Abstract

When using many types of copiers, or printers, the original, following scanning, is discharged onto a flat surface, making it dificult to pick up. In an effort to make copiers more convenient, and referring to drawing Figures 1 and 2, the document receiving surface 2 of a copier is provided with a V-shaped document holder 4. Document holder 4 rises unifonnly from a low at the document inlet end 5 to a maximum at the opposite end 6. Document holder 4, which is centered on surface 2, is triangular in cross section. As a result, it is possible to discharge up to 3-4 originals onto document holder 4 without having to pick up each one. Document holder 4 makes it easier to grasp and remove the originals when the job is completed and makes the handling of documents which are curled up or down or which have dog-eared corners easier. Further, document holder 4 requires only minimal change in the otherwise flat surface of the copier and is relatively inexpensive, particularly when made of plastic.
