Use a scan inbox

Scan Inbox icon A Scan Inbox icon appears in the notification area of the taskbar. It advises you whenever a new TIFF or PDF file enters the Scan Inbox. Click the notification bubble to open the Scan Inbox dialog box. You can also open the dialog box at any time, as described below.

  1. Select Advanced Processing > File > Scan Inbox.

    The dialog box lists either all non-deleted files in the Inbox, or only the latest, depending on your preference set in File > Options > Automation Server Connections > Scan Inbox > Quick Connect.

    The dialog box displays a thumbnail of the first page of the selected document.
  2. Use the controls under the Preview window to move to other pages.
  3. Click Open to open the document in Power PDF or Cancel to exit.
Note When Open is selected, PDF files open directly and TIFF files are converted to PDF, which may take some time. Once a file is opened, it is deleted from the Scan Inbox if you requested this preference. If so, you should be sure to save the PDF to its desired location. If you try to close it without saving, you will receive a warning.
