ocr / scan of pdf document does not work after moving or changing creation date note

Recommended Posts



Has anyone experienced a problem with OCR information not being added to a note that is added to Evernote after which its creation date is changed and/or the note is moved to another notebook.  


this is what I experienced today:

  1. scanned 5 pages expense report using scannable on ios
  2. openend Evernote for ios to sync the note to my default notebook
  3. synced Evernote on my imac (Evernote 6.0.13)
  4. change the name of the note
  5. change the creation dat of the note (to reflect the date of the expense report)
  6. move the note into another notebook

after some time a do a search for content in de pdf and it is not found by Evernote.


Then I did the following test:

  1. I drag the pdf from the note described above out to my desktop
  2. create a new note on my imac with the pdf file
  3. sync Evernote.
  4. wait a bit
  5. sync Evernote again
  6. now i can find information in the pdf

Anybody experienced this behaviour too? 


thx advance for your effort.
