Enable Compact PDF (compressed PDF for smaller file size scanning) on Sharp Copier

To enable Compact PDF (compressed PDF) on a Sharp copier for smaller file-size scanning, you will need to access the scanning settings to select the appropriate file format and compression options. Compact PDF is useful for reducing the size of scanned files, making them easier to store and share.

Here's how to enable Compact PDF on a Sharp copier:

1. Access Scan Mode:

- On the copier's control panel or touchscreen, select "Scan" or "Scan to File."

2. Choose the Scanning Settings:

- Look for the "File Format" or "PDF Settings" option.

- Tap on "File Format" to choose the output format for your scanned document.

3. Select Compact PDF:

- From the list of file formats, choose "Compact PDF" or "Compressed PDF."

- Depending on your model, you might need to select a sub-option like "High Compression" to get smaller file sizes.

4. Adjust Compression Quality:

- If there's an option to adjust compression quality, choose the desired level of compression.

- Note that higher compression can reduce file size but may affect image quality. Find a balance that suits your needs.

5. Set Other Scan Parameters:

- Set additional parameters like color mode (black and white or color), resolution (dpi), and paper size.

- Ensure you have selected the correct tray for scanning or the automatic document feeder (ADF).

6. Start Scanning:

- Once all settings are configured, place your document in the ADF or on the scanner glass.

- Tap "Start" or "Scan" to begin scanning with the Compact PDF setting.

7. Save or Send the Scanned File:

- After scanning, choose where to save or send the scanned file. This could be a network folder, email address, or USB drive.

- Confirm the output location and complete the scan.

By following these steps, you should be able to enable Compact PDF on your Sharp copier, allowing you to scan documents with a smaller file size for easier storage and sharing. If your copier doesn't have this option or if you encounter issues, consult the user manual or contact technical support for further assistance.
