Scanning Drawings

After building your exposure sheet, opening the cells in the Scan module, configuring your scanner, fine tuning your scan settings and previewing your scanned drawings, you are now ready to begin the final scanning process.

There are five ways in which you can feed your drawings through the scanner:

Autofeed: Scan the drawings in the automatic document feeder (ADF).
Autofeed (One): Scan the drawings in the ADF one at a time, and click Scan for each drawing.
Pegged: Scan a drawing on the scanner, and click Scan each time you change the drawing on the scanner.
Pegged (Many): Automatically scan the drawing in the scanner every five to ten seconds (depending on the time required to process the drawings).
However, this mode does not scan each drawing automatically when you click the Preview button.
Pan Cel: Scan a drawing into the system in separate sections, because the drawing is bigger than the scan window.

You may find that the Autofeed option is not available on your system, since your scanner may not support it. The field size you select can also determine which mode is available.

All scanning modes support 12 field.
The Autofeed modes do not support 16 field or higher.

When you start scanning your drawings, the Scan module scans the drawings in the order in which they appear in the Drawing List. After setting these options, you may only need to perform Previewing Scanned Drawings and Scanning Drawings for future scans.

If you want to reverse the order of these drawings, select Edit > Reverse List Order.
If you want to make any other sorting changes, you can reselect the drawings from the Drawing Selector dialog box.
You may need to re-enter your list of drawings using the File > Build Manual List command.
