Putting a sheet of black paper behind the item that's showing print-through does make things a bit easier when it comes to scanning. This is assuming that it's black ink that showing through.

No, I understand there are more men than women on this forum. You just got lucky this time!

I'm glad it is working for you. I hope we hear more from you.

Scanning Text

When I scan text and see the back page coming through I usually use curves instead of levels although both do the same thing.

In curves, in this image, I clicked the highlight box and then click into the input box in photoshop. I then press on the down arrow on the keyboard and watch the screen. When the bleed through text disappears I stop. In this case On the highlight side the input was 182 and the output 255.

Next I click on the black box and use the up arrow. In this case the input is 43 and the output is 0.
