Re: scanned files not saving in adobe

In all cases an scanned file is an image depending on the scanner software it will Jpeg or Bitmap. Unless you have Character regogition software which will save to a text file - then you have to have the Adobe mastering programs which is not a freeby. If you have then insert the scans a images otherwise are in a dead end here

I am using HP J4500 , when i try to scan 5 pg i get 5 x JPG files , can i get 1 x PDF file ? pls advsie thanks Ronen

Your 5 pages are scanned into 5 jpeg files, which are files saved as pictures - each scan is really a type of picture. You can change these into PDF files by importing them into a file translator program like Adobe Acrobat or MS Word. There are many freeware programs available on the Internet; OpenOffice by Oracle is an excellent free suite of programs that are completely interchangeable with MS Word files. Your solution is not complicated, though. Just save your .jpeg files in a PDF format when you get your HP scans and accept the view - the way the scan appeared as your HP printer program finished its work.

New all in one printer/scanner. when I scan I get:- Adobe reader could not open 'scan_Doc0001.pdf'

Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?

I have an HP Deskjet F4440 that will print/scan/copy. But when I scan a letter and open the file it is in a format that I can't read. How do I scan a letter and put it into a format that I can read?

You need to scan into a Word Processor, like, Word or Adobe PDF, or Publisher, you need OCR (Optical Character recognition)software to have this. Scanners usually ONLY scan as Pictures. and save as Picture files, BMP, MPG, TIFF. NOT as text.'

I can't figure out how to scan multiple pages to one file

Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing

It is possible to scan different batches scanned from the ADF into one PDF file. When loading more pages in the ADF after the first realm is finished, it asks if you want to continue scanning to the same file. After that, it will continue scanning to the same file. However, this feature can be selected in the Adobe Acrobat application itself. From HP software, if we load the paper after one realm of paper in the ADF is finished, it will scan the second realm to a different file. If you want to continue scanning to the same file, you need to have either Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat installed on the computer. Adobe Reader will not provide this feature. After installing either Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Exchange, perform the following steps to scan pages to a single file:
  1. Make sure your scanner is turned on.
  2. Start Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat.
  3. Put the document into the scanner (usually face down on the scan bed).
  4. In Adobe Acrobat, click File , then Import , and Scan .
  5. Select the device and whether you are scanning a single- or double-sided document.
  6. The scanning software opens and the scanner completes a preview scan.
  7. When the preview scan comes up, make any adjustments you would like, including selecting the area you want to appear in the final scan.
  8. Click Scan . This will get the final scan into the computer.
  9. Your scanning software should take you back to Adobe Acrobat.
  10. In Adobe Acrobat, you should see a small window asking you if you want to scan another page. If the document you are scanning has more than one page, click the Next Page button. If this is the only page, click Done .
    NOTE: Scanning multiple pages causes each page to append to the previously scanned page. If you have multiple pages, but want them to be in different files, click Done after each page to create separate files.
  11. When you have scanned the last page, click Done on the window described in step 10.
  12. Your scanned pages will open in Adobe Acrobat. Scroll through to make sure that everything is there.
  13. Click File , and then Save As to name your file and save it.
Still unable to figure out, How to do this? Here are some tutorial on HP website that might help.

Hope this would help.

Unable to save scanned document in html format

You can print save as a HTML File, most printers defaults print save as PDF files, Since PDF files are none editable you will not be able to convert this into a HTML file.

Scanner can't locate designated file when trying to SAVE

you need to have a selected file where all you scanned items are going to be saved at. if the destination doesnt accept the type of format of the document you are scanning it wont allow it...e.g JPEG to txt file.

I have Windows EX, and Lexmark All -In-One 2300. I have tried various ways and followed help suggestions but I am unable to make attachments. I cannot attach from SCAN or from File. Everything OK until...

It sounds like you are combining too problems into one. You can attach any file to an email. However if that file is a type that your computer is not aware of (ie. you don't have software that uses that kind of file) you will get a application association error.

Computers use the last three letters of the file name after the "." to determine the file's also called an extension. This comes from the old DOS days and is still in effect today, (sort of). It's getting increasingly difficult to see the extension of a particular file in Vista for instance.

In any case if you want to scan an image and attach it to an email you must first get the scanned image in a file format that most computers can understand, for instance a .jpg format (JPEG) or .pdf (Adobe Acrobat). You can usually change the file type in your scanning software as an option. Perhaps a "Save As" function exists under a file menu?

Once you get the file in a folder (ie. "My Documents") you can then open your email software, create a new message and use the attach file button, select the file and it should attach.

Hope that was helpful,
