  1. Just FYI, I built a system in Dropbox plus Hazel running across platforms and it works Hope that helps others wrestling with similar issues.
  2. Thanks for this. I don't want to belabor this, but what isn't technically possible? All I want is for a scanned JPG to come in at actual size, not 4x the size. PDFs come in at the right size, JPGs don't. If that's technically impossible, then indeed, Evernote has failed me and my annual fee is wasted.
  3. Thanks for getting back to me. I'm actually not doing anything with Evernote that Evernote doesn't claim to do well. The reason to scan them in instead of faxing them is that once scanned, each item can be named (at the origin) and the name includes the date the item is due. Plus, preview. So, in Evernote, it's really easy to sort by name and see them accruing in date due order. And then, as each date passes, it's easy to drag to another Notebook ("Done") where it's easy to keep as a record. Plus, the Evernote UI on a tablet is superior to most other alternatives. Can I scan to Dropbox? I guess I can, with a few macros and such. But I'd be much happier if Evernote actually was consistent, if it fixed the bug about printing PDFs, etc. Do you expect that these bugs are now features and I should give up?
  4. This is a bit of a followup on: https://discussion.evernote.com/topic/71743-print-note-no-longer-prints-my-pdfs/ My goal is to use Scanscap i500 to scan in order forms (simple 8.5 x 11 sheets, filled in by hand) and send them to Evernote so they can be sorted, read and printed in the bakery's other location. Scansnap permits two kinds of scan to Evernote. The first is called a Document, and it's a PDF. The second is called a Note, and it's a jpg. I have no trouble scanning (using a PC laptop). Both sorts of images show up, both in the local Evernote reader (just to confirm) as well as the remote Evernotes (on a Mac and on a tablet as well). Here are the problems: a. when I scan a PDF, it comes in perfectly, takes one page exactly, and, as you can see from the bug outlined in the link above, CANNOT be printed! Not efficiently, anyway. When I hit print, it merely shows me the header for the PDF, and prints that out, then starts a new job in the queue to print the PDF. That's 50% waste of time and paper every time I print a document. b. when I scan a JPG, the file size is about half, the resolution is just fine. BUT, on the local machine AND every other machine, the note doesn't show up as an 8.5 x 11 sheet, it shows up blown up across FOUR sheets of paper. And choosing "Paper Handling" and "Fit to print paper size" in the print dialog on the Mac does nothing to make it not take up four sheets of paper. So, with fingers crossed, I'm wondering if the first bug (a) is fixed, but I'm not optimistic. And, more hopefully, I wonder if there's a way to have these scanned jpgs print at the size they were scanned, not at 4x. Thanks, team. I appreciate the help. Seth
