Abstract

Apparatus for automatically registering or positioning a document 1 on a copier platen 2. The proposal includes the step of sensing when the document 1 reaches a specific spot on the platen 2 and stopping its movement with a solenoid actuated rubber foot 13 which contacts the document. Use of this registration technique eliminates the need for a movable registration finger which must be periodically moved into and out of the path of document travel.
