I would like Evernote to: 1, Offer to collect Meta Data like Date, Amount, Currency, Vendor, for each note, 2, Use its OCR capability to identify that the item is a receipt, - Then to identify Date, Amount, Currency, Vendor
I'm just a few days into Evernote (using the Mac client). I'm discovering search function oddities that surprise me. For example, if I'm searching for a currency amount, typing "3842.42" (without the quotes) won't find an entry of $3,842.42. Another: If text wraps mid-word in a pdf (added to Evernote as a formatted pdf file, not a scan), searching for a whole word won't find that entry if its been hyphenated. I'd never encountered this before, so I tested searching a pdf in Adobe Reader, and text search within the application can find both therefore and there-fore (when the hyphen occurs at a line break in the pdf. Actually, Adobe Reader's search seems dramatically more intelligent than Evernote's. For example, if I search for "there-fore" in Adobe reader, it will not find words that are hyphenated solely because of line break formatting, but it will find all instances of "non-optional" hyphens and display them with the leading word fragment. For example, a search for "audit-based" will find all instances of the hyphenated word, and a search for "-" will display "audit-" but not the hyphens that occur as a consequence of line linebreaks. Obviously, Adobe's entire history is intertwined with text formatting, so one might expect their tools to be more sophisticated. I've found examples where nuanced searching isn't as heuristic; e.g., my bank's website won't find a transaction for a specific amount if the formatting isn't exactly as entered in the search box; e.g., it fails to find the amount listed above unless I include the comma in the search field, and it won't find dollar amounts unless I enter the ".00" in the search field.
