    Anyone who has a boat can tell you, there are a *lot* of moving parts involved. Engines. GPS. Radar. Pumps. Random switches and nozzles and other various doohickeys. Keeping it all straight is a job in itself! To go with all of these doo-dads is a *massive* amount of paperwork. The engine has a manual. The steering wheel has a manual. The *teak oil* has its own manual. When you're wandering aimlessly around West Marine for the twentieth time in a weekend trying to remember exactly what type of oil your particular model of diesel engine takes, it can get frustrating. Not so with Evernote! Scan all those papers in! With a Premium account, all those previously indecipherable schematics become searchable, and instead of flipping through pages upon pages of documentation, you can simply search for "oil" and you'll find the right note. Tag it, and organize it however makes the most sense to you. And, of course don't forget to scan in that all important coast guard registration information. I can't tell you how many times the Coast Guard/Immigration has been impressed to see us pop it up from our iPad for them right away so they could start copying the relevant info as we went to retrieve the original. Once you've gotten all those in, you can surf the web and start clipping in information about marinas and the nearby towns you plan to check out, get your charts saved, put in a section for those knots you just can't get around to memorizing - whatever you want. While underway, you can keep your running log right in Evernote. Whenever you have internet, it will sync up to our servers, and you won't need to worry about your logbook getting waterlogged and having to copy it over into yet *another* notebook. Any other sailors or boaters have other ways they use Evernote to make their life on the water easier?

    I have taken a look at the status of your ticket and it has been assigned to the Level 2 Tech Team. I have asked them to take a look at the ticket.

    Just thought of another way I use EN. I frequent an Asian grocery store. If I can't find something I'm looking for, I may be asking a clerk who doesn't speak English well or it may be an item I don't know how to pronounce. So I have a photo of the item in EN & pull it up on my phone & show it to the clerk. IE, my favorite chili oil:

    Funny, I recently considered doing the same thing. As it is, I take photos of all of my kids artwork from school, knowing that at some point it will be lost or destroyed. At least I'll have a photographic record going back to the beginning for them.

    I am taking a Masters degree online and have found that it is very different from classroom learning. One of the issues is the formatting of the assignments we post to the website. It is the same for every assignment, so I keep a "Posting Template" in my notebook for class and just insert the necessary parts of each assignment into the template. Then I just copy and paste the whole thing into the class website. I also store the syllabus, class lectures (usually Word or PowerPoint) and other materials in the same notebook. I have also used Michael Hyatt's instructions How to Get your Kindle Highlights into Evernote so that my notes on what I read is searchable in Evernote. Evernote has made my productivity in the "classroom" much better and since I'm still an Evernote rookie, I'm enjoying getting to know the product as I learn in class!

    Every time I order a coffee from the many and varied cafés here in Melbourne and from my travels around Australia and the world, I take a photo, assign a star rating (1 to 5) and send the note to my EN account. I make sure the location is set correctly as well (which usually happens automatically). It seemed like a crazy idea, but I find I can browse back through them and the photos bring back memories not only of the particular café, but also the business trip, holiday or outing of which the beverage was a part! I sometimes photograph desserts, too! Incidentally, I'd love EN to be able to make more use of the ‘location’ tag. I believe the Android app has the ability to display notes on a map, but it would be fascinating to be able to browse notes (filtered by search) via a Google Maps mashup in the web version, for example.

    I also use a tag; typically "Inbox" (as in GTD) and I'll tag any notes to take action on with that tag. Then I use a Saved Search to see the list. Once I've taken action, I either delete the note, or if I need the information, remove the Inbox tag and give it some other, more appropriate tag, that way it clears out of the list.

    Is your image just a JPEG with no other text (Black background?)? If this is the case, i have found that clicking the picture option on the left hand side of the note title will give you the full resolution of the JPEG. It will also have a white background. To force the picture to come up in this mode - add some text to the note. Hope this helps. Bart

    Hi everyone! My name is Jamie Todd Rubin. By day I am a software developer and by night I am a science fiction writer and blogger. About a year ago, I decided to go paperless. I started using Evernote to manage digital versions of all of my "paper" and haven't looked back since. Whether it's bank statements, publisher contracts, or minutes from a homeowners meeting, I've got it all in Evernote, making it easy to search and access anywhere. And no more clutter in my office! I'm hoping I can share some tips and tricks about going paperless--as well as learn some new ones. I look forward to hearing your ideas.
