  1. I would be great if Evernote had a feature to convert parts of handwritten notes to text, similar to Microsoft's OneNote or Samsung's S-Note. Since the OCR search for handwritten text already works extremely well I feel like this shouldn't be too much of a problem.
  2. Hi, a search in the forums only turned something up towards PDFs and that wasn't very helpful. I am wondering if Evernote has the ability to extract the text (via OCR) from an uploaded image? I am thinking here of something similar that Microsoft's OneNote is doing (you can right click on an image, then tell it to "copy text" and then paste that text anywhere you like)? It would be greatly helpful for indexing / working with images / screenshots of articles and actually complete my evernote wish list (well, if I'd be nitpicking I'd love to see the voice to text as well, Microsoft is sorta kinda working on that, the ability to link certain notes to certain time stamps in the audio has proven quite useful in the past, but now I am rambling / digressing).
  3. No matter what I do, Evernote does not recognize handwriting for ocr. I tried penultimate, tried files from goodnote imported as image. This seems to work for everybody except for me. It’s not my handwriting - goodnote has no issues finding words in the text, the same note where Evernote returns No Matches. What is the secret?
  4. How long does this take, on average? I added a scanned typed document about 30 hours ago, and still nothing. I do understand that as a non-Premium member I'm in a queue....

    Rocketbook App

    I encountered a problem when I use rocketbook app. The ocr does not work when you upload pages using rocketbook app. (although they are jpgs.) When I upload the same page using Evernote app, the pages are searchable, when I upload the page using default camera of IOS, it is searchable. Is there anyone who has the same problem or knows how to solve it. Thank you in advance.
  6. My ReMarkable tablet is a great note taking device. I export an image PDF and include it into an Evernote document. The Evernote text preview on my Android is near perfect. I cannot copy the preview text. How can I export or copy that OCR text into another Evernote document? All help is appreciated. Premium user. SocceRef.
  7. Feel free to tell me if I'm straining the limits of Evernote, but here is what I'm trying to do: I am preparing a brief to be filed in an appellate court, and I am using EN to prepare the supporting appendix -- basically, several hundred PDFs that I will be citing to in the brief. I have the individual PDFs in separate notes all in a separate notebook in EN so I can easily find them and work with them. But now that I am nearly ready to prepare the appendix itself, there are some preparations I need to perform on the PDFs, e.g., OCRing them and numbering them. Sure would be nice if there's a way to OCR them in a batch without subjecting a staff member to the repetitive-muscle-disorder-inducing task of opening, OCRing, and saving all of them one by one. Are there any tricks that might help?
  8. As a user, who uses Evernote to make my home office paperless to handle incoming bills and alike I want Evernote to place tags on my notes as they scanned and OCR'd based on a learning based algorithm or a list of predefined keywords so that I do not need to add to frequently used tags such "cellphone bill", "utilities", etc. Best, Dave
  9. 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
  10. Please could a rule-based automation workflow be built into Evernote The idea is to use Evernote's OCR ability to identify a situation like: - If a Cabinet of a certain name exists and to then take an action, - If a receipt or expense is identified then to take an action, - If a statement is identified then to take an action, Actions that could be performed are: - to apply a TAG, - to OCR again and identify data like Date, Vendor, Amount, Currency, - to OCR again and identify Statement Date, Vendor, Date Range of statement, - to move the note to a particular Cabinet, - ...
  11. Please find a way to make all text in Moleskine notebooks extractable & importable into other uses/applications (like calendars & To Do Lists). At present, it's supposedly "searchable." However, the search never works for me. This was the whole reason I got the Moleskines & Evernote Premium. As I understand it, it's supposed to only be searchable, and it simply inserts images as a jpg (rather than doing anything with the text.)
  12. After taking a photo of a page of text with my iPhone, how can I process the photo of said page in order to extract the highlighted area of the text as a note using (EN) for Mac?

    Supporting Arabic OCR

    I am bilingual user (En/Ar). I've used Evernote's products since 2008. However, Evernote lacks Arabic support including RTL and OCR. There are about 400 millions Arabic speakers. Also Arabic letter are used by many other langages such as Urdu, Persian and Kurdish. I would like to see Arabic support in Evernote products.
  15. PLEASE - PLEASE - PLEASE: Please develop a product (similar to the discontinued Moleskine Daily Planner), that would allow us paper-calendar/planner lovers to integrate our calendars & schedules with Evernote & Outlook/Calendars/ICal. Here are my specific requested features/options: I would like to be able to write (on paper/old-school) my daily agenda/plan and to-dos on a hard copy daily (hour-by-hour) planner. I want to be able to scan that planner page, and have it sync with Evernote. I then want Evernote to convert that text (via OCR) into digital format - I do not want a scanned image/jpg of my calendar, that does me no good. I then want to have that digital plan uploaded / sync'd into my Outlook calendar (or maybe an Evernote calendar/planner than can be sync'd via the app, or another means like IFTTT or Zapier). I plan on paper, but execute off of digital/Outlook in my case. For this to work, the paper needs to be scannable into Evernote, and it must have an app integration that is OCR friendly. Furthermore, it would need to recognize preprinted dates and time blocks (hours), in order to synchronize with calendars. I want it to pay my bills and clean my house while we're at it... (Kidding... but yes, I realize I'm asking for a lot!) While I'm dreaming big, I would love to see Evernote partner with companies like these - which have easily acquired & quality daily planners (I like the ones that are small - pocket & personal sized, and that have the hourly time slots for appointments and such. Extra bonus if they also have a daily "to do" section.) MOLESKINE DAILY PLANNERS (You once offered this - where did it go? http://www.moleskinerie.com/2014/10/meet-the-moleskine-evernote-planner.html) Molekine's Daily Planner, with small/portable Colour/Color A Month Pocket Planners (#1 Request): https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B015NG45CE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 or via Moleskine at https://store.moleskine.com/usa/en-us/planners/2017-monthly-planners/12-month-color-a-month-planner/p981?ic=fe9MEQ%3D%3D Or even Moleskine's Daily Pocket Planner: https://store.moleskine.com/usa/en-us/planners/2017-daily-planners/12-month-daily-2017-planner/p1017?ic=WEqrnA%3D%3D They even have them in Peanuts' style: https://store.moleskine.com/usa/en-us/planners/2017-daily-planners/12-month-limited-edition-peanuts-daily-2017-planner-pocket/p978?ic=WydEOg%3D%3D Really, I'd consider any other quality planner with daily / hourly planning options from Covey, At-A-Glance, Day-Timer, etc. Fellow users - PLEASE take a second to VOTE on this. The more votes it gets, the more likely they are to add this feature. Thanks!
  16. EN does a really good job of recognizing handwriting in a jpeg file, but doesn't apply it to pdf's. I use a sheet fed scanner to scan in multiple pages of handwritten notes. I can scan them as pdf's and send them directly to EN, which is easy, but with no recognition. If I scan them as jpegs, EN treats each page as a separate note. It's a major hassle trying to merge them into one note. First, notes are always merged with the most recent on top, so you need to scan them in reverse order. Second, there are large and unnecessary headers and titles for each page, that need to be removed manually. I have made it work, but it adds a HUGE amount of time to an otherwise simple workflow. It would be SO MUCH EASIER if you would simply apply the handwriting recognition to pdf's.. Thanks for considering
  17. Hi everyone, I'm struggling a bit with the Evernote OCR search on Windows 10. I scan a lot of notes from University into the system and wish to use the search to find key points etc. My main issue is I can't cycle through the returned results from a search. As you can imagine (or have been there yourself) a subject about finance is going to have the word formula mentioned quite repeatedly on multiple pages. But for some reason, if I search for formula it just gives me every note with that in it, and I'm unable to cycle through the results to find what I'm after. The worst part is control+F search in note doesn't search handwriting, only typed text. Does anyone know of a workaround for this or if I'm just searching incorrectly? At the moment to search my notes, im forced to email them to myself in Gmail and wait for Google to OCR it then search my inbox, not the best way, especially with all my other notes already in Evernote. Thanks for any advice
  18. I think an important feature is to disable the automatic OCR function in imported pictures. I have many old documents, which are systematically misread by Evernote, and I am not able to make a proper search with this software because it all gets messed up
  19. OS: Windows 7 & 8 EN: ISSUE: Ink Notes created in Evernote are not OCR'ed and therefore not searchable. CUSTOMER SUPPORT: Here is the text of an email from Jack at EN support: Dear Valued Customer, Sorry about that, Ink notes are not made for the purpose to be directly compatible with our OCR but specifically designed to be used with a fine-point drawing device, such as a stylus then imported as .png file, after that you can try to index. Hope it helps! Jack DISCUSSION: I've been an Evernote user since the early tablet PC days when the ability to use a pen to create handwritten notes made EN stand out. I even became a Premium subscriber to get priority access to the OCR capability. Since there is no menu or command for exporting native EN Ink Notes to .png files, the support reply is at least unhelpful. Further, it makes me wonder if Jack is aware that EN has the ability to create it's own Ink Notes (which used to be searchable for text before all OCR capability was moved from the application binaries to the servers). Furthermore, iOS users of Penultimate (an app acquired years after EN started) can send their handwritten notes straight to EN in three clicks for almost instant OCR. Finally, as you can see from the workaround below, there has to be a simpler fix than buying an app to make EN's own Ink Notes support EN's own OCR. WORKAROUND: Create new Ink Note. Write your text. From the Edit menu, click Select All. From the Edit menu, click Copy. Create a new note. From the Edit menu, click Paste. Sync. Wait a few minutes. Sync again. The handwriting copied from the Ink Note is now OCR'ed and searchable.
  20. Hi all, I am currently having an issue with the searchability of documents when using the Scansnap Cloud service. I am currently using an Scansnap ix500 scanner. WHEN I DO USE SCANSNAP CLOUD (WIRELESS) Currently, I have Scansnap Cloud set up such that all documents go straight to Evernote (as can be seen in the first attached picture). However, when the documents arrive in Evernote, they are not searchable/OCR'd. WHEN I DON"T USE SCANSNAP CLOUD (WIRED) When I have a wired connection and send the documents to Evernote through Scansnap's "quick menu" (from the included software CD - see the second attached picture), the documents arrive in Evernote and are indeed searchable (OCR'd). Why am I having this issue? At first, I though that the WIRED option runs the OCR on my computer and THEN sends it to Evernote (whereas under the WIRELESS option there may be no OCR on the Scansnap Cloud server side before it is sent to Evernote). However, doesn't Evernote have OCR capabilities on their end as well (and so it shouldn't matter whether the document has been "pre OCR'd" before arriving)? Or is OCR only a premium feature?
  21. It would be great if Evernote included Arabic language in the supported languages for search in documents. along with real RTL support in the PC, Mac and mobile clients
  22. Hello EN friends, I'm confused ... I OCR all my PDFs when scanning them to Evernote (through ScanSnap). When I process the PDF in Evernote, I used to be able to go into the PDF and copy/paste text (because it's OCRed). This is very helpful e.g. when I want to edit the title of my note. But all of the sudden I am no longer able to do that within Evernote. I would have to open the PDF in Preview or Adobe Reader - only then I'm able to mark/copy text from my scanned document. Did I miss anything? I use the latest Evernote version on Mac (both Sierra and Yosemite).
  23. This is probably a strange request, but I want to disable text recognition in images. I'm using a notebook in Evernote for scans of index cards, but the text recognition is giving me so many false positives (particularly when I search for rare terms) that it's getting really frustrating. Is this an option? If so, how? **** More details for the curious or in case it's relevant: Every article I read that I think may be useful in the future gets an index card, with its citation and a summary of the most relevant findings/protocols/approaches, along with keywords written on the back. These are scanned into Evernote as individual notes and then kept in a card file by first author. The note in Evernote gets updated with the title as the citation (sans title) and the body containing the title and keywords. When I want to find a reference but can't remember the first authors' name, I can search for the appropriate keywords, likely title text, or an oddball word I remember was associated with the paper. I also use keyword searches to look for all papers I have that could be relevant to that concept and just skim through them to find the appropriate one. Example false-positives below. FWIW, my handwriting isn't great and has some quirks, but it's usually fairly easily read by other humans. Search text: "review" False hits: “Prevalence of”, “the view”, “recombination”, “mutant”, “remainder” Search text: "local" False hits: “could”, “(2007)”, “loci that” Search text: "spatial" False hits: “teacher survey”, “speciation"

    "Moleskine captured"

    I am a everyday user of EN. I have several note to archive and support my family lifestyle. I also use a Moleskine Evernote Smart Notebook for my job. So EN's ability to use different online notebooks, tags, etc, are perfect for how I use it. The post is to highlight two of my most important feature requests. 1. If I can search for my handwritten notes, I want to be able to copy and paste the text elsewhere. I understand that it wouldn't be perfect OCR all of the time, but this is the biggest 'missing piece' for me in Evernote. I keep so many Moleskine captured pages that not being able to copy the information is turning me away from spending the time and effort to capture it in the first place. 2. The ability to edit and tag Moleskine Notebook captures. When using the widget, or the quick launch for taking pictures directly into a new note, I am often frustrated with the ability to provide the note a title and tags before I have to save it. I launch the camera from a the widget or the quick launch 3D Touch option and once the image is captured, I can save or delete it. I can even add more pictures, but I cannot add a title to the note or tags until I have saved it, the reopened it to provide edits. Please develop an option here to rectifié the extra steps presently needed which at end to negate any "quick" aspect to the EN photo capture. I have my ideas on how to make this look, but I'd rather see a feature to support my request rather than wait for the perfect one. Pete I use Evernote on the following: iPhone 6S Plus and iPad Air, MacBook Pro, iMac, and a PC running Windows 7 (yes that is the work computer).
  25. Hello, I would like to kindly ask you to add the ability to OCR text in Bulgarian. When I go to personal settings and open the recognition language drop down, I see many language combinations, including Srpski + English, Croatian + English, Greek + English, Română + English, but no Bulgarian + English. I would like to request this feature. Thank you.
