How to Create Multi Page PDFs

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?

SOURCE: Scanning multiple page documents

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.

My Epson CX3810 all-in-one priner does not allow me to scan mulitiple document into one file. Each page is scanned as a seperate document.


The documentation is here: http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/cx38__/cx38__ug/wwhelp/wwhimpl/js/html/wwhelp.htm

 

You can scan multiple pages of a document on the document table and save them as one PDF file on your computer. Epson Scan displays an editing page so you can view the pages as you scan them and reorder, rotate, or delete them as necessary.

 

Select PDF as the file type setting.

When prompted "scanning complete.  Do you want to continue"  Click "add page"

    There is no easy way of doing this.
    What you can do is scan each page as an image file, then use an OCR program to convert each page into a text file and save them. Then open a fresh/new Word document, then open each text file page and copy and paste each text file page into this Word document.
    After you have copied all the pages into this Word document, then spell check it, edit and format the text then save the document. You can then create a PDF file from this Word document if you need to.

    Can't scan multiple pages into single document - reinstalled drivers but still can't - used to be able to. How do I fix this?


    http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/…

    I think this says you need Professional Mode rather than Full Auto Mode.

    Under File Save Settings in the Professional Mode, you should see buttons for Add Page / Edit Page / Safe File.

    Basically, you keep adding pages then finish.

    If you already have multiple .pdf files that you wish to combine, Acrobat Professional (not READER) can do that.

    Good luck,

    I copied the text but I think you won't be able to see the images here:

    4. Select PDF as the file type setting. The current Paper Size, Orientation, Margin, and Compression setting are displayed below it.

    5. If you need to change any of the current PDF settings, click the Options button. You see the EPSON PDF Plug-in Settings window:


    Select the settings that match your document and click OK. You return to the File Save Settings window.
    6. When you are finished selecting file settings, click OK. Epson Scan scans your page and displays this window:


    7. If you are scanning only one document page, or you don’t need to edit your pages, click Save File and go to step 10.

    If you are scanning multiple pages, click Add page and replace the first page on the document table with the second page and click Scan. Repeat this step for each page in your document. When you are finished, click Edit page and go to step 8.
    8. You see the Editing Page window displaying thumbnail images of each scanned page:


    If you want to include all the document pages in your PDF file as they currently look, go to step 9.
    If you want to delete some of the pages, click the odd pages or even pages icons, or click the individual pages you want to delete. Then click the delete icon to delete them.
    If you want to rotate pages, click the pages or use the odd pages, even pages, or all pages icon to select the pages. Then click the left or right rotate icon to rotate them.
    Note:
    The delete icon is not available when all document pages are selected.
    9. When you have finished editing your document pages, click OK. Your document is saved in a PDF file in the location you selected and you return to the EPSON Scan window.

    10. Click Close to exit Epson Scan. Source(s): http://files.support.epson.com/htmldocs/…

    Try OCR Terminal,which is an online OCR service that converts scanned images into searchable text. Register an account and you can convert 20 pages for free every month.
