Is it possible to scan multiple pages and save them as Page 1, Page 2, etc. within one PDF, using the C3180? If so, please tell me how I would do it. There is no option to scan a consecutive document or image after the first pass-through. Thanks!

I suggest you use the Lexmark Productivity Studio on your computer to scan to PDF. After scanning a page using the software, it will ask you if you want to scan another page. So just continue adding pages then save as PDF. Hope this helps. Leave a comment if you need more assistance and I'll get back to it. Thanks.
It is possible to scan different batches
scanned from the ADF into one PDF file. When loading more pages in the
ADF after the first realm is finished, it asks if you want to continue
scanning to the same file. After that, it will continue scanning to the
same file. However, this feature can be selected in the Adobe Acrobat
application itself. From HP software, if we load the paper after one
realm of paper in the ADF is finished, it will scan the second realm to
a different file.
If you want to continue scanning to the
same file, you need to have either Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat
installed on the computer. Adobe Reader will not provide this feature.
After installing either Adobe Acrobat or Acrobat Exchange, perform the following steps to scan pages to a single file:
Make sure your scanner is turned on.
Start Acrobat Exchange or Adobe Acrobat.
Put the document into the scanner (usually face down on the scan bed).
In Adobe Acrobat, click File
, then Import
, and Scan
Select the device and whether you are scanning a single- or double-sided document.
The scanning software opens and the scanner completes a preview scan.
When the preview scan comes up, make any adjustments you would
like, including selecting the area you want to appear in the final
. This will get the final scan into the computer.
Your scanning software should take you back to Adobe Acrobat.
In Adobe Acrobat, you should see a small window asking you if you
want to scan another page. If the document you are scanning has more
than one page, click the Next Page
button. If this is the only page, click Done
Scanning multiple pages
causes each page to append to the previously scanned page. If you have
multiple pages, but want them to be in different files, click Done
after each page to create separate files.
When you have scanned the last page, click Done
on the window described in step 10.
Your scanned pages will open in Adobe Acrobat. Scroll through to make sure that everything is there.
, and then Save As
to name your file and save it.
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.
Scan your multiple pages to an image file, like .jpg, I know it's tedious, name them (optional) by page number, put them into an empty folder.
When you're done with all the scanning, open the folder, select all of them, open with: Preview.
Now, you should see one page, with a side bar containing all of the pages. (If they're not in order, you can drag and drop within the sidebar to reorder.) Select all of those (Or Command A)
Command P (Or Print) In this window, you should see page one, and below that, make sure it says "Page 1 of XX"...this way you know you got 'em all, and it's your final opportunity to page through them all by clicking on the little arrows to make sure they're in the right order.
