HP OfficeJet 6450 Printer sorts pages automatically when it scans large documents...?

When I scan a document with more than 10 pages, my HP OfficeJet 6450 Printer automatically sorts the paper if there is a page # listed on it. Example...Document with 15 pages, each is numbered Page 1, Page 2, Page 3, etc. at the bottom. The scanner somehow picks up on this & sorts them in it's own order. Pages will go # 1, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, then go to # 2, 3, 4...so on. This is big issue with large documents that I would like to email for a customer to read in a PDF file. They have to either skip around on the screen or print & sort by hand once they get it.

Any suggestions???

    Hi there,

    Have you checked the scanner set up option via the printer driver to see if the 'collate' check box is ticked? If it is ticked it will automatically sort documents. Also, depending on the package you are scanning into, this may also have collate options. If you are scanning into acrobat and creating docs that way, there is a text recognition system it can use to work out pages for collation so check those settings too. Remember 'sort' prints 10 copies of each page separately and collate stores or prints 10 copies of the whole 15 page document.

    Hope this helps
