How Do I Switch between the Document Feeder & Glass?

It's easy to switch between the document feeder and the glass on your scanner:

  1. Click the Scan button
  2. To scan from the glass, select "Use Flat Bed" OR
  3. To scan from the feeder, de-select "Use Flat Bed"
  4. To make this change permanent, click the "Save" button right above that section of options
  5. Click "Start Scan" to proceed with the scan


If scanning from the feeder or document scanner isn't working properly, first make sure that you have the latest TWAIN drivers for your scanner and Windows version from the manufacturer's website.

If it still isn't working correctly, try each of the "Mode" options on the Scan dialog.
