However, today I encountered an unexpected issue: skewed pages 🙁 Portions of the page would scan straight and then a section of text would be wildly skewed. This was scanning a nearly 30 year old document with alternating thick and then pages. I am not sure exactly what was throwing off the scanning, but thankfully I did find a setting that resolved the issue!

Here are the steps to fix skewing on the ScanSnap software:

  • Right click the ScanSnap icon in the notification area of the taskbar
  • Select Scan Button Settings
  • Under the Scanning tab, select Option
  • Check the ‘Deskew by text on document’
  • Press OK, Press OK again

Commence scanning! 🙂
