How to break up large scan jobs into individual documents


  • Can I break apart large scan jobs that might have more than one document in them?
  • How do I separate scanned documents when scanning on PaperCut.


When scanning documents on a PaperCut device, you may want to break up PDFs into individual documents so they appears as different files at the final destination, either email, OneDrive, Teams, SharePoint, etc.


Most scan destinations, except for scanning to email and those departments who have asked to have the feature turned off, are configured to separate documents when scanned as PDFs. In order for PaperCut to determine the separation of documents, you need to insert a blank page in between each document. Once the blank page is detected, PaperCut will split the PDF and start a new one. Each document will be processed and delivered separately.
