5. ScanSharp® and your Scanner (Hardware)
5.1.
TWAIN Interface
ScanSharp® uses the TWAIN interface to interact with your scanner. As long as your scanner supports
the standard TWAIN interface, you should be able to use ScanSharp® with your scanner. You can find out
if your scanner supports the standard TWAIN interface by going to the Scanner Manufacturer’s website. If
you have purchased your scanner with us, you can rest assured that our scanners fully support the
standard TWAIN interface and will work with ScanSharp®, especially DocketPORT® and EcoScan®.
5.2.
Scanner (Hardware) Maintenance
Your scanner from time to time may require calibration or cleaning depending on the model of scanner
that you purchased. Please read the sections below to learn more about the maintenance that your
scanner may require.
Calibrating your scanner
Not all scanners require calibration. Calibration will help the scanner more accurately identify the color
variance on the images scanned which will result in crisp, clear images. For the scanners that support
calibration, it is recommended that you run calibration every 6 months. Scanners that need calibration will
often show long straight lines running down the length of their scan results. If you have purchased your
scanner with us, you can rest assured that our scanners fully support the calibration feature. However,
EcoScan ADF (Automatic Document Feed) scanners calibrate automatically and require no calibration.
You can calibrate your scanner by clicking on the “Calibrate” button to start the calibration process. Insert
the calibration paper as required. The calibration sheets, which come with the scanners, are white sheets
of paper with black bars on both sides. If you lose your calibration sheets you can use a white sheet of
paper, but it is better to buy replacements, if possible. Calibration sheets can be ordered at
www.inuvio.com/store.
Cleaning your scanner
Not all scanners support cleaning. The cleaning feature allows you the clean the faceplate and rollers on
the scanner when necessary. In time all scanners will get dirty. For example, you may notice some dark
lines on scans or the scanner having trouble with minor paper jams or paper feed issues. You can find out
if your scanner supports the cleaning feature by going to the Scanner Manufacturer’s website. If you have
purchased your scanner with us, you can rest assured that our scanners fully support the cleaning feature.

To initiate the cleaning feature with the scanner we have sold you, apply just a little isopropyl alcohol and
spread it out on the white porous sheet (cleaning paper) that came with your scanner. Click on the “Clean”
button to start the cleaning process. Insert the cleaning paper as required. Cleaning sheets can be
ordered at www.inuvio.com/store.
6. Configuration
6.1.
User Interface Explained
After you set up ScanSharp® for first use, you will next encounter the main scanning screen as pictured
below:
6.1.1. Directory Explorer

Version 1.0
December 29, 2011
This is the directory explorer in ScanSharp®. Using the directory explorer, you can select a folder to view
your scanned, merged, or imported files.
When you click on a folder and the folder becomes highlighted, ScanSharp® will look for any files in the
selected folder that have been scanned, merged, or imported into ScanSharp®. If files are found,
ScanSharp® will put them into thumbnail form into the file viewer. When you scan images or import them,
they will be saved into the default directory that you have selected in configuarion.
6.1.2. Image Viewer
The Image Viewer is useful when there are two or more images in a scan scheme, and you wish to save,
rotate, or print a specific image. Additionally, the Image Viewer is used when you wish to save, rotate, or
print the selected image.

6.1.3. Scanner Selection
At the top of the main screen, you will see “File” and then a “Select Scanner” dropdown box from which
you can select the currently used scanner. Next to it is the “Options” dropdown, from which you can
configure some settings, such as Image, Output, Header & Footer, Print and more. From the Options
menu, you may also choose to calibrate or clean your scanner. The buttons directly below these menus
allow you to manually scan, (if auto-scan is disabled), file, print, calibrate, clean, change settings, and ask
for help.
When you load ScanSharp®, the configurations will populate a list of available TWAIN drivers for your
machine. After you click the dropdown and select your scanner and ScanSharp® will automatically try to
detect the scanner you have selected. If you do not see your scanner in the Scanner list, and we have
provided you with your scanner, please refer to the CD that came with the scanner or visit our site at

Configuration Settings
In order to make sure that the unprocessed data delivered by the scanner to ScanSharp® is accurate and
clear, it is important to make sure that your scanner has been configured properly.
By clicking the Settings Button (the one with 3 little gears on it) in the toolbar, you will open the
configuration dialog. Here you may set a number of properties essential to proper scanning.

December 29, 2011
Auto-Scan Delay
This property will indicate to ScanSharp® that the scanner is to wait until a document is detected in the
device, and then wait a configurable number of seconds before automatically scanning the document. The
default value is 0.5 second, but newer users may choose to have the program wait 2 or 3 seconds in order
to make sure the documents go straight through the scanner.
Disable Duplex Scanning
Duplex scanning can be disabled for duplex scanners in order to get single sided scans as desired. Check
“Disable Duplex Scanning” to scan only one image at a time (for example, business cards usually only
have 1 side with information).
Timeout Delay
If, during the middle of a scan, a certain number of seconds pass without a new image being scanned, the
program will determine that the scheme has been prematurely terminated and complete it as is. This
setting can be changed under Timeout Delay.
Scanning Mode
You may choose to scan in Color, Grayscale, or Black and White.
Color
Selecting color, you can expect scans to take slightly longer and result in larger file sizes, but having much
higher quality.
Grayscale
Selecting grayscale, you can expect scans to come in white and different shades of gray. The image sizes
are smaller than a color scan but the quality is also lower.

Page 16 of 27
ScanSharp 6 User Manual
Version 1.0
December 29, 2011
Black and White
Selecting black and white, you can expect scans to come only in black and white. The image size would
be slightly smaller than that of grayscale images, but the quality would be significantly lower.
DPI
DPI stands for Dots Per Inch. This setting controls the resolution of the scanned images. The higher the
resolution, the higher the quality of the image, but it also increases the size of the file. We recommend 150
DPI because we believe it gives the best balance of quality and file size.
Scan Size / Width and Height
This tells ScanSharp® the size of the document you intend to scan. There are many pre-defined
selections, but you may choose your own by selecting custom. You may also choose to keep the default
option, “Auto detect size”, which will allow ScanSharp® to make this decision automatically for each
document.
ADVANCED - Sides to Scan
This property tells ScanSharp how many images will be read by the scanner before applying Post-Actions.
If your device is set to scan in duplex, (both sides) each pass through the scanner counts as two sides.
ADVANCED - Brightness
Brightness, simply, is a measure of how light an image will appear after being scanned in. By default, this
value is zero, but if your image comes in too dark, you may adjust it by increasing this property.
6.2.1. Image Concatenation
By default, ScanSharp® will concatenate 2 scans into a single image (front and back into one image).
When this item is checked, ScanSharp® will know to combine all of the images from the completed scan
into one image. You may choose the order in which they are placed relative to each other and whether
they will be “Vertical” or “Horizontal” based on the Concatenation Style selection you make in the
configuration screen.

ScanSharp® can be configured to suit almost any need for scanning. ScanSharp® has many settings that
can be switched between on the fly as needed. Settings define ScanSharp®’s scanning flexibility.
7. Scanning
7.1.
Usage Example
Here, we illustrate a common way to use ScanSharp® Scanning Mode. In this example, we scan the front
and back side of an insurance card and save the image in a location for image retrieval.
1. Attach a scanner to your computer, make sure that scanner’s driver has been installed, and Launch
ScanSharp®.
Tip: Make sure that the scanner is connected by checking the scanners listed in the dropdown menu
under File and Select Scanner. If your scanner is installed and connected you will see if listed in this drop
down menu. If not, you need to install and/or connect your desired scanner. Your scanner may also have
a little green LED light on top of it which will light up when the drivers are installed and the scanner is
connected properly.
2. Go to the configuration screen found under Options and Configurations and make sure that your
desired settings are selected.
3. Scan a card with your scanner. If auto scan is on (the scanner icon in the top left will be grayed out), the
scanner will start scanning automatically. Otherwise, click the scanner icon to start the scanning process.
If you have a simplex scanner, a second scan will be necessary to capture the back side of the card. After
scanning, you should see a list of new images in ScanSharp® as pictured below.
4. Ideally you are using all the automated features of ScanSharp® and the image is scanned, cropped,
merged, saved and named automatically for you. Your image is now created and is ready to be saved to
your selected target destination drive on your computer or server for your use such as importation into
your database software. ScanSharp® makes it fast and easy to scan images and documents.
7.2.
Auto-Scan

Page 18 of 27
ScanSharp 6 User Manual
Version 1.0
December 29, 2011
By default ScanSharp® is set to “auto-scan” meaning that your selected scanning hardware will sense
when an item is inserted into the scanner opening and beginning scanning automatically. You can turn
auto scan off under Options and AutoScan at the top of the application by unchecking AutoScan as
pictured below.
You can set the time between scans or auto scan delay in the main configuration panel.
7.3.
Save & Email
The “Save & Email” feature allows you to save the current scanned image on the main screen and email it
at the same time. Save & Email can be found under File at the top of the application.
7.4.

Page 19 of 27
ScanSharp 6 User Manual
Version 1.0
December 29, 2011
ScanSharp® features an automated live update system geared towards limited user interaction. With
updates enabled, ScanSharp® will search for new updates or apply existing updates prior to ScanSharp®
executing. If there are no existing updates, ScanSharp® will finish starting up and download any available
updates in the background. The LiveUpdate system will notify the user when updates are found and when
updates will be applied on restart.
Software updates are important and must be carefully considered when installing. We have provided an
application called “ScanSharp LiveUpdate” which is used to check the INUVIO Server for available
updates. The ScanSharp LiveUpdate is very useful in that it can give you feedback on the download
process. Because the service utilizes the BITS (Background Intelligence Transfer Service) provided by
Microsoft, updates will download much like Microsoft Windows receives updates.
If you wish to simply exit from the service but continue the download process, click “Exit”. Use “Restart” to
re-launch after shutting down ScanSharp® in order to apply the available updates. Click “Cancel
Downloads” if you wish to stop all the new updates from downloading, including those completed but not
yet applied.
7.5.
Header & Footer
The Header & Footer configuration setting allows you superimpose a label above, below and/or on top of a
completed image. These labels become a part of the final image. Check the header, footer or
superimpose text boxes to enable watermarking and then enter your message in the open field.

Font
The fonts available on the computer running ScanSharp will be available in the Font menu - along with
options to set the font color, size, and opacity (higher opacity will result in darker text).
Header, Footer and Superimposed Text
For each of these, you may choose to display the available watermarks:
 Static Text – Custom text entered by the user.
 Time Stamp – Time when the scanned image is saved.
 File Name – The filename (e.g. file.jpg) once the image is saved.
 File Path – The file path (the directory and filename, e.g. C:\My ScanSharp\file.jpg) once the
image is saved.
 File Directory – The file directory (the directory without the filename, e.g. C:\My ScanSharp\)
once the image is saved.
7.6.
Output Settings
The Output settings control how the final image is stored. When a scan is finished the image is then saved
according to the Output Settings.
7.6.1. Save to Location
The Save to Location option saves the final image to the hard drive.
Location
The location is the default file path that will be used when saving the final image. If you click the “…”
button to the right of the Location box, you can browse your local machine or network for a directory to
select.
7.6.2. Save to FTP

that the user provide the information needed to log on to the server as well as the file name settings
similar to the ones listed in Save to File.
7.6.3. File Naming
File Naming
Fixed Filename – If you selected the Fixed option, the filename of your images will be the same name
each time, overwriting any previous saves.
Ascending Filename – If you selected the Ascending option, the filename of your images will begin with
the filename you specified in the Filename box and end with an ascending number from the Ascending
Filename Number box. No overwriting occurs in this setting and is ideal for batch scanning.
Timestamp – If you selected the Timestamp option, the filename of your images will be the exact date and
time when they were created.
Image-Type
This setting determines the format of the final image. If you are importing this image into another system,
you will want to make sure what formats your software supports. Color and grayscale images saved as
JPGs will produce compact file sizes. Black and white images saved as TIFs will have the smallest file
sizes, but have lower quality. BMPs produce a more detailed, but larger file size. ScanSharp® supports 6
file types: BMP, GIF, JPG, PDF, PNG, and TIF.
8. ADF Support
ScanSharp® will accommodate multi-page document scanning in offices. This mode will support a
Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) scanner (hardware) to quickly scan multi-page documents.

Frequently Asked Questions
10.1. Troubleshooting Scanner (Hardware) Issues
Question: Scans have either: red or purple tinge, extra dark area, horizontal or vertical lines.
Answer: Your scanner may need to be calibrated and/or cleaned. Please make sure you are logged on as
the system administrator. Select the calibrate button and insert the calibration sheet. The scanner should
pull in the calibration paper and the sheet should slide back and forth through the scanner before coming
back out. ScanSharp® will inform you of the calibration status. Similarly for cleaning, select the clean
button and insert the cleaning paper and press ok. ScanSharp® will inform you of the clean status. We
recommend that you calibrate and clean your scanners at least every 6 months to ensure quality scans.
Question: Scanner not connected properly or not powered on.
Answer: DocketPORT and EcoScan® scanners ship with a 5ft USB cable. Longer cords may cause
power issues and can cause the scanner to lose connection. The USB port could also be part of the
problem. Try switching USB ports or disconnecting other USB devices to see if the problem persists. If
your scanner worked at the beginning of the day and stopped working after you left your computer
inactive, the problem may be Windows power saving in the USB ports. To turn power saving off, go to
Start -> Run, type in devmgmt.msc and press ok. Expand “Universal Serial Bus controllers”. For each
device named “USB Root Hub”, right click, select Properties. Go to the Power Management tab and
uncheck the box that says “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”.
Question: Why does my scanner make noise but doesn’t pull in the item to be scanned.
Answer: If your scanner is making noise when you attempt to scan but does not pull in the document, the
problem could be with the rollers inside the scanner. After time, the scanner’s rollers may become
damaged or dirty. Sometimes the problem could as simple as the scanner not catching the document right
away. You may need to guide the document through during the beginning of the scan.
Question: Why does my scanner fail to scan?
Solution: There are a few possible problems that could be occurring. First, you want to make sure that
the scanner is securely connected to the computer. Then you want to go to the device manager and make
sure that the scanner is recognized by the computer. To go to the device manager go to Start -> Run and
type in devmgmt.msc and press ok (Windows XP only). The scanner will usually be listed under Imaging
Devices. If Imaging Devices does not exist or the scanner is located in Other Devices with a error icon
over it, you will need to reinstall the drivers for the scanner. The drivers can be found at our website,
www.inuvio.com/service. Make sure you are logged in an as administrator before installing the new
drivers. If the scanner’s drivers are installed correctly but the computer still fails to recognize the device as
the correct scanner, then a failure in the scanner’s chip is probable and the scanner will need to be
replaced.

10.2. Troubleshooting Software (ScanSharp®) Issues
Question: Why does ScanSharp® get an error during startup?
Answer: Usually, customers have this problem when they have installed ScanSharp® using a nonadministrator account. However, it could be possible that one of ScanSharp’s critical files has been
corrupted. If you uninstall ScanSharp® and reinstall using your CD and still have the same issues, then
you may need the latest version of ScanSharp®. Please contact our technical support to obtain the link for
the latest version of ScanSharp® at support@inuvio.com.
Question: Why are scanned images not saved at the location I specified?
Answer: If images are not being saved at the location or the previous image is not being replaced, then
there may be a problem with the file permissions. Sometimes the problem can be solved by manually
deleting the previous file. However if that does not solve the problem, you may not have the rights on your
computer to delete files. If you are not logged in as the system administrator, then please contact the
system administrator to make sure you have access to delete and modify files in that folder.
Question: How can I rename a file before I save it?
Answer: By default, ScanSharp® will save the filename as Image.jpg. However if you would like to
change the save settings, go to the configuration and select the Output Settings tab of the Configuration
window. Make sure Save to Location is selected. You can change the way ScanSharp® names and saves
files in the File Naming section of this tab.
Question: How do I change scanners?
Answer: You can select from a list of supported scanners under File Select Scanner.
Question: Why does my software not start up when my computer boots up?
Answer: Make sure that ScanSharp® is in the Startup folder by going to Start -> Programs -> Startup. If it
is not, make a shortcut of ScanSharp® and drag it into the Startup folder.
Question: How can I change the concatenation styles?
Answer: After you have set your configuration, ScanSharp® will concatenate all scanned images into one
image. To change the order the images are concatenated, go to configurations and press the “Advanced”
button and then choose the desired configuration mode.
