The Precisionscan software defaults to 8 1/2 by 14 paper size even when the user selects a custom setting. Is there an .ini file or registry setting that can be altered to fix this? Or should I begin searching for an alternative scanning software application? We are using an HP Scanjet 6300c in this case. Thank you.

In any case, there is a bulletin on HP's
site regarding the page length challenge. You may have to search more than one way (different key words) to find all bulletins.
I think it uses the approach of getting something into the PPro window by previewing a piece of paper of the size you want (scan the bed) then selecting an area to match the paper (put cursor in very top left corner while ensuring cross-hairs show not arrow(s) then
moving it right and down to the size you want). Then save that as a Setting, and Load the setting for each job. Yes, HP writes clunky software! (But it could be worse - and the basic version of Precisionscan is.)
An alternate when using Acrobat is simply to crop all pages when you have finished. (Document|Crop)
