I'm surprised that Evernote can search and highlight the text found in pdfs but can't do this with let's say MS Word documents. If I have multiple 300-page documents attached to the note, it would be of a great value for me to find specific word/term within it while it's in the Evernote, but currently seems the only solution is to convert all of them into pdfs. Only then it will work. It's strange since in my simple mind OCR seems more complicated technology than just reading and highlighting text in a Microsoft Word document.
HI folks, Has Evernote ever overcome the problems of not being able to edit MS Office docs on Android devices? The latest info I can find on this was dated 2012 - so has there been a fix for this issue? I created an Excel file on my pc, attached the file to a note in evernote, and then opened it on my android device (which has Excel) - the file opens fine - but it is a read only file. I need to be able to edit and save this file from multiple devices - not just on my computer! I am seeing some work arounds - like using Drop box or purchasing a program like OfficeSuite 8 - or just forgetting about evernote and using google docs etc - but those are all extra steps - just sticking with evernote would be simpler if this issue has been fixed, since all the rest of my notes related to spreadsheet are in the associated evernote file. Any suggestions would be appreciated - I have a project I need to do today away from office and planned on using my Galaxy Note 5 and a Bluetooth keyboard. Thanks, Rob
Hello everyone. Recently embarking on the paperless journey, I have quickly realized that for the elegant simplicity of naming and tagging documents to be thrown into the Evernote soup and retrieved later via metadata or a robust search, there are many hang-ups in doing so with documents that one either needs to edit, ammend, aggregate, or otherwise tinker with while doing work. Whether these documents are as basic as MS Office files, or as complex as large statistical data sets, there are things that, at this juncture, just cannot live happily in the Evernote world. Without a boring discourse, I really have two fundamental questions: For those who require a file structure outside of evernote to do work (be it because of file formatting, frequent editing, sharing with non-evernoters, firewall issues for EN syncing, etc) - what, if any, program(s) do you use to achieve a similar level of ubiquitous access to your files as is provided in Evernote (i.e. Dropbox, Sugarsync, GDrive, etc.).? Whether you use a cloud sync tool or not, what is your preferred method of non-Evernote folder/file nomenclature/project structure? Does your file and folder nomenclature change if the documents are to eventually be archived in Evernote? I have grown quite fond of the YYMMDD prefix that Grumpy Monkey has adapted for his digital life, but I am struggling with how such a filing identifier can be adopted into a file naming system which also uses things like job (project) identifier codes (i.e. project 172C) to categorize and track things like costing, logistics coordination and billing. I ask these things because it appears as though I am quite unintentionally relying upon Evernote as a capture and action-related tool due to the bulk of my ongoing work taking place outside of Evernote. At the same time, I see great utility in combining the two, and at the very least would like to develop a work process that naturally feeds one into the other (or back and forth between the two). Any advice or experience in this area is, of course, much appreciated. Thank you all in advance for your valuable input on these forums. Without your willingness to share your experiences, I would still be mired in the paper/digital hinterland with the lion's share of my colleagues. It has drastically changed the way I approach information and work.
