  1. As an additional note - I have been experimenting with settings and find that by selecting ' use scanner driver' it is possible to scan business cards with some accuracy and send them to evernote as searchable pdfs it just gets better Steve
  2. Hi Folks A few notes on my decrepit old Scanner a 3 or 4 year old MP190 All in one machine Unlike many on this forum I don't have a whole bunch of stuff to digitise - But in common with all of you, I want rid of papers - especially the ones I can't find just when I need 'em! My solution seems to be working out along these lines 1. if it is already digital leave it alone - [i use Dropbox to sync across 3 machines and the android app for my HTC phone - So pretty much anything can be gotten hold of fairly quickly] Paper stuff - I'm using my old scanner because volume wise I can't justify the expense of say £170 for one of those superb snapscan machines - this may change as I get more 'into the project' I have the MP190 set as follows - I double click the Scan button on the machine and when the software pops up I then choose TEXT/OCR from the drop down menu and set the resolution to 400dpi - this then remains set for good. I scan the item and when it is completed I select 'save as pdf' the item then goes into a folder I have named 'paperdump' Evernote is set to watch this folder and the item is automatically synced The whole process is a little slow but the pdf's are fully searchable in EN - except for the scrappy ones printed on thermal paper - I make sure to give them a descriptive file name though. The MP190 cost me £30 on ebay a couple of years ago - and I know there are plenty of refurbs about So far so good Hope this is useful to someone Regards Steve www.thriftysites.co.uk
