Re: Will the PIXMA MX892 scan a document into a PDF?

Hello Diplomat,

 

Yes, there is a program that comes with the printer named MP Navigator that can assist you with scanning in documents as PDF files.  The MP Navigator program can be downloaded from the Canon USA website.  The following link will take you to the initial download page for your PIXMA MX892:

http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/printers_multifunction/pixma_mx_series/pixma_mx892#Dr...


Once on the initial download page for your model, please do the following:


1.  Select your operating system from the "SELECT OPERATING SYSTEM" drop-down menu, then please use the "SELECT OS VERSION" drop-down menu to select the version of the operating system that is on the computer where will be installing the software.  (You may need to scroll down in the list to find the version of your operating system). 


2.  Next, please click on the red arrow next to the "SOFTWARE" section and click the MP NAVIGATOR EX file.  When you do, another page will appear giving details of the file you are about to download will appear. 


3.  Please scroll down on the Details page and agree to the terms of the disclaimer message to continue with the download process by clicking on the "I AGREE - BEGIN DOWNLOAD" button.  After clicking the "I AGREE - BEGIN DOWNLOAD" button, follow the instructions to download and install the software.  The time for the download process may vary depending on the speed of your Internet connection and the size of the file being downloaded.

 

If you need assistance scanning a document in as a PDF after downloading MP Navigator, please reply back with what operating system is on your computer (Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 or Mac OS version) and we will be happy to provide instruction.

 

Hope this helps!

Re: Will the PIXMA MX892 scan a document into a PDF?

I am using Windows 7.  I scan a 20 page document and I get 20 PDF files.  I have looked in MP Navigator and can't find a setting that will MERGE these 20 to one, nor do I see a way to default to "save to single file".

 

Can you assist? I need more help than "see MP Navigator".

 

Thanks

Jim Bruce

Re: Will the PIXMA MX892 scan a document into a PDF?

I found MP Navigator already installed fromthe original Canon pinter install, using the MX892

 

I clicked on Start Button--[Search programs and files] MP-Navigator

 

After finding the MP-Navigagtor EX 5.1 file I dragged it to my taksbar because I needed it frequently.

 

Click on the EX 5.1 icon , I left the document feeder empty

 

At first the system tried to use the empty doc feeder,then it went to a setup menu

 

 

   Scan photos or documents and Save them as PDF files

 

IMPORTANT  Select  (x)  Automatically save the image to your computer after scanning it

 

                        Set image type to  "PDF multiple pages"  <--Crucial setting

 

Make other default settings as you please 

 

You can set the other settings as you please, but  I found it useful to create a folder c:\scans so that it didn't file pdfs by my logon name documets--pictures etc. where I would have a hard timefinding them. When you have finished your setup, click apply

 

Put your document in,

 

Scan it this time to a sensible "multiple -page to single pdf file" 

 

Jim
