Scanning Settings vs Copy Settings

Product Name: Xerox Versant 80 Press
Operating System: Windows 10 x64

When copying from the glass, I am able to utilize a variety of settings: Photo, Text, Map, etc.  I need the "Map" setting to get the best quality out of pencil drawings for a customer.  However, she also wants to save the images to a file, but there is no "Map" setting under the Scanning function.  Scanning allows only for Text or Photo, which result in horrible images.  Is it possible to enable the "Map" function for the scanner?

There are several options when choosing how to scan your hard copy documents ... To change your resolution, go to the 'Advanced Settings' tab on your Xerox

Re: Scanning Settings vs Copy Settings

I am not trying to change the scanning resolution.  The problem is the difference in available options for scanning to a file versus copying directly from the glass. 

Please see attached images showing the options available for each method.  

The COPY function (which copies directly from the glass onto paper) gives me an option for "MAP" which for hand-drawn artwork produces a MUCH superior quality copy.  However, this is inadequate, as I need to be able to SAVE a file for later printing.

The SCAN function (which creates a TIFF or JPG file on my server, rather than an image on paper) does not have the "MAP" function.  The only options for scanning are text, photo, or photo/text.  Again, these options do not produce the quality I can get from the "MAP" function under the copy screen.

Re: Scanning Settings vs Copy Settings

There is apparently no solution.  You can use the "map" setting ONLY when making copies from the glass directly to paper.  You CANNOT use the "map" setting when scanning to a file.  (I've found that the "map" setting produces superior colors and detail when duplicating my customers' hand-drawn images.)
