Abstract

In a conventional scanner, the scanner has an 11" by 17" platen wherein a similar size platen cover resides thereover. Typically, a scanner has a 1/8" high registration edge along the 11" side of the platen; however, the typical scanner has no registration edge on the 17" side of the platen. the lack of a registration edge on the 17" side of the platen causes problems when scanning books.
