(Archived) How do I scan documents in to EN so they are searchable...

Recommended Posts

...on the Mac client?

There doesn't appear to be a way to scan directly in to EN. So I scan a document using "Image Capture" and save the document as a PDF. I then drag that PDF in to a new note, but it is not searchable. In a related post Dave mentioned that EN will not index an image in a PDF. Is that what is happening in this case as well?

What am I missing here? How can I scan a document such that it is able to be indexed by EN?

If you add an image to a note (JPEG, GIF, or PNG), then we will run image recognition on that. If your scanner supports PNG, you could scan into a folder and then drag the PNG files onto Evernote.
