I scan every piece of paper in our house into my "virtual filing cabinet." Most things work nice. But when I get a really long document, it usually cuts off the end of it when I feed it through the feeder. It's because it's configured to scan in 8.5x14 papers. I wish I had a program that would allow me to scan in 8.5 x infinity papers. It would just keep scanning until the paper finishes feeding and make the virtual page in the computer that length. Any ideas or suggestions?

Can't be done because the vertical travel of the scanning head/lamp is limited to 14-inches. It has nothing to do with the sheet feeder.

They use to be faxs that kept scanning but was impossible to display properly. What is needed is automatic paging.

When I've had the odd one like that I've found the only solution is to cut the document into A4 lengths - I save everything as a pdf so when the final file is created it ends up as a complete document again.

I'm not sure why it's not possible because head lamp is only 14 inches? I'd understand if I was using the flatbed scanner part of it, but I'm using the document feeder. There is no physical limit. It has to be a logical limit.
