Scanning a word document Deskjet F4180

I am scanning a word document and would like to add it to an existing document. It does not ask me where the scanned document is supposed to go. I can push the copy button and it scans the document and then prints it but it will not scan it and hold it until I can add it to an existing document. What do I do?

Scanning a document is the same as scanning a picture, it must be done from within the document app. In this case I'm assuming you are using Microsoft Word.

Scan a picture and insert it in a document@import url(/Office.css); To do this procedure, your device (a scanner or a digital camera) must be connected to your computer and be TWAIN-compatible. You should also make sure that you have installed the device software that supports TWAIN.
Some devices come with more than one software program. If you are not sure what software is TWAIN-compatible, check the device documentation or contact the manufacturer of the device.

  1. Set up the picture in the scanning device.

  2. On the Insert menu in Microsoft Word, point to Picture, and then click From Scanner or Camera.

  3. If you have more than one device connected to your computer, select the one you want to use under Device.

  4. Do one of the following: If you want to use a lower resolution or you intend for your document to be viewed on the screen, click Web Quality.
  5. If you want to use a higher resolution or you intend for your document to be printed, click Print Quality.

  6. Do one of the following: If you're using a scanner and you want to use predefined settings to scan your picture, click Insert.
    If you're using a scanner and you want to change image settings, or if you're using a camera, click Custom Insert. Then follow the instructions that come with the device you're using.
  7. When the image appears in the document, make any changes you want.

  8. You can use the tools on the Picture toolbar to make changes such as cropping the picture, and adjusting its brightness, contrast, and color.
Note The Insert button might be unavailable when using some scanners because the scanner software doesn't support an automatic scanning. Use the Custom Insert button instead.

My Dell 3115cn printer will not connect to the network (it still works on USB cable), hard to believe it's broken, so can the printer system be reset?


Try turning off the printer and disconnecting power plug from wall. Hold power on button for about a minute. Then replug unit and turn power on - it should then attempt to hook up to your existing network.

If no go, try reinstalling the software that initially came with printer and was used to set up the network

What is Apostille definition and How can you apostille a document?


This is a document certification scheme which applies in countries which are signatories to the Hague Convention on Private International Law, eg not in Brazil.

It notarizes or certifies a government issued document as a genuine one for use in another signatory country eg a US birth certificate for use in say, Spain.

Such a certificate is called an apostille. It is issued by any approved office in the issuing country. In the US this is generally any approved agent of the US Dept of State:

Why does canon MP258 printer with scanner can't scan japanese yen paper bill amount 10,000. I tried it over 10 times but it stops,. And when i tried US paper bill, it works well. I need some explanation...


When you scan with any scanner it utilised the software with "Optical Character Recognition functions, usually abbreviated to OCR -> OCR is a field of research in pattern recognition, artificial intelligence and computer vision." to scan and record the scanned object, sometimes it does not or cannot recognise certain symbols or characters because of man made software & hardware have its limitations too.

Hope it helps.
