You need one of those OCR (optical character recognition) software to scan documents as text. Your scanner may have a free version of this. A good example is Omnipage pro

Word docs sent as email attachments are arriving in my inbox as png files - useless. How do I change this please


.PNG stands for "Portable Network Graphics". Sounds like the sender may have scanned the document, and sent the scanned document to you? Scans will come out as either .png, .jpg, or .pdf formats.

If the file is a .png, you won't be able to edit in MS Word.

Another thing to check - Make sure when you are working on a Word Document, you are saving it as a .doc file.

  • Open MS Word Document
  • Do your editing
  • Click on the "Fille" button, and then select "save as" option
  • In the window that appears, next to the "save as type" wording click on the down triangle to see different formats to save. Select ".doc"
Bottom line... tell whomever is sending the emails with attachments, to send you the MS Word file, not a scanned file.

Looking for word document I did not save


The power just went out while you working on an important document you forgot to save.

Do not panic because Microsoft Word comes equipped with a feature that automatically will recover files you did not save.


Typically, this feature works by default.

The program allows you to change how often Word saves your documents and you can adjust the location where Microsoft Word saves these "Auto Recover" files.


Open up Microsoft Word.

Do not click on a file to open the program.

Instead, open the program by double-clicking on the program's icon.


Allow the program to load for a couple of minutes before clicking on anything.


Look on the left side of the screen.

If Microsoft Word recovered the file, a "Document Recovery" task pane will load.


Find the file's date.

Double-click on the file in the "Document Recovery" pane.


This will open the file in Microsoft Word.


Click on the "File Menu" and select "Save As."


Save the document as a ".doc" file type, and type a name for your document in the "File Name" box.


or


Open Microsoft Word to determine if the program auto-recovered your document.

If your software is set to auto-save your document every couple of minutes, when the program is restarted, any document that was not saved prior to closing, may appear in the auto-recover window on the left side of the screen.


Click on your document, and the last-saved file will open.

However, anything you typed after the last auto-save is gone, but at least you haven't lost the entire document.


Search the auto-recover files manually if the auto-recover pane did not appear when you opened MS Word.


Click the Start menu at the bottom of your computer screen, and click "Search." Some operating systems have the search option as a part of the Start menu.


Search for "*.asd" to search for any recovered files.


If you find the file, open Word, and click "Open" in the menu.

Search through all files, and locate the file that ended in .asd. Click "Open" to view your file.


If you are using Word 2002 or 2003, you need to restart your computer after clicking "Open." Re-open Word after your computer re-boots to view the recovered file.


Check your backup files.

If you have the "Always create backup copy" option selected in Word, you may be able to find a backup copy of your document.


Find the location where you last saved the document.

Check for the extension .wbk.


If there aren't any, search your whole computer for files with that extension.

Open your file by clicking "Open" in Word, and search all files for the .wbk extension.

Once you locate the file, click "Open."


Look in the temporary files on your computer.

Complete a search for files that end in the extension .tmp by typing "*.tmp" into the search box.


Narrow the search down to specific dates of when you were working on the document.

If the file does not show up, try searching for the "~*.*" convention.


Some temporary files are in this format instead.

If your document is now in your temporary files, you will need to recover the damaged document.

Search for it within Word.


Click "Open and Repair" when you find it.






Hope this helps

A full feature software and driver package for Windows 7 is not available for your product. However, the Windows 7 operating system installed on your computer contains a basic driver solution for your product. With the basic driver, some of the advanced product features are not available. You can print from a software program, and import and view images on a memory card, if your product has a memory card slot. With this basic driver, the buttons on the product do not function and some of the advanced product features are not available. How to Scan a Document in Windows 7 By Greg Harvey The Windows Fax and Scan utility enables you to scan documents and pictures. Before you can scan documents and pictures, you must have a scanner installed on your computer. Your scanner must be listed in the Devices section of the Devices and Printers Control Panel window.

To check to see if your scanner is properly installed, open the Device Stage. Choose Start?Devices and Printers. If Windows doesn't automatically find your scanner, you can manually add it in the Devices and Printers window by clicking the Add a Device button in the toolbar and following the wizard's commands.

  1. Choose Start?All Programs?Windows Fax and Scan.

    Windows 7 opens the Windows Fax and Scan window.

  2. Click the Scan button in the Navigation pane, then click the New Scan button on the toolbar.

    The New Scan dialog box for your scanner opens.

  3. Use the settings on the right to describe your scan.

    By letting the computer know what you're scanning, its color profile, and the type of file you plan to create, you enable Windows Fax and Scan to create the highest quality scan.

  4. Click the Preview button to see what your document will look like.

    Make any last minute changes.

  5. If you're happy with the preview, click the Scan button.

    Windows scans the document and presents you with an image of your document.

  6. Click the Save As button and complete the necessary information.

    Enter the filename, the type of graphics file you want saved, and then click the Save button.

To automatically forward the document you've just scanned as an attachment to a new fax message, click the Forward as Fax button.

The scan feature in the Windows Fax and Scan utility is set primarily to scan text documents. If you want to scan a photograph or other graphic, you're better off doing that directly within the Windows Live Photo Gallery.

I have a Lexmark 8300 most funtions work well from time to time scanning is an issue however OCR funtion WILL NOT WORK. I have the Instal CD, it seams to instal but can not use the function. I am running...


You must have a WORD TYPE program to save the scan too. I had this same problem until I installed Microsoft Office 2003 as well. It has been awhile but that is the case and mine now works perfect. You can get a free download of it for trial use. Or even an open source word program will work. If it ask you where to save the scan choose word or office if you already have them. the reason is you must use an editable program to edit the document.
Don't be surprised if the document you see isn't 100% as the document you scan because this is normal. You must be 100% that your scanned document matches - it is up to you to edit it for mistakes as they are not perfect. Some are in fact way better than others. The program with Lexmark is usually good. c88085b.jpg

If I scan a blank application to be completed after its scanned in order to print the completed application, I can't find a way to add and or edit text on it.


if you scan a document it will be a photograph   editing a document is done in a text application like word or notepad   the two are completely different things   i use text bridge  or Paperport Professional  it will read the text off of the scanner bed and convert to a text document   it may make some errors but will still save much time rewriting the document  add the saved text to word and change the font and spacing to try to duplicate the original document  save it  then edit it to your hearts desire

I want to scan a form and save it, and be able to fill in the blanks later. I can save it as a pdf document, but can't edit it.


When you scan it, the original manufacurer's software should allow you to save it as a Word document or some other editable format. PDF, JPG, TIF, and other image formats probably won't work.

I don't know how to save a scanned document onto my computer. I currently have a HP photosmart3110 All-in-one printer fax scanner copier


Hi
All you need to do is use the scanning software provided with the HP device.

Before scanning it will ask you to look at the preview....when you are happy with the preview start the scanning and then it will ask you where to save it....it might also save it automatically....in which case it will be saved in your my pictures folder.

cheers

We have a canon MP610 printer scanner combo, I work in a dentist office and am trying to scan a x-ray. When I do it is'nt picking up the detail very well at all. I think I need to adjust the settings but I...


the only way to get a little more detail out of this printer with x-rays is to INCREASE the DPI resolution. there are no other adjustments that are abailable.
The Scan Settings dialog box opens when you click Specify... on the Scan/Import Documents or images screen.
The Scan Settings dialog box allows you to specify advanced settings for scanning.

Document Type
Select the type of document to be scanned. To scan photographs, select either Color Photo or Black and White Photo. To scan text documents, select either Color Document, Black and White Document, or Text(OCR). To scan magazines, select Magazine(Color).
Document Size
Select the size of document to be scanned.
Auto Detect: Detects document size automatically.
Auto Detect(Multiple Documents): Select this when scanning multiple documents at one time.
Select Stitch-assist to scan the left and right halves of a document separately and combine them back into one image.
Reference See the section below for details.
Scanning images Larger than the Platen (Stitch Assist)
When you select Custom, a dialog box in which you can specify the document size opens. Select a Unit, then enter the Width and Height and click OK.

Important When you select Auto Detect the position or size of the image may not be scanned correctly depending on the document. In such a case, specify the document size, such as A4 or Letter according to the document to be scanned, and align a corner of the document with the corner at the arrow of the platen.
When you select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) allow 3/8 inches (1 cm) or more space between the edges of the platen and the document.
If not, some images may not be scanned at the correct positions and sizes.
You cannot select Auto Detect(Multiple Documents) or Auto Detect when Document Type is Text(OCR).
Scanning Resolution<<<<-------------------------------------------------------------<<<<<<<<<<
Select the resolution at which to scan documents. The following scanning resolution can be specified:
Text(OCR): 300dpi, 400dpi
Others: 75dpi, 100dpi, 150dpi, 200dpi, 300dpi, 400dpi, 600dpi
The higher the resolution (value), the more detail in your image; the lower the resolution (value), the less detail. At high resolution, scanning takes longer and file size becomes larger than usual. See the section below for details on resolution.
this should answer your question , feel free to post here agian if you need more help.
Regards, and thank you for using fixya.
