Why does nothing happen after a capture?

Q:

For some reason, whenever I capture or import an image, it doesn't come up. The image appears to be loading, but then nothing happens. What should I do?

A:

Short answer: click the "Share scans" button. Long answer follows...

Many users are used to seeing the edge detect screen appear right after a capture or import, so that capture can be processed.

However, when multiple images are imported or captured at once, Droid Scan does not necessarily go right to the edge detect screen. This is because the user may prefer to use batch processing and convert them all at once instead of doing it manually one by one.

In this case the recent captures or imports will just appear at the top of the scan viewer display. They will be labeled "New import."

If you started the import or capture from the home screen, you won't see this until you click on the orange "Share scans" button, and until you do that it can look like nothing happened.

An upcoming feature release of Droid Scan adds feedback for this case.
