Xerox Disclosure Journal
A flap 1 of thin sheet (only .3 - .4mm) spring steel is provided flatly overlying the document lead-in edge area (approximately 50mm wide) of a copier platen 2. The flap 1 prevents imaging onto a copy sheet of the overlying feed-on baffles or other document feeder mechanisms (not shown) when the copier is in a reduction mode, which mode causes imaging of a larger area of the platen. The bottom of the flap 1 has a white diffusely reflective surface for that purpose.
