Can I Copy Mixed Sized Documents on a Copier?
Today, there is not that much of a need for copying mixed sized originals, but every now and then we do get someone that needs to enable that feature. The good news is that all digital copiers should have this as a standard feature.
I sell the Ricoh brand of copiers and the mixed size original feature is located in the "special features" ( I think that's it ) on the home screen of the system. It's not a feature that a user will see from the home screen. Users will need to select that feature and then place the documents in the feeder and the press the start button. I'm still amazed at how many customers are still "wowed" by this simple feature. Copying mixed sized originals is not as slow as the analog systems anymore however you do need to allow some additional time since the paper is drawn from different paper trays. Usually if a customer needs this feature we will put it into a program key for easy retrieval.
BTW, for those of you that scan a lot, you can scan mixed sized originals with most of the Ricoh systems.
