The easiest way to scan multiple document pages to a PDF file is to select the B&W PDF-Simplex, Color PDF-Simplex, or B&W PDF-Duplex function on the LCD screen, then press the Start button on the scanner.
Using Epson Scan, you can create a PDF file with the following features.
Scanning multiple document pages into a single PDF file: You can scan multiple document pages and save them in a single PDF file.
Assigning document security settings: You can assign password settings to the PDF file.
Creating a searchable PDF file (Windows only): You can create a PDF file with search functionality, so that you can look for words in the file. (This feature may not be available in some countries.)
Specifying the number of pages in a single PDF file: You can specify the maximum number of pages that can be included in one PDF file. For example, if you are scanning a 20-page document, and specify the page number to be included in one PDF as 4, 5 PDF files are automatically created.
