Re: cant save a scanned document as a pdf
You have to make sure your telling your scanner what your scanning. Most often it defaults as a mixed image meaning text and image. You have to tell it to scan text only and then see what options you have. If this doesnt help then do as i stated above choosing text only and save to computer as a microsoft word document. Now make sure you have latest Acrobat reader 9.0 installed and now with your word document open in top left File button there should be an option to convert to pdf format. I hope this helps and good luck

Scan to PDF requires third-party software and linking that software to the HP Solution Center. The HP imaging software only saves to BMP, DCX, FPX, GIF, JPG, PCD, PCX, and TIF. You need a program like PaperPort or save the document as an image and then convert it to a PDF (using Microsoft Office, another Office Suite, or a dedicated image to PDF conversion program.)
I wish that I had better news for you. PaperPort can be found for $50 from some vendors after rebate.
Scan and create PDF documentYou need to install a PDF printer driver on your computerfirst. There are quite a few freeware PDF writer programs on the Internet youcan download one such as CutePDF. From your computer SCAN your document then click on File - Print and select thePDF writer as the printer device. Then name and save the PDF file. To download Cutepdf PDF printer driver (freeware) click onthis link :-http://www.cutepdf.com/
The scanned items should be stored somewhere on your computer as an image file(JPG, TIF, BMP, or PDF). Typically, when you scan a document you decide where to save the document. Simply browse to where the scanned documents are, right-click on one of the files then click Delete. This should delete the scanned document.
The scanned image could be a TIF or BMP file, which can be quite large.
Download the FREE 'GIMP' (Graphical Image Manipulation Program), and install it.
Load the image. Crop it (to reduce size). Use 'Save As' to save as a GIF or JPG or PNG file,
which automatically compresses it.
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
I'm using an MP780. Usually when I scan an image to jpeg I press START, CANON, SCANGEAR STARTER. This open a window to ScanGear MP. Since I use the Advance Tab I can set the DPI and whatever outputs. The DPI rsolution will determine the size of the file also. When it is finished scanning it goes to the next window which has Save As Type and Save Scanned Image to. Save As Type is where you can choose JPG or TIFF or BMP. Hope this helps.
look into the options for your printer. you should be able to assign file extensions, i.e. .BMP, .JPG, .TIF, GIF etc to your scanned documents without printing them. No ink effects print functions or copy functions.
