  1. ... and of course I could just delete it from the folder if I was that bothered....
  2. Hmm that's an interesting idea. Thanks for that DTLow. I guess that means that I'd have the file stored in a folder and in Evernote, taking up twice the space.... but then I probably do that anyway.... I suppose I can't quite believe Evernote hasn't made this an easier workflow (like it is from the webclipper). But maybe its not so easy to implement it at the OSX level.
  3. Is there any way to upload an opened PDF from Preview into a specific notebook? I can use the uparrow share thingy but it only ever loads into the default (in my case "first notebook"). Then I have to go into Evernote and move it to the right notebook which is a right ball-ache. Am I missing something or is this just not possible? I know I can do it from the browser both on the desktop and Android but that's not what I'm asking about. Its really really annoying!!
  4. Just looked this up myself... the key thing is not to have the card view of notes as you can't do it then. Change the view and its fine. (on Mac). You'd think right clicking would give you the option in the card view - but it doesn't.
  5. I'm finding that the webclipper recognises a linkedin page but doesn't save what companies the person worked at. So you have to ignore the linkedin option and just use save full page. This is with Safari and Chrome on a Macbook pro. Anyone else have the same problem?
  6. Arrgh. Evernote business card scanner is so nearly brilliant. I've just scanned in a bunch of cards using Android Evernote Premium. I recently updated my phone so my first mistake was not setting the default business card notebook to 'business cards', which I think it was by default previously. Anyway now I've done that now so at least the cards will be saved in the right place. I'm having a weird experience - when I click on a business card note (on Mac Desktop) the image of the business card disappears. Then sometimes the contact info is shown, sometimes its not. It seems like clicking on the business card note automatically updates it and loses the image of the scanned business card. What is going on? Sadly clickly on history doesn't bring it back... Aside from that and relating the original post Evernote just need to see a typical workflow on scanning business cards. What I want to do is scan a bunch of cards from a conference/meeting, store contact info in Exchange (with note saying what meeting it was I met the person), link on linkedin to them. All this is possible but not in a nice workflow. You have to scan, add note of what the event was (to each card), save business card to Evernote, then save it to Exchange, then you're returned to the same menu for that card and have to remember whether you've done the steps above (ticks on a menu would be nice). Oh and you don't seem able to linkin now after scanning. You have to do this after you finished scanning... I'm just saying it could be a whole lot slicker... And better if it didn't lose the information after uploading (it was there in the web evernote but got then got lost after clicking on the note in the Mac Desktop...)
  7. When I just tried this I found Evernote would only export the name, email address and photo (from linkedin) but not phone number & postal address. This might be because my primary account in Mac Contacts is an exchange server. Then again it might not. On the other hand if I save it after scanning each card on my Android phone (to the same Exchange server) it works inasmuch as all the detail is captured (address, phone number, notes etc) but *not* the photo (from linkedin)!. [However the address isn't correctly parsed - ie all the address is on the first line, rather than separated into city, postcode etc. This would be a nice to have, as my old Cardscan scanner/software could do this pretty well]. Conclusion: scanning with Evernote is almost brilliant (particularly with the linkedin integration)... but not quite... Of course you could do the above methods then select both versions and then 'merge' in Mac Contacts - but its a bit of a palaver...
