On Tech Support Forum (www.techsupportforum.com) "Chuckmg" first reported the problem then later posted a solution that he discovered. In part, he wrote the following:

"After studying the problem further, and doing some experiments, I achieved the desired results of importing the scanned images into MS Word, full-size and centered. For others who might run into the same problem, here are the steps::
1. Scan the document and get a preview image
2. Select only that part of the document which contains the desired image without margins
3. note the dimensions to be scanned, width and height
4. import into Word

o In Word 2003
• double-click on the image
• choose the Layout tab.
• For text wrapping, choose Square
• click on Advanced button
• center both horizontal and vertical alignments.
• Select the "Size…” tab
• make sure that the Scale is set to 100% for height and width.
• Click outside of image and continue.

o In Word 2007.
• right-click on the image and choose "Size…”
• make sure that the Scale is set to 100% for height and width.
• Select Picture Tools > Format tab > Text Wrapping > Square
• Click on down arrow under Position
• choose icon with the image in the center."


If you have not already done so, it is also helpful to use the File > Page Setup function to reduce the borders to 0.5". My next task is to figure out how to save these setting as default. Microsoft Word 2003 Help says:

  1. Select the picture that has the attributes (attribute: An object or text feature, such as line fill or text color, that you can manipulate by using drawing tools and menu commands.) you want to use as the default.
  2. On the Drawing toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, click Customize on the Tools menu, and then click the Toolbars tab.), click Draw, and then click Set AutoShape Defaults.
I followed the above steps, saved the document and even rebooted my PC, but my next scan to Word still comes out in its reduced size.

Best regards,
Bob J.

When printing a duplex booklet, the printout is reduced in size with larger margins than in original document. How can I get it to print regular size?


It happens when the documents is on A4 size and the printer is set to print on letter size (which is smaller in size). Hence the printer automatically resizes the prints which result in larger margins and print as compared to the actual document.
Therefore, when you print the documents (Press Ctrl+P) you have to select the paper (A4) from the print properties.

Hope it helps! Good Luck!

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

Is there a way to change the size (make it smaller) of a scanned document?


You can also reduce size when you add an image to a document like Word but this only reduces visual size.
To reduce the actual size you will need some type of image editing software.
Photoshop is most widely used but there are others available.

I scanned a document, but when I go to attach the file, it stays in attaching files forever??


Greg, Do you mean that when you want to send it by email it keeps attaching the file forever? If yes then check the size of the scanned document. What happens is that the moment you attach a document to an email Windows start sending it to the email server and that takes time as uploading is slower than downloading. And if the file a large one as scanned documents can be, then it will take that much longer. Try a smaller document first. Size wise small document. If that works fine then you can try larger documents. yes it may be time consuming but there is no price for mental satisfaction. To reduce the size of the scanned document, reduce the pixels in settings of the scanner. or reduce the page size. You will find the document reduced many times over.

Scan image too small


Have in mind that an image you insert on a "word page"can't spread out the margins or cover all the page, unless you do it manually.
Just a clue.

Scans @ 75-80% of original size..how do I get it to scan @ 100%


the only thing I can think is the scan or print settings on the printer itself. there should be a way to adjust the size from either the printer or the preferences on you computer in the print screen.

PDF Files When Scanning with X4270


If you can reduce your scan resolution (e.g. 150 DPI instead of 300 DPI) or color depth (scan in black and white instead of color) it will result in a smaller PDF.

Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one


The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.
