Question about Brother MFC 8440 All-In-One Laser Printer

Open Question

I am using a MFC-8440 all-in-one with Mac10.5.8 OS, when I scan a document to a .pdf file only about 80% of the page appears when opened in preview. When scanned as a .jpg the whole document appears when opened in preview. I use the .pdf format to email and archive so it is very important to be able to use the .pdf format when scanning, this problem started occurring about 2 weeks ago and everything I try has no effect. Please Help. Thank You

SOURCE: Can I scan a document to PDF?

any scanner, indeed any document, picture format can be saved as pdf. i would suggest first scanning the document as text (for example to words, or openoffice or indeed whatever you use as your document management program) and then port it (sort of print operation) to any free available "translator" program which allow you to save file as pdf. alternatively you can scan your document as jpeg and then save it as pdf, but this tend to produce very messy outlook and results are usually horrible.

Scanning Multiple pages into one pdf


Scanning a multi-page document as a .pdf file reverts the settings for rotation, selected area, etc. to default for any pages after the first page. This applies to Mac OSX 10.3, 10.4, & 10.5. A simple, but tedious work-around is to scan each page as a separate file and easily recombine them using OSX Preview. Just open the first page, view the Sidebar, and drag-drop the additional page files into the sidebar. Save and it's all one multi-page .pdf.

MCF 6490CW SCAN AS A PDF


I was trying to figure out how to scan multi-page documents to a single file and found this on the Brother website:

Double-click on the ControlCenter3 icon located in the Task Tray to launch the program window.

Click on CONFIGURATION -> SCAN.

Choose the type of scan you require. The choices are: IMAGE,
E-MAIL, and FILE.

The Scan to configuration window will appear.

The SOFTWARE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to button within theControlCenter3 software interface. The DEVICE BUTTON tab configures the Scan to key on the Brother machine. Choose the tab you want to configure.

Under FILE TYPE select an option that allows multi-page documents:

a) PDF (*.PDF)
b) Tiff Multi-Page # Uncompressed (*.tif)
c) Tiff Multi-Page # Compressed (*.tif)

Click OK.

Pdf automatically opens, then system just hangs


I think the problem lies in your Comp or the Adobe reader. Reinstall Adobe reader, try a later version. Also run scandisk to check if the OS is okay.
