Is there enough people who own a manual that could scan a section of it? Perhaps someone with an A3 or 
  larger scanner doing any pullout pages?

Having scanned the HP 5370B manual


I know its a lot of work to do a complete manual with a small scanner, but if several could be 
persuaded to do a bit, a electronic manual could be produced.

If the scanning was restricted to user sections, and not service sections, the page count should be a 
lot smaller and so the work a lot less.

This seems a logical way of producing electronic copies of manuals.

I know Agilent intend doing this, but you could wait a long time. I get the feeling this is not going 
to happen very soon.

There is HP-Vee driver that does a screen dump.


Not sure how useful that would be.
