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.
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.
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.
