Document Scanner: how to force the border of pictures?

Document Scanner: how to force the border of pictures?

impallo
Explorer | Level 3

The instructions for Document Scanner on iOS say:

”Scan a document

  1. Open the Dropbox app on your iOS device.
  2. Tap "+" (plus).
  3. Choose Scan Document.
    • ==> Take a picture of content you want to transform into a document.
    • Or, select an existing image in your Camera Roll.
  4. If you choose to take a picture, point your camera at the object you want to scan. A border outlines the shape you’re scanning”.

 

MY QUESTION:

How can i decide the BORDER myself, rather than letting him decide the shape for me?

Also, i would like to decide myself if i want a PORTRAIT or LANSCAPE orientation, preventing him from rotating my screen.

Too much intelligent like it is the scanner , that’s totally useless.

He decides everything for me, and does not allow me to scan the correct image 😩

I am sure there should be a way to take the exact picture i need.

Can you please help me to do it? Thank you.

There is no such option. Dropbox determines the shape of the document you're scanning.


... preventing him from rotating my screen.

That's controlled by your device; not Dropbox. Use the option in iOS to lock the rotation of your screen.
