Ok if i scan a document like a job appication to my desk top isn't their
a program or software or something i can use to then open it and
type the answers in the blanks and have it look neater then handwriting and
then print it out and it looks great ? Is it possible also to cut/paste move
things about on a scanned document ?

Nothing i try works pdf or rtf or tif etc using a kodak ESO 3250
printercan; have i missed something or is it a no go because of
restrictions embedded by the owner or something like that ?

thanks . .

If you scan as a pdf, then you need the full version of acrobat (not just reader) to be able to edit the document. You can scan as a text file, but you will need something like IRIS OCR software to recognize this as editable text. My hp all in one came with all the software I needed to do this.

What are you using to scan with (hp, cannon for example)?

Ok using a kodak ESO 3250 printer 3 in 1 print / copy and scan . . . hum how does a document look after using a pdf edit and can i get that for free and what about OCR is that free and hows the look; hope very very close to the orignal.

interesting. Looks like I'll install pdf edit and give it a try. Not familiar with it... yet :). Unfortunately, unless it comes bundled with your printer software, it is not free.
