I am running Mac OS X 10.7.4 and evernote 3.0.6. I had been using Image Capture to scan docs directly to Evernote when suddenly a week ago the "scan to" evernote preference disappeared from the Image Capture screen. I tried to "scan to " other and choose Evernote but Evernote is grayed out in the applications folder. Can someone help me resolve this issue.

Try creating an evernote watch folder and putting it in your user folder. (or anywhere you want). The folder saves all files put into it to evernote, then deletes the file from the folder.

1) Create an applescript with the script below "scan2evernote"
1*) change the set myTags to "" to the tag you want, preferable a Now tag or ASAP tag, so you remember to organize it later.
2) save the script to ~/Library/Scripts/folder action scripts
2*) search the internet to find how to unhide your Library folder. It is the one on the main HD, not the Library folder in your username folder. You will know you are in the wrong Library if you can't find the Scripts/folder action scripts
3) Create a new folder somewhere…preferably somewhere you will remember, but don't want to see. I named it "evernote watch folder" and put it in my personal folder
4) Right click that folder and select "folder action setup"
5) choose the scan2evernote script
6) Now when you scan (i just use "image capture") make sure the folder is set to "evernote watch folder" remember the files
are

Copy and paste everything below this line into applescript and compile it and save it as described above.

Wow! Mdar.....that's a helluva work around! How about just "scan to" preview then drag the docs into evernote! But, I still want to know what happened to the "scan to" Evernote option....it was so efficient and yet it just disappeared!

It's not as complicated as it seems once it's all set up. I usually get a few documents a day from school and it's nice to come home, place them in my feed scanner and press a button on my computer. They are scanned, imported into my evernote inbox, and ready to be tagged and filed in evernote. Then the scanned copy is deleted from my HD so that all there is is the evernote version. Also, the nice thing is that my inbox is synced, so as soon as I scan, the file is accessable from my phone or on any computer with internet.

Same problem with me too. It was working fine previously, must have been the recent upgrade to Evernote which precludes it from the Finder window.
Running Evernote 3.1.2 on OS X 10.7.4

Hope someone can assist, for now scan to Folder and manually drag.. what a drag!

I've got the same problem. I am also running Evernote from the App Store. It seems that the problem might be on Image Capture, because now I don't see any executable program available to be chosen through the "scan to" option. I remember that I used to see other programs available before, not only Evernote.
Any ideas?

Just wanted to add my voice here as well. Same versions, same problem. Image Capture just suddenly stopped allowing the ability to select ANY app in the Scan To/ Other pull down box.

Same problem, just to add up. But as mentioned on this thread, not able to "Scan to" any other application. Shame on OS X. I don't think it is Evernote related.

Did anyone get this issue resolved? I was hoping that an update to Mountain Lion would somehow fix the issue, however it is still not functioning for me.

I am seeing this same issue. Fully up to date Max OS X 10.7.4 and Evernote 3.1.2 from the Mac App Store.
Not sure what changed, hadn't used the scanner in about a month. Image Capture does not allow me to choose any other Applications, Evernote included.

pulled the Image Capture plist files from the ~/Library/Preferences to no avail.

Any thoughts or updates on this?

Well, never figured this one, but I was able to get around it by renaming Evernote.app to iPhoto.app
Never use iPhoto, so I just removed it. It's a workaround for me until this gets resolved at least.

Just told Image Capture to use iPhoto from the scan to drop down.

Alrighty! Not to be sidelined by my temporary 'workaround', I figured I would take another look at this issue today.
I updated to Mountain Lion, and as someone else noted, it had no effect. All Applications are still greyed out.
Test New User account (admin) same results

So being how the OS X is supposed to intuitive, I tried a simple method. I opened a Finder window to the Applications folder, and with Image Capture and Scanner load up. I simply just dragged the Evernote Application from the Finder window to the 'Scan To' drop down. Low and behold, it gave me a green plus!
I dropped it there, and now it works like it used to!

So moral of the story, just drag and drop the application! Duh ;)

Hope this helps others out!

Just tried this but it did not give me the green plus! I do not have mountain lion as I can't seem to get it to download....but that's another separate issue....I'll try it again if I can ever get mountain lion installed!

This worked beautifully! WOW WOW WOW!!! I've been trying to figure this out for a while, and this solution is the 1st time someone's tried it!

Thanks TechMarcus!!!

This workaround seemed to work for me. However, after ImageCapture did the scan, Evernote blinked once but nothing got uploaded to Evernote. There was no increment in the total number of notes in EN.

I had issues when I tried to drop the dock icon onto image capture, but dragging the app from the Applications folder worked great, and I'm once again scanning to evernote. Thanks for the tips.
