Did you know that your scanner can scan a document that is up to 34 inches long? That’s right, you can scan all of those lo-o-o-o-ong receipts without any fuss!

Simply open your scanner and extend the trays to their maximum positions. Adjust the sliding guides to help the hold document in place. You may need to use a hand to hold the end if your page if it’s very long, so it doesn’t slip out of the scanner. Then just hold the Scan button down for 3 seconds. The button will blink blue and scanning will begin!

This is not recommended for legal size documents (your iX500 can scan those just fine with no special treatment), and make sure to scan only one long document at a time.

Now you’re all set for scanning those long documents!
