Check this hasn’t been put into ‘Disabled Items’ through File – Options – Add-Ins – Disabled Items. If shown in the disabled box, you should be able to highlight this and select ‘Enable’. You may have to re-launch the Office application for this to take effect.


Q. How do I get the ‘Move’ function in Invu?

This is a Privilege and you would have to ask your Invu Administrator to allow this within the Privilege Preset’s. Once this has been added to your user, you will then see the ‘Move’ option when right clicking on a document. Documents can be moved to different folders rather than re-file & saved, but the Information Types need to be mirrored by both folders for this to be successful.


Q. How to add a new scanning preset into the system?

You will have to ask your Invu Administrator to add a new preset into Invu. They will need to log into Invu as the Admin of your PC, go into Administration – Scanning – Create A Scanner Preset. You can then name your new scanning preset ie. Colour Duplex. You will need to browse to your scanner before you can set this up. Once you have done that you can then chose the options such as single or multi page, colour options and whether this is duplex or single sided. This will be saved and available to use.


Q. When scanning I receive the message ‘cannot open document’
