Chapter 13. Paper Capture > Scanning a Document into Acrobat

Scanning a Document into Acrobat

To turn a paper document into a PDF, you first have to create an image of it in your computer. The most direct way is to scan the document. You can have Acrobat control the scanning process by using the Import command.

In general, when you install the software that came with your scanner, the installation program will find scanner-capable programs, such as Acrobat, on your computer and install the software that operates the scanner (usually in the form of a plug-in) in each of those programs. Once you have scanned in the image or text, use Acrobat to capture it to make it editable.
