In making copies of original document sheets in the platen of a copier it is sometimes desirable to be able to shift the position of the text image being copied on the copy sheet, i.e. to change the size of the copy margins. There are several known ways of providing this margin shift, some of which are programable by the operator to be performed automatically by the copier. Examples are disclosed in U.S. Patents 4,579,444; 4,162,844; 4,442.7.51: 3,473,035; 4,029,411; and 4,187,024 or 4,272,180. The first of these is noted especially for its description in col. 21 of incrementally changing the servomotor controlled stopping position of the platen transport to change the document stopping position on the platen, and thereby the imaging position of the document relative to the copy sheet. With an automatic document feeder (ADF) the document is being fed onto the platen from an off-platen input.
