Solved: Picture Alignment

Q: Solved: Picture Alignment

I'm scanning picture for my parents and I've gotten to the point of scanning prints. I've been using a piece of cardboard (of which I measure to a fraction of an inch) to try to align the image in the scanner bed. It works to a point. But, there are images that are curled up and end up out of position once the cover is closed. Also, the prints were never properly align when they were made. I know of image programs that allow you to rotate the image so that it is properly aligned. But, I find them cumbersome in terms of precision (they didn't have grids or such that I could align with). Is there a program that you can have a grid to line up the picture with or even a way that you could place two points on the picture and the program automatically lines the picture up according to the two points?

I have my "Caption" style customized with Alignment=Centered, however whenever I insert a new caption for a picture (right click on picture|Insert Caption), its alignment is Left, which is the same alignment that the picture has by default; if I change the alignment of the picture beforehand, for example to Right, then its caption will also be inserted with Alignment=Right, disregarding the style. I therefore have to manually apply the Caption style for every single caption that I insert, in order for it to become centered. Interestingly enough, even though the caption does not have the Caption style when first inserted, it does have all of the text formatting included in that style; for instance, I have set the font under the Caption style to be gray and italicized, and inserted Captions are indeed gray and italicized, but the Alignment setting is always overwritten by the picture's alignment. My question is whether it is possible to either - make inserted captions automatically be of the style Caption, or - set a default alignment for inserted pictures; I know you can set a default *position* for them (such as In-line With Text, or Squared) but I'm not sure if there is also a style for pictures or something that can allow a default set of settings for every new picture inserted into the document Can anyone help? Anticipated thanks. PS: using Word 2007 on Windows XP.

I have a Transmission line that goes from one location to another. Each location has a name and a number. Every line is identified by the location it is coming from to the location it is going to. The lower number of the two locations is alway where it is coming from. I receive many cases with a lot of lines, but they might not always contain the same number of lines.

In my example I attached I would like Excel to automatically add a line to the September 2008 section so that the line 3z 4t lines up with the same line in August 2008. I sometimes have to deal with over 20 sections with up to 50 columns and 20,000 lines and it is difficult to go through and line them up to compare data. A new line could come in later or a line could go out of service, so I can't necessarily think I will have 3 lines, like in the case, just because my first case has three. I think access does this well, matching up records, but I would like to do this in excel. I think I described it well enough but if I could provide further explanation please ask.

I need to repeatably copy and paste from some cells to another document

This is making my cut/paste job quite tedious
I would like to remove the quote mark so I don't have to not select it on copy or have to delete it on paste

I have tried selecting the column and making the number and alignment General (have tried many many things) and cannot make them go away.

Hello, recently i bought 256Gb sandisk ssd, i wanted to clone my previous hard drive partition with Windows 7 in it, because i dont want to do any new installations of windows. there is just too much custom settings in system.

Anyway, by reading tutorials over the net and using EaseUS partition master 9.3.0 paid version, i cloned my C partition to my new ssd witch i connected to USB>SATA cable for temporarly use.

Anyway, before copying, i formated SSD with windows 7 and it gave 1024offset. seems all right.
However, after started cloning in safe mode (it took 5 hours), EaseUS reformatted my SSD again and gave wrong offset, starting sector was 63.

After that i googled some method, i corrected alignment with "Minitool partition wizard home edition" free application.

Now here is the results:

is it all looking good now?

A:SSD alignment - do i am done it right?

In elevated command prompt type..... Diskpart

hit enter

then type...... list disk

then type.......select disk x

replace x with the disk you want to check

then type........list partition

it will show you the offset and it has to be divisible by 4

I have just migrated my Win8 HDD to an SSD and ran Diskpart to check the alignment. The attached shows the result. Note Partition 1's (The UEFI partition) offset is 1024KB which is fine, I think. Partition 2's (Win 8 System) offset is 330MB and Partition 3's (Data) is 60GB. Neither of the last 2 is divisible by 4 evenly. Does that mean they are not properly aligned for an SSD? Or should I just not worry about it?

Thank you very much.

Thank you.

I assume you are using diskpart????

I think the first one will create a single partition covering the entire drive.

I think the second one will create a small 100 mb partition that you could then make the system partition.

But you don't need that small system partition, so I would do the first command.

I don't think you even need the align part of the command.

I have set up 2 computers with SSD as the C drive. I used diskpart to align both of them. Both had different issues. The 1st I could not install the image backup so I did a fresh install of W7.

The 2nd the image restore when smooth and all seemed to work but I had a new hardware conflict the was giving me BSOD and I didn?t figure that out until I hosed the 500g backup drive on the machine (another thread). So I did a fresh install of Vista.

As always when I install a fresh copy I format the drive to install windows on and it looks to me like I must have deleted the partition for the bitlocker set up in the diskpart procedure. As you can see from the screenshots nether of them shows a partition.

So at this point both seem to work fine. Can they be aligned after the OS has been installed? Or do I make an image then remove each and align and restore the image?

I have a friends Dell Studio 1555 laptop and their hard drive was failing badly. They have no money right now to get a new drive so I opted to help because I have 2 SSD's sitting around planned for nothing. So I had imaged the drive about 2-3 months ago and he has that. So I took the SSD and just imaged the system on to it; but I forgot about the alignment. I was able to boot in to Windows 7 and all that. It seems fine. But I said I need to wipe the SSD (Parted Magic process) and then create the alignment partition. Then I imaged the system, but this time at boot up all I can get to is I believe is the Dell Utility test. There is no way around that I can see.

So I Parted Magic again, reloaded without the alignment and the system boots. So he needs his laptop back and to me it is running, but I know of the alignment issue. Believe me when I say he is just going to love the speed compared to what he had (which BTW the original drive had like 738 unrepairable items), but I know about the alignment issue. Here are some screenshots I attached.

So I am wondering if there is a way to fix this without having to reload from the image? That way I can give him his laptop so he can work on whatever he needs to do and I can come back a week or two later to realign it; if that is all possible.

Also, if you look at the Disk Management I am not sure why at the end there is that 5GB un-formatt... Read more

Hello there, I have an Intel 520 series 120GB SSD. I ran AS SSD which told came up with '31 K - Bad'.
The speeds I got were 480MBps read and 120MBps write. Very low, but I believe the motherboard is faulty (the 3rd party SATA3 and USB3 are also not working).

I used an upgrade copy of Windows, so I installed Windows XP to the SSD first and then used the Win7 upgrade disc to do a clean install.
I read Win7 is suppose to set the correct alignment, but I deleted the partition before install, so I'm not sure why it was set 31K.

Should I change the alignment? If so, to what?

A:Should I change the alignment on my SSD?

Hello Clem,

If you wish to get the best performance from your SSD you would ideally change its alignment to something that is divideable by 4. (Like 1024 or 2048 KB)

There's a nifty tutorial here on this forums that'll guide you through the process:-

If you wish to realign the drive and it already has an active OS on it, and do not wish to have to perform another clean install after realigning, you can use this partition alignment tool from Acronis for SSDs:-

Just a little information about this tool.
My C: drive was not correctly aligned. It wasn't a big deal. Everything worked fine.
But, being a geek like the rest of you, I decided to try PAT and see if it really works.

First off, it's like $30. Not that much, but it's a one time tool.
It comes with a .exe file to create it's own rescue disk. Basically, it puts everything back to the way it was before it started. Thankfully, I didn't need it.

The application installed with no problem at all, and it does allow you to do an analysis on all connected drives, including external USB drives. It graphically shows your drives, and by color, shows which, if any need alignment. Green-good, Yellow-bad.

When you select to align, it reboots to a Pre-windows full (low res)screen showing the progress of the alignment.

My 120gb SSD took approximately 20 minutes to process.
It rebooted the PC, and opened the application and reported it as successful.
I had no other partitions on this drive, hidded or otherwise.

I ran Crystal Disk Mark before and after the alignment.

After reports nearly a doubling of the 4k and 4k-64thrd writes, and an almost 33% increase in the 4k reads.

Overall, I'd give it a thumbs up

Hey guys,

I just downloaded Windows 10 today after a mishap with my old SSD. I have to say I'm enjoying the experience. That being said, and as much as I hate asking for information, I'd like to know if there is a way to perfectly align monitors as was possible in Windows 7.

I have two monitors, both VS248, at 1920x1080. One is connected to DVI-D, and the other to HDMI. I have updated drivers for my AMD HD7850, as well as generic Windows updates. For some reason, however, this occurs:


As can be seen, the intersecting point of both monitors has a slight pixel difference. I have no idea why this is occurring as they are both the same monitors and they have been perfectly aligned in both AMD Catalyst Control Center (CCC) and Windows 10 Display Settings. The only difference that I observe is that in AMD CCC, when going in 'Desktop Properties', desktop 1 has Desktop area as 1080p whereas desktop 2 has 1920x1080. They are essentially the same thing, however, which leaves me baffled as to the cause of this misalignment.

I'm sorry if this has been answered previously, but a search didn't turn up anything (perhaps due to incorrect search terms?). Either way, I would appreciate it immensely if someone could offer some insight into why this is happening. As petty as it may seem, this is actually a huge issue for me (potentially dealbreaking); if I can't find a solution, I may have to reinstall Windows 7.

Thanks for your time!

I created a form in Adobe Designer and then had to change the page size to a smaller width. I'm trying to resize and realign the text boxes etc. to fit into the new page but all of the boxes have automatically aligned to the right side of the page (alignment within text boxes is fine). The only way I can get something to align closer than 2 inches away from the left margin is to expand the box so it is page width but in cases where there is more than one text box at the same horizontal alignment - ex. name and phone number boxes, I can't make them smaller and align one to the left. I can put them side by side but they have to be extended over whatever's on the right. Any suggestions besides starting over? it's a very big form.

I have a windows 98-based computer and I use WordPad as my word processor. But it always acts weird when it comes to aligning the text. It looks very nicely formatted on the screen, but when it's printed out or copie and pasted to my email, the alignment is a huge mess! Or, I use JAWS 3.7 and a Braille Lite 40 since I am deafblind. Anyway, I read it out in Braille and it feels nicely lined up to me, but a sighted person tells me that it's actually in corkscrews on the screen. What would make my computer do that? Anyone know a solution? Oh and by the way, while we're talking about WordPad, is there a way to make a table in a document?

A:WordPad alignment problem

I am not sure how to help you specifically with these problems. I don't understand how the alignment could go wrong, but perhaps NotePad is better for "draft" emails.

However, there is a free program called OpenOffice, which is a free office applications suite that is a lot like Microsoft Office; it just isn't as pretty. With that, you would be able to align your text better, and you will be able to insert tables. Go to www.openoffice.org

I wish you the best!

Well this happened here and the woman is flighty so I decided..."Okay I'll remove both drivers have her turn it off and let it refind the printer."

Well upon reinstalling it asked for drivers (and said no drivers found when I said no internet and install automatically) which was strange because since it was loaded it should have reloaded what was there. I could not find drivers on the PC anywhere (usually when I load PC's I copy the drivers to a foldero n the HDD in case a reload is needed but I didn't build this PC) so I went to -

Hi Leonard !

Do you have SP2 installed ? Have you installed all the latest critical updates from Windows Update ?

In IE click the question mark menu => about internet explorer and tell us which version you're using.

Have you installed any third party plugins ? If you have IE7 then go to tools => manage add-ons and disable them all.

Do you have any internet related toolbars or softwares installed, like the google or yahoo toolbar, some download manager, ... ?

Does the problem also happen with firefox ? If not then stick with firefox, many consider it a better browser than IE.

I'll move your thread to the internet explorer support section where you'll have better help.

Currently with a Q6600 quad in this mis-aligned-SSD laptop, the X25m benches with Crystal at 243MB/s for sequential reads. That seems a bit slow for even an old quad-core. But I?m not sure it?s worth the bother of re-align if it does 243MB/s since I don?t use it for high performance tasks ? or as long as the mis-alignment don?t significantly escalate the WRITE wear-and-tear factor (requiring/wasting more write space than necessary) and impacting the leveling function, thus shortening life-span.

What do you suggest for the easiest and SAFEST method for correcting the mis-alignment on the old notebook, or is it even worth messing with?

If so, should I do Secure Erase, then Diskpart re-align to 1024, then initialize/quick format, then clone (with my fss-Casper) the old original factory spin-HDD with W7 O/S and factory appls already installed on it. Or will the cloning from HDD merely re-re-align the SSD back to the 31KB offset again? Thanks!

A:Mis-Alignment on x25m 160GB SSD

I'm not familar with Casper, but as you describe it, it sounds more like an imaging program. A clone is a 1-1 copy from one disk to another. But, I would suggest a clean install. That will align it properly. I don't think a secure erase is necessary. Just in diskpart use the 'clean' command an not the 'clean all' command. There is a good tutorial about it, Ready hard drive/SSD for a clean install. But, again just use the clean command. The only tool I am aware of that will align an SSD with the OS installed is the $29.95 Paragon Alignment tool. It will do what you need. You could also clone the ssd to another hard drive and use the $19.95 Paragon migrate to clone it back. It will clone the OS and align the SSD correctly. I have it and have used it several times and it does it right every time.

If you don't want to spend the money, a clean install is the best option.

On my PC, we use Windows XP and the version of Windows XP we received came with Mircosoft Works, in the Works Word Processor, I would like to know if there is a way to change the vertical alignment of text. I know there is in "Mircosoft Word" because I was actually taught how to use it, but as for Works... I have no idea.

I have plugged several monitors into my computer lately and my icons are not lined up the way I want them to be.

The icons on my desktop have shifted to the left so the first letter of the description is cut off.

How do I change the alignment of my icons?

I would appreciate some help on this.

When I type a line of simple text and then insert a table directly below it the table does not by default alighn itself to the first letter of the text, it always aligns itself a little before.

Should I set Word to show text margins I notice that my table by default appears just overlap the margins on both sides while the text is within the margins.

Would anybody know why this is the case and how I can get it to be within the margins without necessarly having to drag the table border or make the use of indents just to get it to align.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

A:Table Alignment Question

I can't help you with the problem, which appears to be the default behaviour for Word, but would just say that it has the virtue of ensuring that the text in the first cell of the table aligns vertically with the body text above the table, which is typographically desirable
