Tips and Advice

We have a lot of customers asking us how to include scans in documents and images.

If you want to add your scan directly to a document or image , here is how you can do it.

For images, run VueScan and do a ‘preview’, then draw a crop box around what you want to include in your document, then use the “Edit Copy image” command from the top bar menu.
Then switch to your e-mail client or word processor and use the “Edit Paste” command – the image that was in the crop box will be directly included.
For text only, do the ‘preview’ and draw the crop box around the text and then use the “Edit Copy OCR text” command. Then switch to your word processor and use the “Edit Paste” command – then you won’t need to type the text – it will be directly included.

NOTE: You have to use version 9.4.33 – this will not work in 9.4.32
