in addition to the question asked in How do I break apart scanned letters using Gimp or Inkscape? : is there a way to do this automated, in a sense that I do not need to select every single 'fill-able sign' first and do 'Combine'?
I want to separate the letters of a whole page, so it would be quite a tedious job.
AMEND: I do not intend to do letter recognition. I want to be able to scan/photograph handwritten notes and transform them into a vector graphic svg so I can continue editing the notes with my favorite note taking app "Stylus Write (styluslabs.com)".
To be able to move text around, the letters need to be individual paths. Break apart works fine but having all the filled in letters is quite ugly.
