    App to scan and save into pdf format.

    I need an application that will allow me to scan multiple pages into pdf format. Could you suggest, please.

    Thank you!

    You could try x-sane. It lets you convert the scan to pdf automatically. Here's a link for more information:

    xsane works great actually. It even predicts the size of the file. Overall much better than the soft that came with my Canon.

    Thanks a lot

    Hi

    Try installing gscan2pdf from synaptic - I find it ideal.

    I usually just open the file, whatever it is, with Open Office Writer, edit it to my liking and then Export as PDF from the OO file menu.

    I need to scan multiple pages from the automatic document feeder and save them into pdf document. Default Simple Scan does not do that. Open office does not do that either.

    If you create a multi-page document in Open Office, it will export as a multi-page pdf. I do it all the time. I drag image files created by the scanner (jpg) into an office document, one file per page, and then export the whole document as pdf.
