  1. You've confirmed what I suspected; scanning as as Word document then saving into EN is going to be my best bet for storing files that I'm pretty confident will need changes. Since Evernote won't be able to search it like a PDF or JPEG, I'll have to either add descriptive terms in the note and/or title. Thanks for helping me think this through!
  2. Ugh...I always forget to add my OS. I'm mostly using Win 7, although we also have XP on the desktop. I prefer PDF in the long run, but I do have some files that will be tweaked pretty regularly. I don't have an easy way to manipulate the text in a PDF, which is why I was considering scanning to Word, because a JPEG wouldn't work in this situation. I don't have any problem *making* PDF files (I use CutePDF too), but I don't quite understand from your post what format you would use to save files that may/will need to be updated/changed several times a year. I checked out the software you mentioned (PDF X-Change). Instead of changing the document, it masks out the area so the user can write over the top. My perfectionist side would rather be able to edit the existing text. My perfectionist side is obnoxiously picky. Sometimes living with me drives me crazy. *lol*
  3. I just purchased a ScanSnap S1300 (yay!), and I'm excited about scanning all the bazillions of piles of papers I've been saving over the years. Besides the regular everyday papers, I also homeschool which generates a bunch of paper even though I try to reduce/reuse/recycle as much as I can. Most of the items I'll be scanning will be for reference or education, but there are a few things that will need to be changed and/or updated as time goes by. What would be the best format for me to save those files? The ScanSnap software Evernote quick buttons appear to only save as PDF or JPEG. Should I save these particular files as Word documents instead? Or as both a PDF and DOC file to have the OCR function and the ability to tweak as needed? I don't have Acrobat programs other than Reader, so I'm limited as to what I can do with PDF files. I'd also like to figure out a way (hopefully free) to sometimes split the PDF files that ScanSnap creates. I have a lot of magazine articles and would love to remove the adds and backsides of a bunch of articles. I might have to figure out a way to afford software to manipulate PDFs the more I think about it. Ugh...

    k-12 Homeschooling

    My son is only 2nd grade, so most of my Evernote homeschool notes are mostly teaching ideas for me. We use TOG so I'm thinking of making a TOG Stack and then adding notebooks for each week of each year plan. (ex: Y1U1W1) Then store ideas to be used the next time we come around to that week. For example; lessons plans, worksheets, craft projects, etc. I did buy Evernote Premium for my college age daughter. She's not taken the time to learn how to use it.
  5. The pictures I take with my Touch and iPad are rotated when I sync Wonderful Days with Evernote. With the auto rotate option clicked in WD all my vertical pixs were horizontal, same when it was not except that my horizontal pics ended upside down. Can anyone help please!
  6. As much as I love Pinterest, I tend to duplicate the pinned items in the same type of categories to my Evernote account. This is because if the blog/website/etc. that you've pinned ever goes away, you've lost the information that you pinned. But if you save it in your Evernote account you will ALWAYS have it, even if the site is taken down or the content changes.
