HP ScanJet - How to delete blank pages and separate pages into multiple documents

Use the Adjust documents setting in the Document tab of the HP Scan software to delete blank pages and separate pages into multiple documents.

Delete blank pages

When Delete blank pages is enabled, scanned pages are evaluated for content. Pages detected as blank show up in the viewer with a delete notation on them. These detected blank pages are deleted during the final operation and are not sent to the destination.
note:
This setting is only available as a scan setting. It cannot be adjusted after the scan.
Enable delete blank pages by selecting Delete blank pages in the Adjust documents dialog box. The sensitivity slider under the Sensitivity heading determines how “blank” a page must be in order to be detected and deleted. At the lower end of the slider, more pages are detected as blank and deleted. At the upper end of the slider, pages must be almost completely blank to be detected and deleted. The sensitivity value can be set by adjusting the slider, entering a value, or using the arrow buttons to adjust the value.

Thumbnail displays

Note the following considerations related to separator thumbnails in the thumbnail display:
  • Page size and page number are not displayed when a separator thumbnail is selected.
  • A separator thumbnail may be moved left or right and deleted or undeleted. However, it cannot be rotated.
  • Double-click and zoom are not supported on separator thumbnails.
  • When moving or dragging and dropping separator and non-separator thumbnails, make sure that two separator thumbnails do not come close to each other.

After each blank page separator thumbnails

When After each blank page is selected, the thumbnail display after the scan shows separator thumbnails following each blank page.
