Abstract

In using an electrophotographic copier having reduction capability, the operator will frequently experience difficulty in selecting the proper match between the machine's reduction ratio and the copy paper size. This disclosure relates to a solution of this problem which involves automatic sensing of the size of the original document and adjustment of the magnification to produce an image which matches the size of the copy paper being used by the copier.
