  1. I have the same issue. Evernote crashes when I'm handwriting and I lose all my notes. Seems like this would be something that should just work with no issue. Galaxy Note 8.0
  2. So was this ever updated? Do we have handwriting recognition in PDFs? With my new Boogie Board RIP this would be REALLY useful. I've been searching for alternatives for evernote that I could switch to because of the non-existing handwriting recognition for PDF, but unfortunately none are available. As soon as someone has that feature I'm making the switch unless evernote gets it first. So...do we have handwriting recognition in PDFs yet?
  3. Yay!!! My PDF conversion thing never worked well anyway.
  4. I've decided to write a program to accomplish this since I think there is a need for it. Here's what I have so far: * Check all notes to see which ones are just .pdf and text * downloads pdf * converts to .png images of decent quality * adds them back into the note and upload Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm thinking of selling it for $2/month and it'll constantly scan your account for new .pdfs. Want to get some feedback before I get it into production quality.
  5. Any update on this item? It's been two months and it would be really nice to have this feature soon.
  6. Thank you for the reply! I still the product is awesome even lacking this feature...glad to know it's being worked on.
  7. Evernote pushes handwriting recognition as a big part of it's advertising. It's what got me into it as well. Go to evernote.com and it says "Capture Everything" and has handwritten notes on it. Then it says "Find things fast, Search by title, tag or even printed and handwritten text inside images". It does say "inside images"...so I will have to concede they were upfront about it, but it would be nice if there was a "No PDF" disclaimer on there. I consider PDF an image format because I can open it with photoshop and save it back to PDF. The fact that they don't do it for PDF doesn't make sense...they made an assumption that wasn't true and it needs to be revived every once in a while so that it gets fixed. I still love the product, but this one feature really hurts me when it comes to multiple page notes.
  8. I am also a premium user if that makes much of a difference. I even bought the Evernote notepad from the trunk to take more handwritten notes. Please add this as a feature soon!
  9. I'm going to go with the PDF to JPG method. 5 minutes a day for the next few months isn't too bad. Persistence always pays off! And before evernote...I had nothing! It was all memory and stacks of notebooks in a shelf. Thank you very much for your suggestions, I do appreciate everyone taking the time to respond.
  10. Unfortunately, I don't have time to wait for a computer to boot up when taking most of my notes. That and it doesn't feel as personal to my clients when I'm typing on a laptop and clicking away...it's a perception thing for them. And I wish it was just simple text, but often it's workflow diagrams, drawings of objects in 3d space...and lots of notes on those items as well. I'd hate to think that I'm unique with my request. It seems like all the pieces are there: 1) Image extraction for PDFs - Check 2) OCR algorithm for hand written notes in images - Check It's just putting the two together now. Of course, it might not solve my problem of having already scanned a years worth of notes into PDF.
  11. That is a good idea, except my handwritten notes are almost always full pages of text (I don't like to waste space). To retype, even the most relevant words, might be slower than just copying the images from the PDFs into evernote. I don't understand why evernote's searching capability needs to conform to PDFs searching capability. Treat them as images for search indexing (they can already extract images from PDFs as shown by the preview).
  12. Thanks for the help. I think I can find some software to batch convert to images, but how do I batch extract 450 PDF documents from evernote? The only way I can see is to go into each note and save the document out...that would take me a quite a while with that many PDFs. :-/ Maybe I'll just manually copy images and do about 4 a day, then in 4 months I'll have all my documents out as JPG.
  13. Is there any way to extract all PDFs that are in evernote and convert them to images? I have about 450 that need to be converted because of this limitation. Many of them are multi-page. Thanks for any help.
  14. Is there any way this can be changed? I've already scanned hundreds of hand written notes into evernote as PDF over the last year expecting the OCR to work the same as images. To go back and now export those PDFs as images would take me an incredible amount of time. I've lost one of main advantages I thought I had with evernote. I only realized this problem today, and found this thread, when I couldn't find a document I was searching for. I don't care about the PDF being searchable, I care about my evernote documents being searchable using the same algorithm that is used for images. Any help with this from anyone?
