Attaching documents stored in Evernote

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I'm pretty new to Evernote! So far so good. First off I'm a designer so I really maximize the space on my computer with working files and back up lots while store done projects elsewhere.

I have started putting personal and business documents on Evernote, as well as, using Evernote to store design files for reference. I had started using Bridge prior, but it's a vary complicated program for this purpose. Really better served for original work and photography.

Anyhow... My question is I have been keeping my Cv, cover letter, and several work documents on there so I can access from any where in case an email comes in requesting anything. I am on a job hunt right now.

I am having trouble though- how do I attach docs from my iPad, iPhone, or even my personal computer without having another file somewhere else?

Also I prefer to keep a back up on a separate drive and not have copies in my Evernote and on my computer. First off too confusing on which to edit and second takes up too much space.

Any ideas?

My iPad and phone are the main issue.

There is little that can be done about the iPad and iPhone because the iOS operating system doesn't make it easy to "attach" files to email from within the Mail application. The best thing you could do would be to select file in Evernote, share it via email, and compose your email in the window that comes up. You would NOT be able to do this straight from the mail application. 


Another option would be to create a note with the desired email text and add the file to that note. Then you could email the entire note from within EvernoteThe downside to this is that there will be a little evernote tagline at the bottom of the email and it will only ever be sent from the email address associated with your Evernote account. 


Altogether though, as soon as you are dealing with email, whether on a mobile device or a computer, you will end up with duplicate files. Whenever you attach a file to an email, that file gets loaded into the local mail database and also uploaded to the mail server, while still existing in the original location (your documents folder, your Evernote database, whatever). This is just the nature of the archaic email beast.
