My scanner is a Cannon but the basic jist of what your trying to do is universal. You need to open up the software for the scanner and look for an icon that says scan to file. It sounds like you have already done this. If so you are very close in the step I mention to the setting you need to scan multiple pages into one PDF file. Once you find the setting to scan multiple pages be sure to not click "FINISHED" until your last page is scanned in.

How to scan multipage documents and save it as a single document


That will vary depending upon the software supplied with the scanner. Scanners themselves usually don't have such features embedded. They rely on add-on software to allow you to choose text or photo, black-and-white or color and save as photo or save to PDF format.

If the printer came with operating software you should use it to scan the document. Even without the manufacturer software (but not the drivers) you can use Acrobat or Word Perfect or LibreOffice to scan to the application then save the scanned file either as pdf, image format, or as text (OCR).
There are some free scanning software available on the Internet: freeOcr, pdfViewer, Paperscan Free edition They are usually able to send the file to an application or save in a specific format. If they are not able to scan a multipage document you will have to scan one page at a time then assemble the pages

Scanning and saving in a single file printer 966


Hello,

This printer can only scan to JPG format and that format only supports one page at a time. The only multipage file format is PDF which this printer does not support. To get everything into one file you would have to scan the pages to individual files and then use Winzip to combine then into one zip file that you can send to someone. Be careful the files will get very big very fast and some email providers will not accept files that size.

If you had selected 'multipage' option, the scanner will convert all pages into a single page. Switch off (uncheck) multipage option and you will get individual page outputs. Check in the software if your clicked unnecessary button for saving in the last file. Try 'Default' button if available and try again.

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.

The HDD was not set.  In other words, the machine has to be told in the service menu that is has a HDD.  FYI, you have to reconfigure you scanning afterwards.
