Re: HP officejet 6500 - scan multiple pages into one pdf file

Hi,

I have a similar problem when trying to scan pages of my scrap book to a single pdf file. Where do I go to change the settings.

Got it.

 

To change scan settings

 

Windows: Open the HP Solution Center, select Settings, select Scan Settings and Preferences, then select from the available options and make your selections.

 

  HP Device Manager (Mac OS X): Launch HP Device Manager, click Information and Settings, and then select Scan Preferences from the drop-down list.

Scanning multiple pages of different sizes or from book.

Read this link to learn how to do that task.

I changed unchecked the save to individual file and was able to scan 2 pages in and save as one pdf file.

 

Thanks for your help

Yep, that's step 4 of my instructions, as mentioned in the link, in my post above.

Re: HP officejet 6500 - scan multiple pages into one pdf file

My multi page scans used to save to a single pdf file, but suddenly started to save all the pages separately.  (HP 6500A Plus - software version 3.3.0 - Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4) The answer listed this solution:

 

HP Device Manager (Mac OS X): Launch HP Device Manager, click Information and Settings, and then select Scan Preferences from the drop-down list.

 

I do not have an HP Device Manager, only HP Utility.  The only Scan Setting is Scan to Computer, and there is no Information and Settings and no drop-down.  In HP Scan, preferences do not list anything related to this.  What am I missing?  Where is this hiding??!!??

I found this document that says you need HP Scan 3 to change any of the scan settings.  Hope it helps.

Re: HP officejet 6500 - scan multiple pages into one pdf file

Thanks, Shane, but i have and use HP Scan 3 when scanning from the computer.  It does not have these scan settings or preferences either (that i could find).  Any other ideas?
