Scan a drawing and paste it into the raster image


2. If you have more than one Twain-compliant device use File Menu > Acquire > Select Twain Source to select the device you want Scan2CAD to use for scanning. You only need to do this the first time you scan a drawing into Scan2CAD.
3. Select Raster Edit Menu > Paste From > Acquire.

(You can also select File Menu > Tile > Add Tile from Twain Source, which does exactly the same thing.)

Paste From > Acquire starts up your scanner software. Use your scanner software to scan a drawing.

The scanned drawing is pasted into the raster image on the screen.

 The pasted area is outlined in red. If View Menu > Cursor Type > Graphic is selected, the cursor changes to the Move cursor: .

4. You can now do any of the following:
Move, rotate or scale the pasted area.
Complete the paste by clicking the right mouse button and selecting ‘Paste Completed’.

Click to undo.
