Troubleshooting

Please Note: Color TIFF Files cannot be saved in color, because these functions have restrictions:

Restrictions and limitations for "Smooth text, line removal, hole punches removal, dot removal and border removal"

The following options can only be used in black and white images (1 bit formats). When color documents should be processed, then the option "auto binarization" (only possible with TIFF and PDF Files) has to be enabled and the files can only be stored in 1 Bit format.

Color documents can only be saved in color mode, if they have complete empty pages. Therefore a second task isn't required.
