Could say how you are using the scanner? I have the MG6150, but like John I normally use WIA support in Photoshop.
I've tried to replicate your problem,but without much success. When using the "One Click" option, then "Save to PC" with "Use the Scanner Driver" selected you do get the full menu for adjusting the scan if you select "Advanced Mode"
You can deselect Auto Crop by going to "Preferences" bottom of the "Advanced Mode"
You don't say how you are getting the image into Word are you scanning direct or by pasting.
I've just spent 1/2 hour having a look at this problem and find if I scan direct into Word 2007 the scanner software comes up. Here by selecting the "Advanced Mode" I can select/adjust all the parameters and also manually adjust the crop lines accordingly.
mordddwyd. I hope you forgive me asking a supplementary question of hssutton?
I have a Canon MP 640, a 8800f and PS5. I have 32 and 64 bit installed. I like the TWAIN interface which only works in 32 bit, and also stops the "file/automate/batch" command in 32 bit. If I select the WIA method I cannot find the advanced option which allows, for example, the scan resolution; I like to scan small photos at 600dpi. Adobe reccomend uninstalling TWAIN, but I want to keep its detailed controls. Sorry again for intruding! Hope you solve your problem.
hssutton. Thanks. What I do is to scan in 32 bit using TWAIN and if I want to use the Scan Automate Batch command, I switch to the 64 bit version as Adobe updates (I think relatively recently) have caused a clash in 32 bit whereby with the TWAIN plug in installed, the programme crashes when you try to run the batch command. This is discussed in various forums and Adobe seen to blame everyone but themselves for the problem!When I contacted Adobe they only suggested uninstalling TWAIN. Cheers JB
