Chapter 5 Imaging Preferences
You can program the digital scanner to perform various functions, or activate different features. This chapter
describes imaging preference features and provides programming bar codes for selecting these features.
The digital scanner ships with the settings in Imaging Preferences Parameter Defaults on page 5-2 (also see
Appendix A, Standard Default Parameters for all host device and miscellaneous defaults). If the default values suit
requirements, programming is not necessary.
To set feature values, scan a single bar code or a short bar code sequence. The settings are stored in non-volatile
memory and are preserved even when you power down the digital scanner.
If not using a USB cable, select a host type after the power-up beeps sound. See Chapter 6, USB Interface and
Chapter 7, RS-232 Interface for specific host information. This is only necessary upon the first power-up when
connecting to a new host.
To return all features to default values, scan the Set Default Parameter on page 4-4. Throughout the programming
bar code menus, asterisks (*) indicate default values.
NOTE Only the Symbol Native API (SNAPI) with Imaging interface supports image capture. See USB Device
Type on page 6-4 to enable this host.
NOTE Most computer monitors allow scanning the bar codes directly on the screen. When scanning from the
screen, be sure to set the document magnification to a level where you can see the bar code clearly, and
bars and/or spaces are not merging.
