Is there a way to scan in a text document with a flatbed scanner, and then have the file immediately print to a separate printer? I could open the scan utility and scan and individuality save each file, however that would take a long time with the hundreds of documents I would like to copy. Is there any way to automate the process at all? For example all I would do is press a button and the file is temporarily scanned into the computer, and then sent to my laser printer. Kind of how an all in one copy/printer unit works.
thanks.

To a separate printer? Probably... but why wouldn't you just use a copier?
The idea was so I could use a laser printer instead of having to use my expensive inkjet copier with the several hundred copies I will need to make.:p

Check to see if your scanner utilities include a "scan to print" option. My sheet scanner (Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500M) has a several scanning options... and one is "scan to printer".

My flatbed scanner is part of a MFD color laser, and the copy function is integrated into the unit.
