Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document

Hi
As a Windows Vista user, I've recently purchased a CanoScan LiDE 25/LiDE 60 which replaced an 8 year old HP Scanjet. With my previous scanner I could scan and copy directly into a Word document but in the Cannon I have to save the scan and then insert it into a Word document. As there are no copy and paste facilities on the scanning screen and Ctrl C and Ctrl V do not work, is there any other way of copying?
Cheers
Janice

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.

I lost the set up CD ROM for the CanoScan Lide 90 and now the scanner doesn't work with my new computer


From this link you can select your operating system (Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7) and download the official drivers for your canon scanner. I assume that your scanner is lide 90, not lide 25 as there is different model at the headline and at your post.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post me a reply.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Wont scan with new computer , uses vista


Unfortunatly there is no driver made by cannon to make this unit work with Windows Vista and they are not going to invent one either.

However did you use Vista to id the unit as a scanner and use Vista's Windows Gallery as a scanner software?

Try this substitue and get back to me about how it's working

Canoscan Lide 30 compatibility with Windows 7.


There are no official drivers for CanoScan Lide 30 for Windows XP, so your problem is obvious. I suggest you sending an e-mail at Canon including details about your scanner (date purchased, serial number in text form or scanned) asking them to develop driver set as this model is very trade and at shops since 2006 or 2007.

In case of a problem or clarification, don't hesitate to post.

Hello I have recently purchased a second-hand CanoScan LiDE 25 scanner and it was accompanied by OmniPage SE Software. The reason for this purchase was to scan research papers for a friend. My experience...


Don't use the OmniPage software for scanning. OmniPage is an OCR (optical character recognition) program and is trying to convert the scan into a document compatible with a text editor (such as Microsoft Word). Use a graphics editing program, and use the option to 'Import' or 'Acquire' an image. Make sure that the LiDE 25 is specified as the scanner, and you should be linked to the scanner interface. Now when the scan is complete, it will be transferred to the graphics editor as an image, not a document.

Scan and make changes to document later


You need to use OCR. Use the OmniPage Se application that shipped with your scanner.

Have you installed OmniPage? What OS are you using? Which scanner did you have previously? Are you able to OCR a document through OmniPage?
