Before I scan to .pdf format I have to open Adobe, click help and do a repair of the installation. If I don't do this my text is only partially legible (large chunks have lines going through, much like a bar code you scan at the store). I've tried doing the repair, scanning/saving one set of documents and then scanning/saving another set right away. The first scanned/saved image is fine; the second is as described above. Should I just uninstall and reinstall the adobe? I have installed the most recent free version and checked for updates as recently as 3 days ago (none). Thanks in advance.

I know only that classic repair pdf can't help you. Alternative solutions might be Adobe pdf and other resources from Adobe https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/quick-fix-view-pdfs-web.html https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/troubleshoot-pdf-printing-acrobat-reader.html
If you use a PC, you can use software you already have on your computer to retrieve some of the content. Right-click on the corrupt file and choose 'Open With' and select the Notepad program that comes bundled with every copy of Windows. The resulting file will contain a lot of coding but within that coding you will see the content. This is perhaps a only really viable with text-only PDFs as when you are dealing with images and forms, Notepad will be swamped with coding and finding the text can be the proverbial needle in the haystack.

The HP SCANNER SPECS say:
Scan file format
Bitmap (.bmp), JPEG (.jpg), PNG (.png), TIFF (.tif), PDF (.pdf), Searchable PDF (.pdf), Text (.txt), Rich Text (.rtf).
That means it is supported. What you can try is to try and uninstall ("Programs and Features in Windows) the Adobe PDF program and get the free one to install again from: http://www.adobe.com/products/reader.html
If it still doesn't work (links itself into Windows and the HP software), try reinstalling the HP software or go to HP.COM and you can download the latest full-version file for your 4625 printer.
The answer is yes to both questions. Follow the instructions below:- 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
You need to scan into a Word Processor, like, Word or Adobe PDF, or Publisher, you need OCR (Optical Character recognition)software to have this. Scanners usually ONLY scan as Pictures. and save as Picture files, BMP, MPG, TIFF. NOT as text.'
If u try to scan from sollution centre, on the home page if u click on scan a document, there u will get an option of file format select pdf and click on scan.
make sure the u have adobe reader install in ur pc
-you need to have a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat Reader
-if you have the program already; you need to include the program in the printer scan settings
-you need to open the Printer program then click on the scan category and select the Adobe program and set it as default to have a pdf format.
You can't. You could try loading the Adobe professional software, but I do not think it lets you edit PDF's
If the Doc contains words you can OCR (Optical Character Recognition) it (ie read it) edit it an dthen create a new PDF.
Try the software DESKPDF. it can any convert any format to PDF file. U can get this software from http://www.docudesk.com/ with trial version. After installing the software u just drag the scanned image and drop the icon of deskpdf software. It will convert the pdf form.
