How Do I Scan Various Sized Documents in One Batch with My ScanSnap S510?

I have a ScanSnap S510 and I want to scan several different sized documents all in one batch. Is there a feature that allows me to configure ScanSnap to automatically detect and properly scan various sized documents all in one pass?
ScanSnap S510 has many intelligent features to help ensure your scans are displayed correctly and one of those functions is called “Automatic Paper Size Detection.” Although ScanSnap will allow operators to set a specific paper size for all scans such as letter size, legal size and many other standard paper sizes, the user can choose to select “Automatic detection” in the “Paper size” field located on the “Paper size” tab inside ScanSnap Manager. When “Automatic detection” is selected, ScanSnap will automatically evaluate the page size for each document passing through the feeder and perform an automatic de-skew and crop of each image. If the operator needs to scan many various sizes in a single batch, the operator should check the “Scan mixed paper size” box on the same tab so that ScanSnap can freely perform adjustments for each page whether it is larger or smaller than the page scanned before it.
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
