I want to email a scanned document. I am not sure how to do this, so I guessed. I assumed I would need to scan the document to my computer (iMac), save the file and attach it to the email. I chose "pdf to preview" from scan menu. I pressed start scan. Only bottom of page appeared on computer screen. I checked position of paper on the flatbed and it was correct. Is there something out of alignment?
Is there a better, more direct way to email a scanned document?

How to Scan a Document on an All-in-One Printer
Scanning is a standard all-in-one printer feature that converts a hard-copy document into electronic information, which your computer can store and modify. You can scan legal files, office reports or just about any other kind of document and create an electronic backup for your files, send it as email or alter it to suit your needs. Follow these steps to scan a document on an all-in-one printer:
1)Turn on your all-in-one printer and computer. Check the connections between the two machines.2)Lift the printer's document lid. Examine the scanning surface and the underside of the lid for dust and fingerprints.3)Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.4)Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.5)Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.6)Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.7)Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.8)Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.9)Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.10) once the document is scanned and saved you can email it.
