g33kboy 0 Posted September 24, 2008 Share Posted September 24, 2008 I have a lot of handwritten notes. I was hoping to use Evernote to store all of these notes. I have a scanner at the office that can scan TIF's and PDF's. I have tried both, and they have their plus's and minus's. But neither seem to do the job well enough to warrant the use of Evernote to store them....yet:TIF's:Pros: Fully Searchable, and EN does a great job at it. Con: No multipage support! I have to scan the pages in with the page separator option, and then add the pages manually together into a single note, WAY time consuming. They do render ok via windows but are fuzzy, especially if I email them, somewhat ok via the web, but horribly via the mac. The mac does not scale them to fit the page (and that's at 1920 resolution!), but they are clear. If you could get multipage support and better rendering than TIF's are the way to go.PDF's:Pros: Renders perfectly on the MAC, looks great, scales great. Looks great in windows and the Web, but you have to use Acrobat Reader to view them. I know the Windows rederer is coming, but will be limited to the first page. Multipage support built right in. Con: Handwritten PDF's are not searchable! How is this possible. Is this going to change? Also, having to use Acrobat Reader via the web and windows blows.So am I missing anything? What are other people doing? I really want EN to work for me, but I end up feeling like I am working for it most of the time. Please Help! Link to comment
