    2. Click the down-arrow of the File type drop-down box and select a file type to save the scanned document as.

    3. Click the down-arrow of the Resolution drop-down box and select an image resolution to save the scanned document to.

  5. To allow a user to select scan settings at the scanner and override settings specified for this scan process, select the applicable Allow value override at scanner check box.

  6. Click Verify that these settings will work with your scanner.

  7. In the Validate Scan Ticket Settings dialog box, type the name of the scanners you want to verify setting compatibility with, and then click Start.
