    I have a four metre long electrical drawing on paper. It is 30cm wide. Can I scan it and stoor it on my PC. The paper fades after a few years. What program should I have for this?

    My laptop use Windows Xp home and MS office 2003.

    I would try using a good digital camera and see what one can get with it.

    I had a similar problem many years ago and I bought a scanning head for my old line printer.
    Mine was a lower width at nine inches, but I suspect there would be similar device for a ProPrinter at 14+ inches.
