A printer is a peripheral which makes a persistent human readable representation of graphics or text on paper or similar physical media. Traditional printers are being used more for special purposes, like printing photographs or artwork, and are no longer a must-have peripheral; 3D printing has become an area of intense interest, allowing the creation of physical objects. An image scanner is a device that optically scans images, printed text, handwriting, or an object, and converts it to a digital image. Hand-held scanners, where the device is moved by hand, have evolved from text scanning "wands" to 3D scanners used for industrial design, reverse engineering, test and measurement, orthotics, gaming and other applications.

How to put a date-time stamp on a PDF file with free software - Foxit Reader
I previously published an Experts Exchange video Micro Tutorial that describes how to scan documents to a PDF file using an excellent, free product called Foxit Reader:

How to scan to a PDF file with free software

N.B.: As with any "free" software, there may be restrictions, which are always specified in the software's licensing agreement, typically known as the End-User License Agreement (EULA). I encourage you to read the entire EULA of this product to be certain that you are in license compliance.

This new video Micro Tutorial shows where to download the free Foxit Reader and explains how to use it to place a date-time stamp on a PDF file.

1. Download and Install the Free Version of Foxit Reader


Visit the website for Foxit Reader at Foxit Software:

https://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf-reader/

Select the language and O.S. from the drop-downs, then click the big, red Download button:

After downloading, run the installer.

step1

2. Run Foxit Reader


The installer creates a Foxit Reader program group with a shortcut to the Foxit Reader program.

Click the shortcut to run Foxit Reader.

step2

3. Put a pre-defined date-time stamp on the PDF


After opening a PDF file, click the Comment menu.

Click the drop-down on the Stamp button.

Click one of the five pre-defined Dynamic Stamps, all of which have a date-time stamp.

Position the mouse wherever you want the stamp and click to place it.

step3

4. Create a custom date-time stamp


Click the drop-down on the Create button.

Click Create Custom Dynamic Stamp.

Select a Stamp Template and fill in the options in the dialog box.

Click Add.

Click OK.

A client has a Ricoh MP3003 printer that they can't print PNGs\Jpegs from Outlook using quick print but can print PDFs and Word docs.

One user is on Windows 7 and can print if the file is saved to the desktop before printing.

The other user on Windows 10 can't print images either way.

The screen hangs on scanning for the printer (see attached)
The Windows 10 user also getsErrorMsg an error: Your pictures can't be printed because this error occurred: An internal error occurred.'

Connecting my WiFi Xerox 6022 Laser Jet (Macbook)

My printer stopped working, and before I realized the router was blinking, I deleted the Printer.

Now I have reconnected it with the WPS button, but I can not find how to add the printer to my MacBook, so I can use it.

What am I missing?

Thanks.

Security Badge (HID) Card won't work. We are having an unusual issue with HID enable security card. We have been using a fob (dongle) for many years and we are now changing it to the card that we print pictures on it.  With the new card, it works after activated but it won't respond after two or times of time! It acted as the card is not there. it is not like the card has wrong permission. The card simply won't do anything. no beep no led indicate. We thought the printer that prints the pictures on the card, but it wasn't. it worked before print it and after print it.  What could that be?

HP Printer LaserJet Pro M203dn, networked printer, having issues.
When out of paper, and paper is replaced, the printer shows as if it's still out of paper
When the printer comes out of sleep mode, you still cannot print to it.
When an attachment is being printed, over the network, it takes a long time before it starts printing.

Hello and Good Afternoon Everyone,

        After completing an online test at https://www.mtsu.edu/online-training/ethics/ which only takes about 6 minutes to complete, I found myself unable to print my complete certificate.  While the certificate briefly appears in complete format on the screen, when I go to Print within my tools of Google Chrome or press Control and P, I am only able to see a fraction of it within the print preview screen despite of whether landscape or portrait is used.  That said, could someone provide some guidance which will allow me to print my entire certificate without it being cut off?

         Thank you

         George

One of our users is plagued with Excel crashes.

Excel will crash randomly while in the middle of various random unrelated actions, anything from clicking on a cell, printing, clicking open, save - no consistency whatsoever that we can find.

The only Excel files this user uses are exactly the same files as others in the same team. No other users are having issue with those files.

The issues started when the user was on Office 2016.

We have tried:

repairing the install

removing via removal tool, then full re-install

upgrading to 2017

changing the user's PC, setting up from scratch, new install !

And still the issues persist.

Just wondering what route we should go down next?

One file he uses does contain macros, but as I say others use the same file without problems.

Could it be a setting within Excel that we are overlooking? something that follows the user around.

I have a Mac running Yosemite and all of a sudden I cannot print to my USB printer that has been working.  When I send the print job to the printer it gives an error "cannot read the print job".
I have Parallels running on the system and can print to the same printer through Windows.  
I can also print to a label printer through the Mac connected via USB.  
I have deleted all the printers using reset and setup the printer again.  
Not all that familiar with Mac so finding it hard to troubleshoot.

Bad print job
Would someone please advise if they know how to remove the pink streaks from print jobs? Or is this something a Konica service tech would need to fix?

We are setting up our new fortigate 60e and ran into a problem accessing our local printers while in Remote Desktop via the vpn. The Interfaces are setup us as split tunneling. Could we of setup the DHCP server (Fortigate 60e) incorrectly?

Our printer's IP is 192.168.1.144. The 60E is set with the inside gateway 192.168.1.99 netmask 255.255.255.0 with a ip range 192.168.1.110 to 192.168.1.210

Thank you

I am installing a new network printer which is a Lexmark C4150.  My problem is that I do not seem to be able to setup a password on the machine console to prevent users adjusting the settings.  I have looked in all the usual configuration places but have drawn a blank.  Any help would be greatly appreciated

Document Management organization.  Anyone familiar with the Dewey Decimal Classification for organizing items?   My client is thinking about scanning and managing document according to the Dewey Decimal system.  Are you supportive of this plan of action or do you have some management system that is better?  Here's a brief snippit of what we may roll out for a wealth management advisor.  These are the first two folders but you get the idea...

2 Xerox 7830 printers keep re-appearing when removed from a 2012 server.

they have been removed from the print server and there is NO GPO that is re-deploying them

does anyone have any other ideas why they would keep being re-installed

setup is as follows

1 DC
1 file server ( with print server installed)
1 RDS
multiple workstations

whenever the 7830 is removed from any device within maybe 2 minutes it will automatically be reinstalled even though it does not actual exist anymore.

Canon MF236n fails to work reliably from iPad Mini using Apple Airprint.  Canon suggested removing Canon Biz printing app and using only AirPrint.  This didn't work at all.  If you go into the Canon app, eventually it will find the printer online and AirPrint would work.  now that has stopped working.  The printer is only 2 months old.  it replaced an identical printer that failed.  That printer never had an issue with this iPad Mini.  The computers do not have any issue printing over the network to this printer.  AirPrint is enabled by default and verified on current printer settings.

In Outlook 2016 (ProPlus) I have some e-mails sent to me from people where the images are very large (like 20 x 15 inches).
So when I go to Print those e-mails, the message body text is fine, but image is half way on the paper and missing.
Is there a way to keep incoming e-mail embedded images scaled down small enough so I can print?
Or is the only way to print them properly to edit the e-mail and resize the images manually? I'd rather a simpler way than resize a dozen photos, nor have to save/print them separately.

I've tried "View in browser" from Action menu and printing but it still doesn't scale down with scale to page.
