lines are just outside of the registration marks.

7. Scanned Image Preview
This shows exactly what the scanned image looks like in the computer. Different scanners will produce a slightly
different image; and most likely the margins will not look the same as the actual document. That is the reason
that this calibration process is important. You need to adjust the margins so that the registration marks are
tightly bounded by the red lines.

Calibrate the Answer Document—
Use the registration Mark Margin Arrows to bring the red perforated line in to ―hug‖ the
registration marks (T-marks)
The red perforated line should be as close to the T-marks as
possible without touching them.
The T-marks may be uneven on the page. This is okay as
long as the red line is as close to the nearest T-mark on each
of the margins.
