If it's for using SCANdal
with MorphOS, then I use one of the supported scanners:
1. UMAX Astra 1200S - Umax.device
2. Epson 1640SU - Epson2.device - USB or SCSI, I use USB for convenience
3. Mustek Paragon 600 II CD mustek.device
4. HP ScanJet 6300C - hp.device
5. Mustek BearPaw 1200 TA - gt68xx.device
6. Plustek S24 gt68xx.device
7. Mustek 600 CU - mustek_usb.device
8. Epson Perfection 1260 Photo - plustek.device
has fixed whatever caused the lockup of the USB sub-system once SCANdal has been utilised - which used to require a full reboot to access newly plugged in USB hardware - it works a lot better.
Though I wish the SCANdal window was more adjustable
, as there are gadgets/buttons on the right hand side of the GUI that are W A Y too L a R g E
for their use, and would work/make better/more efficient use of the space in the GUI, and IMHO users should be able to resize them, or at least the are they are contained in, and they should re-size as that is changed to suit a user, as on its own MUI screen you cannot even make use of the whole screen area, there is a large section of the lower section of the screen that refuses to resize.
Being able to resize it all, with this functionality, would be a major improvement, so you could make better/more efficient use of the program to allow the normal scanning GUI window larger, so it sizes off the bottom edge of the screen, but can be moved/slid back up into view, either with the mouse, page down/up or cursor keys, scroll bars (as you would with a browser where the page extends lower but you can still scroll it back into view on the screen) to make better use and be more accurate when scanning, as the scan 'box' does not move accurately enough (pixel by pixel) as far as I am concerned, for my needs. ( I was used to ScanQuix on Amiga 68k - which IMHO is the best scanning program I've ever used, so I got 'ruined' by such luxury -
). Having said that I like using SCANdal much more now, and currently I have to use it within its limitations, though I still hope that zukow
will manage to fix/improve SCANdal in the near future.
