HP envy 7640: "properties of the pdf.

Do I need other software or drivers to be able to set properties (metadata) when I scan to PDF?  I do not use a PDF Editor in this time other than what I can do with the free version of Adobe Reader DC.  I would like to be able to add properties such as title, subject, keywords, etc. that I scan if possible.

Hi @rachel-567.

Thank you for reaching out to the forums! I understand you want to learn more about the functions of scanning. I'd love to help you.

You can use the scanning software HP for scanning to PDF. I do not believe there is no option to add titles, etc. He has the option of scanning as editable text files. There could be some third party software that offers these features.

If the problem is resolved and that you appreciate my help, please click on the button "Accept as Solution" and the "Thumbs Up". Let me know how make you out. See you soon!

  • To know more about the properties of the PDF fonts

    Hi guys,.

    I have Acrobat Professional 8. I remember with versions previous of this application, I was able to select a font in a PDF and I told me everything, it's properties. I.E.

    Adobe Garamond Pro

    12 pt

    Now I go to properties / do, and I don't see what use the fonts in the PDF file type. Where can I find more information that I used to do before?

    In the Internet, there is a jewel free students of typography of the great master Massimo Vignelli, and true that you can download to


    It is always interesting to study how a grand master to use typography size, leader and grids and with this Acrobat 8, I can't get much info on this style of fonts PDF.

    Any help or ideas?

    See you soon,.

    Something to play with.

    Select the Touchup text tool in the advanced editing toolbar.
    This tool allows to select text.
    Now, right-click to display the context menu.
    In this menu, at the bottom, select Properties.
    The Properties Editor dialog box opens.
    If this isn't already in short, click the text tab.
    This tab shows:

    If a PDF file is a PDF containing the well-trained tag you can open the Panel tags, select a PDF ('tag') element, right-click to display the context menu.
    Select properties, in the Properties Editor dialog box - click the button change the tag in the tag item dialog box - down the element tree.

    The appropriate dictionary will provide more detailed information.

    It's the tag element dialog box is not intended to be a provider of policies focused on "info". so, not 'friendly' if all you want is data of police.
    The first method, described above is almost the best you will get for the presentation of the police since Acrobat-specific information.

    Since Acrobat is not a "Publisher" (for fonts or otherwise) it is to be expected.
    Fonts/typography information is in PDF format (more if the PDF is a well formed PDF containing the tag), it may be possible for a developer to concoct a plug-in with the appropriate C programming language. Could even be something already out there.

  • HP Envy 7640: Unable to set the scanning resolution

    Have been unable to set the resolution of scan during the scanning of the glass in a computer file (pdf, jpg). Guide the user to the HP page 47 7640 said: "● If you want to adjust the size of the scan, output type, scan resolution, or file type and so on, start scan from the software of the printer."
    ● To avoid all scanned text wrong or missing, make sure that the brightness is set properly the
    ● If you want to scan a document with several pages in a single file instead of several files, run it
    Scanner with the software of the printer instead of the sweep of the screen of the printer".

    First of all, where is the "printer software" to start the scan?

    Have tried all this. When I opened the series HP Envy 7640 (network): Assistant of HP printer, I click on "Scan the Document or Photo a" place in the scanning area. No scan dialog box never opens. Actually I tried to reinstall the printer driver. No change. Always impossible to get a scan dialog box. In addition, when I go in the start menu and the title of the series 7600 HP: HP envy, I click on the HP Scan icon. After a long wait, a dialog box appears that says: "Cannot communicate with Scanner", and it offers a few options. The first is to activate the device (printer), and then on; the second, control cables (its wireless operation); the third: try the software "fix." Happy to report that after stopping then on and running assistant printer again, this time by pressing the "scan a Photo Document' results in the appearance of a dialog box to make the changes that I've been looking for.

  • HP Envy 7640: HP Envy 7640 will not print photos from the photo tray

    I bought a HP Envy 7640 today, 11/05/2016.  It will NOT print photos from the photo tray.   The printer has paper in all trays, but keep taking 8 1/2 x 11 paper rather than photo paper.  I use the default application for the display of pictures (Microsoft Office 2010) and have tried selecting both the 4x6in of the index card. and sizes of 4 x 6/10 x 15 cm.  The end result is the same, an image printed in the middle of the plain paper.  I searched the forums and found that two related threads.  Given that I just install the printer today, I figure there will be newer drivers in the last hour, so I finished downloading "printing HP and Scan doctor."  He finds a "Match of Port issue" and that fixed it, but when I printed another picture, he was still on plain paper.  If I remove the paper and leave only in photo paper, the printer throws a fit and said that it is out of paper.  Any ideas?  I'm not a newbie, but in more than 20 years of use of HP products, this is the first time that I had to fill out a problem for a Board of Directors.  (And with the instant the ink program, it starts to accumulate the number of my printing without a single success.)

    RESOLVED - photo, once you select the printer & paper, you must go into OPTIONS, then the properties of the printer, then go to the paper/quality tab, then the paper Source and select manually the specific bac (bac/Photo main tray).  Sheesh, should we not automatic as soon as you select the paper size?

  • E HP Envy 7640 All-in-One-Sanchez: now, I have my documents stuck in the queue and I can get out. Help! I hate this printer...

  • HP Envy 7640: How can I remove a computer from the list "Scan to" on HP Envy 7640?

    I have a computer on my list of "scan to" on my HP Envy 7640, which is no longer in use.  How can I remove the computer name in the list?

    With the help of Apple / Mac OS X Yosemite

    Thank you!

    I can't help but wonder if the computer is still on the same network as the printer. Even if you have no more than the computer, you may give it to someone else who uses the same network as you? I think it's weird that the printer is always to see the computer. If this computer and the printer are not on the same network, perhaps to restore the printer to the factory settings would help. To do this test, please complete the following steps;

    1. On the front panel of the printer, scroll down to the second main menu screen by sliding your finger to the right of the screen to the left
    2. Choose settings, or Setup
    3. Select printer maintenance
    4. Go to restoration
    5. Choose both restore factory default settings

    Once this operation is completed, you will need to reconfigure the printer to your wireless network. Please let me know if this is the case. Thank you.

  • HP envy 7640: auto answer or the number of rings (what's the difference) and other parameters

    I have a distinctive ring on my line. I trained the fax to recognize the correct fax ring. The problem is that when a fax arrives, it is not meet and receive but (on screen) asks me to accept the fax? What happens if a fax comes in the middle of the night. I won't be there to accept it.

    I don't know if I should choose or auto answer (in the Fax preferences) off the coast .

    I would logically assume that if I set the automatic answer on IT, if distinctive ring is detected, he would answer the fax.

    I don't know why it would make a difference rings how I choose, if it detects the distinctive ring, because he must accept the fax when it 'hears' distinctive ring, no matter how many rings is selected. I would hear not rather the fax ringer and ringing if he can respond quickly. But of course, I want to keep it ringing until I answer if it is a phone call.

    The fax should not reply if it does not detect the distinctive ring, regardless of how many rings is selected.

    I want to understand how these two settings relate to each other when the fax is on the same line as the phone with a distinctive ring.

    Is there documentation that explains the fax Preferences settings and the choices that you can refer me to? Otherwise, we're all just guessing on these parameters! Some are ovbious or explicit. Others?

    for example, what is scan and fax method (On or Off)

    What is stamps?

    What is the error correction mode?

    What is backup fax reception?

    What is HP digital fax? (he says to refer to the operating instructions... There is no info in the manual of tiny)
