Use the CanoScan Toolbox that shipped with the scanner. If you don't have it, then download it from the Canon Website.

If you don't have the scanner driver, then download that too.

Once you have Toolbox installed and you open it, there will be a PDF button. The scan to PDF window will open. If you're planning to do a multiple page pdf, then click the dropdown menu next to 'Save as Type:' and select PDF (Multiple Pages). You're now ready to begin, insert your first page into and then click 'Scan'.

Lide 60 not working in mountain lion

Guide to installing Canon CanoScan LiDE 35, 50 and 60 on Mac OS X 10.8. Mountain Lion:


  • If this is the first attempt to install the scanner, skip this part

  • Trash the following files/folders from these folders:

HD:/Library/Image Capture/Twain Data Sources

delete the CanoScan CanoScan XXXX.ds file

(Make note of any other files that may be in this folder. If other files are present, move them to the desktop for now. Then place them back after successfully using the scanner.)


delete the 'CanoScan XXXX' folder


delete the folders containing the name CanoScan, or starting with CNQL.


delete the CanoScan Toolbox Application


delete any items named "CanoScan Toolbox"

  • Restart your computer, then empty the trash


  • Make sure your scanner is well connected

  • Download the right driver depending on your Model. Also download the Scanner Software. Copy the filenames and search them via Google. Make sure you download the Canon files from an official Canon domain.

CanoScan LiDE 50 and LiDE 35 work both with the 35 driver:


CanoScan LiDE 60 driver:


VueScan Software:

VueScan 9.2 (or later) x32 for Mac OS X

Alternative to VueScan: CanoScan Toolbox. I prefer VueScan.

Try your luck with Version 4 or Version 5.

CanoScan Toolbox 4: cstbosx4934ej4.dmg

CanoScan Toolbox 5: cstbosx5014ej4.dmg

  • Open the downloaded driver file (lide35osx7721en.dmg or lide60osx11131en.dmg)

  • and Double-click the ScanGear file, install and restart when prompted

  • Open the downloaded VueScan file (vuex3292.dmg) and drag the VueScan application to the Mac Applications folder

  • Open the VueScan application. The scanner should be recognized automatically.

(Alternatively try and install CanoScan Toolbox 4 or 5)

Can the canoscan lide 70 scan documents to work so they can be edited? Is so how

Yes, but you have to use a special program called an "OCR" (Optical Character Recognizer) which will "read" the document from the scan. A scanner only produces a picture of a document, and it requries special software to "read" that image and make it editable.
The LIDE 70 comes with OMNIPAGE SE (special edition) which will work for simple documents. For more complex documents, you may need to buy the full edition of OMNIPAGE or another OCR package like FineReader. It is also built in fto software like OneNote and Evernote.
The top 5 free OCR tools are here:

Save documents to a pdf file using Canon CanoScan 25

If you are using PhotoStudio, you should be able to save as a PDF file if you use the "Save as..." option in the File menu and select the appropriate file type. If you are just wanting a smaller file, I recommend using a program like XnView ( - it's free) to re-save the JPG file with a lesser quality setting. I have found that a quality setting from 60 to 75 compresses the file well without introducing too many compression artifacts.
You might also consider scanning at a lower DPI (try 150) and/or resizing your scan to make the image physically smaller.

CanoScan LiDE 20 started stretching image at the beginning of the scan, continuing just fine afterwards. Bottom part of the image (in my case a letter-size page) will not fit, about 1/4 of an inch would be...

Hi pallada,

This might be a case where we address the symptoms rather than the problem.

Instead of positioning the paper to be copied at the normal position, drop it down to the 2" mark. Then on the preview screen, adjust the area to be scanned down accordingly.

This should allow a full letter size scan with no loss, truncation or stretch.

Best regards,

Question about copying direct from scan to a Word document

Check if your Canon software creates a PDF image. A scanned image is a RASTER image, a series of dots, that 'appear' like text or drawing. You cannot use Ctrl-C or Ctrl-v. If the software creates a PDF file, you can cut & paste. Usr any good OCR (Optical Character recognition) software ad convert the raster image to editable text. Then you can cut & paste.

Use the PDF function of the CanoScan Toolbox. On the options screen for a pdf, click the drop down box next to “Save as Type:”. Select “PDF (Multiple Pages)”. This option causes CanoScan to stop after each page is scanned and ask if there is a next page or if you are finished.
