Canon ScanGear Ir - how to set defaults?

When I initiate a scan job from an app, Canon scangear Ir launches with a window to configure how the scan is done - flatbed vs. ADF, color/grayscale/B&W, paper size. The problem is that every scan job requires that I change each of the configurations. How can I set the default config for scangear, so that each time it launches, the settings are what I want? This is the Scangear Ir for Imagerunner copiers, not the the Scangear for USB desktop scanners. thanks!

Re: Canon ScanGear Ir - how to set defaults?

ScanGear won't run under Vista. The scanner works with other programs. (Twain works) ScanGear fails and Vista closes it.

I want you people to teach me how to install and to use a network scanner on canon IR2520.

Install the scanner driver (Canon Network ScanGear) found on the bundled CD. I assume you already assigned an IP address on your copier. Run the Network ScanGear software, the one you installed earlier. Click Discover or you can manually type the IP address of your copier. If your copier is discovered, click Test Connection. Remark is displayed that your scanner is ready to use. Click OK to save the settings.

Now, run 3rd party software (eg Photoshop). In File > Acquire > (Select Canon Network ScanGear). A window will pop up and you are ready for scanning. Note: If error "Scanner is offline" occurs, go to your copier and press Scan > Remote Scan > Online.

Network ScanGear can't discover Canon IR 3220

Had the same problem with my Canon IR2018i... After spending about all day stuffing around and ready to give up... I read in the Color Network Scangear User Manual that
"Only scanners on the same subnet (network with the same network ID) as your computer are displayed in the list"
So I went the the TCP/IP settings on my copier and changed my subnet mask from to and magically my scanner appeared....
Give it a go...

Don't know how to set scanner for multiple page scan into single pdf file

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.

On the device you want to chose the SCAN option and set it to ONLINE.
You then need an application that does TWAIN scanning and aquire image data. Set your scanner device yo "Canon Color Network Scangear".
A freeware product you can use to test is irfanview
You would otherwise need to do an aquire / TWAIN scan from MS Word or Adobe Acrobat (full/pro) or another software that does TWAIN scanning.

I have no manual and I need to figure out how to scan on this machine. Canon Imagerunner 50001.

Download the network scangear from the canon web site.
Install the scangear on all the computers you want to scan to.
On the scangear tool there is a discover icon,click that icon and wait till the ir 5000 is picked up by the network.Select the machine in the scangear tool.Now you will be able to scan to mirosoft word and exel like you normally do with a scanner.
If the scangear tool was unable to discover the machine,the network settings of the IR must be checked.
Hope this help.
