My apologies if this topic has been covered previously; I could not seem to find a firm answer via the search functions, so here I am. I am a new premium user after a year on Evernote, and I recently made the paperless plunge with the addition of a Scansnap 1500 on a Windows platform. I have a boat load of archived and frequently reviewed hand-written (not cursive, usually) notes that, if possible, I would like to get into a searchable format within EN. I would also like to maintain a filing structure outside of EN for these scanned documents, for both backup and non-Endnote sharing purposes. My process to this point for scans of digital documents (primary source journal articles, book chapters, proceedings, etc.) has been: scan to high quality PDF into my desktop "inbox" folder (purged at least daily) Rename PDF as per my system OCR with Acrobat X Pro Save as optimized PDF Import to my "collection box" within EN and tag/note away. (aside) then move the pdf to a cloud-synced and locally backed up folder structure Is there any merit to scanning hand-written (ink and paper) documents as jpegs? I did a trial on some older lecture notes and found that although the EN OCR function performed very well for keyword searches, relying on the EN solution leaves my non-EN notes unsearchable. I would love to minimize even my current process as much as possible while retaining as many options for the files outside of EN. Unless I was missing something, scanning multi-page written notes as images also requires one to aggregate the separate pages into one document to be uploaded as a note; this is a bit of a turn-off as well. I have gotten so much from these forums already, so thank you all, and I look forward to any responses.
