Is there a free scan to PDF program that will scan multiple pages when loaded on the automatic document feeder and that is compatible with an HP 3380 Laserjet printer?  Does anyone know?


I have tried NAPS2, Free scan to PDF, rPDFscan, A-PDF, Scan to PDF, Advanced PDF Scan HP Scan & Capture and several other programs but these only seem to work when a single page is loaded on the flatbed glass and not when multiple pages are loaded on the document feeder.  Surprisingly, even Microsoft’s Windows Scan and Fax App in Windows 10 cannot scan to PDF.

I don't find that surprising. The program is designed to let you scan docs for faxing. Remember, faxes are "image" files. It is not intended to be use to scan documents into any particular file format that could be edited. If it did, I would expect it would convert the "image" into a format MS Word supports.


That said, you can use Windows Fax and Scan. See this: https://www.wikihow....uments-Into-PDF
