  6. Press the [Scan] button in the home screen on the touch panel to scan the document.
    ATTENTION
    • To continue scanning, load the next document in the ScanSnap after the "Load the next document." message is displayed on the touch panel. If you load the next document while "Scanning" is displayed on the touch panel, scanning starts immediately, which may cause the document to skew during scanning.

      If the documents are skewed during scanning, the following problems may occur:

      • Part of the scanned image appears missing

      • Slant lines appear in the scanned image

      • The size of the scanned image differs from the document size

      • Paper jams occur

    • You can change the feeding method by pressing the feed mode setting icon in the lower right of the screen for checking whether to continue a scan.

      To scan multiple sheets of documents such as office paper, change the feed mode setting to [Continuous scan].

  7. Press the [Finish] button. In the window of ScanSnap Home, where the "Load the next document." message is displayed, click the [Finish Scanning] button.

The image created from the document that you scanned is saved in the folder which is specified for [Save to] in the profile.

The saved image can be checked on the Content Data Record List View in the Main Window of ScanSnap Home.
