When you use a regular copier, it doesn't save, right? It just copies. That's the whole idea behind the Copy program that came with your scanner - for your scanner to operate as a copy machine. What you want is document management software.

Therefore, the very best solution is to download a (free) program that will convert files (Word, Excel, etc.) into PDF files. Click here for a list of such programs.

Suggestion: Never use image files for document management because they don't have any of the necessary features, such as the ability to search the contents of a digital document, the ability to comment, etc. And you want a program that will convert into PDF - try to stay away from other file formats as PDF (Adobe) is the "standard."

When scanning a document, such document stays with the previous document scanned and wont save as a different file. How can I separate what I'm scanning from what I scanned previously on my computer? How...


If you had selected 'multipage' option, the scanner will convert all pages into a single page. Switch off (uncheck) multipage option and you will get individual page outputs. Check in the software if your clicked unnecessary button for saving in the last file. Try 'Default' button if available and try again.

Scan a Multipage Document into a Single File


My scanner is a Cannon but the basic jist of what your trying to do is universal. You need to open up the software for the scanner and look for an icon that says scan to file. It sounds like you have already done this. If so you are very close in the step I mention to the setting you need to scan multiple pages into one PDF file. Once you find the setting to scan multiple pages be sure to not click "FINISHED" until your last page is scanned in.

Use the PDF function of the CanoScan Toolbox. On the options screen for a pdf, click the drop down box next to “Save as Type:”. Select “PDF (Multiple Pages)”. This option causes CanoScan to stop after each page is scanned and ask if there is a next page or if you are finished.
