11566: Using the Scanners Interface with Drake Documents

Drake Documents

Using a Scanner's Interface with Drake Documents.

When Drake Documents (previously Drake Document Manager or DDM) requests a document from a scanner, the software uses the scanner driver’s default settings and does not try to change them. If you would like to choose the settings your scanner will use, in Drake Documents go to Setup > Options and un-check the box labeled Turn off scanner interface. Save any changes when you leave the screen. 

From this point when you scan a new document from Drake Documents, an interface for your scanner will appear and you can manually set parameters such as paper size, dots-per-inch, color quality, etc. The parameters available will vary according to scanner make and model, since the driver is provided by the manufacturer of your scanner and not by Drake Software.
