When I scan a document using Epson Scan in Windows, it takes a long time to save it as PDF file. What should I do?
If you have ABBYY Fine Reader installed, you can turn off Create searchable PDF in Epson Scan to decrease the time it takes to save a PDF File. (“Create searchable PDF” is an option that allows you to save a PDF file with searchable text.) Follow these steps to disable this setting:
- Start Epson Scan.
- Click the file folder icon next to the Scan button. A File Save Settings window appears.
- Select PDF for the Type setting under Image Format.
- Click the Options button.
- Click the Text tab.
- Deselect Create searchable PDF.
