Asked by Norm Happ

I am using Simple Scan with and HP All-in-One 6500 and Linux Mint 13. All of my scan pages come out with legal size even though I have the preferences set to letter.

You might try asking your question on Questions posted here are about creating the Ubuntu Manual.

A potential workaround would be to crop the page after it's been scanned. Select Page > Crop > Letter, and then drag the selection to cover the area you wish to keep.

Thank you. I have tried cropping, but did not get satisfactory results. It has been a while. Forget the details. I will try
