Re: Setting up a Brother ADS-1250W scanner to scan directly into Quickbooks attachments. How do you get it to work?
QuickBooks Mac relies on the macOS to provide the interface to connect to scanners. The macOS in turn requires that printer drivers implement TWAIN - an interface that allows the OS to control the scanner. Some scanners don't provide a TWAIN interface and aren't visible when you attempt to connect them to QuickBooks. I don't think these will be visible in the Apple System Preferences under Printers & Scanners, either, but I could be wrong about that. In any case, if there's no TWAIN support, you can still use the scanner with QuickBooks. You just have to rely on the scanner software to scan the paper and save it as PDF, PNG, or other supported format. Store the results in a convenient location (like the desktop) and then drag the resulting file into the QuickBooks Mac attachments window.
