  1. This brings up another question here: how does it work if moving notes from a shared notebook to a person notebook (at the receiving end - the "sharee's" if you will). Will the tags created at the source be created in the receiving account, or disappear? If they get created, this would probably be a way to transfer notebook ownership to the right party. I have another usage scenario where this also has interest. I have a main account that I am mostly logged on to. On PC and mobile devices. This is also the one my web clipper is pointing at. Then I have a couple of other more specialized ones. (One specifically for freelance consulting, one specifically for personal studies with lots of material captured). Since it is easiest to capture via the main account (I bump into lots of things relevant to the specialized accounts while living life), I would like to set it up so I can "hand over" notes from the main account to one of the others. Then pick them up in my "inbox" there, once I get around to it. Which means moving them out and to another notebook there. Sometimes I already decide what to do with it, and assign some tags accordingly. E.g. if it is an action item, a reference item, a project support item etc.. It will be nice if those tags can carry over easily.
  2. Just chiming in that I am also frustrated about this deficiency. If Evernote is to be the hub for all stuff, it simply doesn't fly with this annoyance on the "entry gate" and most basic function of all: search.
  3. Instead of being forced to make hacks with the creation date, what we really need is an additional "custom" date field that can be used for whatever the user desires. (Deadline, expiry date, date of next review etc.).
  4. It has been discussed somewhere else in the forum recently. It would be a very welcome extension to the otherwise great web clipper, to be able to right-click on a link to a PDF (the same way it is possible on an image) and then capture it directly in EN. An added benefit compared to the current download (I often do it directly to an EN import folder so I don't have to delete it afterwards) is that the source URL would then also be included automatically. Something that is often very useful, too.
  5. Since EN can't really make relationships (structures, hiearchies, sequences) between notes and therefore has limited use as an outliner, I would LOVE to see MindManager (or another mindmapping tool) take on that role, in integration with EN. Ie. the possibility to manage a "tree" (including the sequence of child notes/topics) of notes in a mind map. This would be the best of both worlds. (Even without the mind map, it would be GREAT if EN got this functionality within. Similar to UltraRecall and other outliners, where parent/child relationships and sequence of siblings can be set up).
  6. I did try that earlier, but no luck. "Updated" is not affected by the delete. BUT when I had a second look a bit later, I noticed the "by Deleted" option. That worked fine to get hold of recent stuff. But thanks for the tip anyway
  7. I have been wondering as well, about this behaviour. I deleted the wrong note by accident, and now it is lost in the swamp of hundreds of notes in the trash bin and no way to search for it.
  8. I have seen Adobe claim somewhere on their blog that simply loading and saving a file with Acrobat can often reduce it's size. Simply because it rewrites the PDF format more efficiently. When I do this with ScanSnap files, I often see a reduction of 25%. (This happen with or without OCR'ing the document).
  9. The software with ScanSnap S1500 claims to be able to assign keywords based on text highlighted on a page. Haven't done much experimenting - but it works best for black-white docs with no other confusing colours. However, those keywords still stay in ScanSnap Organizer. It would be great if someone knew how to extract the keywords from the files. Then it would be possible to write scripts that imported the files in EN and assigned tags at the same time. I don't think I would use the "highlight" feature that much myself. But I would love to be able to control and direct my information flow with keywords already in ScanSnap Organizer.
  10. Interesting. I had been wondering if the search keywords would be retained. This is great. I have been pondering a lot about local vs. synched, in this case about a lot of PDFs that I would need to OCR before uploading. If this holds true, I can give my docs a grace period in a synched folder before moving them. I agree with GrumpyMonkey that the risk of having anything "cached" somewhere on servers for a while after moving it, is a very small risk. But I do share your concerns about putting certain things online. Not because I have anything especially sensitive / private. But Evernote would be a very ripe target for identity theft, if all personal / financial documents are there.
  11. I just had a bad accident with this as well. And my backup doesn't help me because I made so many other changes today throughout my DB. I disabled the warning earlier on, when I just started using EN. Does anybody know if it can be enabled again, short of reinstalling? It doesn't seem to be possible through the normal options...
  12. I experienced it one time today. Resolved by restarting app, then it emptied import folder. But this is the first time, in the 2 months I've used EN. Using Win client.
  13. If you have other PDFs (not created with ScanSnap), you can also do bulk-OCR with Acrobat 9. It doesn't have "watch folder" feature, but you can open a "OCR multiple" window and drag all your files there.
  14. I have been wondering about the same. I have not reached a decision yet, either. It's hard to tell which will be most accurate. But with big volumes / fast action needed, it is nice to be able to just shoot the docs off to Evernote and not wait for the computer to complete OCR. One benefit of local OCR though, especially for big documents, is that when you open them from Evernote later on, you are able to search within the file. Also, you are able to select text and cut/paste it somewhere else. (Unfortunately EN does not insert its index data into the documents). For big stuff like manuals, ebooks, I have performed local OCR afterwards, by opening the attachment in Acrobat 9. If you have Acrobat 9 (I got it with my ScanSnap S1500), you can delete the OCR data by going to Document > Examine Document. You will see an item "Hidden text". This can be removed. However, the more interesting question (for me) is: what does EN actually do when this info is already there? Does it use it at all (it seems so, from what I can tell)?. And if so, is it complimentary to it's own indexing or does it overrule it? Also, if using local OCR, I wonder if Evernote search will respond to this, in case one reverts to a free account at some point, or move the documents to an alternative, free account. I signed up to premium quite fast and didn't get to experiment before this. Anybody?
  15. I second that! It is a bit annoying to have to move the hand to the mouse, especially when dumping brief notes that just needs to have a few words and the correct tag(s) for later processing. Such as brain-dumping action items. (In my case, it is the Windows client).
