Scanning Documents of Different Widths or Lengths in One Batch

Documents of different widths or lengths can be scanned in one batch.

Scan documents of different widths or lengths in one batch in the following procedure.

  1. Load a document in the ScanSnap.

  2. Align the top of the documents.

  3. Load the documents toward the center of the ADF paper chute (cover).

    ATTENTION

    • Make sure that all documents are loaded toward the pick rollers (center of the scanner).

      If a document is loaded toward the pick rollers, the document is not fed.

    • Adjust the side guides to the widest document in the batch.

    • Load the documents other than the widest document so that they can be scanned straight. If a document is skewed when being scanned, the scanned image may be distorted (for example, part of the image appears missing or slant lines appear on the image), the size of the scanned image may be different from the actual size of the document, or other problems may occur in the scanned image. If the documents cannot be scanned straight, enable the continuous scanning, separate the documents by their widths, and scan them in different batches.

    • If the side guides are not adjusted to the width of the documents, paper jams may occur.

  4. Press the Scan button on the ScanSnap to start a scan.

    The scanned images are saved in the actual size of each document.

    ATTENTION

    If a document is skewed when being scanned, the size of the scanned image may be different from the actual size of the document.
