  1. Hi snsokstan, Scannable outputs a JPG or PNG when it outputs an 'image'. It dynamically switches between the two options (PNG or JPG) based on the image content. Scannable uses a custom lossy PNG compression scheme and color palette minimizer that results is better looking (sharper) with lower file sizes. In practice, this means your typical black-print-on-white paper document, perhaps with a colored title, taken on iPhone 6, will be in the 200-400k size, with no fuzzy JPG compression around the text letters. A JPG with similar quality is typically 600-800k range and will have blurrier looking text. If the results are larger in filesize than they would be for JPG, or unable to authentically reproduce the colors in the document, Scannable uses the JPG format. The number of pixels remains unchanged between JPG and PNG. The reason for doing this is a) smaller filesizes sharper looking documents c) faster uploads This also applies to PDF, where Scannable embeds a PNG instead of JPG on each page. Having said all this, we'd love to know if you need a JPG file specifically for a technical reason (For example another app or web service that can only accepts JPGs) or weren't happy with the technical quality of the images? Could you describe your use case a little?
  2. There is no plans to support the ix500 at this time, but there is an app from PFU which enables wireless scanning to your phone. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/scansnap-connect-application/id464728181?mt=8 @NTJ —when a ScanSnap is connected via USB it will always override all WiFi connections.
  3. Thanks for the feedback Simon. Would you expect/want each single page to be a PDF or an image file?
  4. Search within Scanned PDFs is a Premium only feature. Scannable makes PDFs for multiple-page scans, by default. You can change this in settings. Please refer to https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23258452 And some more on the PDF search functionality itself: https://evernote.com/contact/support/kb/#!/article/23169032
  5. Thanks for the feedback, all. It all helps!
  6. Some clarifications: Currently Evernote iOS does not support search-within-PDF if the PDF is an image-based PDF, like the ones Scannable produces. I'll forward this chat to that team. However searches across all your documents will find a PDF from Scannable if it contains a word that OCR has detected. For example in this case, if you search for Volkswagen, even if this *only* appears in the PDF image, then this will currently be found. Note that this OCR can take some time, because it's done on the server. It's typical to get back results in minutes for PDFs of a few pages.
  7. ok that's handy to know, many thanks.
  8. Thanks for the feedback. Can I ask—what kind of places would you be faxing to?
  9. Hi Amil Those documents should be returned as search results. I've messaged you privately to try to figure out what's happening here.
  10. Ah, so there's the problem. Scannable can only currently connect with the 'ScanSnap Evernote Edition' because it has special Evernote-edition firmware. That is, this model with the green button: https://www.evernote.com/market/feature/scanner?gclid=CjwKEAiA_s2lBRCe1YPXxtSe-DcSJACCIh3LLw9GgPjwmP-wQA1nWY37Y5mB2Cc6V3vxka_UAxRCgRoCYpjw_wcB I'm sorry that your ScanSnap ix500 work with Scannable at this time.
  11. Hi drweidlich, Can I ask if there's anything unusual about your network setup? Does the ScanSnap Evernote Edition work correctly for your laptop/desktop machine via WiFi already? Also, you need to tap the Scan button on your phone/iPad. The green hardware button won't work (this is done for security purposes) when you're connected with Scannable. └ Keith
  12. Thanks for the feedback amcoffin. We're working on making Scannable work better for magazines and other more photographic content. As for the ScanSnap connection problem, here's a few items you might want to check. 1. Make sure your ScanSnap Evernote edition is configured for WiFi, and has the USB cable disconnected. Sounds like you've already done that. 2. Make sure your ScanSnap and your iPhone/iPad is on the same WiFi network. 3. Make sure your ScanSnap is running up to date firmware, although technically there's no update required to work with Scannable. I've seen one issue, once, where restarting the WiFi router solved the problem. We only saw this happen once in testing, but could be worth a last-ditch try. If this works we'd love to try to solve it so it doesn't ever affect anyone else.
  13. The Skitch PDF format keeps the PDF editable by Skitch / Annotation in Evernote. Hope that helps.
  14. Hi, thanks for the request. Multi-image support is a very popular request and something we're investigating. If you can share an example image/s, that would be very helpful!
  15. Thanks Kent - this is very useful feedback. We really appreciate it. Many of your points are things we're actively working on, and a few I've added some todos to look into. I have a few questions re: your recent points Ability to annotate the source PDF without having to create a new, seperate "skitch" version. Would you want this to save *over* the existing version, or add a version to your Evernote note? Ability to save the annotated PDF in whatever location I want (though the ability to annotate the source PDF would really take care of this). What kind of location do you have in mind? PDF editing on other devices, desktop versions especially. Can I ask what desktop machine are you using? PDF support is in Skitch for Mac now, and on it's way for Skitch for Windows Desktop. Again, we really appreciate your feedback!
