  1. Surprised nobody has mentioned the use of larger monitors. Like others, I started wearing glasses (58 now) a few years back for reading. But, the biggest improvement for me is that I bought a cheap 24" monitor a few years back on Black Friday. Since then, I have a 28" and another 24". So useful and so easy on the eyes. And when the Black Friday, or Prime days, or Boxing day sales roll thru - they are very affordable. Amazon Prime days are delayed this year but are expected in August from what I'm reading (on my big monitors!). W.
  2. Taking the plunge this year and doing a major purge of old ***** and digitizing as much as possible. Tieing it to tax time and so far its going well. I debated over getting a scanner, but in the end, decided to use the free app from Microsoft called 'Lens'. It simply takes a picture (PDF) of the page and supports adding multiple pages for those longer and double-sided docs. Just doing an INBOX method where I review later and rename as/if needed. Then a simple folder per year with subfolders when/if needed for special scans or important items. Most just goto a general folder under the year beca
  3. This is an ancient problem because there is no standard location or placement of the date on documents. Every bill/receipt/invoice, etc. all has the same info but in varying locations an formats.

There are apps that can be used to process scans or text documents and programmed to only focus on a specific area and scrape data. But, every form from every vendor would need to be individually setup.
  4. Can be challenging to get the Stack list sorted to view the same across desktop, web, and Android access. Found the Web didn't sort the same way the Windows /MAC app does. Here's what is currently showing consistent sorting across all platforms so far. Places the inbox at the top, then a numerical section, and then finally an Alpha section. *** Stack names ._0[Inbox] ._1[Numerical section 1-x] A-[Alpha section A-Z] W.
  5. Wondering if there's an option I'm missing or a term I haven't found while searching here in the forums. When I select a note in one notebook, and then jump around to other notebooks, when I return to the original notebook, the position always starts over at the top. This is frustrating for notebooks with many notes. I use Onenote more frequently, but have recently returned to Evernote for work and Onenote does this. Thjanks, W.
