How do I scan multiple pages into one pdf file using the PIXMA MG7520 on Windows 8.0? Please help!

I recently received a PIXMA MG7520 for a gift.  It works great with my lenovo laptop/tablet running on Windos 8.0.  The one drawback to the HP all-in-one that it replaced is it does not have an ADF.  That being said, there must be some way to scan multiple pages into one pdf file.  I need help figuring thing out.  Thanks in advance!

Hi mdtolbert54,

 

There is a program that comes with the printer called the IJ Scan Utility that can assist you with scanning multiple pages into a single PDF document.  To do this, please follow these steps:

 

1. On your keyboard, press the Windows key.

 

2. Start typing IJ SCAN UTILITY. The search window opens as you type. Once the IJ SCAN UTILITY is displayed, please select and open it.

 

3. In the Canon IJ Scan Utility window that opens, click SETTINGS.... in the bottom right of the window. The Settings dialog box appears.

 

4. Click the DOCUMENT SCAN option on the left pane of the window.

 

5. In the SAVE SETTINGS section of the window, you will select the save format and location of the document you are about to scan.

 

a.) In the FILE NAME field, specify the name you would like to give the file. By default the filename will begin with IMG; you can remove IMG and change it to whatever you would like to name the file.

 

b.) In the DATA FORMAT field, use the drop-down arrow to select the PDF (Multiple Pages) option. 

 

c.) In the SAVE IN field, please navigate to the area where you would like the file to be saved once it is scanned in. By default, the file will be saved in the MY DOCUMENTS folder.

 

6. Once all settings have been selected, click the OK button at the bottom of the window to save the changes. The IJ Scan Utility main screen appears.

 

7. Click the DOCUMENT button. Scanning starts. Click the CANCEL button to cancel scanning if needed. Scanned items are saved in previously selected folder location specified in the SETTINGS... window.

 

If you find that you need advanced scanning options such as adjusting resolution, brightness, contrast, saturation, color balance, etc. in addition to the options selected above, please click on the SCANGEAR button on the IJ Scan Utility Main screen, then adjust the items as necessary.

 

Once the items above are set for document scanning, in the future, you will only need to launch the IJ Scan Utility, then press the DOCUMENT button to perform the scan (unless you want to make changes to the settings).


Hope this helps!

Ramona ... thanks .... I still had to call support for help guieding through the problem.  Seems I had a setting that needed to be changed and the Canon tech found it immediately.  My PIXMA has numerous features that will take me time to figure out.  My only complaint is that it doesn't have a ADF.

I also have the MG7520 & finally figured out how to scan multiple pages at once.  When you bring up your scan task bar, you will have a choice of clicking on:  Auto, Document, Photo, Custom, Stitch , Scan Gear....and underneath are 2 other options:  The word "instructions" on the left and "settings" on the right.  Click on SETTINGS. 

On the far left side of the page there are a list of scanning options, click the one that says:  "DOCUMENT SCAN" 

When that opens, look under "Save Settings" and there will be a list of 4 settings.  Go to "DATA FORMAT"  and cllick the arrow to the far right and it gives you a choice of:  JPEG, TIFF, PNG, PDF & PDF (multiple pages)

Naturally you want the last one "PDF (multiple pages)

After you click on that, click OK at the bottom of the page and you will now be able to start scanning multiple pages into one PDF document. 

This option is also available in Custom Scan, Scan & Stitch & ScanGear.  Hope this helps!

I believe this addresses creating a document with multiplle pages.  Is there a way to feed pages into the printer for scanning (as you would for printing) rather than adding one page for scanning at a time in the top of the printer (MG 5720)?
