Sometimes a software can be used to solve more than one problem. We reviewed eDoc Organizer before that allows users to organize documents. It also has a build-in scanner with a feature to append one page after another and then save them all as one XPS document.
Update: Also check out a much easier and simpler method which uses iCopy here.
This post includes two simple steps:
- Scan and merge all pages and save them as XPS document
- Convert XPS document to PDF document.
First open eDoc Organizer and hit the Scan button. This will bring up the Scanner Document Wizard. Now insert the first page in your scanner, set options that suits your need, and hit Scan button.
Once the scan is complete, insert the second page in your scanner, and hit Append button. Now insert the third page in the scanner and hit Append again, and keep going on until all pages are finished.
Finally hit Save and Finish button and it will automatically merge the pages, save them as XPS document, and add it to the program. But the problem is that eDoc Organizer does not allow users to export the documents.
Since eDoc Organizer uses MySQL to save all documents in the database, you can easily find the documents saved inside the AppData folder.
To get the XPS document file, head over to the following folder. Make sure that ‘Show Hidden Files And Folders options is enabled”.
C:\Users\[Windows Username]\AppData\Local\eDoc\Organizer\Document Store
In the screenshot below you can see the XPS document with some random name.
Copy this XPS file to some safe location. Open it with Internet Explorer and hit Print. Select Bullzip PDF Printer from the list of printers and hit the Print button.
Next, it will ask you to select the output destination and name the file, give it any name and hit Save.
You are done. Now open this newly created PDF document and you will find all scanned pages listed neatly inside. Enjoy!
