Converting a Print Document into a PDF File Using the PDF Scanner
These instructions are for use of the PDF scanner in Fuller Labs, Room B24.
Benefits of Using the PDF Scanner:
- You are able to create PDF files from hardcopy documents.
Using the PDF Scanner
- Lay the document you wish to create as a PDF face up on the tray (not on the glass flatbed - that is for scanning images).
- On the display panel, you will see three options:
- Describe Original
- Copy Settings
The default settings on the PDF scanner are set for a standard letter-sized, black & white PDF file to be created from mixed-media (text and image content). You may adjust these settings by accessing the different options:
- Describe Original allows you to adjust...
- Size (letter, legal, etc.)
- Sides (one-sided or two-sided document)
- Content (Text, Image/Photo, Mixed-media)
- Copy Settings allows you to adjust the copy machine functions of the PDF scanner. This option is not relevant to the creation of a PDF document.
- Email allows you to define the From, To, Cc, and Subject fields as you would when sending any e-mail. There is also a Settings button which enables you to change...
- Color (black & white or color)
- File Type (PDF, TIFF, MTIFF, JPEG)
The PDF scanner searches by e-mail address, not by name, so you will need to know the email address of the recipient you wish to receive the PDF file.
- Once you have entered the settings, press the large blue-green button labeled Start to begin the PDF process.
All settings may be returned to the default by pressing the Reset button, located just above the Start button.
