  1. Being able to manually create new contact notes without all the fuss would be fantastic. Evernote could be so much more powerful with better support for templates.
  2. Thanks P.J. I'll check out the Beta. I'm a little nervous revealing my workaround with you - it's probably not intended behaviour, and what if you 'fix' the bug and I'm left with no workaround?!? but OK - since you'll probably find it sooner or later anyways. After taking the photo, Scannable detects that it's a whiteboard and applies the new crazy whiteboard rendering. If you tap 'restore', and then 'enhance', it enhances it as a normal document, no longer detecting that it's a whiteboard. Please don't kill my workaround!
  3. Hi P.J., thanks for your reply. I did a simple test: I put some text on a whiteboard and took two snaps: one allowing the new Whiteboard mode to enhance the colour, and then a second snap of the same board after I apply my marvellous workaround and allow the colour to be enhanced by the old method. Just look at the difference in legibility of the text. It's like night and day. The old method leaves the text crisp, clear and highly legible, and the new method is a far less legible wash of colour and fat strokes. For further comparison, I included a snap I took of the opening hours at a doctor's surgery. Scannable defaulted to Whiteboard mode. Look how illegible the text becomes - it just looks silly. Also - on your note about file types. The settings lets you pick ALL images, ALL PDF, or auto. According to the description, Auto should save single snaps as images, and multiple ones as PDFs. That's great - but the problem is in Whiteboard mode, ALL snaps are saved as PDFs - even single ones. But what I really want is that single whiteboards are images... just like other kinds of snaps. Whiteboard - old style: https://www.dropbox.com/s/61e90elbo0ywe1g/whiteboard%20-%20old.png?dl=0 Whiteboard - new style: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2rpicdp64nxmm0v/whiteboard%20-%20new.pdf?dl=0 Doctor's opening hours example: https://www.dropbox.com/s/v1mcy1mzc5d6bur/snap%20of%20doctor%27s%20opening%20hours.pdf?dl=0 I hope this helps to get to the bottom of what's going on. cheers will.
  4. Hi, I use scannable multiple times daily to scan whiteboards, so I was excited to hear about the special Whiteboard scanning mode. Sadly, I'm left quite disappointed by it. My biggest complaint is that the quality of the text in the Whiteboard scan mode is a LOT poorer than it was before. The colours have this washed-out water-colour effect which adds no value and is just visually distracting - but the biggest pain is that the stroke is a lot thicker now, which makes small text on a whiteboard impossible to read. The quality before - when you were applying the same colour correction to whiteboards as you do to documents - worked great for whiteboards in my opinion, and it's really sucky now. Whiteboards are automatically PDFs now, instead of images. This means you can't re-size them within the Evernote note anymore. This is irritating. Generally, Scannable is one of the few apps I use every single day. I've found a workaround for these issues - but I hope a) you don't kill the workaround I found, and you improve the whiteboard mode or just revert back to how it was. Keep up the good work. cheers
  5. Hi, I use scannable a LOT to capture whiteboards. I have to say, since the recent update with official whiteboard support, the quality of whiteboard scans has decreased. Maybe it's a personal thing, but I find the whole water-colour-like strokes and colours distracting, and they make the text too thick and consequently for small writing very, very hard to read - especially later on a monitor. If there is a way to switch off this new 'whiteboard' mode and have whiteboards scanned like normal documents, as it worked in the past, that would be great.
  6. Hi, It would be great if the web clipper could screenshot the entire webpage in one go. The old (pre-acquisition) version of Skitch used to be able to do this and it was one of its best features. cheers will.
  7. So on my side, I take it all back. We just had to make sure we hit the Sync button in the client. We weren't doing this reliably... d'oh! Shared notebooks working great now.
  8. I am having the same problem. I have a premium account, my wife a free account. We have one shared notebook. When I add or update notes from my premium account, they are syncronised to her free account. But when she adds or modifies notes, I cannot see the changes in my account. Makes it very difficult to rely on Evernote for sharing notes...
  9. Very helpful: running both versions of Skitch on my Mac in parallel... best of both worlds.
  10. +1 to all the comments made here. I'm sadly disappointed with this Skitch update. Particularly not being able to snap a whole webpage anymore... this was one of the greatest features of the old Skitch. On the plus side, I find the Evernote integration seamless and very helpful. cheers
