Removing paper color /colour (eh!)

I am attempting to convert some paper forms to fillable PDF forms.
The form is printed on 2-part carbon forms and the paper colour is pink.
The original is not available to me.
I thought I would try scanning the form into Neopaint, try to remove the pink background colour and try to Export to PDF.
And work on it from there.

Tried 'Fill replacement' with no results.
Tried scanning Grayscale but then get grey background.

Any suggestions?

Do you mean 'Color Replacement fill'?

NP4/NP5 show both the Color Tolerance slider. Do you try different tolerance setting.

Have you test the pink values with the color picker to know if there are a lot different pinks?

Thanks for your reply.

I was able to scan Black and White and text or Grayscale.
The preview in NP looked terrible but when I printed it, it wasn't too bad.

Now I am going to use Report Designer and either background or insert image and lay the fields over the image to get the report I want.
