The program supports TWAIN-compliant scanners. Ensure that your scanner has the latest
TWAIN driver. TWAIN drivers can be downloaded from the scanner manufacturers’ websites.
By default, the scanned pages are placed in a temporary Workfile. The current image is displayed
in the main window and all pages in the Workfile are shown in a scrollable thumbnail display. The
displayed image can be resized by clicking on the display option icon in the left side panel.
Alternatively, you can resize the main window by dragging the lower right corner. The pages can
then be re-arranged, removed, and page-separated. The images can also be edited (remove
black borders, deskew, rotation, cropping, etc). For more detail, see ‘Workfile’ section below.
There are also options to scan and save directly, without the Workfile, via the Scan menu, or long-
press on the Scan buttons.
If you only have one scanner on your computer, the program should defaults to that scanner.
Scanners are of either the Flatbed or Automatic document feeder (ADF) model, or both. If you
select the ‘ADF or Flatbed’ option, the scanner picks the documents from the feeder if loaded,
otherwise it scans from the flatbed.
Choose the paper size of the scanned documents. Only the most common paper sizes and
resolutions are listed in the dropdown lists. You can create up to eight additional presets in Setup.
Each preset can have its own size, scanning area, color setting, resolution, brightness, contrast,
etc. Alternatively, scan with the scanner’s own user interface and specify your own scan settings.
To scan with the scanner’s own interface, click on the ‘Scan UI’ button instead of the ‘Scan’ button.
There are several scanning settings:
Duplex enables duplex scanning. For some scanner models, the Duplex mode can only be set via
the scanner’s own dialog. If your scanner does not have a Duplex feature, you can simulate
duplexing. See section below.
Check the Deskew checkbox to automatically straighten skewed pages, where possible. A
manual Deskew option is also available by right-clickingthe displayed scanned image (or long-
If the Despeckle checkbox is checked, stray pixels are removed from the scanned pages (the
result is limited).
The program has an option to exclude virtually blank pages. To exclude blank pages when
scanning, you must check the Exclude blank pages checkbox before you start scanning. Pages
can also be excludes in the Workfile after scanning.
If the Auto-Rotate option is checked, the images are rotated 180, 90 or 270 degrees (upside,
clockwise, counterclockwise) during the scanning process. This option is typically used if stacks of
paper are inserted in the tray upside down to avoid jamming due to staple marks. If you use
auto-rotate, any separator pages must also be in the correct orientation. Individual pages can
also be rotated (90, 180 and 270 degrees) in the Workfile, after scanning.
