I am scanning to pdf and am able to create and save the files. Periodically, the system will suddenly start opening adobe (previewing document) after I close the Scandall21 program, and have named the file. If Adobe program opens, then the system just hangs, and the file does not save.
I have tried leaving it to see if it will complete, but after 20 minutes, I end task. It is now continuing to preview the document in adobe and hanging on every scan I do.
If I log in as another user, I have no problem. At least until it starts happening to this user.
Is this a bug? I've looked at file size & it doesn't seem to matter what size. I am scanning only one page & same thing happens.

There is no easy way of doing this.
What you can do is scan each page as an image file, then use an OCR program to convert each page into a text file and save them. Then open a fresh/new Word document, then open each text file page and copy and paste each text file page into this Word document.
After you have copied all the pages into this Word document, then spell check it, edit and format the text then save the document. You can then create a PDF file from this Word document if you need to.
First, scan and save document. Second, download this free neat tool. It will allow you to print as a PDF. When you open the document, you press print, choose cutePDF and it will save the file as a PDF to location of your choice.
Hope this helps!
You , nor anyone else,cannot scan and save as an ADOBY PDF file. To creat a PDF file requires either the ADOBY writting software of another software that saves in the PDF file format.
Scanners take a picture of what ever is layed on them and copies then by breaking them into millions of dots and then saving as a picture in a format such as JPEG. Sorry
