To reduce the scanning time of multiple items
To scan several photographs or small items on a flatbed scanner at the same time, rather than scanning each item individually:
Place as many items as will fit on the scanner plate, rotated if necessary, and scan them to PaperPort as a single item.
Display the item in the Image View window.
On the Page ribbon, choose Select Area to outline one of the images.
— or —
On the Edit ribbon, choose Select the Whole Image and draw a dashed frame around one of the images.
Hold down the Ctrl key and press the C key. This copies the selected area to the Clipboard.
Switch to the PaperPort desktop.
Hold down the Ctrl key and press the V key.
This pastes the Clipboard contents to the desktop as a new PDF Image file.
To make this procedure even faster, use the separate ImageViewer program instead of PaperPort’s Image View to display the item with several scanned photographs.
