About 2 months ago I bought a Canon TR 4520 AiO Printer to use mainly for scanning documents since my HP 3630 stopped working and the relationship I am having with the Canon printer has been a trying one at best. The manual and user guide are a nightmare, written very obtusely and all but impossible to make any sense of at all.
I scan a lot of documents, in fact every document I get is scanned. Probably 95% of the scanning I do is done on the flat bed and not through the document feeder due to the fact that most of the documents I get are 2 sided. Setting this printer up to manually scan documents were it asked my on the display screen if I have additional pages is a mess and a horrible nightmare due to the poor way the scanner on-screen control panel works. Every time I have to do a scan I have to use the onboard control panel to teach the printer how to scan manually and 90% of the time it doesn't work and I have to start all over again which is very frustrating.and a completely unnecessary nightmare.
I need for someone to provide me with the steps needed to set this printer up to scan documents manually where the printer asks me on the display screen if I have more pages to scan Yes - No?
Please DO NOT reply and post some link pointing me to some web site or wiki, I have looked at all of those and they are useless. They do not give me the information I need and are a complete and total waste of my time. Here are my system specs:
Canon TR 4520 AiO Printer.
Printer is connected wirelessly via home WiFi to computer.
Dell Optiplex 9020 Printer w/ 32 Gigs of DDR 3 RAM; 250 Gig SSD.
Windows 10 Pro with ALL service packs and updates installed.
Hi. I see that you need to set up your scanner so that it will ask you if there are more pages to scan. You also mention that you are scanning documents. I assume that you would like to save them as PDF files.
The key to doing what you want to do is selecting PDF or Compact PDF as the data format. You also need to load the document directly on the glass. If you choose a different data format or if you load the document in the feeder, the printer will not ask you if you want to continue scanning. It will just send the scanned data directly to the computer.
Here are the steps you should take to ensure that the printer asks if you want to continue scanning:

I hope this information helps. Thank you for choosing Canon.
