Ellsinore 7 Posted January 9, 2012 Share Posted January 9, 2012 I've been trying to set up Evernote to use as a research log for my genealogy project(s). I have JPGs and PDFs that I want to transcribe in the note, with the file attached to the note -- so that the transcription and the source file are in one place.Has anyone done anything like this and, if so, do you have any suggestions? I don't seem to be making any progress -- I have to keep starting over. My biggest glitch is when I have to edit the file (usually PDF or JPG) that's attached to the note. JPGs that are too large and need to be resized or reduced, or PDFs that have sideways pages in them. After I fix that, a new note is imported. Is there any way to just edit the one that's already there? I realize I can merge two notes, but since the "old" ones have already been renamed, and the "new" ones have the name of the file, sometimes it's hard to find the two that need to be merged -- I have thousands of documents.I can't figure out how Evernote is storing these attachments. The only files that appear in the Attachments directory are the ones I've opened from the note itself -- but editing these doesn't change what's attached to the note. Editing the file that's in the import folder just creates a new note. Is there a way to print the note and have it print all pages of a PDF as well, rather than just the first page of the PDF?It's starting to dawn on me that maybe I'm not going to be able to use Evernote as I had envisioned -- collecting the raw data, which is rarely in the form of plain text, and manipulating it from there.
