Set this page as Default and Hide the window in the future If  Set, a new blank PDF page will use this saved page size. This property dialog will not show up.
Always Scan into a new Blank Page If set, the scanned image will appear into a new blank page. If not set, the scanned image will appear into the current PDF in an open PDF document.

For the Auto Feed Scanner to scan multiple pages into PDFill, it will be convenient if you set these two options.

Note: The inserted page is just an image. You can highlight, resize, edit or delete like PDFill PDF Filler's Image Tool object. If you delete this image after filling, only the filling data is left onto the PDF document, then you can print the filling data back to the original scanned document. You may need to adjust the scanned image' size so that it is the same size as the original document. It is best to save a copy of project file (PFL) before you delete this image.

If you have scanner "Server Busy" or other problem,   Please use the following options:

  • Update your scanner's driver from its manufacturer website, especially for the 64 bit.
  • Make sure that the Windows Scanner (Microsoft Paint) and your scanner's software can work.
  • Then, you can update PDFill and use WIA Method: PDFill PDF Editor: File Menu =>Import Image from Scanner => Scan using WIA; PDFill PDF Tools: Scan into Image or PDF => Scanning Method => WIA
  • You can also use the Windows Scanner to scan your paper into images, then, insert them into PDFill PDF Editor.

Since PDFill doesn't have OCR function, if you want to reduce the PDF file size,  try scanning at a lower resolution, and in black-and-white instead of color. That will shrink the file size considerably.
