Today when I scan a book, I use the scan to file function along with the build job button.
Today, when the printer have made the pdf file, I use adobe acrobat to split a file page into two parts. So that I get the book's left and right page as 2 individual pages in the new pdf document.
At other times, I define a scan area on the glass. Then I scan the left side and the right side of the book in two operations.
There is a lot of moving the book back and forth, while I move forward in the book.
If I could scan to a file, with the book copying function, this would have been much easier.
I hope Xerox will implement this feature in its printer software.
By the way, I work at a school, and we have 10 WC 7855 and an ALC C8055.
We are very pleased with the printer from xerox.
It isn't an option on Xerox devices, but it is on Fuji-Xerox devices.
Current Fuji-Xerox devices sold in North America would be all in the VersaLink family, and the C60-C70
The following is conjecture, not verified fact:
I'm pretty sure it is a legal thing, for example one North American student can buy a textbook for a large amount of money and sell digital copies by scanning it. There are many companies that simply won't allow this.
Because of the markets they support, Fuji-Xerox doesn't have that particular worry.
There is a book copying option on many of Xerox machines that allows you to copy the left or right hand side of a bound original on the copy glass or both pages at once.
But I also miss the opportunity to create a pdf file of the book, instead of printing it.
Such a function would be handy when scanning books to create a pdf file. I could then create a pdf document where a page in the file represents a page in the original book.
But now, when I scans a book, I get a pdf file where every page in the file shows both the right and left pages from the original book.
Is there a solution for this?
If not, when will this feature be available in a software upgrade?
Any Xerox Uservoice?
Thanks for reply.
