I would suggest that you go into Adobe Pro before you take the file into
Kurzweil so that you can crop out the printer's marks and headers on the
page. (You can set the page number in Kurzweil itself, so you do not need
the header.)

When you have to do a lot of editing in Kurzweil, I have found it easiest to
check the zones on all the pages in the chapter first and then go back and
examine the underlying text. That way you are not going in and out of so
many interfaces.

I have to admit that I am a bit envious that you feel this file is bad.
Except for problems with the headings, it really went into Kurzweil quite
nicely.oh the stories we could tell. ;-)

Subject: [Athen] Kurzweil Question

Hello all,

I received a file from Pearson through ATN. The file print quality/format
is in very bad shape (disconnected text, varying sizes, compressed words,
etc). I did request a better copy but alas this is all they have. I don't
really have the capability to scan (I could but it would be one page at a
time) so I'm drudging through it in Kurzweil and zone editing the underlying
text. Does anyone have any suggestions on a different way to do this? I am
the only one in my office who handles this stuff. This is the first time
I've gotten a file in such bad shape. It is every page. I've attached one
page as an example of the issue.

Thanks in advance,
