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:
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!

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".

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"

I have downloaded n installed MP Navigator EX 5.1. I could not get it running. It complains bout Not being able to start..
I could RMC on my 'Canon MX890 series Printer WS' printer Icon to pick Scan. Then i could create an image file from
a scanned doc. could not figure out how to trigger OCR capability. Scan to to PDF? use a tool that can create word docs from PDF?
