How to scan using the ADF in Duplex mode

Applies To

Required Steps: 

To scan with ADF duplex mode, launch Xsane. If the device supports Duplex scanning, you can see source as Duplex or ADFDuplex and set the source as it is selected. Click the ‘Number of pages to scan’ to set the pages to scan from ADF. While scanning, it will scan both sides of the page.

If N : Number of pages to scan (in Xsane), then M number of pages is present in the feeder.

Where M : (N/2) if N is even

: (N+1)/2 if N is odd

To save the scanned images in a single file, select 'Multipage' (Ctrl+M). .
