  1. It should clean up the old synced Notebooks, but in my experience it does not. I had to do the same thing as PaperQueen: delete and reinstall the entire app on iOS.
  2. 1) I personally recommend turning it on. That way the PDF will be searchable even if you decide to take it out of Evernote. There is no "right" answer though. 2) Scott is right. You can either have the ScanSnap set up to either scan everything in one PDF (so in that case, some people scan one document at a time), or you can have it set up to create a new PDF every x pages. What I personally do is have different ScanSnap Manager Profiles set up for the type of document I am scanning (everything in one PDF, stack of single sided documents, stack of double sided documents), but again there is no right way.
  3. That sounds suspiciously like an issue I've heard about from some ofy readers. Evernote is trying to be helpful, but sometimes it is a little too smart for its own good. Fortunately there's a setting to turn it off. I wrote about it here http://archive.aweber.com/ds-papersanity/GsxAT/h/_DocumentSnap_The_Evernote.htm but at a high level here is what to check: Log into the web interface. Click on the little triangle beside your name in the top right. Click on Account Settings. Click on Personal Settings on the left. Either check or un-check Automatically file and tag notes sent in via email. depending on which camp you are in.
  4. I haven't tried this, but what happens if you get rid of the word "activate" from the script?
  5. This is such a useful topic. It should be made a sticky/template.
  6. It would definitely be nice to have the watch folder functionality in the Mac like as it exists in Windows. You can pretty easily make your own (http://www.documentsnap.com/evernote-mac-import-folder/), but having it update/delete based on content is a different story.
  7. For me, that is the main one. If you search the forums for something like "Scansnap OCR" there has been a quite a bit of discussion on this with respect to the ScanSnap, but the same concept would apply to the Doxie. Personally if it is something I care about, I OCR first.
  8. If the PDF has already been OCR'd (in your example, by the Doxie's software), the Evernote OCR process will ignore it. Reference: http://blog.evernote.com/tech/2013/07/18/how-evernotes-image-recognition-works/. It will still use that text to search though.
  9. On the Applications tab, try "None (Scan to File)" instead of "Scan To Folder".
  10. You can definitely do it with a ScanSnap and Hazel. Use an unholy combination of these two posts: http://www.documentsnap.com/scansnap-and-hazel-is-a-match-made-in-paperless-heaven/ and http://www.documentsnap.com/behind-these-paperless-evernote-hazel-eyes/ It works well, depending on how well the ScanSnap picks up your highlighting. As BurgersNFries says, you will need to do have the ScanSnap do the OCR. Depending on how your documents are structured, you might even be able to use some of the token matching stuff introduced in Hazel 3.1 to do even more advanced things.
  11. I only have the Mac client in front of me at the moment so I am not sure if Windows supports this, but you can right-click on a PDF and choose Save Searchable PDF As. It will then save the text content of the PDF. Here's a screenshot: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s1/sh/abddbb99-b30e-4718-aca6-b38f9796dd61/1c22b8a09738809b60dfc92442ed5b59
  12. I don't personally do it, but this stamp is one of the most frequent items that people purchase through my Amazon links (and I don't even feature it). http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003ODFSWA In other words, a lot of people clearly do!
  13. "-dog" (without the quotes) will bring back notes that do not contain the word dog.
  14. I have 5.4.3, and first I went to Preferences > General. Checked "Show note counts in sidebar": http://d.pr/i/CriD. Now it's showing beside "Notes": http://d.pr/i/Okto.
  15. "Document" will attach the scans as a PDF. "Note" will embed the scans as JPGs. That's the main difference.
