Dell 1815 dn all in one

I have a problem scanning. I scan 5 pages and when I go to email the 5 pages, I have to attach each page separately. 5 attachments. Is there any way to send all 5 pages as one attachment. What I would like to do is be able to send 20-25 pages into one attachment. Can this be done by a dumb person, me?

When scanning a document it is common for the scanner to use a high resolution and color mode both of which increase the size of each scan. There is a limit on the size of an attachment which varies with your e-mail and or Internet provider. It is best to keep attachments as small as possible. You can change this in the settings menu going to black and white and setting the DPI (dots per inch) down from 300-600 to 150 or even 75 and the scan will be fine but a smaller file size. If you are sending color pictures you can make them smaller but the quality will suffer some and you will still need more then one e-mail but with adjustment of the settings you can reduce it to a minimum. I hope this is useful to you. Good Luck

On a Konica Bizhub c364e, how do you scan multiple pages and have them show up as separate files in your email or USB?


Go to Scan/Fax option.
choose your destination.
click on scan setting
on right hand side you will find option SINGLE or
SEPARATE/SEPARATION.
If separate or separation is selected/highlighted thats means all page will be scanned in single file.
if not selected then all single page will create separate file..

4.select multi page multi page to have the entire scan job sent as a single file.

Scanning several pages and saving as one document


Try this....
Scan your multiple pages to an image file, like .jpg, I know it's tedious, name them (optional) by page number, put them into an empty folder.

When you're done with all the scanning, open the folder, select all of them, open with: Preview.

Now, you should see one page, with a side bar containing all of the pages. (If they're not in order, you can drag and drop within the sidebar to reorder.) Select all of those (Or Command A)

Command P (Or Print)
In this window, you should see page one, and below that, make sure it says "Page 1 of XX"...this way you know you got 'em all, and it's your final opportunity to page through them all by clicking on the little arrows to make sure they're in the right order.

Click the PDF button

Dell 1815 dn printer scanner issue: single line appears in scans


Do you get the same line when you use the adf for other purposes?

If so, check the scanner glass just before the platen for something like white-out on it. Clean both the scanner glass and platen glass with Windex.

That is a common problem on all ADF scanners.

Good Luck

Scanning several pages


That 1st solution looks like SPAM. You could google "Free pdf software" and find a program that would allow you to scan and convert the pages to a pdf file to email. But if you don't do it often enough to need this kind of program, here is the simplest method: Scan your pages to a folder. Begin to compose your email and click on "add attachment". Browse to that folder, open it, then use the "shift + click" method to select them all (first click on page #1, then while holding down "shift" click on the last page you want--this will select them all). Then click "Attach" and they will all be attached to the email as separate files.

Scanning several pages and saving as one document


Single scan printers can be difficult in this manner.\

Consider using the OCR (optical character recognition) software that came with your scanner.

Basically the part of the software that asks you what you are scanning (picture, document, newspaper) and make sure to select document. This will enable the character recognition which will convert the scanned picture into a document that you can configure to go into Microsoft Word or Notepad or whatever. If you have multiple pages, it MIGHT give you the option to scan more than one page at a sitting. then again, it may not. In which case you might be kicking yourself for not purchasing the scanner with the auto feed attachment! Once you have made your scanned document in your word processor - READ THROUGH IT! may have converted characters incorrectly - like an "S" may be now a "$" it happens - and it will happen. When done, attach complete document to email and BOOM done.

Either this or use a fax machine :)

hope i helped!
