Hi, I have a Canon wi-fi printer/scanner (scans to phone/iPad but won't the convert pdf to OCR) but I want to use it in conjunction with Adobe Scan.  Is there anyway of doing that?

 

if that is not possible, can it be put on the wish list, please.

Hi Ianhgsy,

 

Sorry for the delay in response.

 

Currently, that option is not available. 

However, you can fill the feature request form for that over here https://adobe.allegiancetech.com/cgi-bin/qwebcorporate.dll?XTGK8H

 

Hope that helps.

 

Regards,

Meenakshi

I'd really like this feature too, on Android with my Epson AIO wireless multifunction printer. I submitted this request to the same link as in the other answer https://adobe.allegiancetech.com/cgi-bin/qwebcorporate.dll?XTGK8H

 

Brief title for your desired feature: Support External Flatbed Scanner

 

How would you like the feature to work? 

Just as Adobe Acrobat on desktop supports creating PDFs from a dedicated flatbed scanner or multifunction printer scanner connected via Wi-Fi, allow the Android apps to use the same.

 

Why is this feature important to you?

A computer is often inconvenient or inaccessible making the desktop app infeasible. The Adobe Scan app supports the critical features OCR and skew/crop correction, but is forced to use the phone camera. A camera is convenient in a pinch, but reduces quality of scan appearance and increases filesize due to uncontrolled lighting and backgrounds (floor, table, bed, etc.).

Hi RAPHAEL3686785001s6,

 

Hope you are doing well. Thanks for writing in!

 

The feature is available on the desktop version of the application.

As a workaround on mobile, you can save the images to your photos app, then open Adobe Scan and click the image icon on the capture screen to see the images you saved on your device to import and create a PDF out of it.

More info here: Take scans — Adobe Scan for iOS

 

Hope this helps.
