Scan program dialog
Insert your original document in the scanner. If you click the Preview
button, the image will be quickly scanned and displayed in the preview
window. The scan software will automatically identify the image margins and
mark them with a dashed line that is sometimes referred to as the selection
frame or marquee. You can resize the selection frame by hovering the mouse
above it and then clicking and dragging the dotted line until you've selected
the area of the image you want to scan.
