Scanning Documents Longer Than the Standard Size Such as Receipts

Documents that are longer than the standard size, such as receipts (up to 863 mm/34 in.) can be scanned with the ScanSnap.

For details about documents that can be scanned, refer to Documents That Can Be Loaded Directly into the ScanSnap.

  1. Check that the [Scan/Stop] button on the ScanSnap is lit in purple.
  2. Insert the document straight into the feeding section of the ScanSnap, with the scanning side facing up.
  3. Press the [Scan/Stop] button on the ScanSnap to start scanning.

    Hold the scanned document with your hands to prevent it from falling off the unit where the ScanSnap is placed on.

    Make sure that the area where the document exits the scanner is clear of any obstacles. Otherwise, a paper jam may occur.

    Holding the Document
  4. Press the [Scan/Stop] button on the ScanSnap to finish scanning.

    The [Scan/Stop] button flashes in blue while the scanned image is being sent to the ScanSnap Cloud service.

    When the scanned image has been sent, the [Scan/Stop] button lights up in purple again.

    A new scan history is added to the scan history list of the ScanSnap Cloud application by updating the list. For details about the scan history list, refer to Main Screen.


    When a scanned image is sent to the ScanSnap Cloud service or saved in a cloud storage service, a push notification is sent to your mobile device.

  5. On a cloud storage service that supports the scanned document type, check the scanned image to make sure the document was scanned properly.

    Scanned images can be checked on the Detail View Screen of the ScanSnap Cloud application.


    If the scanned image is not saved in a specified cloud storage service, the document type for the scanned document may have been detected incorrectly. In such a case, the scanned image can be transferred to another cloud storage service. For details, refer to Transferring a Scanned Image to Another Cloud Storage Service.

    If it is difficult to do so, disable the detection of the document type and specify one cloud storage service. Scanned images will always be saved in the specified cloud storage service, regardless of the document type. For details, refer to [Select cloud storage services] Screen.
