Microsoft Office Document Imaging is a preinstalled Windows program that can create and view documents in Microsoft proprietary MODI or TIFF format, similar to PDF standard. You can also view scanned documents with this program. Automatically print to the imaging standard in Office 2003 if you do not have a printer readily available. However, Office 2007 does not include this virtual printer in the list of available options. Manually turn on the Microsoft Office Document Imaging capability if you want to be able to print to file in Office 2007.
