    3.5 Excluding a Color from the image (drop out color) One of the primary colors: red, green ,blue or any other color can be removed (dropped out) from the scanned image data. For example, if the document contains black text in a green frame, you can set the scanner to read only the text and eliminate (drop out) the green frame.(Dropout color will only work when scanning in monochrome or grayscale mode).

  • Page 103

    Select the color to be dropped out from [Dropout Color] under [More]. For example, if the document contains black text in green frame, select [Green] so that the scanner only reads the text and eliminates the frames. If you do not wish to have any colors dropped out, select “None”. If you wish to drop out a customed color, please select [custom pattern 1-3].

    Dropout Image The image as it will be generated after the dropout is displayed. Dropout color The selected dropout color will be shown as numeric value and as color sample. You can enter a numeric value directly or use the [ ▲ ]/[ ▼ ] buttons to change the dropout color. Priority Black If you do not wish to drop out text from the image, please mark “Priority Black”.

  • Page 105: Skipping Blank

    3.6 Skipping blank Pages If enabled, the scanner will automatically detect blank pages of the documents and remove them from the scanned image. For example, when double sided and single sided pages are scanned together, the blank side of the single sided pages will be skipped during scanning. Change settings in the [TWAIN Driver] dia- log box to enable skipping blank pages at scanning documents.

  • Page 106

    Check the [Blank Page Skip] box. When the check box is marked, “Cache Mode” will change to “Ram cache” or “Use both memory”. Using the slider control under [Blank Page Skip], specify the Blank Page Skip degree. <In Binary/Halftone mode> For white pages, use the [Black Dots Ratio] slider bar to set the skip condition.

  • Page 107

    <In Color/Grayscale mode> The [TWAIN Driver] dialog box will be redisplayed. Then, perform the scanning operation on the dialog box. Use the slider bar to set the skip condition in five stages from 1 to 5. The bigger the value, the more likely a page will be detected as blank.

  • Page 108: Detecting Multifeeds

    3.7 Detecting Multifeeds “Multifeed” is an error that occurs when two or more sheets are accidentally fed into the ADF at the same time. You can set the scanner to display an error message or ring the buzzer when the scanner detects a multifeed.

  • Page 109

    Select the detection conditions from [Multifeed Detection] under [ADF Option]. You can choose the following: None Multifeed detection is not performed. Check overlapping The scanner monitors for the overlapping of documents. The scanner detects a multifeed by differences in ultrasonic propagation. Check length The scanner monitors the length of documents.

  • Page 195: Multifeed Detection

    8.4 Multifeed Detection Multifeed refers to the phenomenon, when two or more documents are fed overlapping at once into the scanner. This may cause the loss of important data. To prevent this, this scanner is equipped with a Multifeed detection function. When function is activated, a message will be displayed and the scanning interrupted in case a Multifeed has been detected.

  • Page 196

    • When scanning documents of different length together in the same ATTENTION stack, select [Checking overlapping] • If something is glued to the documents (stamps, memo or photos), they will be recognized as Multifeed when using [Checking overlapping] When scanning such documents, use [Checking length difference] instead.

    Speficy the detection area. Specified area: Specify the area to be detected. Select left, middle, or right. Middle Right Left Document Unit: mm Selected mode: You can specify the mode to detect or not to detect the specified area for multifeed.

  • Page 198

    Setting Example 1: Specified area = Right, Selected mode = Non-detection area, Start = 50mm, End = 200mm Unit: mm Setting Example 2: Specified area = Middle, Selected mode = Detection area, Start = 50mm, End = 200mm Unit: mm When you want to detect overlapping, be sure that paper documents are not clinging to each other.

  • Page 199: Page Edge Filler (adf)

    8.5 Page Edge Filler (ADF) Depending on the state of the documents, the shadow of the scanned document appears in the end portion of the output image and black thin lines may be generated. If this is the case, you can improve the output image by using the “Page Edge Filler” function. This func- tion fills the end portion of the image so that it looks clean.

  • Page 200

    Unless otherwise specified, the background color is white. You can also change it to the “Black background” using the scanner driver. HINT If you are using the TWAIN driver, do the following to change the back- ground color to black: Select the [Option] button, and then select [Black background] from [Automatic Size and Skew detection] on the [Rotation] tab.

  • Page 201: Dropout Color

    8.6 Dropout Color By using the “Dropout Color” function, you can scan documents with the specified color removed from the light’s three primary colors, or red, green, blue. (This function is available for the binary black and white setting as well as the grayscale setting.) For example, you can scan only the black part of letters when scanning the document containing black let- ters each with a green frame.

  • Page 202: Pre-pick

    8.7 Pre-Pick To scan documents consecutively, you can previously pick the document to be scanned next. This opera- tion is called Pre-Pick. By enabling Pre-Pick, the time interval between the scanning of two separate documents can be shortened. Configure the settings for the Pre-Pick as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel.

  • Page 203: Page Edge Filler (automatic Paper Size Detection)

    8.8 Page Edge Filler (Automatic paper size detection) When the scanner is set to detect paper size automatically, depending on the state of the documents, the black frame may be generated on the output image.

  • Page 204: Page Edge Filler (automatic Paper Size Detection)

    The “Automatic Paper Size Detection” setting can be configured on the scanner driver setting window. HINT For details on how to set the setting, refer to “3.8 Correcting skewed Docu- ments” on page 90 Note that if the Page Edge Filler is too wide, some characters in the vicinity ATTENTION of the boundary may be cut.

  • Page 205: Thin Paper Mode

    8.9 Thin Paper Mode If nonstandard thin paper cannot be fed and scanned smoothly, use this mode. In this mode, sheets of paper are fed at a slower speed so that thin paper can be fed and scanned properly. Follow the steps below to switch to the Thin Mode. Start up the Software Operation Panel.

  • Page 206: Paper Jam Detection

    8.10 Paper Jam Detection You can set the degree of detection sensitivity for a jam at the feeder. Configure the settings for Paper Jam Detection as follows: Start up the Software Operation Panel. Refer to “8.1 Scanner Settings” on page 166.
