Re: scanning

In reply to: printer problem

Most likely, this is some setting in the scanning software. But as I don't have a Lexmark scanner, I can't tell you which one. Uninstalling and reinstalling the software won't harm, but I don't expect it to help. But it's worth a try.

The obvious workaround is to use File>Save in the photoediting program. A minor nuisance, unless you do hundreds of scans.
