MFP6128 - How do I scan legal size paper?

I'm trying to figure out how to scan in lagal size paper (8-1/2" x 14") into my computer.  Every time I've tried it ends up being 8'12" x 11" with the bottom 3" cut off.  Please help!

are you using autodetect? you can predefine your scan area when copy/scanning

Re: 6128MFP - How do I scan legal size paper?

The printer came with PaperPort.  If I want to scan documents into the computer, I use PaperPort.  That program has "Letter, A3, A4, B4 & B5" for paper options.  When I checked what the A & B sizes were, none of them fit 8-1/2x14 paper.  All this is done from my computer.

 

When I set up the scan on the printer and send it to the computer by USB. it still creates an letter sized scan and cuts off the bottom.  So neither method works for creating legal sized scans.

Re: MFP6128 - How do I scan legal size paper?

I've tried to set it up on a LAN but couldn't figure out how to do it.  I like Paperport.  It's user friendly and also can be used to create PDFs.  My Acrobat 6.0 doesn't work for that anymore.  Obviously I'm not IT savvy.
