  1. In my opinion evernote and devonthink are not really meant to do the same thing although devonthink employees stated in a mail that evernote is their competitor. In my experience Evernote is better in terms of clipping thing from the web and ocr on images (handwritten ones) Devonthink is better because you can index things and also it is possible to open them in any application you want (no property format and no export needed). Let's say that you have a big pdf library on an external hard drive, in evernote you would be forced to import everything and take your hd space away; in dev
  2. I'm trying to set up a similar workflow too, I like how evernote quickly capture things from webpages and I love the way it turns handwritten scans to searchable text; I strongly prefer devonthink for organizing things, searching and creating contents. The main problems about their interaction in my opinion are: indexing evernote notes doesn't work well, you can index the evernote folder in your library but you will loose all notes name (replaced with some AE2234JBDJKFL kind of name) and loose tags and organization you may already have in your evernote notes. You can import them in devo
  3. Yes I think that evernote does a good job, i'm not even sure that a software which allows accurate cursive handwriting OCR, actually exists.. maybe it will come. By the way evernote really does the the job in a good way if the handwriting is done accurately. I tried importing evernote notes in devonthink through "<Import<evernote notes" and in this way the images aren't searchable anymore (it seems that data are lost in the importing process or that devonthink isn't capable of read them). I'll try with html export as you were suggesting. I wrote to devonthink support to ask if the
  4. Hi Zxaos, I did try to use devonthink OCR (Abbyy) for handwritten images, but it's not only cursive (In my experience evernote can't recognize cursive either) but I saw that it is not working with capital letters neither. It's working great with typewritten text but I think it's not really supposed to catch handwriting. Evernote does a fine job with capital handritten words and that can be useful because in documents written in cursive I can write some words (in capital letters) that work like a tagging system. If only there was a way to transfer this infos to devonthink it would be awesome.
  5. Hi Zxaos, I own the pro office version, but it allows to OCR only "typewrite" texts, not handwritten ones.
  6. Hi, I just wanted to ask a question about the integration of devonthink and evernote. I use both of them, devonthink is a way to organize and search across different sources (imported items, indexed folders and even evernote notes). I use evernote for clipping thins from the browser and for scanning things. This is really the key feature for me because evernote allows to search through handwritten documents and make them searchable (even if it is not completely accurate, it allows to find some key words). This is a feature that devonthink doesn't have, I would like to know if you can suggest
