Creating a multi-page document (or pdf file) for attachment

Postby David W » 30 May 2015, 18:02

Has anyone ever created and attached a pdf document file that contains more than one page?

My scanner seems willing to create pages that are all in pdf format. Is it generally automatic that those pages are numbered and are all assumed to be part of the same document?

How did you instruct your scanner to create a multiple page document that was suitable as a single attachment to a post here?

Thanks for looking.

Well, a multifunction colour copy machine with automatic feeder does such... the stack of pages in the paper feed will end up as one *.pdf file on its internal hard-disk...

Alternatively one could use the [merge documents into *.pdf] function within Adobe Acrobat; the v.XI features a drag&drop window where one then can arrange the order/sequence of the separate documents... create, safe as (maybe use the compress function) and continue as desired...

The software for our printer/scanner/copier allows for the creation of PDF files. Scan the page and save to pdf but if more than one page is needed it gives the option to save or add another page.....repeat process as often as there are pages. On the last page you just save and the software converts it to a PDF file.

That's how my Kodak Hero does it.

My Epson scanner also lets you add multiple pages to a single PDF document, even when not using the document feeder.

Thanks to all.

It sounds as if it is the scanner itself that normally creates the multiple page .pdf file.
I will give that approach a try soon.

Thanks again.

I could be mistaken, but can't you create a Word file/document and then do a "Save As" version in PDF format...?

Open Office is a good alternative to MS Office and can create/save a PDF file. I use it a lot.

I have a Canon scanner and it pops up a dialog box to save or continue after it has completed a scan. So long as you don't save, each new scan is added to the first. When you're done, name and save the file as a multi page single document. There's no feeder on my cheapo scanner so this is the only way to do it. Some scanners / printers might require that the scanner manufacturer's full software suite be installed.
