MX922 scanning

I have converted to Mountain Lion and have loaded the new scanner driver.  However, with Lion when I scanned a multipage document, the scanner software kept it together as one document.  Now it is coming out as separate pages and I have to set up folders for them to keep them together.  How do I change the settings to have multipage scans stay together?

Re: MX922 scanning

Hi rslifer,


Making an adjust to the IJ Scan Utility settings should fix this problem.  Follow these steps:


  1. Open the IJ Scan Utility.
  2. Click the Settings... button in the bottom right of the window.
  3. Highlight Document Scan, to view the document scan settings.
  4. In the Save Settings section, change the Data Format to PDF (Multiple Pages) and click OK
  5. Back at the IJ Scan Utility window, load your documents in the ADF and click the Document button to start your scan.

If you have any other questions on adjusting your scan settings, please feel free to Contact Us!

Re: MX922 scanning

Any chance that the 922 will be able to run MP Navigator in the future?  I have an 870 and find that the software interface (MP navigator) is much easier to use and much more intuitive than the software that came with the 922.


I'm used to just dumping a pile of papers in the ADF on the 870.  I select single/double sided and color/B&W and I get a nice list of thumbnails after the scannng is complete.  Then I can simply check what thumbnails belong together.  I can make 1 document, or many individual ones.


With the 922, it seems like I have to scan each document (single or multiple page) as a scan.  I used the IJ scan utility to set the parameters for each scan.  It seems like a step backward to me from my 870 software.


FWIW, I the MP navigator won't recognize my 922.


Any support/advice would be appreciated.  I love my new 922, but the scanning functionality for my particular needs does not meet my expectations.

Re: MX922 scanning

Hello kaylorsan.


The MX922 cannot be used with the MP Navigator.  Scanning with the MX922 would have to be done with the IJ Scan Utility or the My Image Garden program.
