Abstract

This is a suggested feature to be added to the operator displays for a scanner, or multifunction printer with scanner, via the software and GUI (Graphical User Interface). The actual document width of documents being fed from the document feeder would be measured as the document is electronically scanned at the imaging station, and compared with the output(s) of sensors or switches indicating the side guide setting(s). If they are inconsistent, there would be an automatic display of an error warning or indication that the document feeder input tray side guides are incorrectly set.
