How to Scan Multiple Pages As a Single Document on a Brother MFC

by Steven Symes

Using a Brother MFC printer, you can scan pieces of paper as well as other relatively flat objects, such as books. The printer sends the scanned images to the attached computer, where you can adjust the scanned document before finally saving it to the computer's hard drive. Your printer may be equipped with an automatic document feeder, a paper feed tray located on the top of the printer. You can scan multiple pages to form a single document using either the automatic document feeder or by placing the pages directly onto the printer's scanner glass.

Automatic Document Feeder

Turn on the Brother MFC and the attached computer. Unfold the document support flap on the top of the printer.

Load up to 35 pages face up in the document feeder. Move the paper guides so they are against the margins of the paper.

Press the "Scan" button on the printer's control panel.

Flatbed Scanner

Turn on the Brother MFC and the attached computer. Open up the lid on the top of the printer, exposing the scanning glass.

Place a single sheet of paper face down on the scanning glass. Close the printer's lid.

Press the "Scan" button on the printer's control panel. Click on "Continue" on the computer's screen to indicate you want to scan another paper.

Continue clicking "Continue" after each page scan until you have completed scanning the entire document. Click "Finish" to save all the pages as a single document.
