Scanning to a multi-page PDF file

Ever wanted to be able to scan in and send a multi-page document to a colleague, or a long magazine article to a friend overseas? Use VueScan's multi-page PDF feature, and you won't have to send them as individual image files any more.

Here's how to do it:

Adjust output settings

  1. Select the Output tab at the top of the Options panel
  2. Click the two tick boxes: PDF file and PDF multi page

Load and preview first page

  1. Follow steps 1 and 2 in the Basic Workflow section of the tutorial to preview the first page of your document
  2. Click the Scan button

Scan each page in succession

  1. Place the next page in the same position and same orientation as the first
  2. Click the Scan button
  3. Repeat until the document has finished scanning
  4. TIP: You can automate this process - just follow the instructions in step 3 of the Scanning many photographs in a batch section

Finishing the job

  1. Click the File menu at the top of the window and select File | Last page
  2. VueScan automatically names the file and launches the PDF in Adobe Acrobat Reader for you so you can check it.
