    The Detailed Settings option will display the normal Epson Scan Window for your product. This can be used to provide more control over the scan settings.

  5. Once the scan is completed, each page will be displayed as an image allowing you to preview each one before saving the file. The following operations can be used to correct any issues:
    1. Any pages that require skew or orientation alterations can be altered using the tools highlighted below.

    2. Page order can be altered using the two arrows while the plus and cross symbols can be used to make additions or remove pages from the file.

  6. After confirming the file is correct, click the open folder icon to open the Save As window. Make any required amendments to the settings and click OK to save the file to your computer.


    Selecting Apply job separation on the Save As window activates the function to sort the documents into separate files by detecting blank pages or barcodes inserted between the scanned pages. For further information on this feature, please view the Job Management section of the help guide. To access the help guide, click Help at the top of the window.
