I use a WorkCenter 7800 series machine and want to scan a booklet to PDF and email it to myself.
The booklet has 20 pages and each page is 8-1/2” x 11” and the pages are stapled in the binding.
If I remove the staples, the pages are now 17” x 11” with a ‘page’ on each side. I can put the 17x11 page in the ADF and scan it, and it come out as a 17x11 page.
I’d like to configure the machine so that it would scan the 17x11 page and automatically separate the LHS and RHS of the page and create two pages. If the original page is 2-sided, the resultant scan would be 4 pages ( a LHS and RHS for one side, and a LHS and RHS for the other)
Is it possible to configure the workcenter to do this separation of the 17x11 page images? If so, how?
I’ve read through the manual but don’t see any descriptions of how to do this.
Any pointers appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
It can't be done in a straight forward manner on any Xerox made devices, FujiXerox does have it.
What it comes down to most likely is legal reasons, a school can copy a book, but you can't simply scan a very expensive university text book and share it (and the physical copies cost) amungst everyone in the course is an example
The roundabout way, and it is a lot of work, is to use the booklet *copy* feature. But its off the glass, not the ADF and you can then take the output of the copy and scan to PDF. Not an ideal solution, but it gets where you want to go.
thank you...I did consider the book copy approach but it seemed wasteful since the goal is a .pdf doc. For 20 pages, while slow and a bit tedious, it will probably work
I do appreciate the feedback.
