  1. Good point. Ideally this really should be a toggle option next to Print Headers in the print dialog
  2. Thanks, learned something new! So it seems Adobe Reader has an option to do a "poster print" which for some use cases can be an acceptable way of printing a single page PDF over multiple pages.
  3. Amazing. I double checked and it definitely printed the note title without headers. However, I was mistaken and not using the latest version. But rather I was on 6.8 (OSX). I updated to 6.9 and now it behaves as you described. Thanks very much!
  4. Thanks for confirming DTLow. I tried playing with the scale settings as you suggested but without luck.
  5. On the latest Evernote deselecting "Print Headers" still prints the note's title. A clumsy workaround might be to remove the note title, then print, then put it back.
  6. Anyone know how to turn off title printing?
  7. As the title suggest I have a fairly long note that I want to print as a PDF. The reason for this is there doesn't seem to be a way to print a note without using a title? Anyway if I use the convert to PDF feature, it always make one large PDF consisting of one page only. This happens irrespective of how long the original note is. Any way to get a note to convert to PDF with multiple pages?
  8. Yeah it's kind of a minor feature, and yet one of those things that you only sort of notice when it's not there anymore. For example yesterday I was trying to copy a tracking number out of a scanned label. Slightly annoying to have to manually type it out. That's probably a good thing anyway, or at least as a default for average users. Not that it will ever happen, but as somewhat of a power user, I wouldn't mind having a text OCR layer added via EN cloud if it was an optional toggle.
  9. My pleasure. Sounds good Well, I think that's partly right. It's no longer *purely* image based. My understanding is it becomes a hybrid using multiple layers. Some layers are text and bounding boxes, whereas the original image layer remains on top or below. (This is configurable in advanced options in ABBYY)
  10. FWIW I selected some text on a recently document. You can see the result here in color. Wonderful
  11. So for the benefit of anyone reading this thread, I have some feedback. After downloading a trial version of ABBYY Pro Finereader, I was able to get my old results back. AFR does an incredible job of OCR while making the text regions selectable. In, fact it even allows one to export a scanned PDF back to Word document (it recognizes elements such as tables and fonts etc) I now believe this could be a the reason why some my scanned-&-ocr'd documents have selectable text and some do not. The ones that do have selectable text where originally fed through the Fujitsu ScanSnap software and OCR was done there. The ones that do not, were most likely OCR's by the Evernote cloud. I recently learned that ABBYY is the engine that powers the ScanSnap software under the hood, which was a bit of an 'aha' moment So where does this leave me. Well, on the one hand the OCR results of ABBYY are simply stellar. OTOH, however, it's over 100 bucks! I might just ditch my all-in-one Epson and haul the ScanSnap out of storage just to use the software!
  12. Perhaps I explained it poorly. Actual text PDF's are always selectable and searchable. I am referring to specifically scanned PDF's that are images that have additional OCR on them. It's possible to select parts of the image as text for some of these. (See my original image) Interesting. If I may ask, do you have a good OCR scanner in mind for Mac? I really miss ScanSnap as it comes with ABBY software (which is really good imo)
  13. This is possible. I'm on the hunt now for good Scanning software, as Epson Scan doesn't seem to work. Interestingly OSX Native scan works, but its a little primitive. For example it doesn't support color text mode. Waited about 8 hours, still nothing. PDF's are all within limits and spec as per the support page you referenced. May have to open a ticket. Thanks for the help
  14. This is related enquiry to OCR'ing in PDF. I've noticed in addition to some documents being OCR'd while others not, there is division between successfully OCR'd documents. Some OCR'd searchable documents allow text to be selected (cut and paste), while other not. Here is an example:
  15. Thanks. I'll wait a few hours just to be on the safe side, before opening a new ticket.
  16. Hello All. I've been a premium user for a few years and always used a Scansnap to scan my documents. Generally this has produced searchable PDFS's. However I recently moved and bought an Epson Workforce WF-3620 All-in-one scanner/printer. I have used both direct scanning to Evernote and via emailing. Either way my documents refuse to become searchable. I'm really confused by the criteria and when EN decides to OCR something or not. I really just want it to work reliably as this is a required feature. Any pointers would be great
  17. Experiencing broken/missing image over here too, running on OSX (EN v6.7.1). Totally scary, can't feel like I can rely on Evernote. Really unacceptable to be having data loss I'm a premium user, and revisions in history have the same problem.
  18. +1 Find and Replace in notes would be handy. Needed it a few times
  19. Let me explain, say I had a dream about clouds and I logged it in my dream journal in evernote. Now months later I think.. "hey remember that weird dream about clouds I had" I can't remember anything else, just "cloud". So guess what. I type that in and I get a hundreds of articles and clippings I've collected in my results (cloud servers, icloud whatever), and somewhere in there is my journal. Now you might say I should have tagged it "dream" or something. Sure, but maybe I just want any mention of clouds in my notes to see if there is a connection. The point is, once you have a bunch of content from outside that you didn't create, it becomes a mess. Well I'd like to see a "My Content" search option. That only searches stuff I wrote via the desktop or mobile app. Anything clipped or imported from other sources should be excluded.
  20. Well actually, window is not a common word for the notes I've made. Only 2 notes in total. Obviously because in context the scans are useless to the task at hand (searching *my* notes)? To be clear the scans are useful for record keeping, and the articles are interesting. Which is why I have them in EN to begin with So I guess one could save that as saved search. Still it doesn't solve the issue of all the web articles showing up. I'm thinking I might need to create 3 separate evernote accounts. One for my notes. And one for interesting clippings. And one for scanned records. Seems like a huge pain just to solve what should be a fairly straightforward use case.
  21. Quick overview: I use EN for 3 things - Clippings from the web (articles, web pages etc) - Scanning documents (PDF's stored in EN) - Writing notes Whenever I do a search it brings up a whole bunch of noisy ***** from the articles and paperless documents I've scanned. eg for "window". I'm trying to find the notes i made about window frame sizes for DIY. Now obviously I don't know if I remembered to tag it correctly or whatever so saying just use categories or notebook specific search doesn't help. The point is I just want to search my stuff and not have a bunch of useless scans and articles crowding out all the results. I've tried a bunch of search options, but cant get it right. This seems like it should be a really obvious need.... Any ideas??
  22. Thanks, that works! WRT to the link you posted. I'm confused how the syntax compares to the GUI search options? Are the two separate? Can they be used together? Are the GUI options a subset of the Advanced Syntax ones?
  23. I don't think anyone from EN cares btw. I've observed over time these forums are for helping each other, and not improving the product. You might all it a shame, but it is what it is.
