it for existing forms from the new "Double entry" menu, or refer forms to be verified again from the "Review forms" function.

queXF 1.18.1 released

queXF 1.18.1 has been released today

A major new feature is the processing forms as greyscale/grayscale for better management of dithering. This means queXF will process forms scanned as greyscale/grayscale (256 shades) just as well (in some cases better) than forms scanned as monochrome (1 bit). You may need to alter the IMAGE_THRESHOLD configuration item to determine the monochrome conversion cutoff.

Bug fixes relating to banding (default output width of a text field, and box detection) and verification (UTF-8 encoding) have been resolved.

queXF 1.18.0 Released

queXF 1.18.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

Multiple bug fixes and better handling of scanned pages of varying sizes. This release makes the "Page setup" feature optional instead of required. In most cases - this is ideal as using automatic edge detection works better on differing page sizes.

queXF 1.15.0 Released

queXF 1.15.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

Single choice fields with more than 1 box are now automatically confirmed for the verifier where strictly one box is correctly detected. This should greatly improve productivity of verifiers where there are many single choice fields to verify. Duplicate forms that have not been verified can now be easily deleted using the duplicate form function.

queXF 1.14.0 Released

queXF 1.14.0 has been released today on Sourceforge

This release adds a new feature where page edge detection has been greatly improved. queXF can determine if a page corner has been detected incorrectly and repair it. This should greatly improve page alignment where scans are not ideal. Please report any successes or failures using the Launchpad bugs or answers system.
