android Document Camera oddities

Two things about document camera in EN Android




The 'use a contrasting background' warning gets seriously in the way of taking a picture if I want to capture the centre of a big page,  but not the whole page.  And.




What's with the little box and big margins?


Anyone else finding the same thing?

Yes, same issues here (HTC One M7, Android 4.4). Apart from that, the image taken by the document camera is useless in most cases.

Thanks for the validation!


Forgot to mention that the shaded area is much smaller for the first photograph,  but then shrinks to what you see above.  To be fair one-page document captures work well for me - receipts,  book pages etc - as long as there's a defined edge to the page.  Moleskine books forinstance come with a brightly coloured bookmark that's useful as a page delimiter.


More than one page can be problematic as above...


Edit:  Took my own advice and reported bug:  ##923484
