The Epson scanner next to the photocopier.
So I know how to get it to scan
but
I can't get it to scan the whole thing.
It seems to want to scan a small section in the corner
which isn't big enough for what I wish to scan.
I imagine this is a simple fix somewhere in 'preferences' or such
but I can't find it.
So, anyone know?

that scanner is great. in gimp, use 'Xsane', then i think just drag the box in the window to the size you want right?

there is no window to drag a box into
just an option box
there's a SCAN button
but nowhere on it can I see means to change the scan parameter.

nah can't do it.
if you're in forest next
any chance you can dabble it so it scans whole as a default setting or something.
