HP Deskjet F4180-no option to save as PDF

Hi I'm having an issue and need to find out how to fix it. I'm scanning a document and unable to save file as a PDF. I've uninstalled Acrobat Reader 9 and installed version 5. I uninstalled the software for HP & re installed it again. Still nothing. The reason why I'm so frustrated is that for weeks I've been able to scan documents & save them as PDF. But last week my laptop's hard drive crashed, so I lost everything and had to reinstall everything I had prior. Now I'm having this problem. Any suggestions?

A simple solution to this problem is to scan to JPG as normal and then print the JPG to a PDF using one of the very good "print to PDF" utilities like the Cute PDF writer.

Good luck.

I have been trying to set scanner resolution on this DESKJET F4180 but to no avail.
Does anyone know if that is an option at all? I want a lower resolution for my scanner so that it scan faster.

Thank You.

I've been having the same problem. There is a forum on Amazon.com that says you must have Abode Acrobat for this function, not just Adobe Reader.

HP DJ F2235 doesn't have PDF option to scan PDF


Scan to PDF requires third-party software and linking that software to the HP Solution Center. The HP imaging software only saves to BMP, DCX, FPX, GIF, JPG, PCD, PCX, and TIF. You need a program like PaperPort or save the document as an image and then convert it to a PDF (using Microsoft Office, another Office Suite, or a dedicated image to PDF conversion program.)

I wish that I had better news for you. PaperPort can be found for $50 from some vendors after rebate.

I have an HP Officejet 6500. I want to scan a document to a PDF, then upload it to a website. How do I do it? I scanned the document, but now I can't find the PDF.


(1.) Start / All Programs / HP / HP Viewer / Scan Document (icon is in left margin)
(2.) A small screen appears entitled "Select Source", and provides the "HP Officejet 6200 Series TWAIN" option. Highlight this then click "select".
(3.) I accept the default provided on the next screen (i.e., radio buttons for "Document" & "Scan for editable text"; "Scan to:" (drop box) "HP Document Viewer; check "Show Preview" box; then click "Scan".
(4.) After a brief pause, my printer scans, then the HP Document Viewer screen on the PC provides a small image of the scanned document and allows me to click the "accept" icon.
(5.) After "accepting" the scan into the HP Document Viewer, it takes a minute for it to appear in the "viewer". Notice that the "View Thumbnails" tab is highlighted at the top of this screen. Click the check-box next to the scanned item then click the "View Page" tab just to the right of the "View Thumbnails" tab.
(6.) The new screen should show a larger version of your scanned document. Now notice the "Save As" icon in the upper left corner. Click that, then "yes" to warning default screen, then select a file name and location to save it into.
(7.) Before clicking save, click the drop box next to the "Save as type:" and select one of the pdf options. Mine offers: "PDF 1-bit", PDF 8-bit Grayscale", and "PDF 24-bit Color" options. Choose one of them then click "save".
(8.) You should then be able to find the scanned pdf file in the directory you selected to save it under.

Note that you may need all of the HP printer utilities and tool software installed for this to work. If you don't, you may need to uninstall/reinstall the printer software.

HP WILL NOT SCAN AS PDF FILE


It'll not scan as PDF instead you need to save the image as PDF or change the settings to save to PDF by default
Follow instructions to change the default settings using the manuals:

Can't save my scans in pdf form


This can possibly solve your problem:

0. you should have the CD that came along with the printer. the solution that is listed below is working for windows xp operating system.
1. Browse the CD -> Go to the Setup folder. -> Go to the DocProc folder. -> Double-click Docproc.msi to install. you will not see any progress etc.,
2. Browse the CD -> Go to the Setup folder. -> Go to Qfolder . -> Double-click Qfolder.msi to install. same as above.
3. Go back to your HP solution centre and under scan settings option you shhould get to see the PDF options (and a few others as well).

cheers

Save to drop down option


HP automatically saves to the My Scans folder if you are on a Windows OS/ Platform. You can change this in the in HP Director Appplication that ships with most HP's. The route to there is: - Start - All Programs - HP (or Hewlitt Packard) - HP Director - Settings.

Hope this help.
