  1. I am so angry with myself for suffering through this as long as I have when a solution was available over a year ago. Well, no one to blame but myself. At least I will enter 2019 with less frustration over my scanner. :) Thanks for posting this.
  2. Oh, and iPhone works fine BTW. Not as snappy as the app was back in the day, but not like the ipad experience I'm having now.
  3. Yes, just tried this in airplane mode. Exactly the same experience. csihilling describes it perfectly. I can type a word or sentence on the keys (having no effect on the screen), then watch the keys be "typed" as if invisible hands were doing it on the ipad a few seconds later.
  4. You bring up a good point and it's probably the cause of my issues. For the longest time I used offline for all of my notebooks. For some reason (probably storage on ipad) I moved to "Do not download notes". So the minute I took your suggestion and tried using EN in a disconnected state, I couldn't do anything. I'm switching back to "Download all notes" to see how that works out.
  5. It's an iPad 4th gen with retina running 10.2 (latest). Evernote 7.18.1
  6. I kind of feel like you hadn't read my note. I did a completely fresh install on a completely freshly restored OS on a different device and got the same result.
  7. Same problem here. I'll admit my iPad is an older generation now with less horsepower than I wish. But I'm running plenty of other apps with no issues at all. Biggest challenge is speed of typing. It's like Evernote is syncing on every key press and just can't keep up with normal typing speeds. i even swapped iPads with my wife (same model), restored the device and reinstalled each app (didn't use iCloud backup). Same performance on Evernote (crappy). The app used to run just fine on this device. Any suggestions on how to improve or has the app just become so bloated that it will never run right?
  8. When Business Card scanning first launched, it was nearly perfect in finding the card and scanning the text. It seems lately it's having a hard time finding the outline of the card. The rectangular frame on the display keeps pulsing but rarely finds the card. I'm scanning on the same high contrast background (my black desktop) with a white business card. What gives?
  9. I'm using Outlook for Mac 2011. Since there's only one field for "name" in the app, I have to assume the Apple Mac app is parsing the first/last names. If the EN app were doing this parsing, it would presumably show up correctly in any receiving app....right? I'll contact support now. Thanks again for your help and thorough response.
  10. First, huge thanks for the quick reply on this! Second, I probably didn't explain myself as well as I could have. I confused the topic before by mentioning my own business card....I simply scanned my own card and sent my own info to myself so I could see what my recipients are seeing when this email comes across. Let me try again. My experience comes from my iPhone 5S. I believe my issue has nothing to do with the card OCR data parsing. That part works very well (surprisingly well!!). The issue I'm having is when I use "Email my info" to send my own contact info to others. It arrives in the form of an email from "no-reply@evernote.com" which has my contact details in text and in a vCard. The text and photo look fine. But the vCard has the name and address concatenated. But really, it's not concatenated, it's just that the source for that info is the "My Contact Info" section under Settings/General/Camera/Business Cards. This area has only a single field for Name and a single field for Address so when the vCard is created, it just grabs all the data in those fields and sticks them into the First Name and Street fields. When this vCard is opened by the recipients system it's not going to parse correctly into their contact management system.
  11. I absolutely love this feature. However, I just did a test of the "Send contact info" by testing with one of my own cards and found a concern... The vCard that is attached to the e-mail has the First Name / Last Name fields concatenated into the First Name field and the address is similarly bundled into the street address field in the vCard. I know this is driven by the way the data is entered in the My Contact Info setting in the EN app....the settings only have one field for name and address. The problem is that when the recipient gets this vCard and wants to import my data into their contact management tool, the data isn't parsed correctly which is sloppy. Surely vCard supports First Name/Last Name fields as well as Street/City/State/ZIP fields.
  12. I agree 100% with your perspective on how this should work and why we need it this way. This came up today when I shared a note with a colleague who then replied...but the reply went to my personal mail account rather than work so I didn't see it until much later. Sometimes I share notes personally and want my personal address to show and other times I'm using this for work. I only have two mail addresses and I work hard to keep things separate. Sorry but I don't think this is a realistic recommendation for the way most regular users would benefit from this feature. I toggle between work and personal activities all day and would expect to be able to toggle my e-mail address accordingly. I do this exact thing every time I compose an e-mail from my iPad or iPhone. I simply choose the "from" account and send away. Replies come back to the appropriate account. Very simple.
  13. Unfortunately the Salesforce solutions only seem to support Outlook on Windows...I'm using Outlook for Mac 2011 which seems to limit the available solutions for challenges like this. I may check out this book. Thanks for the recommendation.
  14. I've been in sales my entire life and have always looked for ways to improve my effectiveness. I'm a typical ADD sales guy who has the attention span of a 4 year old (maybe less) so I find myself falling out of line with my "system" due to distractions. I still achieve good results, but I think I work too hard to get there. I'm not asking you to cure my ADD but I am interested in feedback on improving my workflow and system. I recently changed jobs so I have a great opportunity to start with a clean slate and install a new process early before I get super busy (optimistic!) with customers. I've laid out some of my requirements and objectives in hopes that others have found tools to aid in these processes. The biggest issues I tackle are task collection/management and contact management. My primary systems are Mac (Office for Mac 2011), iPad and iPhone. However, any components I implment need to be cross platform because I can't be locked into a single one (what if I have to move back to Windows?) Required applications/services Salesforce.com Quotes Sales Forecasts Prospects/Leads/Contacts/Companies Tasks Exchange mail Corporate mail/calendar/contacts Tasks Evernote All notes Capture tasks/follow ups Objectives Achieve high level of productivity while complying with external requirements (ex: boss says business contacts must be in SFDC) Enter data once! Access data anywhere (Mac / iPad / iPhone / Android tablet / Windows PC) Automated to extent possible Task Management Enter tasks in meeting notes in Evernote Enter tasks in Outlook Enter tasks in SFDC All tasks to be combined into a single "to-do" list (ok if this is external to to apps above, as long as it complies with Objectives 3 and 4) Contact Management Enter contacts into system in variety of fashions: Scan business card Grab e-mail signature Import from spreadsheet, csv, etc. All contacts must be synced to a single location (Exchange?) Only customers, prospects, leads should be synced to SFDC (use categories in Outlook?)
  15. You mentioned this elsewhere and I felt stupid for not thinking of this sooner. All of a sudden I realized that I've been backing up to SugarSync (even before EN) and don't know what their encryption is (if any) to protect my data. Then the idea of knowingly sending all of my scanned docs to EN as well just raised my concern way too high. I've got medical docs, loan docs, financial statements, etc. Is it crazy to store all of that in the cloud without encryption? But the idea of using a 3rd party solution and also losing some search functionality brings me right back to where I'm at today. The whole reason I wanted to use EN for my scanned docs was for the search and tagging functionality (I suspect tagging would still work.) Hummm.... I'm using SugarSync too (and loving it) for all personal files. I have NOT specifically included any EN folders and they don't appear to reside in "My Documents" in Win 7. Where is the local data stored? I've been using Roboform for several years and absolutely love it. I've migrated all of my important credentials to completely random, complex passwords and don't have to remember a thing. Plus it syncs all that data between machines and stores the backup (Encrypted!!!!) in the cloud.
