Cannon DR1210C Scanner - using BOTH flatbed AND feeder

I have a DR1210C scanner where the scanner software seems to only use one OR the other source for looking for items to scan.  How can the user choose which to scan from?

With this model it is "either or" if the feeder lid is open then the scanner should use that - if it is down it works as a simple flatbed.
There isn't really a software option to switch. In the Scanner (Capture Perfect) properties you can force "Flatbed" as the source but if you set the source to "Auto" then if there is nothing on the platten the feeder is used.
