Why do scanned documents only display in PDF format. Why not display in WORD?


well scanned documents are best suited with pdf format since a photo scanned would lose its glamour in a word document format and thus looks good in a pdf format but there are still options for you to convert it to a word document through: http://convertonlinefree.com/PDFToWORDEN.aspx

I cannot use the scan function on my X5470--specifically, to scan documents into PDF format. "Cannot retrieve Application List" is the messge shown. How do I repair this function?


Make sure the Lexmark OCR scan software is installed on your computer. The software allows you to scan your documents to PDF file. The software is only available on the installation disc that came with your Lexmark printer. If you don't have the disc, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for assistance.

A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Rebrick (pull out power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds).

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print/scan again.

New all in one printer/scanner. when I scan I get:- Adobe reader could not open 'scan_Doc0001.pdf'


Might need a bit more information about this: But I'm presuming you scan your document and save it as a pdf document using the built in HP software?
Couple of things to try:
1 - have you got the latest version of Adobe Reader? It may be that you are using an older version - the pdf document specification has been updated over the years and it may be that you're saving the pdf using a newer version of the pdf format than adobe reader is able to read.
2 - Adobe reader isn't the only pdf viewer, there are numerous other pdf document viewers (some free some not) You could try another pdf viewer, like Foxit Reader (free to use) and see if that can open it?
3 - When you save the scan, make sure that in the Save Dialog box it is really saving it as pdf. Common mistake is that people often just save a file with .pdf and expect the program to know that you want to save as pdf. When you scan there are several other file formats that you can use (Tiff, Jpeg etc) Is is possible you're saving the file as Tiff or Jpeg but with a .pdf file extension? If you're not sure, re-scan the document and resave it, but don't use a file extension, let the scanning program do that, see what it saves it as?
4 - check where you're saving the pdf on your computer? Is the place you're trying to open it from, the same as the place you've saved it?

When i email scanned docs from my HP officejet 8500 Plus printer to my email, the pdf's are too large. how do i set them to be emailed at a smaller size.


No problem, you can solve this problem very easily :
Whenever you scan a document directly to your e-mail in a PDF format then printer scans it using its own property and only scans the document without any editing in the font or characters.

But the output i.e. the scanned document in pdf shows the same text using its own properties. That font is selected by pdf and not by the hp software.You can open the scanned pdf file and manually change the font size.
Or else

The best way that I will suggest you :

- First scan the documetn in a pdf file or any format on your computer instead of directly on e-mail.
Because when you scan it to your computer printer will scan the document directly to computer and in this way after scanning you can open and see the document. You can make sure if it is scanned properly or not, however when you scan it to e-mail there are chances when we dont verify if the document is scanned properly or not. If there is any hardware issue or any other error then it will scan half page or a blank page....we wont be able to verify it.
- Also if it is an official document which is half scanned or has some problem in it will give a bad impact on the receiver which is not good for professionals.
- By scanning on computer you can verify the document, can make required changes and will be able to send the document in a proper way. It is going to take few seconds but results will be fruitful....try it..!!! I do the same way and there is not much difference

How can I scan a document into the WorkCentre M20i so that it is emailed as a word document and not a PDF doc. When we scan a document it is emailed as a PDF document.


You can not email documents on word format directly fromt he device.
PDF and image formats such as tiff and jpeg are the only formats you can scan.
A word document is a raw document that as been modified and formated by a specific text processor, in this case MS office. And the decive does not contain this processing capabilities.

My HP F4210 can´t create PDF format from scanned documents. I run VISTA. Stefan


It's not the scanner that creates the PDF, you need scanning software capable of saving scanned image as PDF. loaded on your computer. The software determines where to send and how to save a scanned document.

make sure that scan driver is completely installed in your computer.
