Scanning to a PDF File in Office Mode, Home Mode, or Professional Mode

    • In Home Mode window, select the Document Type, Image Type, and Destination setting.

    • Note: In Home Mode you can only scan from the document table. If you want to scan using the ADF, change to Office Mode or Professional Mode.

    • In Professional Mode window, select the Document Type, Document Source, Auto Exposure Type, Image Type, and Resolution settings.

  8. Select one of the following options:

    • Add page: Click this button to scan the next page of your document. Replace the first page on the document table with the next page, and click Scan. Repeat this step for each page in your document.

    • Edit page: Click this button if you have scanned all the necessary pages so you can edit the scanned pages before saving them in one PDF file.

    • Save File: Click this button when you are ready to finish scanning and save the scanned pages into one PDF without editing them.

  9. The pages are saved in one PDF file in My Documents, My Pictures, or the location you selected in the File Save Settings window, and you return to the Office Mode, Home Mode, or Professional Mode window.
