"Deskew" greyed out

Post by helmut »

There's the new feature "Deskew" to deskew scans. Users might wonder why the menu item is greyed out all the time. Reason is that "Deskew" works on greyscale and b&w images, only. And you have to select an area which contains skewed horizontal lines.

I suggest to have the menu item "Deskew" enabled all the time. If the image is not a greyscale image a message box should appear.

The same applies if the image is greyscale, but no selection was made. In this case, also a message box should appear, telling that for deskewing a selection around an area containing skewed horizontal lines.

This would help people a lot and prevent us from many questions. (The same applies for "Red Eye Correction", and there were many questions).
