  1. There used to be a thumbnail displayed next to a note whith handwritten notes - a verry cute visual help - it no longer exists. Can you make sure this works again ? Thank you...
  2. Regarding handwritten notes, I'd like to suggest: 1) Copy/paste selections. - It's only possible to move selections around. We can't cut/copy or paste them. 2) S-Pen support: 2.1) Use fingers as erasers and/or selection tool and S-Pen as writing utensil. 2.2) Sometimes what I write shows tiny lines around because of my palm on the screen. 3) Type text onto handwritten notes. 4) Paste images onto handwritten notes. 5) More pen colors! 6) Show eraser size. 7) Stroke eraser. 8) Create folders within notebooks. Thanks in advance.
  3. Can't handwrite directly onto notes Hi there, I'm trying to use my lenovo x1 yoga stylus to write directly onto a note. I've tried using the paperclip, but there is no option to select the pen. The only option is to attach a file. I've enabled handwriting in the toolbar but it opens a new note where I can handwrite - although this cannot be integrated within a typed note. my question is: how can I incorporate handwritten and type notes into one note? Thank you!
  4. Please, add the option to set the eraser size when editing handwritten notes. The eraser is quit big right now, making it very easy to erase content you don't want to erase.
  5. I had a handwritten notes and while trying to change it to plain text, they disappeared without any warning. is there a way I can retrieve them? im using iPad Air 2.
  6. Suggestion: Decrease the file size of handwritten note images so Evernote can become the one application that allows you to compose and send handwritten emails! ;-) Personally, I'd write by hand every message I intend to send by email if the file size of the resulting images weren't so large. I'd simply write all of my messages by hand using Evernote, then "Share" them by "Email". Evernote can bring handwriting back from the dead! Simply compress the file size of the handwriting-image as it's being sent so users won't have to worry about the person they're emailing becoming upset about being forced to receive their enormously sized emails that take up a huge chunk of their inbox's storage space. Whatcha think? Thoughts?
  7. I'm seeking a way to exclude recognized data while including textual data from the same when searching and have yet to find a good way to do so. Why would I want to do this? Web clips and notes with attached photos or scans of handwritten notes generate a lot of false positive results when searching. One can include "-RecoType:*" in the search box to eliminate all notes with any recognized data but that doesn't allow one ot search the not recognized, plain text note content. It'd also be nice if there was a way to correct recognizer hits when they are wrong. For example, when one searches for the word "Surplus" and the result set shows notes that contain handwritten notes highlighting what Evernote thinks is the word "Surplus" but is in fact some completely unrelated word, it'd be nice if one could click on the incorrectly recognized word and mark it as not "Surplus" or even better yet, provide the correct text that should be recognized there. This would allow for elimination of false positives on subsequent searches for the same word. Recognizing handwritten text and embedded text in photos is really cool, but the false positives are often hysterical and also frustrating, worse than Siri and autocorrect. Am I the only one who has this problem or merely the only one who hasn't figured out how to solve it? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. Scott Turner
  8. Hi. I have been using a Livescribe 3 for a few months. The app sends automatically everything I write or draw to my Evernote account. It works really well ! The only thing with which I am still struggling is Evernote's OCR. Evernote recognizes a lot of my words, but very few proper nouns, and apparently no complete expressions... As a result, so far, impossible to retrieve a note via a codename or a project name... The results on the Livescribe app are much much more relevant... Does anyone know if it is possible to parameter Livescribe and/or Evernote in order to get better results when searching handwritten notes on Evernote ? Charles Paris France
  9. Hi I've been having a hard look at this combination, in particular how it might work for incorporating handwritten notes into Evernote and having them indexed and efficiently searchable. As part of the process I did some practical trials of different approaches and the outcomes may be of interest to those working out their own workflows. The opinions expressed apply purely to my own approach to the issues and are not intended to be the answers for everyone! I wrote this up as an Evernote note, the link is below: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s295/sh/bb3d6095-7d18-4740-ab19-9840b7cdc327/b2b70536c1a365cedfb7da07cce1330c Q

    mac (Archived) Handwritten PDFs for OCR

    I have to take a lot of handwritten notes for class. I was wondering how effective the OCR is for handwritten PDFs. If JPG is preferable, that's fine. I just need to know which format is best to save my notes into. Also, I'm a new premium subscriber. Thanks!
  11. I have lots of handwritten notes in light ink that once scanned are barely readable and some not at all. The forum posts I found about light ink gave information for ongoing processes, but mine is not ongoing. The 500 students in China who wrote down their contact info for me are not available to do it again in darker in. Scanning at 600 dpi didn't help much, if at all. The help stuff on contrast seems to assume you are scanning text, not handwriting. BTW, the ability to have these notes OCR'd is optional as far as I'm concerned--I just want to be able to read them on the screen. I can't redo the scans, the notes have been discarded. Can anyone tell me (in simple steps) what to do? I'm a new premium member and have never posted before, so if I am doing somthing wrong in terms of posting here, please be kind when you tell me. Yes, I did search for an answer before posting.
  12. Hello I hope this is the right category for my question. I am a teacher and until now I still use my paper based teachers calendar. I think it is cool to take a picture of something handwritten to upload it to Evernote. But I am not sure if there is a possibility, to edit a handwritten note in the same way. For example I have a page with a table of notes, my students got within the last month. I take a picture and Evernote recognizes this table and integrates it with the already existing table which I uploaded a month ago, or which I created using Excel. Is this possible with my smartphone camera? Or maybe with the livescribe Smartpen? This device should recognize the paper as the same one I wrote on before...!? thank you :-)
  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. I have a KINDLE FIRE HD. Is there a way to take handwritten notes on Evernote?
  15. So I'm a college student, and all semester I had to continuously hand-write my notes because in most of my classes I draw diagrams or other things of that nature. Is there a way on evernote for me to switch easily between handwriting and keyboard typing for when i have to draw diagrams or type in equations that are harder to write through a keyboard thanks
