SOURCE: scan multiple pages to one file

Hi Clint...

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 :)

hope that helps!

SOURCE: Can't scan multiple pages into 1 document

Be kind m'53. Maybe you can scan to a folder, then use print setup to compile all the data on one page, if it's not much data. You'll have to do all this with the computer, don't expect the scanner to do that. There is always lots of software out there to do this kind of stuff.

SOURCE: Can't save multiple page scan to multiple page pdf document

that should be because you scanned the pages separately, did you notice if the PDF document converted was the very last page of the 13paged document which you wanted to make a document from? if that's right, then you just only converted the last scanned page into PDF, to stick all the pages together, i recoment you treating them as images and using word to stick them all together with the "insert>image> from archive" adjusting the size of the image at 1 page and with each 13 pages do the same until you have a full document of 13 images in 13 pages then you can convert it into PDF

You must get an Adobe program to do that... OR combine them later. Adobe Professional 8 will allow scanning multiple pages into a document I use it all the time. There are also other PDF makers/converters too, to download. Another way is to scan into Word, or similar, and then "Print" as a PDF.

Have you tried compressing the file into a zip format. If you are using Windows this can be done using right click or download zip genuis and use that. Once compressed the file should be small enough to email.

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.

I need my scanned documents to be in pdf file. it wants to sent it as a paint document


It is advised to go to the Brother web site and download the http://www.brother.com/E-ftp/windowsvista/asia.html brother original drivers. Once you follow the instructions on the drivers you can then install new complete driver which allows you to choose various files.
Hope this helps as I had the same problem

Please open the Brother Control Centre software, go in to the configuration and then to scan and then the scan option you are choosing (email, file etc) there will be a file type option here and one of the options will be PDF.
