This depends upon the Scanning software you are using. if you are using DR series of Scanners, you can download Captureperfect 2 from the Internet which has the option to save directly as a PDF file.

How do I dlete scanned items


The scanned items should be stored somewhere on your computer as an image file(JPG, TIF, BMP, or PDF). Typically, when you scan a document you decide where to save the document. Simply browse to where the scanned documents are, right-click on one of the files then click Delete. This should delete the scanned document.

My hp laser jet 3052 cannot scan documents in pdf.It is only giving options to save either in jpeg, tif, bmg format. There is no pdf format.


You may need to purchase a scanner to get a PDF like Acrobat Reader. But if you managed to save to PDF before, try to reinstall the software and add software and choose OCR. Most of the HP PDF capablility is together with its OCR software.

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.

Cant save a scanned document as a pdf


You have to make sure your telling your scanner what your scanning. Most often it defaults as a mixed image meaning text and image. You have to tell it to scan text only and then see what options you have. If this doesnt help then do as i stated above choosing text only and save to computer as a microsoft word document. Now make sure you have latest Acrobat reader 9.0 installed and now with your word document open in top left File button there should be an option to convert to pdf format. I hope this helps and good luck

Hi,I have got a Canon,smartbase MPC 400 printer/scanner. My question is: How can I scan a document straight to a PDF file,because it only gives me options for TIF,BMP and JPEG. I have downloaded a TIF to...


I'm using an MP780. Usually when I scan an image to jpeg I press START, CANON, SCANGEAR STARTER. This open a window to ScanGear MP. Since I use the Advance Tab I can set the DPI and whatever outputs. The DPI rsolution will determine the size of the file also. When it is finished scanning it goes to the next window which has Save As Type and Save Scanned Image to. Save As Type is where you can choose JPG or TIFF or BMP. Hope this helps.
