Question

How do I change the focus method used for scanning a region of interest?

Answer

You can change the focus method used on a scan-by-scan basis. You can also set the default focus method used for subsequent scans (this may be preferred if you have focus method that you use most often).

Setting the Focus Method

  2. Once the slide has loaded you are ready to select the region (or regions) to scan, the filter settings, and the focus method to use.
  3. Select the focus method to use for the scan (as shown).

Setting the Default Focus Method

  4. Be sure to click the Save and Exit button in the bottom right corner of the dialog to save your changes.
