Description ramboid 2007-07-29 00:40:23 UTC
Writer fails to import all pages of a multipage scan (Lexmark X 4270).  It 
justs imports the first page.  Microsoft Word imports all pages properly, 
pating each page into its own page.

I forgot to mention that multipage scanning failed in the latest version of 
OpenOffice (v2.2.1) for Windows XP.

Also Draw fails to correctly import or open a multipage TIF; just the first 
page is imported.

AFAIR OOo does not support multi page TIF files. This could be the root of your
problem. Please check the related issue.

Hi Kami,
Why would the mishandling of TIFF files would cause Writer to scan multipages 
improperly?  I scan right into the Writer application just as I scan into MS 
Word.  Writer imports the first page only while MS Word imports all the pages.  

With Writer, I can only scan one page at a time, insert a page break and then 
scan the next page.  I tend to conclude that Writer fails to use the TWAIN 
driver properly while MS Word uses the multipage feature of the TWAIN driver 
properly.  I have yet to find reports of users that scan with other scanner 
brands.  I am wondering if Writer fails to follow the TWAIN specification or 
the driver for Lexmark fails to implement the TWAIN standard.

I just mentioned the finding with Draw because I was trying to see if Open 
Office would handle some kind of multipage TIFF file.  I was thinking that I 
could scan into a TIFF file and later import the file into Writer but this is 
also out of the question.
