Using the Machine as a Scanner

You can scan original documents by using the operation panel of the machine or an application on a computer. Whichever way you use, the scanned documents are converted into electronic file formats such as PDFs. Use the scan function to convert large-volume paper documents into files so that you can organize them easily.
To use this machine as a scanner, you must complete preparations in advance, including installation of software to a computer.
If you are a Mac OS user, see Canon Scanner Driver Guide for installing the software and for using scan functions (For Mac OS Users).
Depending on the operating system and the version of the scanner driver or applications you are using, the screens in this manual may differ from your screens.
