  1. I've been using Evernote for years, but I've encountered something I'd never seen before. I routinely keep handwritten notes in a pocket notebook or steno pad and scan them into Evernote for safekeeping and search. Today I scanned my pocket notebook, dropped the PDF into the Evernote app on my MacBook, but when I checked it in the app on my phone I saw some of the text had been removed. I've attached two screenshots, one taken from a page from the original note in the Evernote app on my MacBook, where everything still looks fine, and the other of the same page as it appears when I call up the same PDF on my iPhone. If I tap the Annotate button in the app on my phone, I can see the original writing on the page — but even if I annotate that page and save it, the redacted page still displays. Is this because I put a line through some of my notes? If that's a feature in the iOS app, how can I turn it off so I can see my complete handwritten notes as I intended them to look?

  3. Hi, I converted all my documents to electronic copies a couple of years ago, I am now looking at using Ever Note to store my documents mainly to give me a better way to search documents, but have a couple of concerns and am after some thoughts. 1. As EN doesn't offer End to End encryption I am looking at Encrypting the pdf's... and attaching them in EN (I know I wont be able to search on the contents but if I TAG well this should resolve the mostly), has anyone else used this approach and how well does it work not just on desktop but on web, mobile... 2. Corruption I have read some articles on the web of people suffering from Notes corrupting does this still happen is there a known trigger (I will be backing up my EN data folder but my backup's will only be kept for 90 days) Thanks
  4. After struggling for years to go entirely paperless, I am delighted to have found Evernote. Its search capability is unbelievably good, and its UI is superb. There is only one feature it lacks for my use. I have built databases over the years that contain 500 to 2000 documents. These Access databases include some metadata with each document that provide a way to search through them, which is unnecessary of course in Evernote. I have been able to extract the document images--nearly all pdfs, but also including some other formats--from the databases and place them in a folder, one file per document. My problem is getting them into Evernote as individual notes. I only need to do this once, as I will be scanning or entering all newly acquired documents manually. I found that I can use Finder's Add to Evernote command on each file name, and it does exactly what I want. But, it only does it one file at a time; it is not present if I select multiple files. I have actually imported over 500 documents using that command, but it is a mind-numbing repetitive task. The obvious thing would be an extension of the command to multiple files for the Mac and the equivalent one for the PC.
  5. All Notes have a white background color. It will be good to include different background colors - like the black and foreground can be white (or green). Does anyone know if this is possible right now ?? Thx
  6. My ReMarkable tablet is a great note taking device. I export an image PDF and include it into an Evernote document. The Evernote text preview on my Android is near perfect. I cannot copy the preview text. How can I export or copy that OCR text into another Evernote document? All help is appreciated. Premium user. SocceRef.
  7. Hi all, I've been testing how to use evernote for organizing receipts and invoices for multiple properties i own. The reason I chose evernote is because of the support, robust platform, excellent fast phone scanning and searchable text. Mostly it's working great. The one thing I cannot seem to control is the ordering of the photos. If I take a sequence of 5 photos in one note, I would like the newest ones to come on top instead of the newest ones to go to the bottom. Is there any way to control this? Thanks Nick
  8. Hi there. I want to share my "paperless workflow" scheme here to get some feedback, if any. thank you. Naz.
  9. I have been 100% paperless for a few years now, and was 90% paperless for years before that (usually due to others, not me). Evernote is how I have done this. All of my notes and emails get saved in Evernote, I clip web pages, save PDF files, and scan any paper I receive into Evernote (I have the Evernote Scanner or use my smartphone camera). Here are some resources I used to go paperless: https://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/search/label/paperless
  10. Hi, I'm using evernote since some years with my Canon P-215. This works fine, the only thing annoying me is this stupid software CaptureOnTouch Canon provides. It shows confirmation dialogs and doesn't let me scan multiple scanprocesses and the scanners buttonpresses aren't recognized every time. So I wonder, do you have any ideas for a better software to scan directly into evernote using Windows? Greetings Torsten
  11. So guys, need your help, im going to college again(nutrition) and i want to be more paperless and efficient, beside that i like studying different kind of subjects, but unfortunately i have to keep printing pdfs for annotation and things like that, i also have a notebook with me for frequent annotations on things i find interesting, or read, saw somewhere. My main question is, which could be the right device for that use, handwriting notes, annotate on pdfs, draw, read ebook and make annotations there(points, arrows, handwritten notes, post its), save web articles for studying, ill use the evernote to keep all of them in the same place, but i need the manual thing on a portable device or ill start to get way too much mechanic and not creative, i like mind maping, drawing, highlighting, colors, for my learning. From what i saw, the ipad pro together with the notability app or the good notes 4 would be a good call(i heard those are good together with the evernote), but im new in this world and i want some suggestions, thats it, i currently have a lg g4, and this would be my first apple device maybe, need help. Edit: I already have a dell notebook for when i need a true desktop.
  12. Is it a good idea to move all documents from my entire lifetime to EverNote? I have organized folders from all the way back when I was in grade school, high school, college, my first jobs, etc. I have typed letters, diary entries, and creative writing as well. I am tired of having to live out of multiple places to find my stuff, such as my laptop for some folders versus Google Drive for others versus EverNote for others. I want everything is one place, period. Is it a good idea to place *all* of my documents I ever had into EverNote? I could easily organize them and such, but I am wondering if it's good for the long haul. Maybe putting the eggs in one basket is a bad idea, or maybe it will save me a lot of frustration and time as long as I backup my EverNote account. Thoughts?
  13. Hello all - first time poster here... I've been banging my head against the wall trying to define a paperless process that is going to hold in the long term and I've been suck in this darn analysis paralysis loop. I'm hoping you smart folks out there can shed some light on Evernote so that I can better make a decision. Several years ago I made a concerted effort to go paperless using Ironic Software's Yep product. My process was to scan in pretty much everything (all receipts, statements, bills, etc) using my ScanSnap S510M, give it a date-based name, put in a folder (same folder for everything) and then use Yep to assign and manage tags. This worked out fairly well until I tried to upgrade to Yep 2. World turned upside-down. The product was complicated and I found its filing system awkward and inflexible. For those of you who don't know, Yep basically allows you to tag files regardless of where they are in your filesystem. At the time I had considered Evernote, but I was too worried about security to embrace it. So, I read David Sparks' book Paperless and started a new process. In this process, I would rename files (mostly automatically using Hazel) and carefully place them into folders and subfolders. This got, shall we say, tedious... I still have nightmares about this. Needless to say, I was unable to sustain my efforts. Since then, I've accumulated boxes of "to be scanned" whilst redefine my processes. I generally think my two biggest mistakes where: (1) not focusing enough on the process and (2) not clearly defining what to keep and ditch. So... My new process will be as automatic as possible. I'm going to have a set of rules for what I scan. I'm also going to use a combination of FileThis.com (an AMAZING service btw) and Hazel to prep my scanned/downloaded pdf files (name them, tag them, etc). What I'm not sure about is how to do the ongoing management of those files. (re)Enter Evernote... My on again off again love affair with Evernote and its sexy features could be a dramatic "one that got away" Lifetime movie. Ok, maybe not. I've dabbled with it for note-taking purposes. I've read almost every article there is about it. I've done everything but put it to the test. Here are my concerns.. I'm hoping you experts can help me address them (or validate them). Evernote isn't for everyone. Security - I'm a little concerned about security at rest on Evernote servers. I know they don't encrypt data on their servers. Easy fix, right? Just make a local notebook for sensitive information (such as taxes, legal stuff, etc). Well, I've read some posts that suggest that Evernote might get rid of local notebooks. Any truth to that? Lock-in - Let's face it, once I get 20,000 pdf files in Evernote, I'm pretty committed. But what if I need to leave Evernote? (Let's just say something changes some day and I no longer want to use it.) What then? I know you can export notes, but what if I just want all my pdf files sent to a directory? I've seen the way that Evernote stores attachments on a Mac and it would take some scripting to get all the files out - not to mention their tags. Trust - I realize this is something that I just need to get over, but I've read that occasionally Evernote, through some bug or strange corner case, has misplaced a note or two. Can I trust that Evernote won't lose notes? I would plan on doing backups, but with 20,000 notes you may never realize you even lost the note. For example, I make lots of physical donations for tax write-offs. At the end of the year, I would just search Evernote for the "charity" tag or the "2015 Tax" tag. If the note isn't there, I'll never know it was lost, backup or no. One thought I had was to add a backup of the file using Hazel. I.e. Before I use Applescript to load the file into Evernote, I could copy the file to a backup location with some OpenMeta tags. If I do this, I could easily search using Finder. Then what would be the point of Evernote? I don't care much about the sharing feature for my paperless files. I do love the email-to-Evernote feature, but I could live with out it. I could even resurrect Yep (now version 3) and use it as a file viewer/tagger since it supports OpenMeta, though I still find Yep unnecessarily complicated. Again, Evernote is pretty sexy... Decisions decisions... ;^)
  14. I am about to embark on a project to reduce 25 years of handwritten journal pages to Evernote and regain about 10 ft of bookshelf space and am studying my options before I begin. The bulk of it is half pages, two pages per day. So optimum would be one scan per day. Which might not work with a document feeder. And if it can be a single jpeg I want them to be stored landscape, so they are easy to read. I think I will choose jpeg so that the printed dates on the pages are searchable. There is not a handwriting OCR alive that can cope with my hand writing. Even I have difficulty once it gets cold. Anyone try this? Anyone have thoughts on how to proceed?
  15. Hi all, Noobish question here: I have never used any digital tool to learn a new language, and since I carry Evernote everywhere, anyhow, I wondered if there wasn't a way to use it for my purposes. Now, since I have literally no concept of what I can do with Evernote in this regard, I simply wanted to ask what you guys recommend. I am mainly looking to create a few tables to beef up my vocabulary of Business Finnish , but I am really open to everything else that can be done with this marvellous little program! Thanks in advance for all answers, and thanks Evernote Corporation for effectively making my life better! Yours, Rafe
  16. I started my paperless journey about 3 years ago. I have a small business and scan all business documents and personal documents to ScanSnap organizer. I use Evernote (as well as Organizer) for reference materials, to do's and the like. I see where many of you scan directly to Evernote. Are you talking about business files? Am I complicating my paperless journey? Pros? Cons? By the way, I have redundant backup with both external hard drive and web backup.
  17. Hello, I am looking for a sofware, which can auto add tags to documents based on the content. For example it recognizes the date: 01.01.2001 and adds a tag with date: 01.01.2001 or it recognizes the recipient of the bill Adam Smith. So it adds the tags Smith and Adam. Then, to find the file later on, I just have to type Adam Smith and see all the files regarding Adam Smith and so on. I actually think it should be possible with todays hard- and software, but I couldn't find anything like that. I need it to realise my paperless buero I would really appreciate any help. Best Regards, J.
  18. Hi been playing with Evernote for a few months and really like it. Although I currently have a premium account for a year courtesy of my mobile supplier. Don't think I could justify another subscription service on a limited budget. I've just started using a doxie scanner and would ideally like to use with Evernote but I'm struggling a little with workflow. Currently I 1 scan the document(s) 2 connect scanner to PC via USB to view/rename in doxie app 3 send to Evernote 4 file in Evernote I have a Wi-Fi card for scanner but doxie says that scans done that way cannot be searchable PDFs? Am I missing something obvious? Also once scanned and uploaded how do I manage/reconcile electronic copies with paper. There are some scans that for various reasons I also need to keep paper copies of. I'm scanning these so I have easier access from multiple locations. There are others that I'm nervous to shred in case for some reason I can't access e copies. On well think that's quite enough for my first post. Nice to meet use all. Btw resources mix of windows/android. Use to be quite a Mac advocate though could never justify UK prices. Now been usin DOS/window's so long difficult to break ties after 30 something years lol Trevor
  19. Hey all, I am thinking of getting a Doxie scanner to make scanning more convenient for other members of my family. My current scanner will not scan long receipts (over 14"). I have quite a few long receipts that I need to scan. For those that already own a Doxie One or Doxie Go, will they can receipts over 14" or do they have to be less? Thanks in advance, Rob Hix
  20. Any simple guide to scanning an image on iPhone and having text in that image searchable? I've been trying for an hour to do this. I've seen demos of it working, but it's not working for me. Tried taking a snapshot of the document using Scanner Pro and also Evernote app. Premium member now. Cheers in advance, tearing my hair out here.
  21. I'm thinking about going paperless at home. It sounds like the perfect solution, but I'm really curious about other people's experience after doing it for some time. Does it really give you the advantages of filing/retrieving all your documents? Or does it mean that you're just spending extra effort in scanning/filing your documents? Are you still consequently scanning everything?
  22. Hi Everyone, I have put together a collection of Evernote resources that I provided to my staff to get them started with Evernote. Thought I would share it here incase others find it useful. Here is the link- http://evernote4teachers.postach.io/ On a side note there is a heap more posts on my blog about Evernote in Education http://becspink.com/evernote/. Happy to answer any questions and share further! Bec
  23. For many years, I've been in the habit of carrying, and having quick at hand, a pocket notepad on which to write random notes or doodles. Even while designing a website, I'd write, say, hexadecimal codes calculated for CSS colors or special characters. Or URLs for links. Items for momentary use. When a page was full, I'd rip it out and toss it. Now, I've put the notepad away. I carry an iPhone with Quickever installed. It opens instantly, ready for a note that may be saved to Evernote or trashed, depending upon what circumstances dictate. This is a new habit, a learning process for me. I find that I still grasp for the old paper notepad at first, out of long-established habit. But it's gone. Now I'm reaching for the phone.
  24. Hello, I am looking at scanning all my reciepts, tax stuff, etc. I have a flatbed scanner, but it is upstairs (I am in basement), and the Epson software is atrocious. I like the idea of a Doxie Go for travel too, easier to do my expenses while still in hotel, and that it could just sit on my desk without clutter. But the lack of duplex is not great, wifi built in would be nice, etc. I notice that the Doxie Go came out over two years ago. I am assuming that they must have an updated model in the works.Are there any rumours of this? ~Shea M.
  25. After several years working with Evernote and testing almost any system implementation from GTD to Action Method and etc. I finally developed something on top of Evernote using Workflowy and the principle of Bullet Journal. I am testing it for a while and it works great! Requirements: Evernote Account Evernote Moleskine Notebook Workflowy Account Getting familiar with Bullet Journal Basically, Workflowy works as a daily planner and project planner, Evernote as a content management and digital note-taking platform, and Moleskine as a analog note-taking platform. If you are getting interested start reading it in detail, I call it: Workflowy Journal
