Scan area or page size as DIN A4 to PDF?
With older scanners, which scan for example not in Din A4 range, it is difficult to reach the scan area or page size of the PDF DIN A4!
For this reason, you can make the following settings in WinScan2PDF:
Menu ► Options ► PDF ► change to A4
This is then the page size of the output PDF file.
Menu ► Options ► Picture ► Crop to the page
This option cuts off the excess area
If you enlarge the WinScan2PDF window, you can see the cut in the preview ;-)
The whole thing is possible from version 3.77!
Please use ... always the latest version of WinScan2PDF!

I want to scan an area of newspaper on screen and save asPDF. Have looked at Win scan but cannot see how I can do this. Can you offer any help in this please!
I like your lean program very well and it works as described. That's exactly what I was looking for. I mainly scan multi-page documents. However, the scan area is approx. 1cm wider and approx. 2cm longer than DIN A4. No matter what page size I set, in the .pdf is always the entire scanner surface and not just the DIN A4 page. (Of course you can always preview in the opening scanner menu, then crop and then scan is too time-consuming for many pages.) It is also a pity that the scanner menu restarts each page in the default setting and the prefix made, for example. black / white must be freshly selected on each side.
