How can you scan text into Microsoft Word


Hi,

When you scan a document, Choose the File type/format as RTF or Microsoft word if you find in the list.

After you have scanned the document as RTF, open microsoft word and Open the document you have saved as RTF.

It will be in editable format.

Let me know if you need any more help or find difficulty in scanning as Word file

The scanner keeps jamming. i try to scan form the document feeder &the papers keep getting stuck. It will not complete a scan!what do i do?


In summary: * Very unintuitive, convoluted and unpleasant to use (same on Win2K as XP) - sometimes the SW hangs during scan and needs a reboot - sometimes the SW crashes with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot - sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf
Advantages: I cannot see any advantages with this product
Disadvantages: Software is convoluted and unreliable, paper jams are difficult to clear

function showHideReviewText( sType ) { if ( sType == 'more' ) { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('less'); }; } else { document.getElementById( 'review_text_full' ).style.display = 'none'; document.getElementById( 'review_text_short' ).style.display = 'block'; document.getElementById( 'review_title_link' ).onclick = function() { showHideReviewText('more'); }; } } ...with a dialogue "try reinstalling HP software", and needs a reboot
- sometimes it scans and after conversion to pdf every page is blank
- very occasionally it scans a document properly
*If the sheet-feeder jams is says to refer to the documentation to clear it, which doesn't exist. There is no way to clear the jam except to pull hard & hope. No levers to release it like one would expect.
*Frequently has error ...
...cycled to work again.

Everything has to be started by pressing a button on an application called "HP Director". There are 4 apps started from this:
1) Scan Picture
2) Scan Document
3) Make Copies
4) View & Print
also Help
also Settings (which are used in conjunction with settings found in (1) and (2)!)
- Each application has to be exited to return to "HP Director"
its a worst scanner
and prone to jamming problem

Hp deskjet f2280 need help scanning


Hi,
this is a two step process first you scan the image and save it, usually you can find it under my scanned images folder, desktop, my documents, or use the search functionality to find your scanned file. For mor information about scan settings visit:
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01567026&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3390947&lang=en

you can then just open your word, go to Insert, picture, from file and browse to previously saved scan file.

Hope this answers your question.

The documents are scanned but dont appear on later inspection, or if they do they are just a horizontal line across the middle


Try reinstalling the driver software. If the problem still persists, run scandisk or reinstall OS.

Try saving the file on your desktop first, and see if it converts and saves correctly. Next, make sure that your external harddrive is detected correctly and visible under My Computer.

You could also try reinstalling the software and drivers. Try this first and let me know how it goes..

Acrobat 8.1


Upgrade to Acobat 9.0 Pro. It seems to work in that can scan pages for a document, HOWEVER, adding/appending to already scaned pages for a document seems to crash 9.0. For example, say I scan in pages 1 - 4. I cannot then scan pages 5 -6 as part of the same document--crashes Acrobat.

I think this finally proves the problem is Acrobat 8.0 and NOT the i40 drivers.
