  1. I have just bought a ScanSnap S1300 and set up Evernote so that it scans directly into Evernote (used the instructions from Michael Hyett). The scanner is working fine for producing PDFs and storing in a folder but when its directed to Evernote I get the error message 'Failed to start up Evernote for Mac. Make sure that the selected application is installed correctly.' Has anyone any ideas how I can correct this? Thanks
  2. I’m a fan of Evernote and use it for everything from organizing notes to saving web clippings. One major use has been to store all of my product receipts (both scanned directly into Evernote and saved online receipts) that I want to keep for future reference. I find it easy to upload receipts (mostly large purchases like electronics and major appliances) and also like the receipt search functionality, but like most documents stored inside a folder structure, it has a big limitation. It’s impossible to spread all receipts in one view and get an overview of all of your products and use the information from inside the receipts (warranty dates, etc) proactively. So when I want to check my catalog of products and use the information from inside the receipts, I find myself missing the ‘index card’ view (think Pinterest’s boards) with all product information in one place. In an attempt to solve the above, we’ve developed a web application called Unioncy. In short, Unioncy is an appliance management platform that automatically builds a catalog of your purchases and stores all product documentation and information (manuals, receipts, purchase details, serial no., etc.) in one place in the cloud. On top of the catalog, sits a helpful set of features, like warranty and product recall tracking. We're now very excited about an integration with Evernote to offer a simple way to get more out of the receipts that we like to store in Evernote and automatically turn them into digital “product cards”. We’ve released an early version of Unioncy and we recognize that we are far from perfect, so it would be great to hear some feedback in order to try and shape the product in a way that the Evernote community finds useful. Also, any thoughts on how you would like to see the integration work between Unioncy and Evernote would be much appreciated. You can now create a beta account on http://www.unioncy.com/ to see how it works. If you would like to privately share feedback please email me at victor@unioncy.com Thanks!
  3. Hi guys, Looking at the cheapest scanner that will let me do automatic scanning and uploading to Evernote. Any ideas?
  4. Hello guys I've been lurking around here for the last couple of weeks, to help inform my thinking about taking a leap towards the whole paperless thing. And there's a remarkable collection of expertise in here, which I guess I shouldn't be surprised about! You've given me the confidence to get started - so though I might share my thoughts on the first steps. Please feel free to tell me where my thinking might be awry! timfg
  5. I've started using Penultimate in an effort to go paperless with my writing and blogging. What I do is have a Penultimate/Evernote window open on one side of the screen and a Word document or blog post on the other side so I can easily copy down what I've written. I have a giant notebook filled with writing that I would like to easily copy over. What's the best way, if there is one, I can scan the notebook and have it appear in Evernote in one note so I can easily copy what I've written into a computer file?
  6. A line in this article on ArsTechnica this morning caught my eye: ""My three main work tools are my iPhone, iPad, and the Moleskine [a paper notebook that integrates with Evernote's iOS app]," Burton said in a phone interview." http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2013/08/how-mobile-technology-created-a-workforce-that-never-stops-working/ Burton has a blog where he talks at more length about his digital workflow including his use of Evernote (http://perspectiveburton.com/tag/evernote/). Personally, I haven't yet incorporated Moleskine into my workflow. I quite like the idea, and I have a notebook, but somehow I always end up taking notes with a stylus and the iPad. A year into the Moleskine integration (launched about this time in 2012), I wonder how people are putting it to use.
  7. Hey Evernote Community, I am looking to go Paperless in the immediate future, and was wondering which portable scanner works best with Evernote. I have done some of my own research and keep being brought back to two options: Fujitsu ScanSnap S1100 Doxie GoIf you have a different suggestion, please explain why you choose that specific model and if possible, provide a link. I appreciate everybody's feedback - James R.
  8. I've recently went paperless with a Doxie go, an Eye-Fi card and Evernote. Quick question - I can send images straight to Evernote and save documents to readable .pdfs. But I want to send the readable .pdfs straight to Evernote. Any ideas?
  9. I have been trying to get more paperless this year... so far this has involved getting paper statements, scanning them into Evernote and then shredding the originals. I am now ready to move towards paperless billing statements... while it would be ideal if providers would have an option where they email you the actual statement (which could be sent directly to my evernote address) instead of sending a notification that a statement is ready to be downloaded... Until this becomes an option, I can live with logging in and downloading the statements. However, this has gotten me thinking whether the better option is to just leave the statements at the provider? Especially for utility bills like electric, phone, cable, etc... I have never once gone back and looked at a bill. If I need to see one, I can log in and look at it. For banks and credit cards I need to see how long they are available, but so long as it is a few years, not sure why I need them in Evernote. Thoughts?
  10. Hi all, Im using evernote to go paperless anytime soon. but the most important task for me in my small business is collecting receipts of credit card payments. my accountant needs these statements with all receipts connected to it. but these exists of scanned pdf's of receipts or paper invoices and clipped email notes. when i export these the clipped emails do not get exported well. What i currently do is. My statements are per month. so i made a tag "cc 09-2013" that stands for credit card september 2013. works amazingly well. i got everything from 03-2013 to 09-2013 in there already. CloudHQ is something i tried, but therefor it needs to be in a seperate notbook, and if needed i will do that but if there is a better solution that would be amazing.
  11. Since there was some discussion in some of the other threads about scanning/photographing paper to convert it to digital format, I thought I'd create a thread for it to consolidate the posts in one place. At home, I use the Canon imageFormula P-150 (Mac version) which has direct scanning into Evernote. It can scan 15 ppm and scans both sides of the page at once so no duplexer is needed. It is also small and portable which is nice. I've used it for scanning everything from post cards and receipts to publishing contracts and mortgage papers. Well worth the investment.
  12. I just got a Canon Imageformula P-215 which is advertised as being able to scan directly to Evernote. However, I use a Mac and as far as I can tell the Mac software is a "lite" version and I can't find any option for scanning directly to Evernote. Can anyone here confirm that this is indeed the case, or else provide instructions on how to do it? Thanks.
  13. With going paperless and reading many wonderful use cases for Evernote, I've also stumbled upon many different projects people are engaged in. One that interests me greatly is scanning books to PDF format. I have 600+ books that could be converted to PDF format to make the storage area needed for them smaller and to increase portability. A side note: the portability factor is probably the biggest driving factor to complete a book conversion project like this. Reading about the use of iPad from users such as GrumpyMonkey in these forums has spurned interest in possibly acquiring my own iPad. At the very least I want to be sure as much of my content is ready to be viewed on an iPad, so that I do not have to deal with the conversion of documents when I finally make the leap.Converting so many books of course is a huge undertaking and perhaps would be considered not very worthwhile by some. I like to tinker. So, this sort of project in my spare time seems fun. I enjoy learning new things. As a result I've delved deeper into the PDF standard and found PDF/A. There are many areas of law and commerce that require long term reliable storage of data, so the PDF/A standard was developed. PDF/A has become the standard for submitting legal documentation to courts. Essentially PDF/A limits the scope of useable PDF features and requires they be embedded into the file, so all the data needed to view the PDF is contained within it. For example links to fonts is prohibited. This prevents the possibility that a particular font be absent from a particular computer (either now or future), so that when the font link is invoked, the formatting of the file becomes altered. This doesn't happen with PDF/A. Instead the PDF/A file uses fonts within the file so formatting does not get altered. Some of the documents that get scanned into Evernote, such as utility bills, do not typically need to last decades. Perhaps having acces to them for up to seven years will suffice, since that would take care of tax needs in the US for example. In those cases PDF/A would not be needed. But what about keepsakes, such as scanned projects from your kids' early years or your family genealogy research? Perhaps you want to pass them to your future generations? PDF/A seems to be the way to store information for the long-term. Getting back to scanning my book collection, I've been thinking that since it's so labor intensive, that I would want to take the time to be sure it's done as good as I can get from the beginning. For all interested parties, here is a link to the book PDF/A in a Nutshell: Long-Term Archiving with PDF, which is put out by the PDF/A Competence Center of the PDF Association. http://www.pdfa.org/...-in-a-nutshell/ It contains background information into PDF, compares Microsoft's XPS format with PDF, describes the various levels of PDF/A and shows specifically how to convert or create PDF/A documents. Many screenshots abound. Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro is used (version 9 is similar) along with a few products from other vendors. Do you use PDF/A?
  14. I know this is not an Evernote issue as such, but as many of you guys have a Scansnap I wonder if anyone has run into this issue. Despite having deselected "Convert to searchable PDF" the program starts the text recognition process anyway. This happens on both mine and my wifes scanners. Please see attached our set-up under file options:
  15. My husband and I just retired and will be doing a lot of traveling in our rv. I want to keep a travel journal for our family and friends to keep track of us. i will set up a shared notebook in evernote, then give those interested the URL. I will post a single daily photo and a few comments, then give a link to a smugmug gallery for more photosnifnsomeone is interested. I will password protect both. I am currently keeping a paper 10-year diary, and would like to be able to set this up in s similar fashion. Is this possible? For instance, I would like to look back to see what we were doing on the same date for the last five years. This will be my first attempt at something like this, so any suggestions would be appreciated. I love notability, but since it does not link to evernote., I will be trying penultimate instead. We are in the second day of this great adventure, so I need to get this started! Thanks!
  16. I have been using Evernote in a very casual manner for a couple of years and now want to put it to work. I just got a ScanSnap and scan directly to Evernote. Right now every scanned page comes in as a separate note. If I am scanning a three page document, how do I get it to be a single note in Evernote? Thanks
  17. HI All, Just scanned in some docs via the S1300 and noticed they have arrived into Evernote as jpegs, even though my settings are for pdf's! Checking the Scansnap folder on my computer I see the scanned docs are pdf's in there. Very odd. Can anyone advise what if anything I am doing wrong? Many thanks as always for your help. Best regards Chri
  18. Hi All, I am a huge fan of evernote and I am keen to go completerly paperless by scanning to a file any paper I do get. However I am struggling to find an optimal DPI and image format to scan and upload my bills / important papers to evernote. So far I have tried JPG and PNG at 600dpi with file sizes 1-10 and 10-40mb respectively using irfanview because I can specify where to scan each file and they are autonumbered. My problem is if evernote is to be used effectively everything should be stored in evernote - to increase the power of its search. Can anyone suggest a better option as I am only on a free account and uploading even the JPG files will use my 60mb upload limit very very quickly! Any help much appreciated. Josh.
  19. I'd like to start scanning my receipts, especially my business-related ones. The problem is that my business occasionally generates receipts whose lengths are best measured in feet when I go out to the post office and mail off a bunch of books from a successful Kickstarter, and most of these little scan-to-cloud things seem to have maximum lengths that are not much more than one and a half feet. I've thought of using some of the phone receipt capturers but those things require a lot of user interaction. I'm lazy, if the initial import process is any more complicated that "put receipt in scanner, push button, shred receipt because now it's in Evernote" I will never get around to doing anything. Any suggestions, or am I looking for something that just doesn't exist right now?
  20. In a couple of other posts I've talked about my grand mission to get my accumulated personal journals/calendars into Evernote. Very briefly, I'm 54 and have journals/diaries/calendars going back at least 40 years (with scattered pieces of paper from earlier years). I've been transferring all this stuff to Evernote, making one note for each day and attaching relevant scans of paper stuff. Since I've said publicly that my goal was to be finished by the end of 2012, I wanted to update everyone on my progress. The bad news is that I didn't meet my deadline. The good news is that I only have 34 more months to enter, from 1980-1983. Everything else in my personal history is in Evernote, in 12,961 notes individual notes. I can transfer about half a month of journals/calendars at a sitting now, so I figure it'll be another couple of real-world months before I'm completely finished. So my new deadline is Spring 2013. Meanwhile, I'm amazing my friends and coworkers by pulling up scans of 25-year-old meeting notes, ticket stubs, and the like. I love Evernote.
  21. Wanting to go paperless. Saw Doxie, like the price, but Fujitsu gets more ratings and has more users it seems. Has anyone done a comparison?
  22. I just bought an IRIScan Anywhere 3 and am trying to use the accompanied Readiris 14 for Mac to turn the JPG scans into PDF's (or DOCX's) and then save them to evernote. However, they do end up in evernote, but the body of the note contains 'null' and no PDF or DOCX. Anyone experiencing the same problem? I do love the scanner, but I wish readiris where doing a better job. Anyone using beter software in combination with the IRIScan Anywhere 3 and evernote? Thanks in advance. Marc
  23. I was using a canon scanner on my windows PC to scan to evernote. I moved to IMAC and am out of USB ports. I am looking at using a hub but noticed the new scansnap iX500 can scan to its ios app and you can move the pdf to Evernote. Is anyone doing this, pro's and con's?
  24. I have used a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500m on my iMac for the last year to get organized. I have recently started to try to incorporate keywords into the pdfs I scan to be able to better organize them. Has anyone had any luck with the highlighting function of the ScanSnap to create keywords? I have tried everything, different colors, all the settings, and nothing will work. Occasionally a keyword will come through but it is around 10% of the time. Does anyone know of any other forums where I could get ScanSnap help? Thanks
