Question about HP Printers & Copiers

4 Answers

I have a HP deskjet F100 All-in-One series printer.I have been trying to scan a document,using HP solution Centre, to change the text. The scanned document is appearing on the screen but it is not the right size and I cannot fix the cursor onto the text that I need to change. Instead of the cursor I am getting a cross shaped symbol. Please help Thanks Freddie Slater

If you want to change the file format of a document ebfore scanning , Just open the document example in Word, Paint then click File menu then look for Save as then you can have a option to change the file format on a drop down box that says Save as Type then choose the file format that you want...

Hope that helps..........

Scan your document to Wordpad then Save AS whatever doc type you need. Then open the new document in your writing program and make your changes.

Usually the CROSS on the cursor mean that the mouse pointer is hovered over an "image" not text. usually this appears when you are trying to crop a part of the image for copy and paste purposes. you may save the scanned document and use the solution center to resize the document.

    if i understood that right, you want to scan a document like a picture that has a TEXT in it, then use your HP solutions center to extract the text from that picture and change it right? if yes then let us know what specific software / version you are using to do this.



    if not, then we standby.

My HP Deskjet F4280 all in one scans only to Photo Smart. I need to scan it to documents so I can send documents by email. How do I get it to scan to documents?


You need to install OCR by Iris software. This will allow you to scan and convert it to rich text file (.rtf) /editable text. Some HP AIO like HP c309a have free basic OCR software. you can download c309a full feature driver and software and just get the OCR software.

I have a hp 1310 AIO Printer how do you scan documents to computer using such programmes as ms word


MS Word cannot open scanned documents to edit. You need to run a scanned document through an OCR program (optical character recognition program) which converts the scanned document into a text document. Then you open Ms Word and import or open this text document to edit or change the text.
