  1. Why cannot I scan and save to PDF


    Hi the scanner only seems to allow certain file types for saving. All associated with photos and not documents.

    The favoured document saving file is PDF. Is there a way I can scan and save in PDF using Adobe reader DC?

    :)

  3. Cant save scanned docs as pdf's

    Hi Sharon,

    I realize the inconvenience you are facing. Let me help you in resolving the issue.

    I appreciate if you can provide us the following information to help us understand the issue better.

    • What is the location path, are you trying to save the scan file?
    • Do you have Windows reader installed in your PC?

    You need to have an application to read, and save your documents in PDF format.

    Download Windows Reader from Windows Store, and check if you are able to save your scanned copies in PDF format.

    Keep us posted on Windows related queries and we will be happy to assist you further.

    Thank you.
