  1. This is actually I post I had in a thread on the MAC side -but my need it WIndows based so figured I could try to drum up some action here .... I like to Scan to PDF from my Fujitsu ScanSnap to Evernote - But if I go directly my PDFs aqre rotated wrong Since many of my documents do NOT get rotated correctly (have other languages) To me this is a crucial need. At this moment what I do is I use Scansnap into either FIleCenter or PaperPort - rotate in that program and save .... and then move the file into Evernote - that is just so silly ..... and yes I need to be able to rotate individual sheets not just the whole pdf .... Pdf page Rotation needs to be a top new feature. I prefer it "at the time of scan i.e. from scansnap to evernote - but if I need to do it in Evernote I guess thats Ok too Others agree? Allen
  2. I need to convert german into english automatically when I scan the documents. Is that possible to do as auto setting with scansnap+evernote or scansnap+google-docs?
  3. When scanning using my scansnap 1300 creating a PDF, is there a way to specify what NOTEBOOK the Note ends up in?? Right now the note always ends up the whatever notebook I'm looking at in Evernote at the time of the scan so they can end up scattered about and are a real pain to find. The note does NOT go to my default notebook for some reason and I can't see anyplace in the Scansnap software to specify the destination notebook Thanks Scott
  4. Hi All I am going to buy a scansnap ix500. My plan is to become paperless and archive all important docs. I have been reading that if I use Scansnap to create PDF files with OCR then Evernote will not ocr the documents, but will use the ocr embedded into the pdf, correct? Is there a sample workflow and set of tools that you would recommend for my ideal scenario: 1. I want to scan stuff from iMac using Scansnap ix500 and have it automatically added to my default inbox in Evernote (have premium account). 2. In parallel, I wanted to have the PDF added to a document management system and a copy of the PDF stored on my NAS server QUESTIONS: Is there a benefit to keeping a copy of the PDF on my NAS? Is it better to use Scansnap software to OCR or let Evernote OCR it? Is there any benefit to having paperport or other DMS or can evernote do it all?
  5. I am using Scansnap with Evernote and it working really well. However, I have a few questions and I am hoping someone can enlighten me. 1. What is the difference between Scan to Evernote (Note) and Scan to Evernote (Document) in the Scansnap Manager tool? 2. If I scan two pages, I get two separate notes in Evernote. How do I avoid this? 3. What do I need to do to get the PDF OCR'ed? Thanks in advance!
  6. I have just bought a Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 and I know many user here have the same scanner. I can get it to scan each side of paper as a single PDF document but how do I set it up to scan each piece of paper as a single document? This would mean that a double sided page would end up as a single two-page PDF document whilst single sided page would end up as a single one-page document. It's starting to look like this isn't possible. Any ideas? Thanks!
  7. Hi, I'm a fairly new user of Evernote and managed to go almost completely paperless with a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500 in two months. I've been having some issues in setting up a workflow which works for me because I had problems with documents being imported multiple times or not at all. With a bit of testing and the help of Evernote support I now have a workflow which uses minimal amounts of input or time from me and I'd like to share it. Mainly because in my quest to find answers to my problems, I saw numerous postings of people having the same problems. My workflow looks like this: - Scan Document. - OCR document with external (not ScanSnap's built-in) ABBYY FineReader software. - Move OCR'ed document to a folder structure per month (e.g. c:\administration\2013\05). - Let Evernote import the document.The reason I use the external OCR software is that I want to have all my OCR'ed documents stored locally and the Dutch language isn't supported by the ScanSnap software. I use DropIt (http://dropit.sourceforge.net) to watch a specific folder and move my OCR'ed pdf files to the folder/subfolder structure where Evernote picks it up (folder: c:\administration\2013\, sub-folders: yes, source: keep). The problem I had in the beginning was that sometimes documents where imported multiple times or not at all. It all traced back to the Archive file attribute. When checked, Evernote sees the document as ready for import and clears the attribute after it is imported. When OCR'ing documents, most of the time these programs use a temporary file. If this temp file is saved in one of the Evernote import folders, it is possible that these are imported during the OCR process which leads to two files. Another thing I saw happening was when the archive attribute couldn't be reset by Evernote, probably because the OCR process locked the file, leading to multiple imported files. The issue I had when none of the files where imported was because of the program I used cleared the Archive file attribute when moving, so Evernote didn't import it. Maybe a bit overkill, but in more detail this is what happens now: Scan document to file: c:\temp\201305301.pdf (ScanSnap) OCR document to file: c:\temp\201305301_OCR.pdf (ABBYY FineReader) Archive attribute: checked (ABBYY FineReader) Watch for files ending in '_OCR.pdf' in c:\temp\ (DropIt) Move document to file: c:\administration\2013\05\201305301_OCR.pdf (DropIt) Import (Evernote) Archive attribute: unchecked (Evernote)I hope this helps someone!
  8. I am having a problem with my ScanSnap application moving documents into Evernote. I have it set up so my scanner goes into a folder in the ScanSnap organizer. I look through the documents, delete, etc. until I have what I want to upload. ScanSnap is scanning in a batch as separate pages. When I am ready, I select the batch and move it to the ABBYY to Evernote folder. The program goes through the upload routine, but when I look in Evernote, I only see the first page of numerous pages. Can anyone help me figure this out? Leslie
  9. Hello, I recently purchased a Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500. I have been having issues with scanning multiple page documents to Evernote. Generally, 1 page documents upload to Evernote as expected; however, multipage documents result in the dreaded "Failed to startup Evernote for Mac" error. I have followed two suggestions posted elsewhere in the forums about this topic. I have reinstalled both Evernote (direct from evernote.com) and the ScanSnap software. The save location for ScanSnap was preset to a place within my Pictures folder. Does anyone have a suggestion? I am feeling foolish for spending the money for the scanner. Thanks.
  10. I've recently begun using the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1500 scanner which includes the option to 'Scan directly to Evernote'. I'm having some problems with my Evernote PDF text searches. These are standard personal letters, documents, and stuff scanned with 'Scan Directly to Evernote' and I have deselected the Fujitsu ScanSnap option to 'create a searchable PDF', leaving it to Evernote to do the OCR. Scanning is fine and the scanned documents appear in Evernote, and a short time later are 'searchable PDFs'. I've checked some of these by saving them and almost all the text is OCR'd fine. But when I 'Search' Evernote on my Mac for specific text that I know is in some of those scanned documents, Evernote usually highlights the 'Search' word(s) in White against a 'Grey' document background on the first document in the list. But the rest of the documents will usually show just some empty white boxes, often at the end of the document. The 'found' documents all seem to be valid results containing the 'Search' criteria. Evernote does not seem to know where the 'Search' words are in the other documents. I'm using Evernote 3.0.6 on my iMac and Mac Pro (10.7.3) and all software is up-to-date. Anyone else with this issue, or even better, with a solution? Thanks.
  11. What is the best scanner to digitize 10,000 photos? Want to upload some to Evernote as well. Does anyone use Evernote to back up photos in conjunction with another photo app?
  12. Just installed the latest Evernote update and now ScanSnap scanner no longer scans directly into Evernote. Is anyone else experiencing this?
  13. Hello EN Community, (Sorry this post is so long and detailed) I am new to EN and I therefore have many questions. I've found many answers to individual questions in the forums, but I am having a hard time piecing all of the info together so I can determine how to setup the optimal EN ecosystem for my purposes. I have ascertained from the forums that it’s best to figure out as much strategy as possible before I purchase hardware/software and dive head-first into EN, or else I may have many regrets and may have to go back and redo a bunch of work as well. So I’m here for a ton of advice across the board. My questions involve the interaction between all of these areas: 1. Scanning in/uploading lecture notes/documents 2. Organizing them into a highly searchable database 3. Quickly accessing this database (primarily via a tablet device) 4. Quickly adding in new notes (preferably a mix of handwritten/recorded notes via tablet) First some background: I’m a pharmacy student who is about to complete years-worth of college classes this May and embark on rotations this August. These rotations will be in a hospital setting and will require me to take my knowledge and quickly apply it on the go (such as quickly answering drug info/therapy questions during rounds with the medical team), as well as learn many new things (and hopefully document them via notes, recordings, etc). So my goal is to have technology and EN on my side during this whole, demanding process. Here’s an example of my perfect hypothetical situation involving EN: While rounding, the doctors are discussing a patient’s case. Before we left for rounds I quickly reviewed the cases, used my tablet to browse relevant lecture notes and medical resources, and wrote some basic notes to myself. While making the rounds I have medical reference apps, a couple relevant lecture note sets, searchable PDFs (such as treatment guidelines) open in the background and I am able to seamlessly switch between them and note taking, while possibly even recording the team’s discussion. If they turn to me with a drug info question, I have hopefully been able to stay a step ahead of them and have either looked up the relevant info or am able to do so and provide an answer in a timely manner. Of course, all while jotting down notes in EN. After rounds I am able to use EN, Skitch, etc. to compile all of this into a note that I can review/edit later, as well as search my notebooks for more in-depth follow-up drug info answers for my preceptor. This may seem out of reach, but I want to find a way to get as close to obtaining it as possible, and I promise you that there are many medical and business professionals who are looking to EN for a slight variation of the same purposes. I’m also confident that there are medical/professional EN users who have iPads or Android tablets and are able to offer advice on their personal strategy to accomplish this. So please, do share your experiences with the EN community! #1 & 2: Uploading/Organizing: During the next few months before I start rotations I want to become a premium member and take all of the relevant lecture notes from the past few years and scan/upload them into EN into a well-organized and VERY SEARCHABLE database. My strategy at the moment to accomplish this is to purchase a Fujitsu Scansnap scanner (I’m leaning toward the s1500 or s1300i). Most of my notes are printed out PDF/Word/Powerpoint documents that have been marked up with multicolored handwritten notes and highlighting. I also have some digital searchable and nonsearchable PDFs, many with sticky-note comments on them, but preserving these sticky-notes is not as important as the handwritten notes. So for this uploading/organizing goal I want advice on how to best accomplish this feat in a manner where the database is extremely easy to search, ideally offline using a tablet device. My questions are: Is Scansnap the way to go? Should I upload everything directly to EN as searchable PDFs, JPEGs, or something else? (I know EN uses different OCR strategies for text vs. handwriting) Should I use Scansnap’s software to OCR the documents first and then move them to EN? Since the Scansnap s1500 comes with Adobe Acrobat (Version 9 Standard, I believe), and the cheaper s1300i doesn't, is there a reason I should spend the extra cash (think starving college student) in order to get Acrobat for my purposes? I also want to make these notebooks shareable with some classmates, but I guess that’s a whole different discussion. #3 & 4: Accessing notes: I plan to purchase a tablet for my rotations. This is where the bulk of my questions and uncertainty lies. Ideally I want this device to serve three main functions: 1) Be a powerful mobile drug/medical information database. 2) Be an excellent tool for quickly accessing lecture notes and saved documents on the go. 3) Be a great tool for taking quick handwritten/recorded notes while multitasking on the go. I also will have occasional access to desktop/laptop computers for more in-depth research and document creation, but possibly not very often until I get home in the evenings. Also, I should have decent WiFi coverage, but I'm not taking this for granted, and the more I can store offline, the better. At this time I am leaning toward a small Android tablet over the iPad Mini (any full-sized tablet is too large to be practical), but I am very unsure. The most intriguing device is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 that is scheduled to be released at Mobile World Congress at the end of this month. It’s basically a smaller Galaxy Note 10.1, so for the purposes of this discussion in regards to apps and compatibility, just think of it as Galaxy Note 10.1 vs iPad. The main reason I’m leaning toward the Droid is the hardware, mainly the pressure-sensitive stylus. But also it has expandable storage (mini SD card), is a little cheaper and has some cool multitasking features such as split-screen apps. But I have many concerns about Droid tablets mainly just because of the app selection. The iPad is miles ahead in this arena, but the problem is the awful lack of practicality for quickly handwriting notes on a capacitive screen (think finger-painting) and limited storage unless you pay tons of money. FYI, I also have an iPhone, which I love (as a phone, but it’s not practical for these demands) and have never owned an Android product. Taking into account that the Apple is far superior to Android when it come to drug/medical info apps (but I believe I can get by with the growing Android medical app selection, plus utilizing my iPhone if I have to), which tablet should I buy from an Evernote perspective? If the iPad had a pressure-sensitive stylus it would be a no-brainer, but I just have zero confidence in its ability to replace paper and pen for efficient note taking; maybe I’m overly skeptical of the iPad's multitasking and note-taking ability. However, I’m also skeptical that the Android market has apps available (or will by August) that utilize its superior content creation hardware (pressure-sensitive stylus) to do things like fully replace paper and pen while multitasking with great medical resources and incorporating it all into a database like EN. I know I've asked a ton, and I know that some of these individual topics have been addressed elsewhere, but please provide your best recommendation for how I can setup the optimal EN ecosystem for my for all of my purposes. Keep in mind that the uploading/organizing stage should ideally take place soon, but I don't need to purchase a tablet until mid-late summer. I know many others who are interested in doing the exact same thing. Thanks! *Edit: Maybe this is a good option? Any thoughts? Pressure sensitivity for Penultimate or Evernote iPad app to utilize this please!!! *Another edit: I guess maybe pressure sensitivity isn't as important for note-taking as having a true digitizer stylus. That's probably what makes writing with the Galaxy s-pen so good, the fact that's its a digitizer, not the pressure sensitivity...

  14. Hi Everyone, I took the plunge and got the Fujitsu ScanSnap S1300i. I absolutely love it, but have found one flaw with how it works with Evernote. Let's say I have a multi-page doc that I'm scanning in. It's in order (1, 2, 3, 4 etc). When I scan it in the PDF that is made is in the right order but when it goes in to Evernote the first one goes in first and is at the bottom of the scans. So when I go to merge them into one document in Evernote the first page is the last page. Is there an easy way of reordering the pages so that the first is the first and so on? Please let me know! -Seth
  15. Had to get a new computer..with old one the following occured: 1. Documents into scanner 2. PDF to Desktop of computer in "scanSnap Documents" folder 3. PDF to evernote and ability to rename PDF file Automatially with me doing nothing. I cannot figure out how to set it up this way again. I get the items scanned, and they show up in evernote, but not in PDF that I can rename and edit. Any ideas?? Thanks.
  16. I'm using a Fujitsu Scansnap S1500 to scan documents into Evernote using OCR. Recently, I noticed when using search on the Windows Desktop Client that it is not indexing text in some of the PDFs, although the Web Client search does index the same text. Anyone else experiencing this or know of a fix? I raised a bug ticket on it but it just got closed with a standard "Bugs related to this ticket, if any, are on file with the engineering team and their fixes will be incorporated into upcoming releases." reply.
  17. Hi, I have noticed that when I do my first scan it appears in Evernote as a blank note with an empty attachment that can't be opened. When I rescan it works correctly and for all subsequent scans until I shut down the scanner again. Strangely the Snapscan creates in on the hard drive rather than in Evernote seems to be OK. I am using OS X Mountain Lion, Evernote 5.0.4, Scansnap 1500m, Scansnap Manager 3.2.62.1002. The Scansnap manager is set to scan to pdf. Many thanks for any advice. Michael
  18. I have scoured the internet for the proper setup and feel I have it right but despite that I get two notes for every scan when I try to use a batch OCR approach. Here are the basics I have set: 1. ScanSnap Profile: - Application: "ABBYY Scan to Searchable PDF" - Image saving folder: A local folder that is designated an import folder for Evernote - Scanning: Auto/Auto/Duplex/Continue - File Option: PDF - No OCR selected 2. ABBYY 4.1 Settings - General Options: "Delete scanned images after recognition selected" - Scan to Searchable PDF: "Text under the page image", Medium/Automatic When I scan in something I get one searchable PDF in the watch folder but two notes in EN. It appears to me as if Evernote grabs the original scan the seconed it hits the watch folder, but Abbyy begins processing it for OCR, finishes, deletes the original and replaces it with the searchable one which triggers Evernote to do second import. This exact batch setup is recommended several places in different articles I have read. It's weird that it seems as if no one else is having this problem or not many people are using this technique. I did find one reference to batch Abbyy OCR'ing to a separate folder then occasionally manually moving files from there to the EN watch folder. I would prefer to work out the problem then to messing around with manually moving files around. If I don't use Abbyy batch OCR how else would you recommend scanning in reams of documents. I really want an automatic process approach otherwise it is going to be way to much effort to get mountain of paperwork scanned in. Thanks for any suggestions or help.

  19. When I scan a document to file or email with the ScanSnap the file is named as it should with the date and serial number. When I scan a document to evernote the file is not name with date but the serial number at the end does work as it should. Is this a bug or can I change the settings so it works? I've attached a .png image.
  20. Hi there, For some reason, Scansnap lost the ability to import items directly into Evernote with the latest Evernote update I made a few weeks ago. Has anyone else had this problem? How do I fix it? (This is Windows, not Mac.) Thanks, Jamie
  21. I am contemplating purchasing a ScanSnap scanner and I am trying to determine whether it is possible to use one scanner (and one computer) to add documents to more than one Evernote user's account. In other words, where I want to scan a document to my account, and another document to my wife's account. Is this possible?
  22. I am looking for a sheet-fed document scanner to use with Evernote and it looks like the S1300 would be perfect for me. However, for the amount of scanning I do it's just too expensive. I have found several offers for the older and much more affordable S300 model but I can't seem to find any significant differences between the two: http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/scansnap/s300.html http://www.fujitsu.com/us/services/computing/peripherals/scanners/scansnap/s1300.html Has anyone got any experience of both of these? If so, is there much of a difference between them? I assume any difference may be in real-world use rather than in technical specs. Thanks!
  23. Sorry if this has been covered previously in the forums, but I couldn't find it... I scan with my scansnap (with the OCR setting on) into a local folder that is imported into my Evernote default folder. My problem is that two copies show up, and I can't figure out why. Thanks is advance! Cindy
  24. I am running the latest version of Evernote (3.3.0) and I use a Fujitsu ScanSnap S510M scanner. I have a profile set up in the scanning software to scan directly to Evernote, which has worked perfectly until just recently. Now, the scanner does its thing, opens Evernote, and.... nothing. The PDF I created does not clip to a new note. I have changed nothing, except for the minor OS upgrade to Mountain Lion. Anyone else running into this issue? Fixes? I have re-installed Evernote, and reloaded the profile settings for the scanner.
  25. I want to scan, then save my OCR'd document locally and push to Evernote. I can do all of this but have one problem, the wait for the OCR to take place before I can scan my next document. If I skip the local OCR processing I can scan immediately, but I want the local OCR copy. To give more context, my use is scanning post and the scanner is remote from the PC (the screen is 20ft away) so my ideal is to open the scanner, drop in the document, hit the scan button and repeat. Not able to see the screen I don't know when the OCR has completed, and most importantly I don't won't to wait. Am I missing a method where I can just keep scanning, the OCR'ing gets queued as the onward local save and upload to Evernote? My scanner is the Fujitsu S1500, I appreciate this is a wider question than just EN, but hope the knowledgeable community here may have good advice :-).
