Why Can't I print documents?


What application are you printing from?

Are you trying to print a PDF with a lot of scanned images or embedded content? Large PDFs can bog down printing.

Try to find a simple text-only PDF (no graphics or scanned stuff) with only a few pages and print it.

Some third party PDF generators do not make clean PDFs. They are malformed and can cause issues when printing.

It will only print as picture, not as a document or pdf file


Cindee,

To be able to scan in as PDF, you'll need a software that is capable of creating PDF's from scanned images.

Adobe Acrobat is the top software for this, but it's also expensive. Another popular software is called ScanToPDF. It's less expensive than Acrobat; it also has less features.

Once you have a software installed on your computer that has the ability to create PDFs, then you should be able to scan a document and save it as a PDF.

Good Luck! Hope this helped!

Re: Canon CanoScan LiDe 90: I used to be able to scan documents directly as PDF's but now that I had to re-install the scanner onto a new computer, it only allows me to scan as a Photo (jog / tif etc)....


I have many years experience repairing Canon scanners so here is my suggestion for you.

Well an easy way to do this is to scan them and save them as a word document if you can, or save them as a .txt (text) document some where on your computer. Then if you have the full version of Adobe go to where you saved them and convert them to a .pdf. But I think only the full version of Adobe will do this for you. There are free .pdf convertors if you google for them.

I hope this helps you out.

I want to save scanned document as a .doc using CanoScan 8400F


Scanners only see millions of dots. Unless it has software to convert a picture into a document, all documents are seen by scanners as pictures made of of millions of dots. Software is available to convert it to a Microsoft Doc format but it is very expensive.

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document


Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

Use the PDF function of the CanoScan Toolbox. On the options screen for a pdf, click the drop down box next to “Save as Type:”. Select “PDF (Multiple Pages)”. This option causes CanoScan to stop after each page is scanned and ask if there is a next page or if you are finished.

I'm using a CanoScan LiDE 60 and I have no idea even how to begin. I need to scan in 5 different documents with numerous pages and I was hoping to create a pdf for each. Can you help me get started?


Use the CanoScan Toolbox that shipped with the scanner. If you don't have it, then download it from the Canon Website. http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=351&modelid=11446

If you don't have the scanner driver, then download that too.

Once you have Toolbox installed and you open it, there will be a PDF button. The scan to PDF window will open. If you're planning to do a multiple page pdf, then click the dropdown menu next to 'Save as Type:' and select PDF (Multiple Pages). You're now ready to begin, insert your first page into and then click 'Scan'.
