The ScanSnap software automatically creates Adobe PDF files which have become the de-facto standard for document exchange, enabling you to send documents anywhere in the world safe in the knowledge the recipient will see the document exactly as you see it. ScanSnap S1500 can also scan information directly into either Word, Excel or PowerPoint 2003 via OCR using the Scan2xxxx functions integrated into the ScanSnap software or Drag and drop files within ScanSnap Organizer to convert to Word, Excel or PowerPoint 2003 editable documents.

To make scanning as simple as possible, ScanSnap inspects each document to decide if a document should be scanned in black and white or colour, what the size of the page being scanned is and eliminate blank pages, all of which serve to speed the scanning operation and minimise your storage requirements. In addition each document will have misaligned text corrected (Auto Deskew) and each page will have its orientation automatically adjusted.

Using the supplied carrier sheet provides A3 scanning capability, A3 pages are folded and placed in the carrier sheet, when scanned, Scansnap will automatically stitch the 2 (front & back) images together to recreate the full A3 image The carrier sheet can also be used for scanning photos/documents which might be easily scratched or irregular shaped documents which are difficult to feed otherwise and may cause paper jams.

ScanSnap incorporates a 50 page automatic document feeder, duplex capability and colour scanning within a surprisingly small footprint and is supplied with a full version of Adobe® Acrobat® X Standard

    Can I scan photographs through the scanner's ADF?
    The desktop ScanSnap models come with a carrier sheet specifically designed to protect and aid feeding photos when scanned via the ADF.

    Apart from the above we generally do not recommend using the scanners ADF for photographs.

    If you do decide to use ADF for photographs, you may encounter the following issues.

    • Damage to the photograph
    When you scan photographs through the automatic document feeder the surface of the photographs may be scratched or otherwise damaged.
    • Pick/feed performance
    The finish on photographs is often glossy, in such cases we cannot guarantee the pick/feeding performance of the scanner.

    Although not supplied with a carrier sheet in the box the fi-6130/fi-6230/fi-6140/fi-6240 scanners do support the use of a carrier sheet via the TWAIN driver. The carrier sheet also provides the ability to do ad-hoc A3 simplex scanning provided you are prepared to fold the original. (Applies to both ScanSnap and fi model).

    The carrier sheet is available under the following part No. PA03360-0013 ( a 5 sheet pack)

    S1500 : Organiser : Desktop Search functions are masked out
    [Keyword] and [text] of [search condition] in Windows desktop search function are masked and cannot be used in Windows Vista 64bit version.

    Currently Adobe has not released the 64bit version of their iFilter module. Once Adobe release that, we will provide an online update for ScanSnap Organizer.

    Also if the Acrobat version is lower than 7.0 and Adobe Reader version is lower than 8.0, [keyword] and [text] are masked also with 32bit OS since Adobe PDF IFilter cannot be installed.

    S1500: Organiser Sharepoint: SharePoint files displayed via ScanSnap Organizer, once deleted and restored cannot be renamed or removed.
    If the file on a SharePoint site which is currently displayed by ScanSnap Organizer is removed via the web client, it is moved to the Recycle Bin on the SharePoint site, when the file is restored to the original place from Recycle bin and displayed in ScanSnap Organizer, it cannot be renamed or deleted.

    This is because the files status has been set to "checked out".

    Fix: When restoring the file from SharePoint recycle bin via MOSS web client be sure to cancel the "checked out " status.

    ScanSnap: After scanning, just prior to seeing the image in Adobe Acrobat, I get a message saying Microsoft Journal Viewer is unable to run !
    Unless you specifically need to use Microsoft Journal Viewer on the PC, it may be safely uninstalled from the PC. It is only needed if you also use Tablet PC's and need to view their journal files on a normal PC.

    There is further, more complete information on the Adobe site:

    ScanSnap: Can I use ScanSnap on the MAC OS?
    There are specific PC and Mac versions of the ScanSnap available.

    For details of the ScanSnap for Macintosh, visit

    The functionality of the PC and MAC version will vary based on the version of ScanSnap Manager supplied with each product.

    The PC and MAC versions of the scanner are specific to the relevant OS: Windows or OS-X and are not interchangeable.

    ScanSnap : How do / Why can't, I select .JPG as the output file format?
    Right click on the ScanSnap Manager icon in the system tray
    Select "Scan Button Settings"
    On the Scanning tab of ScanSnap Manager, you will need to set the "Color Mode" to Color (or Gray) rather than 'Auto Color Detection'
    Once set to "Color Mode', move to the File Option tab of ScanSnap Manager, you will now be able to select JPG in the File Format drop down.

    Note: If using ScanSnap Manager in Quick Menu mode, the output file format will be forced to PDF mode. Based on the fact that use of Quick Menu means we are not aware of the final target of the images the user will choose - so the use of PDF is required to ensure all of the scanned images in the batch are presented to the target application in a single file. JPG would create a new file for each page, so only the 1st page would be passed to the target application.
  • November 26, 2007
    ScanSnap: How do I access the 'Quick Menu'
    The Quick Menu was added on later versions of ScanSnap Manager.

    Right clicking on the ScanSnap icon, will present a menu on which you will find a "Use Quick Menu" - clicking this menu entry will enable the Quick Menu (the menu item will then appear ticked).

    Once the Quick Menu is enabled, rather than select the reqd scan function prior to scanning, the Quick Menu wil be presented after the document is scanned.

    Once it is enabled some of the tabs in the Scan Button setting window will be greyed out, since their use use not logical once the Quick Menu is enabled.

    ScanSnap : How do I access the predefined scanning profiles
    The ScanSnap Manager ver 3.1 or later allows the creation of up to 9 pre-defined scanning profiles.

    Once created these profiles allow quick and easy selection of scanning mode without the need to edit scanning settings one by one.

    PC version
    Prior to pressing the Scan button on the ScanSnap, simply LEFT click on the blue ScanSnap icon in the system tray, icons representing each predefined profile will then be displayed for selection.
    This means you can simply change target application etc with just 2 mouse clicks.

    MAC version
    Hold down mouse button over ScanSnap Icon, the list of predefined Profiles will appear

    NOTE: You may require an online update to get this feature

    ScanSnap: I've created a PDF using ScanSnap, but the maximum pages I can get in one PDF is 50 due to the size of the ADF.
    ScanSnap Manager 3.1 or later allows continuous scanning so that a PDF file containing more than 50 pages can be created at scan time.

    See Settings|Scanning|Options in ScanSnap manager, check the "continue scanning after the current scan is finished" checkbox)

    For earlier versions of ScanSnap Manager, the max PDF page count is limited to the maximum capacity of the ADF i.e. 50 pages, however you can join PDFs together to create a composite PDF using Acrobat 6.0 as follows ...

    * Using Acrobat open up the main PDF file,
    * Now using the DOCUMENT | PAGES | INSERT menu item you can select the second PDF file and chose to insert it into the first PDF at any point, selectable on the Insert Pages dialog.

    Another option is to use the FILE | CREATE PDF | FROM MULTIPLE FILES, menu in Acrobat. This appends the PDFs one after the other but gives no control over the insertion point within a PDF, but you can control the order in which the PDFs are appended

    Note: The limitations of PDF size are, max number of pages = 1000, max file size = 1GB

    ScanSnap: I've installed Abbyy FineReader, but can't find the application in my Start Menu or in ScanSnap Manager
    The version of FineReader supplied with ScanSnap is a custom version specifically for use with ScanSnap scanners. So there is no normal user interface or entry in the Start menu from which FineReader can be started. It can only be selected via the Application tab of the ScanSnap Manager software.

    UsingScan2Word and Scan2Excel

    You select these via the Application menu of ScanSnap Manager, select either Scan2Word, Scan2Excel or Scan2Powerpoint2003 depending where you want the text/data imported to.

    Now just insert your documents in the ADF, press the Scan button on the scanner, you will see the scanning progress window, once all the pages are scanned, Word,Excel or PowerPoint2003 will start up with the text/data ready to edit or save as per your requirments.

    The following ONLY applies to fi-5110EOX and fi-5110EOX2 models of ScanSnap.

    There may be cases after installing Abbyy FineReader, where it is still not visible in the Application tab of ScanSnap Manager.
    Insuch cases, please follow the procedure below :=

    Linking ABBYY FineReader for Fujitsu ScanSnap!™
    Note: Make sure Fujitsu ScanSnap! scanner is connected to your computer and the ScanSnap! Monitor application is installed.

    1. Right-click on ScanSnap! Monitor icon in task tray and choose Settings.... The Scan and Save Settings dialog box will open.

    2. On the Application tab, click the Add or Remove button. The Add or Remove Application dialog box will open.

    3. Click the Add... button. In the dialog box that opens, use the Browse button to navigate to the Abbyy application folder

    Note: ABBYY FineReader for Fujitsu ScanSnap!™ comprises three utilities: Scan2Word, Scan2Excel, and Scan2PDF (which creates searchable PDFs). Each utility is in charge of a particular format. You will need to perform steps 2 3 for each Scan2xxxx application

    ScanSnap: I've installed the ScanSnap software but can't find a TWAIN driver, can I use it with other imaging applications.
    ScanSnap uses its own unique driver, the 'ScanSnap Manager. which sits in thesystem tray.
    Images can be stored directly to any local folders or network drivesas either PDF or JPEG files

    It does NOT support the TWAIN or ISIS interface.

    Since the scanned data can be saved as industry standard PDF or JPEG files, you can use these files with any application software which supports/imports these file formats.

    Normal Scanner drivers (TWAIN,ISIS) only pass data on to an application, it is then that application which will write the final image file to disk.
    ScanSnap Manager works differently, in that it is ScanSnap Manager that creates AND writes the data to disk, either as a PDF or a JPG file.

    ScanSnap Manager then starts up the designated application within ScanSnap Manager and passes it a pointer to the recently created file, as a command line parameter, such that the image can be displayed/imported/processed by that application.

    Of course this assumes that the chosen application can accept acommand line parameter pointing to an image - not all can !

    So in the normal operation of ScanSnap, Acrobat is just being used to display the PDF file previously created by ScanSnap Manager

    Other applications which can also support image import via command linecan be added to the ScanSnap Manager using the Add/Remove button on the Application tab to perform other processing/handling on the image/PDF.

    Some other applications may support the 'watched' folder method, wherebya specified folder is monitoredby the application on a regular basis, once a new file appears in the folder the application detects its and imports it into its own file structure.

    Note: Fi-4110EOX2 software is known as ScanSnap Monitor, Fi-5110EOX software is known as ScanSnap Manager. For the purposes of this FAQ they are the same software.

    ScanSnap : I've replaced the pads, but the software keeps telling me to replace them.
    As well as replacing the consumable items, i.e. the pad and the pick roller, you must also reset the life counter in the scanner.

    You can do this as follows ...

    Right click on the blue ScanSnap icon in system tray.
    On the popup menu, click on 'Check consumable count'.
    You will now see the counters themselves and the 'Reset' buttons used to clear the counters.

    ScanSnap: I've scanned my documents to PDF files yet when I search for text within Acrobat nothing is found
    ScanSnap Manager Ver 4 or later
    Applies to PC version only

    There are 2 options
    1. Set ScanSnap Manager to create searchable PDF's on the fly, check the option on the File tab of ScanSnap Manager.
    2. Set ScanSnap Organizer to Automatically Convert PDFs into Searchable PDFs. This is the default option for ScanSnap Organizer, Note: It will only convert PDFs which have been created by ScanSnap.

    ScanSnap Manager Ver 3 or earlier
    Applies to PC version only

    ScanSnap Manager software creates an image only type of PDF file, so there is no actual text to be searched for.

    There are 2 options
    1. Set the ScanSnap Managers designated application to'Scan2PDF' rather than Acrobat, this will use the Abbyy FineReader software to create a fully searchable PDF on the fly.
    2. Use the "Recognise Text using OCR" function within Acrobat, this will internally OCR the PDF and store the resultant text within the PDF file for later searching. You would need to do this manually for each PDF file.

    Note : Abbyy FineReader only supplied with European version of ScanSnap
  • April 7, 2005
    ScanSnap: I've set ScanSnap Managers Paper Size to 'Auto Detection' yet it is cutting off the left and right hand sides of the image?
    The scanners auto detection mode measures the length of the page scanned and then looks for the best matching length from a predefined list of paper sizes (Letter, Legal, A4, A5, A6, B5, B6, Post Card, Business card), the scanning width is then set to the width of that paper size rather than the actual size of the paper being scanned.

    In such cases you would need to create a custom paper size to capture the entire document.

    Note: Custom paper sizes are excluded from the list of known paper sizes when in Auto Detection mode, so would still require manual selection

    Applies to PC version only

    Using the ScanSnap Organizer software, you can easily select a scanned PDF to be attached to an email. Just right click on the thumbnail of the PDF to be emailed and select "Attach to E-mail"

    On earlier versions, although not included by default in the ScanSnap software package,it is quite simple to add this function (assuming you are using Microsoft Outlook, it may work with other clients too if they support command line parameters, but we have not tested others)

    Open up the ScanSnap manager software, select the Application tab, press Add/Remove, in the popup window press ADD, in the next window use the Browse button to navigate to your installed copy of Outlook, this would normally be in
    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\OUTLOOK.EXE"
    Assign a name, say "Attach To Email" to this application, and press OK.

    Now when opening up ScanSnap Manager, you will see "Attach To Email" listed in the Application drop down, selecting that and pressing Scan on the scanner will cause your document to be scanned and automatically attached in an open email item ready to send.

    ScanSnap: What filename does ScanSnap give the saved images
    When using ScanSnap Manager 3.1or later (PC version only)
    Checking the "Rename after Scan" checkbox on the Save tab of ScanSnap Manager will prompt you to edit the proposed filename which is automatically created (dependent on the option selected below) as each document is scanned.

    On earlier versions, you can only use one of the following 3 types of naming conventions.
    * Date and time (yyyy_MM_dd_hh_mm_ss)
    For example, when the file is saved in PDF format at 09:00:50 on February, 28, 2003 the following filename is created:
    File name: 2003_02_28_19_00_50.pdf
    * Date and the time (yyyyMMddhhmmss)
    For example, when the file is saved in PDF format at 09:00:50 on February, 28, 2003 the following filename is created:
    File name: 20030228190050.pdf

    ScanSnap: When I start the PC, the message "The session switching notice cannot be received" appears. What does this mean?
    If you are using Windows XP this message may appear under on some systems. Please ignore the above message as it does not affect the scanning operation.

    Windows XP supports multi-logon (which means another user can logon to the PC without the previous user logging off). In that case, "ScanSnap" monitors the duplex/simplex button every 200ms in both users' environments. (Even though the screen displays the current user's status, also the previous user's environment is monitored in the background.)

    When the current user presses the scan button and it is detected by the "ScanSnap Monitor" for the previous user, it may cause some problems

    To avoid this, we have added a window message to the Windows XP-supported version to stop the "ScanSnap! Monitor" for the background user and to activate the current monitor.

    To prevent the message when you switch users, a registration to Windows is required. However, under some systems, the registration process cannot be completed. When the registration process cannot be completed after several retries, the above message is displayed.

    ScanSnap : When using ABBYY Scan2Excel, I am able to edit the cells etc, but if I try to use figures in the cells, i.e. I want sum a series of cells, the result is always 0 (zero).
    When ABBYY OCR converted that document the data was stored as text rather than numbers.

    You can change the way the OCR handles this as follows.
    Find the 'Abbyy FineReader for ScanSnap' entry in the All Programs section of the Windows Start menu, click on that entry to start the program to start the software to allow you to change ABBYY OCR options.

    Select the Scan2Excel tab
    Check the box "Convert numeric values to numbers'
    This will resolve the problem for future scans/OCR

    If you have some previously scanned documents which were OCRed with the wrong setting, you can make a similar conversion as follows.

    1st confirm this is the issue by trying to set the problematic cells to be left aligned, any 'true' numbers will be right aligned at this point. Numbers created by ABBYY OCR without the correct setting of the check box as above will show as left aligned.

    1. Enter the value 1 in an empty cell.
    2. Select the cell and press Ctrl+C.
    3. Select the range of problematic cells.
    4. Choose Paste Special from the Edit menu. Excel displays the Paste Special dialog .
    5.Select the Multiply radio button.
    6. Click on OK.

    This multiplies all the selected cells by 1 and so converts them all to 'true' numbers

    ScanSnap S1500: How to Use the ScanSnap Highlighter feature to create searchable keywords
    ScanSnap S1500 allows operators to convert their scanned PDF files into searchable PDF files either immediately at the point of scanning or afterwards using the included OCR software such as Organizer or Adobe Acrobat. However, some users may prefer to select only a few keywords within the PDF file that can then be searchable later. Using a highlighter pen on a black and white document, operators can convert highlighted text into searchable keywords.
