blackcows 9 Posted December 25, 2012 Share Posted December 25, 2012 I am now about a year into using EN and I must say I love the program. I can honestly say I am about 98% paperless. I still enjoy jotting notes on paper when I am at a meeting but as soon as I get home I scan, tag, and shred. I started out with far to many notebooks, despite many suggestion here, but I am now down to less than 10 and could probably go to 2 or 3 but 10 with tags is fine for me.Over the last few months I have started to move my program files such as Word docs, Excel docs, etc into EN as a further step in getting my digital life into as few places as possible. After reading a recent thread here I am a bit concerned that I may not be doing this correctly. If I access a Word file via MS Word on my computer, iPad, and\or phone and make changes to said file are those changes always saved to a single file?My confusion is because I was reading a thread about the EN attachments file and how somebody wanted to the EN program to point to a location of a file rather than have the file in the attachments folder? Here is what I think/hope is going on with my document\files in EN. I take file labeled "mike.doc" and save it to EN by dragging it to my EN import folder, then I delete the original file. If I want to use the file I find it through EN, I edit, I save, and I move on. My assumption is that EN has moved the file to somewhere in it's database and any changes I make are now saved to the cloud? Is all of this correct? I know I could use Dropbox and do this but my thought is why use two progams when I could just use one?Mike Link to comment
