I want to scan a 7 page document (all text) and create a PDF file that contains all 7 pages. I know how to use the Epson Scan software to create PDFs but it gives me a seperate file for each page. How do I get it to put all 7 pages in one PDF?

Yes you can. You need a small scan application whitch allows you to scan multipages.
There are for example ScandAll21 from Fujitsu (freeware) or PaperPort 11.

Hi. Yours probably scans as soon as you have a document in and you double-click, right? I went through this. Double click on the Epson Icon. Make sure the mode preference at upper right is changed to professional. It may start scanning and you have to wait until it's finished to scan again. When you start in professional mode, it brings up a rectangular menu--you probably didn't see this one before (I didn't before changing to professional mode). Now press scan. This gives you a "file save" choice. Chose the location you want. Under the location choice is the Choose Document type option--this is the second key--save as PDF. Now it will bring up that add a page, edit or save file. Professional mode, save as PDF.

What is meant by PDF in used in scanning?


If you are asking about the "SCAN TO PDF" button, it allows the scanner to create a Portable Document Format (PDF) file. PDF files are files that can be viewed with the free Adobe Reader software. The PDF format files are easy to store on your computer and easy to share. PDF files can have many pages. Image files, like JPG, can only hold one page per file.

If you use PDF files, make sure you only get the reader software from Adobe.com.

I can not save multiple pages to a PDF file... using HP scanjet 2200c


You cannot save multiple pages as a single file using a flatbed scanner.
Create a WORD document then paste each images on a page, save the Word document and you can also create a PDF of the Word document.

Yes, OCR software takes a page of "printed" text, and tries to use image-processing techniques to
O(ptically) do C(haracter) R(ecognition) to extract the text, letter-by-letter, and to create a "text" document that you can "edit" on your computer.

I need to scan single page documents at 70kb on my HP 5500 all in one. I have tried changing all the settings that I can find and all my documents scan at about 200kb in pdf format.


Resolution and color depth are the 2 main factors that determine the size.
Scan in black & white, and reduce the resolution to 150 dpi, that should give you very small PDFs.

I scan text pages at 30kb with my HP 5610 in PDF.
