HP Scanjet Professional 3000 Run Acrobat event on button manager

Is it possible to have Adobe Acrobat run when I press the scan button on the face of the Scanjet Pro. 3000 instead of Paperport. I like scanning with Adobe Acrobat. Adobe Acrobat isn't in the button event list. Thanks! Jereme

Re: HP Scanjet Professional 3000 Run Acrobat event on button manager

Yes, you can use the Scanjet Button Configuration utility to open any application software you will configure for the button press, including Adobe Acrobat Reader / Professional.


But the image scanned by scanner needs to be to converted to .PDF file type first, hence Acrobat Reader will open, but cannot read/open the image file scanned by scanner.


In other words, if you have Adobe Reader, it will not be able to read the image file unless converted to .PDF.  You will nead document editing software like Acrobat Professional or Paper Port, which will first read image file & convert it to .PDF file format.


Hope this helps!
