Topic: Scanning with Acrobat 7.0 Pro
Conf: (P-PDF) Mac Issues, Msg: 149643

I'm having an issue when trying to create a new PDF by scanning it in. I have a Canon LiDE 30 USB scanner, Acrobat 7.0 Professional, and Mac OS X 10.4.6. Acrobat doesn't recognize my scanner. When I try to create the new PDF by scanning, the dialog that pops up with my scanning options just says "none."

I used this scanner with Photoshop CS just ten minutes before I tried to make a PDF, and everything worked just fine, although I had to use the Canon ScanGear program (or whatever it's called; it was launched through Photoshop).

I seem to recall having to jump through a few hoops to get Acrobat to pick up the PDF, but I can't remember exactly what they were.

Can anyone give me some guidance on how to make this work? I've thought about going back to Acrobat 5.0.5 (my favorite version, which I don't recall having problems with), but I'd like to make 7.0 work if possible.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
