Adobe Scan work in tandem with your device settings to help you pre-configure scan workflows so that your experience is better and your scans more efficient.
Adobe Scan settings allow you to control features such as cellular data usage, text recognition, and so on. To change your settings:
By default, cellular data usage is enabled on devices with cellular access. To disable cellular data, tap > Preferences > Allow Cellular Data Usage.
When the device’s settings screen opens, disable/enable Scan’s ability to use cell data.
By default, the app automatically converts image text in scans to actual text (optical character recognition or OCR). All scans start out as an image, and conversion to text allows you to edit, markup, and work with text. You can disable this feature.
By default, the text recognition language is set to the language of your device. Change the default as follows:
Supported languages include: English, Dutch, Japanese, Finnish, Norwegian, Swedish, French, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, Italian, German, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Korean, Turkish, Russian, Czech, and Polish.
You can automatically save scans (images) on your device:
You can configure the capture workflow business cards so that the border adjustment handles appear after each capture. When enabled, the crop handles appear, and you can crop the image on-the-fly prior to another scan or reviewing the entire scan.
The scan app names all files “Adobe Scan (current date)” by default. However, you can change the title, date format, and add any string as needed. Custom names can help you organize and find files.
By default, the app sends usage data to Adobe so that the engineering team can improve the product and provide you with a more personalized experience. To unenroll:

For users of iOS 13+, the October, 2019 release supports dark mode. Dark mode’s high contrast display may improve readability in low light environments as well as extend battery life. For some users, dark mode is an important accessibility feature that maintains color meaning and preserves image representation better than the night mode feature.
