Canon MAXIFY MB5100 Series (MAXIFY MB5170) user from Malaysia.

Can the MAXIFY MB5170's scanner software from Canon ( IJ Scan Utility) scan and save as PDF format in 1 click? Or 2-3 steps.

I wanted to know if this is a feature that your software supports or am I lacking some integration or module to make it function as described. Summary: can the software do : Scan -> Save as PDF Format. Also adjust contrast / brightness with Live preview and undo button, is it possible?
