Scanning multiple pages to one file with canon pixma mp460

Is it possible to scan several documents to the same file or will it always be separate? Basically I am trying to send my notes to a classmate and it's about 3 pages, instead of typing it in word and emailing it I wanted to try to scan my notes and email that. When I do each page is 1 file, I want to be able to email 1 file with all the notes in it.

    Nevermind, I figured it out. You have to open the application and scan it from the computer to save it under one file. Pressing the scan button on the printer itself saves it as 1 file.

i was told that the printer needs to be directly connected to the imac (not airport) for the scanner to work.
i have the same issue w/ the airport extreme.

Hi,
The all in one solution software you used in XP doen't work with Vista.

But you can still scan and copy by using Windows Photo Gallery.

1. Click on files tab at the top in Window Photo Gallery.
2. Click on import from camera or scanner.
3. Highlight your scanner icon (ie Canon MP620) then click import.
4. New scan window will popup, now you can preview or scan using this basic looking Vista utility.

Then just save it as a GIF or a JPEG and send it as an attachment.

Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Scanner saves multiple pages separately, need saved as one

hi, 

thats very easy, i believe so ur trying to scan from the printer itself becoz that happens if u try to scan from the printer itself, instead of that use the solution center software.
if u have installed the complete software which was provided by hp, u will a icon on ur desktop called solution center, click on that and click on the scan document button on it and u get a pop window in that select the file type as PDF and click on scan at the bottom of the window and once it completes the scan, it will give a message do want to scan another page, click yes and go ahead with that........

i think i have answered ur query..............

Try re-installing it again. You may have not installed the application software for scanning if you did a Custom Install.

How do i make multiple pages scan as one document rather than each pages saving as seperate documents?


One of two things I can suggest:

1. make sure you are not scanning in JPEG or TIFF format as these are typically single page documents only. PDF is your best option for scanning.

2. Check settings, as some scanning software has an option that you can turn on or off depending on whether you want a single file with all pages or multiple files each containing a page.

Hi,

What you need to do is select the file type as .png instead of the default .jpg. A .png file will create one file with multiple pages.

Good Luck

How do I add multiple pages to one scanned doucment?


Open your Adobe Acrobat (e.g., 9.0 Pro), load your pages into the document feeder (fewer than 30 at a time), then ask Adobe Acrobat to create PDF from scanner (File/Create PDF/From Scanner). Canon MP530 as the scanner and click OK. Works like a charm!

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf


Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

Don't know how to set scanner for multiple page scan into single pdf file


The supplied Canon software is horrible, but it can be done!

Launch ScanGearStarter, choose advanced tab and click preferences button, then select scan tab.
Untick box "Automatically quit ScanGear....." then click ok.
(This box being ticked totally prevents multipage single file scanning).

Now choose simple mode tab, select the document type, dpi and document size.
Now click the green "Multi Scan" button, place the document on the scanner glas and press next in the new window.

The page will be scanned and the ScanGear window will return, just click "Multi Scan" again and place next document, press next. Keep repeating until all pages are scanned, then close the ScanGear window.

This will bring up a third window showing thumbnails of each page, any of these pages can be deselected if required.
The other important step is to choose from the pull down list Saved as Type: "MultiPagePDF".

Choose the location for saving the file and click save.
Hallelujah! .......stupid software.
