This article provides information on using the Auto Scan function of IJ Scan Utility Lite for macOS.


Auto Scan allows for automatic detection of the type of the item placed on the platen (scanner glass) or ADF (Auto Document Feeder).

 This function is not supported depending on your model.

 The following types of items may not be scanned correctly. In that case, adjust the cropping frames (selection boxes; scan areas) in the screen displayed by clicking Driver in the IJ Scan Utility Lite main screen, and then scan again.

  • Photos with a whitish background

  • Items printed on white paper, hand-written text, business cards, and other unclear items

  • Thin items

  • Thick items

 ​When scanning two or more documents from the ADF, place documents of the same size.
  1. Check that scanner or printer is turned on.

  2. Place items on the platen or in the ADF.

  3. Start IJ Scan Utility Lite.

  4. Click Auto.

    Click Auto (outlined in red)

    Scanning starts.

 To cancel the scan, click Cancel.

 Use the Settings (Auto Scan) dialog to set where to save the scanned images and to make advanced scan settings.
