Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

Just bought a Canon 880F scanner to scan slides, brilliant, but scanning normal documents with Textbridge into Word (acquire text command) is rubbish compared to my dear old CanoScan FB320C - have tried to alter settings in Textbridge, but to no avail. And there seems to be no command to calibrate the scanner, which worked on my old one when I first bought it! Thanks Hilary

I recently bought a Canon PIXMA MX320 all in one printer with my macbook. It works fine, but I can't figure out how to scan an image onto my laptop.


You need to control the scanner through your PC with canon software that came with your scanner otherwise you cant scan anything..first open the printer/scanner software ,select scanner,then place your document and command "scan" from the software.
Good luck, do rate the solution if helped

I am trying to scan a document and it is not working, I have a hp photosmart c4280 printer. How do I install a usb cord


hi
Place the document or image into the scanner for scanning. A scanner with a paper feeder will only receive flat papers and photographs, but a flatbed scanner opens to accommodate books, fabrics and leaves along with flat papers. There is even a attachment for feeding photo slides into flatbed scanners.
  • Step 2 Start the scanning softwaremag-glass_10x10.gif. If the scanner does not engage the software automatically, press the "start" or "scan" button, or click the scanner icon on the computer screen to initialize the software.
  • Step 3 Activate the scan. Click the "file" menu and select "acquire," "import," or another practical choice that applies.
  • Step 4 Preview the item to be scanned. Most scanners have a preview option. This will show the scan area inside dotted lines. The lines can be moved with the mouse to relocate, enlarge or crop the scanning area.
  • Step 5 Set the resolution for images by number of dots per inch (dpi). For computer screen viewing, 100 dpi should suffice. Use 200 to 300 dpi for items to be printed.
  • Step 6 Use the appropriate setting for scanning black and white text. If the scanner does not show a preset for text, use "line art" or "black and white" at 300 dpi. Then use the optical character recognition (OCR) program to convert the image of the text into a file for word processi

    I want to scan a paper and i want to save it as word so that i modify it. How can i do it?


    It depends on if you have the full software installed. The MP160 documentation indicates it came wth ScanSoft OmniPage SE. Open MP Navigator and choose this program, you can output the scan as a text file. If you did a custom install, you may or may not have installed the program. If you omitted the program, do a new custom install.
    OmniPage is an OCR program and will output to a number of formats (you will choose File, Save as) after scanning. Word can import RTF and most other choices as well as .doc files.

    If you don't have the software disc, the software can be obtained from this URL:
    http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=13368

    Alternatively, there is a free OCR program (simpleOCR.com) that will do the same thing. However it doesn't handle text in columns (newspaper or magazines) very well.

    I hope this helps.

    Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


    Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

    How to scan and edit text document


    You must use an OCR (Optical Character Recognition) program

    Run the "ScanSoft OmniPage" software that came with your printer.
    Load the document into the scanner and "acquire" the document through OmniPage.
    The pictures will not show up and the text may not be 100% accurate.
    Run the resulting document into your wordprocessor (MS Word? or Works?), and run spellcheck.

    I cannot find the scans.


    Try using the software provided by canon in your scanner. Set thru that, the path to store the pics at your convenience. Normally if you go to My PC and double click you will see the scanner (icon). Just simply select the icon (left click) and then right click to select the command that you want.

    HOW TO GET FROM 35mm COPYING TO REGULAR COPYING


    Configure your scan buttons in the bottom right corner of your screen (when you click on the scan icon in taskbar). This will help you to go back where you want to be. You may find it easier to use XP's inbuilt scanning facility instead or scan via Photoshop.
