Can't Scan in Imac, via adobe acrobat. Not able to pick printer from the use this scanner field

I have been scanning in to acrobat writer in windows PC from the same brother printer MFC-9420CN. But when I tried to scan in to Apple Imac I am not able to see the scanner in the drop down list. I am able to print to the printer from the Imac. I think there has to be some kind of scanner setting in Apple but in preferences there is only printer no scanner option.Same thing. I don't see the MFC9420cn in the drop down scanner menu in Adobe Acrobat. I've re-installed drivers, but no glory.

I have a good USB connection, as printer works fine.

How do i scan more than one sheet into a pdf document?


In Adobe Acrobat, go to -File-/-Create PDF-/-From Scanner-/-Scan-. Scan your first sheet and after it is completed, in the Acrobat Scan Dialogue box, click on -Next-, and scan the next sheet. Continue until you have finished your document and then click on -Done-. You can make your scanned document searchable by doing an OCR procedure on it by going to -Document-, -Recognise document by using OCR-/-Start-.

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


    Hi There !!

    Thank you for choosing fixya.com

    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.

    How do I add multiple pages to one scanned doucment?


    Open your Adobe Acrobat (e.g., 9.0 Pro), load your pages into the document feeder (fewer than 30 at a time), then ask Adobe Acrobat to create PDF from scanner (File/Create PDF/From Scanner). Canon MP530 as the scanner and click OK. Works like a charm!
