We often are asked “how can I scan a report that is 60 pages into one PDF file when my ADF capacity is only 50 pages (S510 or S1500) or only 10 pages (S300)?”
Here are the ScanSnap settings to follow for scanning a file bigger than your ADF capacity:
Click on the ScanSnap icon in your system tray to open the ScanSnap Manager. Continue by clicking on the “Scanning” tab within the ScanSnap Manager. Then check the “Continue scanning after current scan is finished” box.
Using the S510 or S300:
Using the S1500:
After you scan the first batch, you will be prompted to add more documents to your ADF after each subsequent batch until you’re done.
Upon transitioning from a PC to a MacBook Pro recently, I found my old fi-4120c wouldn’t work with the Mac so I ordered a brand new ScanSnap S1500M to go with my new laptop. Installation was a snap (pun intended). The Mac recognized the ScanSnap easily and I was up and running in no time. The S1500M recognizes every document’s characteristics automatically and adjusts for single or double sided scans, paper color and paper length. It’s just a joy to use and even superior to the 4120c’s older technology. – David, Albuquerque, NM
