Hi @goldenm,

Welcome to the HP Forums!

I understand that you cannot scan multiple pages with your HP Photosmart 5520, on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite. I'm happy to help you!

What happens when you try to scan several pages? Do you get any error messages?

In the meantime, try the following steps:

  • Cannot scan multiple pages in the scanner using HP Photosmart 7520 glass

    I recently bought a HP Photosmart 7520.

    I'm pretty happy with it, but my wife has a problem with it that I wasn't able to solve even looking in the HP support sites.

    When scanning using the glass of the scanner in a pdf document, it has no option to add another page. According to the documentation, there should be a + button, but it is not found. There is an option somewhere that I'm missing? Here is a screenshot of preview (in french, sorry):


    In the HP Scan dialog box, reduce the scanning in 300 DPI resolution or lower, then you should see the button "+" to add additional pages.


  • Scanning multiple pages with c410a front page problem

    When I scan multiple pages with the photosmart c410a on my mac running lion, the first page is always replaced by the last page, when I save the document

    It scans all of the pages correctly, but when it was recorded then opened later the first page is no longer there and it is replaced by the last page.

    does anyone know how to fix this?

    HP strives to release updates for many printer models of Lion.  In the meantime you can try scanning with Apple Image Capture scanning application.  I hope that this solution will work for you until a HP update is available.

    I'm scanning several pages (5) in a single document.  I followed the instructions in the other answers to the questions - I chose the type of pdf file, I chose a less than 300 DPI resolution (I use the default value of 200 dpi), and I clicked on Preview (and not scan).  However, there was no option 'Add' page when you preview is posted.

    I don't know that I've scanned multiple pages in a single document, following the intructions of same, before moving on to Windows 10.  It is no longer possible with Windows 10?

    Thank you.

  • Scanning multiple Pages with 100 desire

    How to scan multiple pages into a single document using my NEW Hp Envy 100?  I have a MacBook Pro with a 10.8 OSX operating system.

    MarcusGoddard, because this printer doesn't have an ADF, I don't know if it's possible. I believe that this model asks you if you want to continue scanning, if that's the case there is an option we can try.

    Is it is it, however, you will find this option in the popup scan, under the "Advanced" link Here if you save in PDF format, then the option for it to scan in a single document.

    Let me know!

  • HP ENVY 5660: HP ENVY 5660 scan multiple Pages with Mac OSX?

    Hi-how to scan multiple pages using the HP ENVY 5660 with Mac OS x 10.8? I have updated the software of the scanner, clicked on "open scanner" in the printer, but see no way to scan multiple pages. Also, there is no way to add several pages on the touch screen of the printer.

    I really need to send you something to a potential employer ASAP so would be extremely grateful for any advice.

    Thank you.



    Don't forget to select PDF as the source file.

    Click Scan to scan the first page, once completed, click the same button to add another page and continue to use the scan button until you are finished.

    The final PDF should include any page scanned in the same session.

  • Scanning multiple pages with Windows Fax and Scan

    I can't understand how to scan multiple pages in a document on Windows 7 using the Windows Fax and Scan program. Using the same printer (Canon MX300), I can scan in several pages in a single file on my old XP using Windows Office Document Imaging. It works very well. I tried to download this program on my Windows 7 computer and I can scan, but the pages are blank! Can someone help me get this figured out?

    MODI is part of the office and requires the rest of the Office to be there. You can also use a PDF as PDF-Xchange Viewer writer to import your pages scanned in a multipage. PDF of the file and send it by fax.
