Flatbed scanning

One of the Fujitsu sheetfeed scanners has a flatbed option that you can use if you have a large plate that needs multiple scans to capture. For text scans that cannot be sheet-fed, you're much better off using the copier/scanner systems.

Here are recommendations if you do use the flatbed portion of the Fujitsu sheetfeed scanner. Setup is very similar to using the scanners in sheet-feed mode. Only the differences will be outlined here.

The same tips for the sheetfeed scanners also apply to flatbed use of the Fujitsu scanners.

If you will need multiple scans to cover a large plate, make sure the paper stays squared for each scan — rotations of scan sections are tricky, so it's much better if they have overlaps that line up linearly.
