In the Settings (COPY) dialog, you can specify how to respond when printing images on a printer after scanning them using the scanner button.

 Selectable paper sizes and types vary by printer.

 When multiple items are placed on the platen and Auto is selected for Source Type, each item is scanned individually and printed on a separate sheet of paper. To print multiple items on one sheet of paper, select an option other than Auto and select a standard size (A4, Letter, etc.) for Original Size.

 Reflective disc labels may not be scanned as expected.

 Place items correctly according to the type of item to be scanned. Otherwise, items may not be scanned correctly.
