I first became aware of these settings when I was unable to resolve a scanning failure with my Hewlett-Packard OfficeJet Pro. I had no trouble initiating a scan from software on my Mac. In fact, there are multiple ways to do this. These all get the job done. However, I was more interested in initiating scans from the printer itself. Doing this comes in handy when scanning material, such as pages from a magazine, where it is more convenient to stand by the scanner to turn pages and hold down the material rather than sit by the Mac.

I would navigate through a series of screens until a Start Scan button appeared. I pressed the button and… nothing. No scan, no error message, no anything. Yes, I had. While these steps are necessary, they were not sufficient to be the solution. No further suggestions were offered. As a last resort, I telephoned HP tech support.

After rehashing much of the same fruitless territory as covered in the Forums, the support person put me on hold. When he returned, he had a new tactic for me to try:.

Select the Scan Tasks tab. Fixing the problem with these choices required that I edit each of the tasks. After doing this, Scan to Computer worked! Why was this change necessary? One more glitch remained. PDF scans were in grayscale, not in color. I wanted color. This brought up a set of options that included a Mode menu. I changed the Mode from Grayscale to Color and all was well. I later discovered that this item works out of the gate—presumably because its default is to open scans in an application rather than saving them to the problematic Documents folder.

By the way, the editable Scan Tasks are Automator workflows. In fact, HP Utility includes a button to open these workflows in Automator. To be fair, HP is far from alone in this regard.
