Is there any way to scan multiple pages and have the pages show up as one file, preferably a pdf or word doc file on the computer so that I can email this file? I think there is software available called Presto Page Manager but is there any way around this. Thanks! Clint

Re: scan multiple pages to one file
There are several programs available for downloading that work as print to pdf... some free some not. You can try pdf creator it's free and works well for me, the download isn't very long and the install is super easy.
after you install the program, you should see a pdf printer in your printer selections. You don't want to try to save your file, you have to select print and then select the pdf print to file option in your printer selection. Print the first file to a file you create to save it as a pdf. for the subsequent files you will need to choose Append to an existing pdf file and select the file you have created.
Test the file to see that both of your scans are in there and that they are in the order you want them to be in. If all that works find, you can follow the same procedure with each scanned page and they should all end up in one file.
the pdf print to file is also a great way to save webpages in one single file :)

The HP support website doesn't specify that you would be able to do that. Normally, in the scanning preferences from where you scan/preview the document, you would have a radio button to tick for multiple pages.
Alternatively, you can use this site to combine your PDF files into a single one: http://www.mergepdf.net/ Simple click Pick PDF, select your files and then click Merge PDF, when it will finnish you can download the file.
Only one page per scan.But scan the desire doc and print it in the quantity you want.For the docs to be printed in PDF grab a copy of CutePDf that works as a printer driver.When you choose the doc in to printer you will choose CutePDF instead of your HP.

Well once you have digitized all the documents can they all be converted to PDF?
THen all you need to do is to make sure the titles are in numeric order as page 1 - whatever
Adobe PDF acrobat professional lets you place them all into one doc.
On the left open page options at the top of this menu you can insert after of befor all the rest of the docs just open the lead doc and then add pages to thea you will build a book
The supplied Canon software is horrible, but it can be done!
Launch ScanGearStarter, choose advanced tab and click preferences button, then select scan tab. Untick box "Automatically quit ScanGear....." then click ok.
(This box being ticked totally prevents multipage single file scanning).
Now choose simple mode tab, select the document type, dpi and document size.
Now click the green "Multi Scan" button, place the document on the scanner glas and press next in the new window.
The page will be scanned and the ScanGear window will return, just click "Multi Scan" again and place next document, press next. Keep repeating until all pages are scanned, then close the ScanGear window.
This will bring up a third window showing thumbnails of each page, any of these pages can be deselected if required.
The other important step is to choose from the pull down list Saved as Type: "MultiPagePDF".
Choose the location for saving the file and click save. Hallelujah! .......stupid software.
For you to be able to scan multiple pages using the .pdf and save it in one file, here are the steps that i want you to follow.
1. Open the Solution Center.
2. Click on Settings, then go to scan settings.
3. Click on Scan preferences.
4. Make sure that the "Prompt for additional scans from glass/TMA has a checkmark. then click OKAY.
1. Solution Center is open, click on Scan documents.
2. Scan document settings is open, choose SCAN TO: .pdf and file type is .pdf
3. Click on SCAN below. It will start scanning, and just click on ACCEPT everytime it gives preview on each document.
well you are able to scan multiple documents.. but the file size is more.. the way lexmark software writes the pdf file.. the file will be huge for PDF... but not sure if this is a case with any other all in one manufacturer like HP also... but i would assume it would be the same..
so scan the file to MS WORD or any other application that supports multiple pages... so u have it as one file... but if u want only pdf files, then u have to do a little work around like writing the MS WORD Document to pdf format. If the PDF Writer is not installed with your copy of MSWORD then try any free pdf writer software available on the internet.
