Scansnap ix500 (Not evernote edition)


Recommended Posts

Hi I have a Scansnap IX500 and I am having problems getting it to work correctly with Evernote. I cannot find a way to direct scans to a particular Notebook in Evernote. How do i select which notebook a scan should go to?

I tried using the Evernote edition software but this does not seem to work with my (non Evernote edition) scanner.

Any help much appreciated.

Not sure which version of the ScanSnap Software you are using, but if you go to Scan Button Settings you should see a screen something like this.  For whatever profile you are using click on the Save tab and set up the folder you want as a destination for the scan.  In my case, My Scans is the location of my import folder for EN.

As the others mentioned, you can direct your scans to a disk folder,
then set up the folder for import to Evernote

- for Windows; This documentation might help   https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209004967-How-to-create-import-folders-in-Evernote-for-Windows

- for Mac, it's a lot more complicated, and requires Folder Actions and AppleScript (for example http://veritrope.com/evernote-desktop-folder/ )
