About PDF scans

  • Keep in mind that the quality of your scan is impacted by the quality of the original item.

  • If you want to be able to convert scanned text into data you can edit, use the OCR (Optical Character Recognition) dialog box.

  • To scan a text document, or black and white document, set the Scan Mode to Black and White or Grayscale.
