  1. Thanks for the reply. I can use a Mac at home. I use Chromebooks often also. Well I just do not want cryptic links to a pdf. I like the look of seeing the pdf note as I do when I directly scan it into Evernote. If I scan into a Google Drive folder, what is the process to get the pdf into EN from Google Drive? Again I would like it to look like I scanned it. Not just a pdf small link.
  2. Hello. I am looking for best practices work flow options. I have a free account. I could upload to Plus but was seeing what my options were. I would like to use my Xerox copier at work to create pdf's of my paper. It would scan it in and the machine can email the attached pdf to my Gmail. What is the cleanest way to get those pdfs into Evernote? If I download them into a Google Drive folder can they be imported into EN right from the Google Drive folder? I do NOT want them to be attachments to a note. I would like them to look as if I scanned them directly into EN from a scanner. If that is not possible, can it be accomplished by upgrading to Plus and then emailing each scan into my unique EN email address? In other words the be picture is to us my work Xerox machine to somehow get the scans into EN. My local scanner is slow and I am looking to speed up the import. Thanks.
  3. Luca, Christianboyce, Burger N Fries, Metrodon, Thanks for the information on annotation! Much appreciated! Wayne
  4. Luca, PS. What program did you use to illustrate that screenshot to me. I am a teacher and I think something like that would be really useful for me. Wayne
  5. Please explain how I can download the beta you are speaking of. I am not familiar with that process. If I download the beta will the official update also install correctly when it is ready? Thanks for the info. Wayne
  6. I am also a Mac user in 2.0.4. I tried restarting Mac. I notice that with my first scan when opening up EN it displayed it as inline. However, when I ran the same page in again now is was as attachment. In my preferences it says it is as "inline" but showing up as attachment. Please advise if there is something I can do Wayne
  7. OK I am understanding more but just a little confused. My primary purpose as well is for document storage an retrieval. I have been trying to tag EVERYTHING and put them in notebooks as well. I do not mind doing local OCR with my Scansnap but as Kevin mentioned is it really necessary? Could I just scan and upload and let EN perform OCR for my retrieval, and then in the future if I relocated pdf and needed further more local OCR download the pdf and OCR it myself? Would I be loosing quality of some sort? I guess I was looking for a PRO/CON list of local OCR vs. EN OCR. Thanks for the input. PS If the word "pizza" is in a document and I search in EN will that find that document differently in EN ocr and LOCAL ocr? Does EN search Titles, Tags, and ALL text? It would seem to me that after a few hundred uploads searches could be overcrowded with common words. Still trying to understand what exactly it does. maybe I am over thinking this! Wayne
  8. Ok Thanks. What is the differnce between "right click" and "open with" or "save as" compared to export pdf. I am most interested in information about the choices I have to get my pdf document back out of EN to my hard drive if I need to manipulate. I used to export, but if you are saying"open with (application)" gives me access to the PDF directly is this the best way? If I alter it and "save" does the new app save changes to EN? or do I have to re-import. Where in the help section is this info clearly delineated? Thanks!
  9. Dave, What about the 3rd question. If I install EN software on the new mac won't it just download everything again? What would be the difference? thanks
  10. Dave, Thanks for the reply. A couple of follow ups: Your recommendation to OCR locally says it will give a copy on my local drive to search and edit at will. However, my workflow is that I am using the Scansnap to scan "directly to Evernote". I guess that bypasses that step. What would be a recommended work flow? Do I scan to all different file structure folders first locally and then upload to Evernote? That seems like double the work. OR, can I scan directly into Evernote and "retrieve" my PDF's easily from the client back to my desktop? Please speak specifically about how easy it is to get my original pdf data back to my drive. Can I drag and drop 50 or so documents at once? If not is this a feature that is important to others and will be implemented sometime? It would seem a shame to have to keep a manual database of all different folder on my HD , drag them individually to EN, and have EN recreate that database online, AND AGAIN on my HD just within the EN application. My intention is to *ease* my document usage not make it a side job. Please advise and educate me on these issues above. Also my original question #3 could you address about the OCR ability coming with a document OCR'd in EN that is subsequently downloaded locally. Is it OCR'd just as if I scanned it OCR. Is EN OCR as good or better than Fujitsus OCR ABBYY Fine reader? Thanks for the info, as I want to go about this workflow the best way possible from the beginning.

Postby merk850 on Tue Mar 02, 2010 9:48 pm I have the new Scansnap S1300 and I am using it with the Scansnap Manager software on the Mac. My question is about using the supplied OCR software that came with the Fujitsu. Compared to the last 300m model this comes with ABBYY Fine Reader OCR. I am scanning with the Fujitsu software manager and it is going directly to Evernote. (cool!) 1) Should I run this OCR every time with each scan? It takes longer though because it is processing the OCR and then sending the OCR file to Evernote. 2) OR, should I just scan as PDF and send to Evernote and let Evernote process the OCR? (This is quicker) 3) What is the difference technically, do you think? Is Evernote running superior OCR? Will Evernote return that OCR'd PDF to my local client? I do not mind paying the premium membership if this is somehow a better work flow. I am just beginning my home scanning and I want to start the right work flow. Thanks for any help! Wayne
  12. Dave, I am new and want to get a better understanding before I take the time and effort to upload all these PDF's. Will the Mac client have the ability to drag and drop PDF's out of the client to the desktop? OR onto an email in GMAIL or even Mac Mail? If I want to access a PDF from my Mac client on my local machine to manipulate it let's say in PDF Pen Pro what is the easiest way to get it on the desktop? Thanks
  13. I am currently running on Lepoard and will get a new mac in a month that will be Snow lepoard. I am just starting my scanning of documents this month and I am doing a lot! I do not want to loose anything. Can someone give me some info as to how this will work. 1) Can I migrate over all of my data from old mac to new mac with firewire and evernote will come with it? 2) Where is Evernote data stored? 3)Or is this all not as crucial b/c I am syncing everything online and when I get the new mac I should just download the software again and it will download all my details again? Thanks I am looking for some help before I run into any problems like mentioned above. Wayne
