  1. These seem like awfully large files, even for text books. Do you know how they were created? If they were scanned, they may have been scanned at overly high resolutions (300 dpi is more than enough) and may have been scanned as color even though the document is B/W. If you have access to a copy of Adobe Acrobat, you could try using it to optimize the scanned file. You could also run it through the compression utility at smallpdf.com I just ran a 1400 page engineering report that was about 70 MB in size and it compressed it (basically reducing the resolution) to about 30 MB. And still very
  2. I use the web version of Evernote in the Chrome browser - not the beta of the web version. I print by right clicking on the note snippet in the middle column and select Print... This brings up the Google Chrome Print screen, showing a preview of the printed page(s). You are correct that if you try to print from the view of the note - either the view in the right column or the view in a separate window, you get a blank page - at least in the print preview screen.
  3. I work at several different locations on employer's machines and use the web version since I can't (and don't want to) install my Evernote data on those machines. I also use a Chromebook and Chromebox and my main personal computers and use the web version through them.
  4. I'll second the choice of the Epson Workforce scanner family. I got the WF-3640 and use it to scan directly to Evernote or Google Drive. (In scan to Google Drive if I need to do some sort of manipulation or editing of the document or image). This scanner really makes it simple and easy to scan stuff - don't have to fire up the computer, don't have to load up Adobe or other software, Just drop the paper into the doc feeder, mash a couple of buttons and off it goes. Can probably pick up one of these for $120 or so.
  5. Hey Scott, I think I might know what he is talking about. I have been doing receipts in Evernote now for 3 years, and i am still not satisfied on the best way I should use it. The biggest thing Evernote does is it SAVES IT -- you can throw the paper way -- you now always have the receipt and that benifit is HUGE. But does Evernote save me any time getting my expensese together? For Receipts, Not really. Once you take the picture, you have to name it, tag it correctly (or it will just be lost in the mess) but then you have to, at some later date enter the amount in a spreadsheet
  6. I would not rely on the OCR of a PDF's contents to be able to find it in the future. Its getting better, but I personally don't think its good enough to rely on solely. I would still use notebooks, tags, note titles and keywords to effectively index and locate notes and documents. My "day job" is document imaging for a state agency. A lot of the historical documents that had been imaged were done so by outside contractors. The indexing of those documents were hit and miss in a lot of cases. (this state agency uses a in-house built image database, not Evernote, but I think my observation
  7. Looks like you can. There is an app in Google Play Store for Google Cloud Print. I just went to a page in Chrome on my Galaxy S3, tapped the Menu button and then selected Share. One of the "Share" options was Google Cloud Print. Selected that and all of my Cloud Printer options came up, including my little HP 1000 that I print to.
  8. If nothing else, try using Google Cloud Print from the Evernote Web app. This works for me all the time. I have it pointed to several different printers.
  9. Don't know what's unfriendly about it. When you sign up, you know its a recurring expense so just put it on your calendar (Google or otherwise) with a reminder of the time frame of your choice. Or how about this - put a note with a reminder in Evernote.
  10. Alan, I'm not Matt, but I have used an app called CamScanner on my Android phone (Galaxy S3). It does a pretty good job of creating PDFs from the phone's camera, including multi-page PDFs. It will share the resulting PDF with Evernote. There is a free version - give it a chance and see how you like it. Greg
  11. Re-ordering attachments is a feature I too would like to see. -- Greg
  12. I picked up the Doxie One a couple weeks ago and it is similar to the Doxie Go. Both scanners capture images without the need of a computer. Turn the scanner on, insert the document and it is pulled through the scanner and the image is captured as individucal JPEGs and stored to the scanner's local memory - either an SD card or, in the case of the Doxie Go, a USB drive or a modest amount of onboard memory. When done scanning, you can pop the SD card out of the scanner and insert it in a computer where you have installed the Doxie software. The software will import the images from SD card.
  13. Maybe I am not following you, but I just did a test and was able to do exactly what I think you are wanting to do. I have a PDF file in Evernote with fields in the document. From Evernote, I double click on the note in the view pane and the PDF opens up in my PDF editing program - PDF Nitro in this case. I make the changes I want and click on "Save" and the note is saved back into Evernote with the changes in the original note. No new note was created. Using Windows - although I don't see where that would make a difference in this case.
  14. David, when you are scanning books, are you cutting the binding off and then running them through a sheet-feed scanner or are you using a flat bed scanner and leaving the books intact? Greg Glad the scanning is working well for you. As for them not understanding how the scan can improve your college work, ask them some question that is in your text book. While they are looking up the answer, you just to a "search" and see how that "geekdom" is, or is not, working for them!! When I do my scans of books I have been keeping a log of the pages and time it takes. Will share this with the group. A
  15. BNF - keep us posted on your experience with the Fire. Using it with Evernote is one of the reasons I would get one - like you, I have the Kindle 3-3G and love it. Are you able to access your notes via the Fire's web browser and going to the Kindle mobile web site? My phone is a Blackberry Torch and the BB Evernote app just doesn't work so I access my notes on my phone via the web browser. If I need to compose a note from the phone, I do it via e-mail. If I need to edit an existing note.... well, I haven't figured that part out.
