Will not scan to PDF

Same issue as everyone else. Been having to scan as photos since the docuement option will not work since it wants an OCR application, and then sending them to work to transfer to PDF at work.

I have had the same problem and was looking for an answer... Here is what I have been doing... Download Cute PDF Writer. It is free from Adobe. Once you save the document as a JPG, then print it using the Cute PDF Writer. Simply Select the Cute PDF Writer from your Printer list, it will then act as if it will print but bring up a screen where you want to save it. once you save it, the document will be a PDF. Not a great solution but it works

Pls, how could i scan (Lexmark X7170), an article of 20 pages in one pdf file? thanks!


Go to Adobe Acrobat. Click on FILE. Click on CREATE PDF. Click on FROM SCANNER. Click on SCAN. You should now be scanning your first page, after completing it you will be asked if you want to scan any more pages or close. Select to scan more pages till finished. You can also select to have Acrobat do an OCR after the scan which will allow you to search the document. To do this, click on DOCUMENT, click on RECOGNISE TEXT USING OCR and click on START.

Whenever i scan to pdf, the output of images/graphics on the documents are not properly displayed. They are usually displayed as some funny-looking characters. for example, when i scanned a documents with...


You are scanning the pages in OCR (Optical Character Recognition) mode. This allows scanned text to be converted to (editable) text, and is more useful when scanning to a Word document for example.

If you just want to scan a page and archive it, look for a standard (non-OCR) scanning option, and specify PDF as the output format. If it's not available, you can just as well keep the pages in TIFF format, which also allows for multiple pages.
Also, if you have MS Office, there's MS Document Imaging tool included, that allows you to scan to MDI multi-page documents.

If however you want the page OCRed, I don't know which software is included with your scanner, but generally you must investigate the OCR settings to find an option to scan a page with text and images, instead of text only.
Some OCRs require you to select areas that contain text, leaving the rest as pictures, other do it automatically.
If you cannot make friends with your software that's bundled with the device, I would suggest looking for FineReader. Even an older version of FineReader is far superior to any other OCR software I've seen.
Good luck

Seperates the pictures from the text when scanning


Stop scanning as an OCR. Scan as a PDF or photo and it will scan it exactly as it was on the scanbed.

When scanning for OCR OPTICAL CHARACTER RECOGNITION it is translating the text for notepad and saving the pictures at the end or in separate files.

OCR application error with the Dell ALL in ONE


OCR is a software provided by Dell to convert a scanned document to editable text(word) document. If you scan without OCR software, printer will scan it as a Picture and you can not edit it.

Now here is your answer.
When you install Printer CD, it also install OCR software (Abbyy Fine reader) along with it.
You might have uninstalled the printer drivers and reinstalled them by downloading it from Dell support site.
I must tell you that Downloaded drivers from Dell site DOES NOT contain OCR software.

Solution:

3. You can scan using MS Paint.
Click on Start > All Programms > Acccessories > Paint
Click on "File" on Top left corner.
Click on "From scanners and cameras"
Click on "Scan"

It should be able to scan.

4. If you want to use Dell All In One Center.
You can disable OCR option for scanning and it will scan as an image.

Open Dell All in one center.
Click on Advanced scan options Under scan,
Uncheck "Use OCR software".
Click OK and try to scan again using Dell All In One center or using the printer operator panel.
