What if my page is on legal size paper?

On the Driver Configuration Basic tab, select Page Size. Choose legal - 8.5 x 14 in.

What do I do if the pages are out of order?

If all of the pages use the same setting, delete the batch and re-scan. Otherwise you must wait until after the indexing is complete and reorder.

Copy those pages out to a batch, unless you plan to re-scan them. Use the section Separate an Entire Stack Indexed as One Document in Error.

See the section on how to Separate an Entire Stack Indexed as One Document in Error. These instructions provide information for copying pages to a batch for indexing and how to delete said pages.
