dmorgen2 0 Posted September 2, 2009 Share Posted September 2, 2009 I just started trying a Fujitsu ScanSnap S300M scanner with Evernotes searchable PDF creation feature. I'm finding that in some cases, while it creates the searchable PDF (at least the context menu has an item to save as), Evernote (Mac, PC, Web) cannot find any of the words I search for. What might be unusual is these test cases use 4Print on XP to print 2 pages on 1 side of 1 sheet of paper, i.e. the paper is printed in landscape mode, with 2 portrait pages printed on it; the other side has handwriting on it. When I first tried it with handwriting on the back written across the top in portrait mode (i.e. different orientation than the other side), I get the problem. However, I have the same problem if I have handwriting in the same orientation as the printed side (which is the same direction of text on both sides); in this case the note has the handwritten page 180 degrees turned from the orientation of the printed side.BTW, words on neither the printed nor the handwritten sides can be found.Almost 2 hours ago I scanned a different test ... I cut one of the printed pages in 1/2 & removed any text not in the same orientation as the main text, so all text goes across as a single page in portrait mode. There's handwriting on the back. The scanned image shows 2 pages both with the same orientation, i.e. what I'd call correct. Now, just minutes short of 2 hours since this was scanned & synced, the context menu shows NO searchable PDF save as, & nothing I've tried to search for is found on this note.BTW, if I have the same printed side (2 pages on 1 sheet) & nothing on the other side, it works correctly. I haven't tried 1 side with handwriting only.Is this a known problem?Dave Link to comment
