SOURCE: Save scanned document in PDF

Well I have this problem too.

The HP's link guest posted above is in simplified chinese, for those who doesn't understand chinese, and is too lazy in translating them, here is a brief translation done by myself.

-----------------------------------
HP is acknowledged of this problem, this is basically caused by the incompatibility between HP's OCR engine and form tables in the scanned documents.

"As HP's OCR engine is kinda elementary, and is not supposed for professional uses", said HP, they suggest users to reduce the complexity of scanned documents by limiting the scanned regions. The best way would be by eliminating image objects, or just scanning text within a form table. (Well that would be kinda lame and stupid.)

Well if you DO need to process documents with forms, "Get A Professional OCR software" and forget about HP's imaging software, it's what HP says.
----------------------------------------

Wish this would help.

I would first make sure that you have latest driver update. MS Word is very particular about how it reads things back in. I would try saving the scan as a text file or PDF instead and then open them in Word. Hope this helps!
If this solution was helpful to you, will you please rate the solution? Thanks!

SOURCE: Scanning docs & size of pdf files on Mac w/HP l7680 All-in-one

The scanner produces a "picture" of the document, much as if you laid it flat on a table and took a picture of it with your digital camera. If you did this, your .jpg from the camera would be several hundred K at a minimum - comparable to the file size off the scanner. That's why the file is so big, it contains a picture and not text data - even though it's still a .jpg file.
If you reduce the scan resolution you will save space, but at the expense of legibility of the document image. To get it down to the smallest possible size, you will need to run the scanned image through OCR ( Optical Character Recognition ) into a Word document for example, and then print it out to a .pdf file. If you have a clean source document with few graphics this isn't as difficult as it may seem. Microsoft Office has an excellent OCR process known as Document Imaging. You need to carefully proof read the result but with a clean input Document Imaging is amazingly accurate in Office 2007.
In short, there is no easy solution to your problem.

SOURCE: HP Deskjet F4180-no option to save as PDF

A simple solution to this problem is to scan to JPG as normal and then print the JPG to a PDF using one of the very good "print to PDF" utilities like the Cute PDF writer.

Good luck.

I want to scan to my documents and the scan only scans to photo essentials. What do I do?


Hi,

How are you scanning it ? From HP Solutions Center or HP Director ?

Try this step.

Open HP Director or HP Solution Center.

Under Settings you will find Pictures/Document Scan
Below you will find option like File Type : Choose JPEG or PDF

Save it.

IF this does not work, the best option for you is to uninstall HP Photosmart Essentials from Add/Remove programs ( or Control panel - Programs and Features )

But however, by default the pictures/documents are still saved in MY Documents - My Scans folder even if the Photosmart essential pop-up after you scan

Regards,
Ron

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?

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.

I have hp officejet 6110 all- in- one and cannot scan page of text into my computer. Printer gives message "Scanning error. Cannot connect to computer."


If you have updated to Internet Explorer 7 or 8, the HP Director program won't work correctly without the update patch from HP Support. Go to HP Support, put in the model number of the device and search for drivers. Look for a special driver or patch for Internet Explorer and download and install. This will allow the HP director to run from the desktop. Once it is started you should restart your printer and make sure it is connected with a USB, or if it is connected directly to the router for your home network, you should uninstall the printer, then reinstall the printer and see if the computer sees it this time with the new driver on the hard drive. Once it installs, see if the HP Director can be started from the desktop and choose scan document, It will ask what you want to scan and where do you want to scan it to. Click document or picture...I have mine set up to scan text documents as PDF's and Pictures as JPGs. I then set it to "Save to file" when the scanning is done, whether it is one file or many, the director will then ask what folder you want to save the files to. That's all there is to it. Good Luck, ParrotHead PC Repair
