Placing a Document
When you place documents under the ScanSnap, use the Background Pad.
If you scan a document without the Background Pad, the edges of the document may not be detected correctly and the created scanned image may be different from the document.
Place a document with the scanned side face-up in the following scan area.
Use the following to determine the scan area.
Area: Reference marks of the Background Pad
Height: Lines on the base of the ScanSnap
If a document is placed outside of the scan area, part of the scanned image may be left out or blurred.
When placing a standard size document
When you select an option other than [Automatic detection] for the paper size in the profile settings, align the center of the document with the centering mark on the ScanSnap.
When placing a book
Place a book as follows:
Open a book horizontally.
Align the center of the opened book face-up with the centering mark.
Hold the book down with fingers within the appropriate areas.
When holding the book down, use your fingers as follows:
Keep your fingers straight.
When using multiple fingers to hold down the book, keep fingers apart by at least 2 cm (0.79 in.).
When placing a photo
Align the center of the photo with the centering mark of the ScanSnap.

To scan multiple documents at once, place them in the following conditions:
The documents must be placed at least 15 mm (0.59 in.) apart from each other.
