Word docs sent as email attachments are arriving in my inbox as png files - useless. How do I change this please


.PNG stands for "Portable Network Graphics". Sounds like the sender may have scanned the document, and sent the scanned document to you? Scans will come out as either .png, .jpg, or .pdf formats.

If the file is a .png, you won't be able to edit in MS Word.

Another thing to check - Make sure when you are working on a Word Document, you are saving it as a .doc file.

  • Open MS Word Document
  • Do your editing
  • Click on the "Fille" button, and then select "save as" option
  • In the window that appears, next to the "save as type" wording click on the down triangle to see different formats to save. Select ".doc"
Bottom line... tell whomever is sending the emails with attachments, to send you the MS Word file, not a scanned file.

I need to scan and email a photo. How do I do that? hp officejet 4580


  1. Put the document you wish to scan face-down on the glass. Use the alignment markers to help you square up the object. These are usually found on the left-hand edge of the scanning area.
  2. Close the printer's document lid slowly so the document does not shift position.
  3. Select a scan resolution. The higher the dpi (dots per inch) count, the sharper and more detailed the image.
  4. Push the scan button. You may have to do this on the printer itself or on your computer.
  5. Check the preview of your scan on your computer. Depending on your all-in-one printer and software, you may have to prompt your computer to display the preview for you.
  6. Edit the image as it appears on your computer if you want to make changes. Your scanning software might let you enlarge, resize or otherwise manipulate the final product.
  7. Accept the scan and save. Return the original document to a safe location.

I want to scan a form in and type info in certain spaces, and only print out the items I type in. Is this possible


This is not possible with a scanned .jpeg or any scanned format.

You must convert the scanned image or document into a PDF file. You can use this free program to do so.

Once this is done, you must make the PDF editable. You can do this using this free website.

I have a Lexmark 8300 most funtions work well from time to time scanning is an issue however OCR funtion WILL NOT WORK. I have the Instal CD, it seams to instal but can not use the function. I am running...


You must have a WORD TYPE program to save the scan too. I had this same problem until I installed Microsoft Office 2003 as well. It has been awhile but that is the case and mine now works perfect. You can get a free download of it for trial use. Or even an open source word program will work. If it ask you where to save the scan choose word or office if you already have them. the reason is you must use an editable program to edit the document.
Don't be surprised if the document you see isn't 100% as the document you scan because this is normal. You must be 100% that your scanned document matches - it is up to you to edit it for mistakes as they are not perfect. Some are in fact way better than others. The program with Lexmark is usually good. c88085b.jpg

If I scan a blank application to be completed after its scanned in order to print the completed application, I can't find a way to add and or edit text on it.


if you scan a document it will be a photograph   editing a document is done in a text application like word or notepad   the two are completely different things   i use text bridge  or Paperport Professional  it will read the text off of the scanner bed and convert to a text document   it may make some errors but will still save much time rewriting the document  add the saved text to word and change the font and spacing to try to duplicate the original document  save it  then edit it to your hearts desire

When i click on send to computer freezes


Either you are running low on pc resources such as ram (memory), hard drive OR you have a virus.

1. You could try doing a "system restore" and go back in time to when it worked also.

2. Try to do a complete virus scan. AVG free edition of coarse is free.

3. Buy some more pc memory.

I want to scan a form and save it, and be able to fill in the blanks later. I can save it as a pdf document, but can't edit it.


When you scan it, the original manufacurer's software should allow you to save it as a Word document or some other editable format. PDF, JPG, TIF, and other image formats probably won't work.

We have a canon MP610 printer scanner combo, I work in a dentist office and am trying to scan a x-ray. When I do it is'nt picking up the detail very well at all. I think I need to adjust the settings but I...


the only way to get a little more detail out of this printer with x-rays is to INCREASE the DPI resolution. there are no other adjustments that are abailable.
The Scan Settings dialog box opens when you click Specify... on the Scan/Import Documents or images screen.
The Scan Settings dialog box allows you to specify advanced settings for scanning.

Document Type
Select the type of document to be scanned. To scan photographs, select either Color Photo or Black and White Photo. To scan text documents, select either Color Document, Black and White Document, or Text(OCR). To scan magazines, select Magazine(Color).
Document Size
Select the size of document to be scanned.
Auto Detect: Detects document size automatically.
Auto Detect(Multiple Documents): Select this when scanning multiple documents at one time.
Select Stitch-assist to scan the left and right halves of a document separately and combine them back into one image.
Reference See the section below for details.
Scanning images Larger than the Platen (Stitch Assist)
When you select Custom, a dialog box in which you can specify the document size opens. Select a Unit, then enter the Width and Height and click OK.

Important When you select Auto Detect the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, specify the document size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned, and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
When you select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen and the document.
If not, some images may not be scanned at the correct positions and sizes.
You cannot select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) or Auto Detect when Document Type is Text(OCR).
Scanning Resolution<<<<-------------------------------------------------------------<<<<<<<<<<
Select the resolution at which to scan documents. The following scanning resolution can be specified:
Text(OCR): 300dpi, 400dpi
Others: 75dpi, 100dpi, 150dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 400dpi, 600dpi
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail. At high resolution, scanning takes longer and file size becomes larger than usual. See the section below for details on resolution.
this should answer your question , feel free to post here agian if you need more help.
Regards, and thank you for using fixya.
