Problems reported when scanning documents on Xerox devices

Thu, 2013-12-19 14:28

It has been reported over the last few months that scanning documents on Xerox machines may generate PDF documents where numbers may be incorrectly transferred from the original document. After testing, it appears that the issue is not affecting the uPrint machines installed at McGill, as these machines are set up differently than on the machines where the problem was discovered. However, as a precautionary measure, we have asked Xerox to install a patch on all campus uPrint machines in order to prevent this problem from occurring.
