  1. I experience an issue with the CaptureOnTouch software on Mac OS X: on scanning using the "Scan First" option, there is a window where scans can be rotated and more scans can be added. On the top, all pages are displayed as a miniatur-preview and those can be re-ordered and removed. Great, if there is multi-feed problem and one can scan this page again and move it to the correct position. On the other hand, CaptureOnTouch offers predefined jobs, such as Scan to Evernote. This is a great thing to speed up processing. Sadly, if I select those jobs, the page to rotate and add scans ist displayed again, the functions are available, however, the re-ordering of pages or removing of individual pages in the mini-previes on top is not available. I would deeply appreciate any advice
  2. I have been an Evernote user for some years but only used it now and then to store simple notes and for webclips. I'm now in the process of evaluating going paperless. I've been working on a scanner and automatic filing solution for storing directly in Evernote. Just when I was about to succeed in setting everything up Evernote was hacked, and I started to question if my idea of storing all mails and importan papers in Evernote was a good idea. Should I store "everything" there (apart from obvious things like pin-codes etc of course)? E.g. Birth certificates, wedding certificates, insurance, banking info etc? I'm looking for other peoples view on whether storing "everything" at Evernote (and searchable through OCR-feature) is a good idea. - Do people consider this a safe solution? - Do you limit what kind of papers are scanned & stored here? Do you also store locally at a local disk or do you store the most important locally on a disk and the rest on Evernote? - Is additional encryption of scanned files possible without disabling searchability? Would appreciate feedback on thoughts about this and how you use Evernote for going paperless. /BH
  3. This is my only snag on going fully paperless. I read a lot of papers for grad school and I keep them all in Evernote. In many of my classes, we have in-class discussions on some papers. Before Evernote, I would keep a copy of the paper open on my laptop and then take notes in my notebook. Though I do have a scanner, I'd like to start taking notes directly in Evernote. However, I've not found a good way to do this yet. Right now, what I do is create a new note with the paper as an attachment. I leave some empty lines at the top of the note for note taking. When discussions reference the paper, I have to scroll or search for the section to look at, then scroll back up to the top to continue taking notes. This is a huge workflow disruption and I often end up not getting the notes I want or skipping the references and just waiting for discussion to resume. Is there a good way to accomplish what I'd like to do?
  4. I am thinking of replacing my clunky old scanner (which is not duplex) with a fujitsu snapscan. There are 3 models and I was thinking of the S1500. I assume that I would not use the rack2filer software since I would be scanning directly into Evernote. If that's the case I would not need to get the "bundled package". I was wondering if others felt that S1500 was the best choice and if there is any directed advice about using it with Evernote. I suppose that one limitation of the Fujitsu is that it is not twain compliant but I'm not sure if that's a big obstacle or not. I do not need to scan thousands of documents at a time so I know that any of the 3 top models of Fujitsu snapscan would probably do fine, but I am leaning towards the best one available.
  5. I am fairly new to evernote and love the idea of going paperless. I think EN has a great future but what happens if we go paperless and EN goes away? Is this a concern?
  6. Hello! I am new to the Evernote forums as well as a brand new user of both EN and FileCenter. My goal is to completely digitize my personal and small business lives. For the way I like to do things, I think that if EN had nested stacks I would use it exclusively for my needs. Since it doesn't (currently) and I'm not wanting to try to replicate that feature using tags, I've decided to use FileCenter in conjunction with EN. Most of the documents I'll be dealing with can remain on my Windows local hard drive, but some I would like to have mobile access on my iPhone and iPad. I think what I'm hoping for some advice on would be how to have full access to all my information through FileCenter but have "some" of that information also available through EN for mobile access. I should also mention that I'm not interested in an expensive Cloud solution for access to ALL my data and that I've used DropBox before but really don't care for it. I really like Evernote, but just need help integrating EN with my usage of FileCenter. Can anyone offer some advice? Thank you! Marty
  7. We are switching to a high deductible health insurance plan starting in Jan 2013. I've looked all over the internet hoping to find that someone has created a good system for keeping track of everything in one place but haven't been able to find anything. I'm wondering if there is anyone using Evernote for this. If not, I think it would be a great idea to develop some guidelines for this subject. I know that many companies are moving towards these plans as healthcare costs continue to rise, so it's definitely something we'll be needing in the future. Thanks for any help you might be able to give me!!
  8. I have a ScanSnap S510M, and the major frustration with it is that the bundled version of Abbyy FineReader can only OCR one document at a time...even though the scanner can work much faster. So even though the scanner's ready for a second document, if I feed it before the OCR is done on the first, the second never gets OCRed. FineReader doesn't even know the second document exists. What I'm trying to do is setup a paperless workflow that renames my scans and categorizes them based on keywords in the PDF, and then files them appropriately in Evernote. I know Evernote will OCR them after import, but I don't think there's a way to create rules or smart sorting based on keyboard (please correct me if I'm wrong!) I know if they're OCRed prior to Evernote, then I can use Hazel (http://www.noodlesoft.com/hazel.php) to automatically rename and sort them, and hopefully send them to the correct Evernote notebooks. But getting them OCRed is a pain with FineReader, and the other OCR solutions I've found require too much hands-on intervention. I'd really like a solution where I press the button on the scanner for each document, and have searchable PDFs a few minutes later, with no additional input. Can anyone recommend an OCR app like that, or suggest other workflows that I haven't thought of? Thanks in advance. (ps: I did find this applescript which aims to fix my exact problem...but a current bug in OS X's folder actions support breaks it on my system: http://paperjammed.com/2010/01/04/automate-scansnap-ocr-process-on-your-mac-with-applescript-snow-leopard-edition/comment-page-1/#comment-183245 )
  9. I am embarking on a year long (2013) Paperless journey and have assembled all the tools (I think!) I will need to really get started. I have one lingering point of confusion I am hoping someone can help me out in this Fourm. I am currently using the Free version of Evernote and have found it great. I have also purchased the Doxie Go scanner. It is my understanding that Doxie Go performs OCR on all my documents and although they are saved as PDFs they can be searchable via text. However, I have read that in order to have searchable PDFs fon Evernote you need to upgrade to the Premium service. Obviously, I would like to not pay the extra money for Premium at this point. I am not ruling it out all together, and I assume if much of my life becomes documented in Evernote that will become a logical expense. However, at this point, since I am still working this all out, I don't want to rush into paying for something I don't need to. So what's the deal with searching for text for PDFs in Evernote? If your scanner produces a searchable file, is the Premium service unnecessary? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Tom
  10. Some of the documents that I scan are smaller than 8.5x11, W-2's for example. I've scanned using my ScanSnap S1500M using the autosize feature, where the scanner detects, crops and outputs the document as a PDF keeping it's original document size. The problem is when printing this special sized document, the document is printed blown up on an 8.5x11 sheet. On my Mac there are some printing features that change the output, so I can do this but it's an extra step. Where as when I scan these smaller sized documents to 8.5x11, the print output is correct without having to make print option adjustments, but a lot of white space exists in the document. How do you handle scanning documents smaller than 8.5x11?
  11. Folks, I really need help. I need a tool that will let us take a note (from Evernote) put annotations on it (pricing on a service ticket) and then save it back to Evernote without creating a duplicate note. I thought PDFpen might accomplish this but I don't see how I don't end up with a duplicate note. Thanks in advance for your thoughts.
  12. Hi All, In my bid to become as paperless as possible with Evernote being my storage base for information I have a scansnap 1300 at home in my study. However, if I need to scan something in the office or on the road, I have no choice but to either take the paperwork from one location to another or do the same with the scanner. In practice this works, but when on the road, you may not be able to bring the papers back. Or paperwork is taken home and then put to one side or is more easily forgotten. So I found this neat little product via Evernote's Trunk: http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2011/12/the-doxie-go-personal-and-portable-scanner/ For sale from Amazon and it seems to answer all my problems, allowing me to easily take the product around with me wherever I go. Unless on my cycle of course!! It is low cost for what it does so I have just ordered one and look forward to getting rid of even more paperwork that I permanently seem to be surrounded b Looking forward to having a play when it arrives! Best regards Chris
  13. I recently updated my blog with a fairly straightforward tip (http://www.techbarber.com/quick-evernote-tip-for-your-paperless-life/) I've been doing this since going "paperless", but I didn't really realize it until tonight. For the documents I'm going to scan, I like to keep two piles on my desk; one for documents that will make their way into Evernote, the other for documents that I deem to sensitive to sit in the cloud. I then plow through each pile using very few "profile switches" on my ScanSnap S1300. The separate piles allow me to scan much faster without having to toggle a new profile with each scan. It may be old news, and there may be versions of this system on steroids - but it works great for me!
  14. My students are using Evernote as their science notebook this year. At any time, they have the option of using a paper notebook and taking a photo of their written notes to place them in their Evernote notebook. Special education staff is insisting that I no longer use this in my classroom with my 7th and 8th grade students. I don't understand this since students have the option of using a paper notebook and the students in question say that they prefer using the electronic version, and are able to do so. Has anyone else used this with special needs students and ran into these difficulties? Any suggestions?
  15. So, I think you all will love this one. (oh, and BTW, sorry I haven't posted in a while, just haven't needed to) Recently, I've been doing tons of work at discogs.org, cataloging music releases and loving every minute of it. So, I got the bug of documenting things and learned more about the work of the Internet Archive.. Known best for their Wayback Machine, they are also in the business of archiving non-copyrighted materials. So, guess what I've been doing? I've been searching my house for old materials that are in the public domain and scanning them, page by page, and then uploading them in one big PDF to archive.org AND simultaneously uploading them to Evernote. Just another way that Evernote and the Internet Archive can help me, and all of us, and the world, AND future world citizens. Books that were previously not available on the internet, are now available to internet users WORLDWIDE and not only to them, but my future generations because I also cataloged in Evernote which they will get when I die.
  16. I want to go paperless, and buy a scanner that will enable scanning direct to Evernote. I'd strongly prefer to scan 'direct to the cloud' rather than having the scans go through my laptop each time. Which scanner should I buy? The ScanSnap S1300i looks good - but it seems to require connection to a laptop for all scans? Are there any duplex scanners which can send direct to Evernote without requiring a laptop? I assume that this is possible with any scanner which scan direct to an email address? Thanks Robin.
  17. Here's the problem: I am scanning a huge pile of documents (hundreds of pages) as "simplex" profile ie: one sided only. When this scan ends I have the option to either end the scan entirely or add some more pages to be scanned. If I end the scan it will generate a file and I'm done. However, what if I want to add 10 more pages to this scan but in a different profile ie: duplex, color etc? I would like to append these 10 to the huge scan that's just finished without having to scan them seperately and generate another file. Is there a way of changing snapscan's parameter's in "mid-scan" before the file is generated?
  18. I am a 4 time stroke survivor. I use Evernote as my electronic Memory Notebook, set up just like my paper Memory Notebook, because I have much difficulty writing, The notebook is in 7 parts: 1) Schedule 2) Calendar 3) To Do List 4) Notes 5) Strategies 6) How To's 7) Miscellaneous. I capture whiteboard notes in therapy by iPhone image and sync to my home computer to type up later. I have to carry it everywhere; by having it on my iPhone, it is much easier. But,. I keep the hardcopy updated and carry that as well at times too. I have extensive medical information from all the strokes, a plethora of prescription drugs, non-prescription drugs, lists of what each drug is and does, and have to update. Giving my medical history is a huge challenge esp. when I don't write well at all trying to fill out forms, etc. I want to convert all this information to a PDF format stored on a USB flashdrive, and have it easily updatable to carry with me. In case of emergency it can be plugged in and printed out all up-to-date. The form would have all the info necessary to provide correct history, meds, etc., not necessarily in the doctor or hosp form format, but they could glean the information from it and transcribe. How can I do this in a concise and simple form, automating as much as possible for people with little computer skills to still benefit from it? I do have computer skills, but because of the extensive strokes, my organizational and decision-making skills are lacking and requiring me to ask for assistance. There are many flash drive systems out there charging $$, but few that are update-able. How can we integrate Evernote to become the de facto standard to use by the majority of people to maintain their health records accurately and for emergencies? Thank you, Pops George C.

  19. For general information, I just bit the bullet, sold a family member and bought a ScanSnap. This after experimenting for some time with flatbed scanners and digital pictures of documents. I didn't have a document feeder on the original scanner(s), and getting reasonable quality digital pics of A4 and A3 documents involved me in building a RW copy frame with lights that quickly add a few degrees to the average temp around here, especially if you're diving in and out to replace sheets or change book or magazine pages between shots. So: long story short - paper conversion = much work, no fun. (Though I kept at it because Evernote was an organised and paper-free-ish light at the end of my sweaty tunnel.) I still had some paper to shift, so I bought a ScanSnap. Think differences between squinting and contact lenses, cheap headphones and live music; seriously - being able to load up to 50 pages, seeing it zip through the scanner at 20 pages/ minute and process itself into a reasonably small Evernote package are so awesome that.. I was minded to share it with you. More seriously I got from somewhere around here the directions to direct a ScanSnap output to an Evernote page, which replaced my first instinct to use ScanSnap's built-in "scan to a folder" option, and use that as my Evernote Input folder. The instructions I got worked quite well, but as a natural last resort, and after much use, I then Read The (Fujitsu) Manual - which includes a description of updating the ScanSnap Manager software. (Right-click icon, choose Help and Online Update). Duly updated, the ScanSnap Manager then offers me a new range of choices, including various standard "scan to" destinations including "Evernote Note" and "Evernote Document". Which I'm now using in preference to all others, because they work rather well. One thing I can't get out of SM is a version number, so I can't tell you when this was introduced; but if you have a ScanSnap without these options it would be worthwhile checking for online updates. Meanwhile Rock On Evernote! I'm getting closer by the day to that towel by the pool I promised myself at the start of this project.. (Health Warning: all the information here relates to the Windows version of ScanSnap software - can't speak for other OS's)
  20. I just got the Fujitsu Scansnap 1300 and Evernote on the Mac (Lion). I can't figure out how to tell the scanner to scan to a different notebook in Evernote. For some reason it's picked a particular notebook to scan to and I don't know why. I try highlighting the notebook I'd like for the scan to go to before I scan and it still doesn't work. I'm using the latest version of the Scansnap software. Thanks for any help in advance.
  21. I've been wanting to go paperless (mostly) for a few years now. Initially it seemed I'd have to spend at least $250 on a scanner with a sheet feeder and Evernote software, but the more I read it seems like you don't need specific software for Evernote if you can set up a "watch folder"? So I guess I'm wondering really if this is true or if the software for scanners that is specific to Evernote has any value add to it or if I can truly cross that off my list? Also, it seems like there's much more of a selection of scanners that have multi-sheet adf as part of an All-in-one printer/copier/scanner device. I actually have an All-in-One Epson but it's an older unit without ADF. It has a flatbed that I use right now for occasional scanning. But there seem to be a bunch out there for $100-150 or even less than $100. I know to some extent you get what you pay for, but since cost is definitely an issue with the budget I have, I'm wondering if there is anything that will work ok that is $100 or even less. One that I've seen is the PIXMA MX410. Some of these units state that they can do 2-sided printing, but don't specifically say 2-sided scanning, so I'm wonderin if I should just assume one implies the other? I think having one of these will actually motivate me to start my project of going paperless, as the hurdle of having to scan everything sheet by sheet is too much at this moment. Even with the convenience of a multi-sheet feeder, it's still going to take months getting my filing cabinet emtied out! :-/ Thanks for any words of advice and wisdom!
  22. Hi. I'm new to EN and I've been experimenting with it ever since I joined. I've heard this thing called OCR and tried to experiment it by taking snapshots of my notes, and using Camscanner. But it seems that it's not working. I'm not sure if my phone is the problem or I'm not a premium user. Using Samsung Galaxy S, Android version 2.2.2 Thank you for the replies.
  23. I'm investigating going paperless and I like the idea but I need some emotional help. Once the scan is completed and loaded into EN what does one do with the paper? Do you shred it and recycle? What if it is a receipt and the store requires the original for a return? Do you file the paper into a general box just in case it is needed? Bite the bullet and throw it away? Looking for everyones thoughts and ideas. Also along with this question is dedicating ones entire process to EN. Will EN be around for years and years? What happens when you are 3 years down the road and EN goes away. How will you have access to all of your data? Keep a copy of everything local? Thanks Neal105
  24. Hi,,,,I have been trying to take advantage of my Evernote Account.....I was thinking of loading my Technical Manuals into Evernote for all the various products I support. To explain better my folder structure on my PC where the PDF's are kept. Manuals\Server\HP\Proliant DL380 G8 - This has 5 manuals inside Manuals\Blade\HP\Proliant BL465 G7 - This has 3 manuals Manuals\Desktop\HP\8000 Elite - This has 4 manuals Could anyone offer me any guidance on how best to get these on Evernote in a structure that I can very quickly find things. Also these PDF's when opened in Adobe are searchable, can they be searched in Evernote? Any support would be appreciated
  25. What is the easiest way to scan documents to Evernote with Scan Snap? I've been scanning into the Scan Snap folder and copying and pasting into an EN notebook. Is there an easier way? Do you OCR the doc within the Scan Snap program, then copy it over? I tried to email to my EN email, but I'm not seeing it hit my account. Not sure how everone is getting their pdf's into EN. Any help would be appreciated!
