Canon MX 530 Printer - How to scan multiple documents to .pdf NOT using the ADF


Canon MX 530 Printer - 


Was wondering if there was a way to scan multiple documents (2 sided) to .pdf but NOT using the ADF?  For example, I have 3 double sided index card size documents.  I'm wondering if I can scan to .pdf one side by placing the document on the glass and then the second side and then document 2 side 1 and then side 2 etc so they all end up in to one .pdf document.


Seems all the manual says is you have to feed them in the auto document feeder and not be able to scan several documents to one .pdf file by just placing them on the glass.
