  1. Hi All,

    Oh dear! I don't normally update until a version has been around a while. Unfortunately I made a bad decision when away on business and updated!

    I have over 32,000 Notes and probably half of those contain emails.

    The upgrade has stripped a lot of the headers from the emails and placed them at the top of the Note. Sad thing is, no amount of updates will get this one sorted.

    Feeling very miffed at this one.





  2. Hi Michael,

    Very frustrating, I feel for you.

    I have only ever seen this happen when two people are working on a Note, but you seem to be taking care of that. As you will obviously be aware Evernote is a great collaborative tool, but sadly not at the same time!

    We share over 22,000 Notes in my Business and I really don't think this has happened.

    It might be worth setting up some share Notes for testing purposes to see what is happening. I am going to guess that even though you are syncing, the Note is not updating correctly on both your computers.

    Best regards



  3. Anyone else get this email:

    Inspiration, Creativity, and Disruption Come Together

    Some of the world’s most inspiring trendsetters, inventors and heroes gathered at the Tobacco Dock in London for WIRED's annual flagship conference. We’ve captured their inspiring stories for you, and now you can dive into it all with our WIRED2016 notebook.

    Clicked the link but it fails for every link on the email. Shame I would like to read this.

    Responded to email but as expected it bounced back as a none return email address.

  4. Hi Gaz,

    Got to agree with that.

    I bought the ScanSnap ix500 for the office and it makes very little difference in scan time to OCR. But it is available instantly!

    Superb scanner by the way and definitely worth buying.

    I have the ScanSnap S1300i in my study at home and it takes  a little longer to OCR.

    Then I have the Doxie DX250 wifi model in my bag when travelling. The wifi is not worth it to be honest, but it is great portable scanner.

    I would advise not adding these steps and scan directly into Evernote.
    I do keep the original document, and only discard it later after I verify it's successfully imported to Evernote.

    I have no idea why you think your method is that much better that you 'advise' not adding these steps!

    As a long term business and personal user of Evernote as well as being an Evernote advisor and helper to both business and personal users, I would advise that this method provides a simpler and quicker way of getting scans into your computer.

    Best regards

  6. Hi to the OP,

    Gaz's list of things to look out for is very important and definitely worth reading a couple of times.

    For what it is worth I see Evernote as my filing cabinet, Notebooks are Drawers and hanging folders in the filing cabinet and the documents in the folders of your filing cabinet are my Notes in Evernote.

    I do use Notebooks and probably more than most, but run my business and personnel Evernote very strictly.

    We are currently scanning over 30 years of order files so, like you, we can get rid of the paperwork that has taken over the store room. We use a high end scanner and I have found it more effective to get the scanner to OCR which only takes a few seconds more even on large scans.

    I also found it easier with the business account to scan to a specific folder on the computer then have that as an automatic 'Import Folder' on a Windows computer. This gives us two copies of every document. The computer folder, can, if we require, be saved to an external hard drive or off line. But the problem we have is our Evernote database is over 30K Notes and about 30GB in size.

    Once the scans are in the 'Import Folder' you can then re-name if required and store in specific Notebooks. I would look at making generic Notebooks that might cover a number of years or similar type of data. You can then add 'Tags' to differentiate. So for example our daily work encompasses the following Notebooks:

    Diary - 2016 (any enquiries be they telephone or email go into here until dealt with)
    Diary - 2016 - Completed (once an enquiry has been dealt with the Note goes into here)
    Word - 2016 (for quotations which automatically go into this Notebook from the computer folder where they are saved)

    Every year I add a Tag to the Notes for the year and then put them in a Dairy Archive folder. The same with Word documents they will have a Tag then go into a quotes archive folder.

    So as you can see it is about looking at your requirements and adapting Evernote to suit.

    Best regards


  7. Hi,

    The only real reason that I have found with over 30K Notes for the font to change is when I import an email via Outlook, then start typing myself. This can cause multiple fonts to appear. I didn't think it did this in the past and has only started in the last 3 - 6 months that I am aware of.

    If I start a new Note and type in it, there doesn't seem a problem.




  8. Hi bobebo67,

    Thanks for coming back.

    I have just checked on my MacBookPro and like you I cannot see the title when I go to pdf preview. There is obviously something different with my iMac. I am away from home for the week, so cannot check why this is.

    However, it may be because I have a pdf writer on the iMac, or the fact that the MBP is an older one with an older OS.

    Hopefully Evernote will solve the problem soon.
