Inactive 9 months now scansnap and drag drop not working

Recommended Posts

Hello... Been an on and off user of Evernote for years. Recently attempted to begin using again for personal use after retiring about 9 months ago. I have a Scansnap that has worked flawlessly for many years scanning pages into notes. II updated to latest desktop version. However, now, no matter what profile i set to, scansnap always scans to my pictures folder in documents rather than directly into Evernote new note. Also. I cannot drag and drop pdf files onto the top of a new note. I get a circle with a line when I attempt to drop any file type onto a new note. 

Never mind!!!! Updated Scansnap software and all good. Cheers!

Good you could solve it yourself.

Hint: Try the import folder function to move scanned content into EN. You can give the scanned file a sound file name. It will become the notes title in EN after import. This saves me rework in the app. Furthermore I get my OCR done before importing into EN. This means the file will have its text layer everywhere - OCR made by EN only works inside of EN, and doesn't add a text layer. 

Set up an import folder in EN settings, and use the "Scan to folder" option.
