  1. I'm a big fan of Evernote in general and I'm using the Premium version of Evernote for some time now with a Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500. I had great dreams of using the Evernote 'searchable PDF' option to scan in all my paper and find stuff using text search when needed. But, despite numerous promises, Evernote have failed to deliver a PDF search that reliably highlights the searched text in the search results. Usually I end up with one result (the first, as a rule) with correctly highlighted text, and the rest of the list either have no highlighted results, or can have all kinds of random highlight spots, often on totally blank areas. Evernote have been aware of this problem for many months now, but it has not been addressed in any of their updates. I'm very disappointed and frustrated by this 'Evernote Premium' behaviour.
  2. 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?
  3. I have been using Evernote for 2 months - its great so far, except: It doesn't seem like it is doing handwriting recognition on scanned documents (which are uploaded as PDFs). I was wondering: is this not working because I am not paying for premium (yet), so I don't get searching in PDFs? I was hoping to try this out before I pay for premium (chicken and egg here: I am only interested in premium if it is good at letting me search my hand-written notes). Or is there some other explanation (like, handwriting recognition doesn't work in PDFs, or only works from photographs, or ...) Thanks! mike
  4. I wrote a detailed blog post on how I trimmed down my wallet with Evernote and NFC (using the Touchanote app on my Android phone). Essentially, all of the stuff that you normally carry around in your wallet, that requires no physical item, you scan into Evernote then link them all to an NFC tag via Touchanote. The NFC tag goes in your wallet for instant access. Here's the article in case anyone is interested: http://michaelkizer....te-and-NFC.aspx
  5. 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
  6. Is there a reason why my Adobe acrobat X (which came with the Fujitsu S1500 scanner) does not recognize the scanner? When I select "Create" on a PDF document and then select "PDF from Scanner" it does not recognize that a scanner is connected. I get an error message saying that no scanner is connected or recognized. I have even gone within the Fujitsu software settings and enabled Adobe Acrobat in the Standard settings, but that doesn't work either. I don't find it a huge limitation since I can always create a pdf from any document I scan and then open that with Acrobat. However, if I'm already in acrobat and editing a pdf I can't simply scan in another pdf to attach directly from the scanner.
  7. I read the article "Creating a mood board with Evernote -- part of Evernote's Creative Series" by Julie Gornoll and thought it would be very useful for me to do. Especially since I have multiple projects and am using Evernote at work and home on multiple devices. I wanted to know if anyone could tell me how Julie arranged the images she did in the picture below (from Julie's article)? The comments below or the article never specified on how she overlapped the pictures and other items. Any help is greatly appreciated!
  8. 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
  9. 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.
  10. Hi, I'm fairly new to Evernote, but so many people I know are using it so it's time to join the club. I was curious has anyone scanned in their entire library of books yet? I was wondering if anyone had any tips on scanning their entire library of books and if they regret doing it or feel that it's better or not. I probably have about 100 books and I feel it's time to go all digital. I've been trying to create a paperless lifestyle and Evernote seems very awesome for this. Many people on here seem like they've been looking into this for a while. I scanned some old books at this place http://1dollarscan.com/ and was considering doing them all there. Any tips are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
  11. 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
  12. 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.
  13. I recently made a comment in a thread about putting user manuals into Evernote. The comment generated a lot of response, including a recommendation to start a new thread. This is it. I've quoted the original comment below. There are a bunch of ways to use QR codes to enable going paperless with Evernote. You need a device with a camera, a website to generate QR codes, and a printer. Ideally, a label printer, since you'll be sticking the codes on things. QR codes are also useful for ordinary notes. You can even include the QR code to the note in the note itself. Why would you want to do this? Well, suppose you have something you want to stick on the fridge (I'm going to China tomorrow, and my itinerary is going up there). A QR code to the note itself means my itinerary is there, but if there are any updates (including those I make while I'm in China) the note will contain them, and my family can easily check just by pointing a phone at the note. This is very useful for anything volatile for which you still need a paper copy. One reason I would really like "evernote://" style URLs to notebooks or searches is because I could think of a lot of things to do with them using QR codes.
  14. 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.
  15. I recently purchased a ScanSnap S1300 scanner. I've been pretty happy with it so far but I've found the profile setup to be really finnicky and confusing. The result is that it usually takes me 2 tries to get something to scan successfully and to go where I want it to go! I tried out of the gate to have just a couple of profiles; one for Evernote and one for scanning to a file on my desktop. This worked for the most part, but I had the duplex scanning turned on and I found the "automatic page removal" didn't work so well. Problems would often arise when scanning a document that I had scribbled on or that had a minor mark somewhere on the back. Instead of one page I'd get the page I wanted and a page with my one note scratch on the back. I now have several profiles setup (Evernote Single Sided PDF, Evernote Double Sided PDF, Evernote Single Sided Image, Evernote Double Sided Image etc etc etc). Am I missing something here? I'm also confused by the fact the scanner creates a file somewhere, even if you set it to scan to Evernote. I'm a pretty tech-savvy guy. In fact, I'm a computer programmer. Something about this software just confuses me though. And why do I even need to scan anything "directly to Evernote?" If it's going to create a file somewhere anyway, why not just scan to file in the "automatically add to evernote" folder you can setup in the EN software?
  16. I need to replace my all in one printer and after becoming an Evernote user last year I have seen information about ENs relationship with ScanSnap. From what I can gather the only real advantage of this relationship is that ScanSnap comes preconfigued with a one touch EN upload. It appears that you can do the same with software such as HP but it does take some manual configuration. Am I understanding correctly? All things considered equal, althougth I understand they are not, is there any real advantage to buying a ScanSnap scanner based on just the built in EN capabilities? I am trying to understand how important or helpful this feature is and if it should have any bearing on my decision as it relates to a new printer\scanner. Mike
  17. Hello, I'm looking for some Mac software that will automatically split a pdf based on barcode/splitter sheets. I would like to use the very fast scanner at work to scan all my pre-sorted documents in one go and then split the PDF afterwards. I've searched and searched without luck. Just wondered if anyone had any suggestions? Thanks, Scott
  18. 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
  19. I've been reading all the posts about best scanners that scan directly to Evernote (sounds like lots of people are fans of the ScanSnap by Fujitsu), and I'm leaning that way, but was wondering if there's another scanner out there that can accommodate unusual documents. I scan documents, receipts, photos like most people, but I also often get drawings my kids make. I keep some originals, but most I want to scan and toss. We just don't have a big enough house to store it all. Those are typically sized funny. I suppose a flatbed scanner would work, or maybe one of those camera contraptions. I am open to suggestions. (Oh, and I have a birthday coming up, so my family wants to get me a scanner and other goodies.) Thanks!

  21. I'm a computer service tech. I'd love to move to electronic worksheets through EN. The sheets would contain basic info. Customer info / date and time of service / and a work log. I also like to have a signature field. Does such a template exist? Thanks!
  22. Hi All! I've been using EN for over a year and LOVE it! But, I would still consider myself a newbie and not using it to its full potential. I'm big into organizing my files....LOTS of folders and subfolders on my hard drive, so I can easily find anything I need. I also have a pretty good organizational system on EN. But here's my issue: Right now, I scan a document, say my son's medical lab results. I store that .pdf in a folder on my computer's hard drive. Then I attach it to a note in EN so that it is always with me. And, in my quest to now go paperless, I will be scanning additional important documents (like bills) and less important documents (like receipts). The quesion is do I continue to save to my computer and then also put into EN? Do I only have them in EN? I'm afraid to only have them in EN because it may not have the longevity of my local storage....then again, it may have more. And, can I pull them out of EN and save locally for the long haul, saving space in EN (e.g. 2014 receipts would get archived when I close out the 2014 year). I feel like I'm in a dizzy nightmare of where/how to organize all this stuff and I'm double/triple saving files which may or may not be necessary. I've searched the forum and have found a few notes on the same, but am looking for additional guidance from the EN geniuses out there! Thanks so much!
  23. So started using Evernote business a few months ago in my company. Things are working great. Now I want to hire a company to go back through our paper company files and start scanning them. I wonder if anyone might have some experience with this and be willing to share some advise? I wonder if I can have a company just scan them into PDF's and that would work for making the documents searchable if I import them into Evernote. Please let me know your thoughts.
  24. Awhile back I wrote this guest post over at www.yourway.net, it seemed to help a lot of people so I thought I would post it here as well. http://tech.yourway....age-your-chaos/. By the way if you need a little more guidance check out "A Mom's Guide to Evernote". Evernote is a fantastic tech tool that can help you get a grip on all the loose ends in your life. You simply install it on your computer and smartphone, and it will quickly develop into your digital file cabinet. Below, I have listed 7 examples of ways I use Evernote in my everyday life. Shot Records It is always at the most random and inconvenient times I get caught needing one of my kids shot records. With my records saved electronically their shot records are with me wherever I go. Babysitting File It seems that every time we have a babysitter planned that it is total chaos beforehand. Keeping a babysitting file on hand with the bedtime routine and emergency information makes it simple to get out the door. I just email over the info to the babysitter. This is especially handy in the event of an emergency. Vacation Planning Planning a vacation for a family is no simple task. Finding a place to stay, making travel plans and keeping track of the paperwork. Not to mention the work to get everyone out the door. I keep all my lists with everything we need to get packed in Evernote. It is so easy to share notes. I can send them over to my husband too. Honey Do List Family life is pretty busy, but it doesn’t stop those nagging tasks from needing to get done. Weekends in our house get pretty crammed. So, when there is time to get things accomplished, it is easiest to pull out my on-going “honey do” list. Always having this information it makes our trips to Lowes, Target and grocery store much more efficient. Home/Property Management Managing your home or multiple homes is a lot of work. However, there is massive amounts of time to be saved by tracking all your home information through a paperless system. You can put warranty info, appliance info, leases, paperwork, pictures, and repair contacts all in Evernote. This allows you to easily and promptly deal with any home situation that occurs. Kids’ Artwork I love all the awesome artwork and projects that my kids bring home from school, however, I can’t stand all the clutter of the paper. I save the absolute best of the best. The rest I snap a photo of, save in Evernote and throw it away guilt free. Kids’ Activities Schedules Keeping up with the back and forth of all the kids is exhausting. School schedules, sports information are all saved in Evernote. That way no matter where I am I can reference these events that we need to work around. If you would like to learn more information on getting up and running with Evernote and organizing everything within, check out my ebook, Evernote for Moms. It is a quick and easy read designed to get you started in one afternoon.
  25. Hi all I've been an avid Evernote user for the last 3 years and have been helping family and friends increase productivity using cloud apps for much of that time. A colleague and I are seeking crowd-funds to publish an e-book about using cloud apps to improve personal and professional productivity. It is called Out of the Past, Into the Cloud. It features quite a few cloud apps, including Evernote. If you're interested to hear about the motivation for and to check out the chapter titles, head over to http://www.pozible.com/intothecloud.
