mx920 Multi-page scan


How do I scan multiple pages to a single PDF using the MX920 ADF? It was much easier to do with my previous printer.





Hi cgd14,


There is a program that comes with the printer called the IJ Scan Utility that can assist you with scanning multipage documents to a single PDF file.  To scan using the IJ Scan Utlity, please follow these steps:

1.  Place the documents on the platen glass of the printer.

2.  Start IJ Scan Utility by going to your Start menu, then selecting All Programs, then Canon Utilities, then  IJ Scan Utility (folder), then IJ Scan Utility (program).

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, then set the item size, resolution, etc. as required.  
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 SETTINGS (DOCUMENT SCAN) window.  The IJ Scan Utility main screen appears.

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

Hope this helps!

Thank you for your help!  Your instructions were explicit and easy to follow.  The manual, unfortunately, does not address where to find the IJ utility.  Intuitively, one would think it would be within the app under the shortcut on my desktop.  Alas, that was not the case.
