Windows 10: Scanning to a Searchable PDF file Solved

    Scanning to a Searchable PDF file

    For years I have used my HP Photosmart 2570 All in One Printer to scan printed documents to a searchable PDF file often--at least once a week. That device is now showing signs of its age and begs to be replaced.

    I have been looking at all sorts of printers/scanners and have found none the salesmen know if they will do what I want. Does anyone here know of such a printer that is on the market? I know the HP 4520 will not do it.

    Thank you very much.

    I use the HP Officejet 8600, HP LaserJet Pro MFP M26nw [both Networked via Ethernet cable to my Router] with Adobe Acrobat 8 and Adobe Reader DC. Adobe Reader DC can do a Search on files created by Adobe Acrobat.

    Whoops! My bad. I looked in the HP Solution Center and found an entry to scan to a searchable PDF file. Am a happy camper now.
