    I want to scan pages from a book, save them to PDF, but instead of saving each page seperately can i just make a huge 20 page PDF :confused:

    Going to have to scan individually, then compile 'em together once they are on your computer.

    wait why does he have to save each individually before he can aggregate? I thought it depended on the scanner? namely, if it is a "one at a time" type scanner then I think you might be right, but if it is a scanner that is part of a fax or copier type system, then I thought it could work just fine? I hope I am right or else I feel really badly for my secretaries.

    There are definitely scanners/photocopiers/fax machines hat can create a single multi-page document. However most of us don't have them at home...

    Once you have the individual pages, you can join them with something like PDFLab http://www.iconus.ch/fabien/pdflab/
