folderoo 0 Posted January 30, 2015 Share Posted January 30, 2015 I'm needing to scan a bunch of individual sheets of paper to a file server as a PDF. Each PDF needs to be 1, 2 or 3 images saved to one file. JPG is also a possibility but not optimal as is a searchable PDF. It occurred to me that Evernote gives me a great way to take quick, effective images of a sheet of paper, plus I can do multiple images in one note using a tablet or cell phone. I'm Android based. I've been using a flat scanner on a workgroup color printer to do this work, which is slow and clumsy to do. Evernote is not the final repository of the file, simply a way to get it done quickly. I can create a note, give it a title based on the document I am scanning, image + image + image and done. Now I have a document on my Evernote account as a note. A complicating factor is my tablet and cell are using my personal Evernote account, and sharing the containing notebook to my work Evernote account. So far, that doesn't seem relevant or affect this process. With the note now saved in Evernote, I am opening it and wanting to save it to the file server locally. It looks to me like my only option is using a PDF print driver, which on my machine is slow to do as it crunches through converting the file to PDF. Are there any methods that might make this easier to do? I don't see a way to save the note directly as a PDF for example, at least not in Windows Evernote. I'm contemplating getting an older iPhone, hook up my work Evernote account, and use that for images, perhaps with the Scannable app for IOS. Thanks for any suggestions. Link to comment
