Modifying the Scan.conf for Centred ADF Scanning

We have added support for the leftOffset option to the Scan.conf file. Use this option if you don't want to modify the ADF chute so that it is aligned towards the back of the scanner.

To calculate the leftOffset option, consider that the paper chute on all Fujitsu scanners we support is 12 inches wide. If your paper is 10.5 inches wide, the difference between the chute and the paper is 1.5 inches. Since this difference is distributed on both sides of the paper chute, the offset from either edge is 0.75 inches. Therefore, the leftOffset option would be 0.75.

We added the leftOffset option to this sample of the Scan.conf file:

host: scan-1
name: Fujitsu10.5
descr: The scanner to use for black & white and greyscale scans.
device: sc1;d5;l0

model: Fujitsu_fi4750C
defaultThreshold: 80
defaultResolution: 200
registrationStrictness: Loose
leftOffset: 0.75

You can add additional entries in the Scan.conf file to support paper of different sizes. For example:

host: scan-1
name: Fujitsu8
descr: The scanner to use for black & white and greyscale scans.
device: sc1;d5;l0
model: Fujitsu_fi4750C
defaultThreshold: 80
defaultResolution: 200
registrationStrictness: Loose
leftOffset: 2
