  1. I was about to reply and say that the file creation must have completed, since I didn't move the file into the importing folder until the file already existed. But then I thought of something related that might be happening . . . the file has been created, but maybe the OCR process is still working and making changes to the file. I'm going to check those options in the manager, I seem to remember something about an option for running during import or later. I did install an update to the scanner software so maybe something changed then. Thanks! Where do you add a time delay? I don't see that as an option when configuring the import folders.
  2. Here's a puzzle. I've been using a Scansnap scanner for a few years now in my paperless workflow. I use the scansnap software to create a searchable PDF, and then using ScanSnap Manager I move these files into folders by topic. Then I have Evernote configured with Import Folders watching those topic folders, so these pdfs now end up in different Evernote notebooks, right where I want them. The Import Folders feature is configured to leave the documents where it found them, so if I need to I can get to them outside of Evernote easily. As I said this has been working fine for quite a while. Recently I've noticed that newly scanned .pdfs are getting updated by some process after they have been imported to Evernote. Unfortunately this causes the Import Folder feature to think they have been changed, and creates a second note with the pdf. And then another one. And sometimes then another one. I can see that the timestamp on the files has changed, usually by only a few minutes, and sometimes the size of the file itself has changed slightly. So in that situation I understand why Evernote is creating another note from the Import Folder. The question is, what the heck is updating these files, and why? The potential culprits I can think of are: - Evernote itself is modifying the .pdfs - The ScanSnap manager is doing it - Some Adobe process is coming along and doing it - Somebody at Microsoft thought it would be a good idea to change .pdfs slightly in some way. I wouldn't put it past them Have any of you seen this behavior? I figure there must be several people in this forum who are doing something similar.
  3. Well OK, but . . . email, password - for an ideaplaces account; this doesn't seem in any way unusual evernote access - you want them to show you your evernote notes, right? Seems like they would have to get this access dropbox access - only if you want them to also show photos stored in your dropbox on the map, sounds interesting but I haven't done this photos/contact access - only if you want them to show these on the map as well, I didn't do this either your location - can't answer "near me" questions without this, yes? Even then this is optional as well I think there are plenty of apps that ask for too much access, but this seems pretty reasonable given the feature set.
  4. I should be astonished to see that Evernote has removed such a useful feature, but I'm not really that surprised as they've done this kind of thing before. At least on their "What's new in Evernote 8" page they mention bringing back location search (but not the Atlas itself). It's probably overkill for nothing but a location search but on iOS there is an app IdeaPlaces that works with your Evernotes and provides both an Atlas view and some pretty sophisticated searching abilities. It's not free, but I've found it quite useful. If you search for IdeaPlaces in these forums you'll see some discussion of it with screenshots.
  5. I haven't used it myself, but there is a service that will let you email files into your Dropbox. I don't think this is associated with Dropbox directly, so you should probably be a little careful: http://sendtodropbox.com/ I realized when I read your question that I almost never export FROM Evernote, I'm always trying different ways to get things IN. I'm just curious, could you explain your use case a little?
