  1. Hi all, I've been testing how to use evernote for organizing receipts and invoices for multiple properties i own. The reason I chose evernote is because of the support, robust platform, excellent fast phone scanning and searchable text. Mostly it's working great. The one thing I cannot seem to control is the ordering of the photos. If I take a sequence of 5 photos in one note, I would like the newest ones to come on top instead of the newest ones to go to the bottom. Is there any way to control this? Thanks Nick
  2. Hello, I am looking for a sofware, which can auto add tags to documents based on the content. For example it recognizes the date: 01.01.2001 and adds a tag with date: 01.01.2001 or it recognizes the recipient of the bill Adam Smith. So it adds the tags Smith and Adam. Then, to find the file later on, I just have to type Adam Smith and see all the files regarding Adam Smith and so on. I actually think it should be possible with todays hard- and software, but I couldn't find anything like that. I need it to realise my paperless buero I would really appreciate any help. Best Regards, J.
  3. After struggling for years to go entirely paperless, I am delighted to have found Evernote. Its search capability is unbelievably good, and its UI is superb. There is only one feature it lacks for my use. I have built databases over the years that contain 500 to 2000 documents. These Access databases include some metadata with each document that provide a way to search through them, which is unnecessary of course in Evernote. I have been able to extract the document images--nearly all pdfs, but also including some other formats--from the databases and place them in a folder, one file per document. My problem is getting them into Evernote as individual notes. I only need to do this once, as I will be scanning or entering all newly acquired documents manually. I found that I can use Finder's Add to Evernote command on each file name, and it does exactly what I want. But, it only does it one file at a time; it is not present if I select multiple files. I have actually imported over 500 documents using that command, but it is a mind-numbing repetitive task. The obvious thing would be an extension of the command to multiple files for the Mac and the equivalent one for the PC.
  4. I've been using Evernote for years, but I've encountered something I'd never seen before. I routinely keep handwritten notes in a pocket notebook or steno pad and scan them into Evernote for safekeeping and search. Today I scanned my pocket notebook, dropped the PDF into the Evernote app on my MacBook, but when I checked it in the app on my phone I saw some of the text had been removed. I've attached two screenshots, one taken from a page from the original note in the Evernote app on my MacBook, where everything still looks fine, and the other of the same page as it appears when I call up the same PDF on my iPhone. If I tap the Annotate button in the app on my phone, I can see the original writing on the page — but even if I annotate that page and save it, the redacted page still displays. Is this because I put a line through some of my notes? If that's a feature in the iOS app, how can I turn it off so I can see my complete handwritten notes as I intended them to look?

  6. Hi, I converted all my documents to electronic copies a couple of years ago, I am now looking at using Ever Note to store my documents mainly to give me a better way to search documents, but have a couple of concerns and am after some thoughts. 1. As EN doesn't offer End to End encryption I am looking at Encrypting the pdf's... and attaching them in EN (I know I wont be able to search on the contents but if I TAG well this should resolve the mostly), has anyone else used this approach and how well does it work not just on desktop but on web, mobile... 2. Corruption I have read some articles on the web of people suffering from Notes corrupting does this still happen is there a known trigger (I will be backing up my EN data folder but my backup's will only be kept for 90 days) Thanks
  7. All Notes have a white background color. It will be good to include different background colors - like the black and foreground can be white (or green). Does anyone know if this is possible right now ?? Thx
  8. 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.
  9. Hi - Is there a way or an app that scan paper and autotag based on the text inside? for example: if I scan Comcast bill, It will autotag the scan with "comcast, bill ...." ? Thanks
  10. I have been 100% paperless for a few years now, and was 90% paperless for years before that (usually due to others, not me). Evernote is how I have done this. All of my notes and emails get saved in Evernote, I clip web pages, save PDF files, and scan any paper I receive into Evernote (I have the Evernote Scanner or use my smartphone camera). Here are some resources I used to go paperless: https://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/search/label/paperless
  11. Hi there. I want to share my "paperless workflow" scheme here to get some feedback, if any. thank you. Naz.
  12. As I am trying to go paperless, I was wondering what format would it be best to scan in. At first, I was scanning to PDF, but then realized that I when viewed on the web, I do not see the document. Instead I must open a new window to view the PDF. Also Evernote's OCR only does PDFs if you are a paid member. So I choose to scan my files into image format so that I can see the file on the web without opening a new window. I choose the PNG file format for its lower file size compared to the JPG. Recently, I learned about searchable PDF's which have a hidden text layer within the PDF which makes them searchable without Evernote's OCR. I can make these, but it takes more time and steps then just simply scanning the file. So, which should I scan my documents into: PDF, image, or searchable PDF? Thank you.
  13. I got my Fujitsu Scansnap S1300 today. My plan was to use is for scanning my mail and documents to Evernote. I was very excited about going paperless and all until I realised that the Scansnap software does not support OCR in my language. Norwegian, that is. Right now I am wondering if I should just return the scanner, or if there might be some way around the problem. My first idea was to let Evernote do the OCR. However, Evernote does not support Norwegian text recognition at this point. So... Say I upload my PDFs now and let Evernote scan them using a dictionary similar to Norwegian (such as Danish). And say Evernote gets Norwegian support one day. Will I then be able to reprocess all my PDFs on the Evernote servers? (In one operation?) According to Evernote's public language availability chart, Norwegian OCR support is "waiting for web client". What does that mean? And what can desperate Norwegian Evernote users do to help speed up the process? I notice that I can right-click a PDF in Evernote, open it in Acrobat, and OCR scan it from there. After saving, the (Norwegian) PDF in Evernote is now perfectly searchable. It works great. Is there any way I could batch process all the PDFs in my Evernote account using Acrobat, ABBYY or some other OCR software? (In that way I could run that process every once in a while.) Do you know of any other Mac OCR software that can receive a file, process it and automatically transfer it to Evernote? (To achieve one-click scanning.) Any help and suggestions would be much appreciated!
  14. Hi there, I've been reading around, but I can't find an answer to this question. Are there scanners which can scan multiple 2-sided pages directly to my Evernote account without the neccesarity of a separate computer in the middle? The Xerox machines here at the office have that option, but that's a bit too much for me ;-) . It's just for home use and school. I can't find if the affordable snapshot scanners have that option. Any suggestions?
  15. Hi, I'm using evernote since some years with my Canon P-215. This works fine, the only thing annoying me is this stupid software CaptureOnTouch Canon provides. It shows confirmation dialogs and doesn't let me scan multiple scanprocesses and the scanners buttonpresses aren't recognized every time. So I wonder, do you have any ideas for a better software to scan directly into evernote using Windows? Greetings Torsten
  16. I was was wondering how many college students have gone paperless with the help of Evernote. Is it possible? What is your experience? Thanks for your replies in advance! Looking forward to reading from you. If you like this topic, you might also want to have a look here:
  17. Is it a good idea to move all documents from my entire lifetime to EverNote? I have organized folders from all the way back when I was in grade school, high school, college, my first jobs, etc. I have typed letters, diary entries, and creative writing as well. I am tired of having to live out of multiple places to find my stuff, such as my laptop for some folders versus Google Drive for others versus EverNote for others. I want everything is one place, period. Is it a good idea to place *all* of my documents I ever had into EverNote? I could easily organize them and such, but I am wondering if it's good for the long haul. Maybe putting the eggs in one basket is a bad idea, or maybe it will save me a lot of frustration and time as long as I backup my EverNote account. Thoughts?
  18. So guys, need your help, im going to college again(nutrition) and i want to be more paperless and efficient, beside that i like studying different kind of subjects, but unfortunately i have to keep printing pdfs for annotation and things like that, i also have a notebook with me for frequent annotations on things i find interesting, or read, saw somewhere. My main question is, which could be the right device for that use, handwriting notes, annotate on pdfs, draw, read ebook and make annotations there(points, arrows, handwritten notes, post its), save web articles for studying, ill use the evernote to keep all of them in the same place, but i need the manual thing on a portable device or ill start to get way too much mechanic and not creative, i like mind maping, drawing, highlighting, colors, for my learning. From what i saw, the ipad pro together with the notability app or the good notes 4 would be a good call(i heard those are good together with the evernote), but im new in this world and i want some suggestions, thats it, i currently have a lg g4, and this would be my first apple device maybe, need help. Edit: I already have a dell notebook for when i need a true desktop.
  19. Hello all - first time poster here... I've been banging my head against the wall trying to define a paperless process that is going to hold in the long term and I've been suck in this darn analysis paralysis loop. I'm hoping you smart folks out there can shed some light on Evernote so that I can better make a decision. Several years ago I made a concerted effort to go paperless using Ironic Software's Yep product. My process was to scan in pretty much everything (all receipts, statements, bills, etc) using my ScanSnap S510M, give it a date-based name, put in a folder (same folder for everything) and then use Yep to assign and manage tags. This worked out fairly well until I tried to upgrade to Yep 2. World turned upside-down. The product was complicated and I found its filing system awkward and inflexible. For those of you who don't know, Yep basically allows you to tag files regardless of where they are in your filesystem. At the time I had considered Evernote, but I was too worried about security to embrace it. So, I read David Sparks' book Paperless and started a new process. In this process, I would rename files (mostly automatically using Hazel) and carefully place them into folders and subfolders. This got, shall we say, tedious... I still have nightmares about this. Needless to say, I was unable to sustain my efforts. Since then, I've accumulated boxes of "to be scanned" whilst redefine my processes. I generally think my two biggest mistakes where: (1) not focusing enough on the process and (2) not clearly defining what to keep and ditch. So... My new process will be as automatic as possible. I'm going to have a set of rules for what I scan. I'm also going to use a combination of FileThis.com (an AMAZING service btw) and Hazel to prep my scanned/downloaded pdf files (name them, tag them, etc). What I'm not sure about is how to do the ongoing management of those files. (re)Enter Evernote... My on again off again love affair with Evernote and its sexy features could be a dramatic "one that got away" Lifetime movie. Ok, maybe not. I've dabbled with it for note-taking purposes. I've read almost every article there is about it. I've done everything but put it to the test. Here are my concerns.. I'm hoping you experts can help me address them (or validate them). Evernote isn't for everyone. Security - I'm a little concerned about security at rest on Evernote servers. I know they don't encrypt data on their servers. Easy fix, right? Just make a local notebook for sensitive information (such as taxes, legal stuff, etc). Well, I've read some posts that suggest that Evernote might get rid of local notebooks. Any truth to that? Lock-in - Let's face it, once I get 20,000 pdf files in Evernote, I'm pretty committed. But what if I need to leave Evernote? (Let's just say something changes some day and I no longer want to use it.) What then? I know you can export notes, but what if I just want all my pdf files sent to a directory? I've seen the way that Evernote stores attachments on a Mac and it would take some scripting to get all the files out - not to mention their tags. Trust - I realize this is something that I just need to get over, but I've read that occasionally Evernote, through some bug or strange corner case, has misplaced a note or two. Can I trust that Evernote won't lose notes? I would plan on doing backups, but with 20,000 notes you may never realize you even lost the note. For example, I make lots of physical donations for tax write-offs. At the end of the year, I would just search Evernote for the "charity" tag or the "2015 Tax" tag. If the note isn't there, I'll never know it was lost, backup or no. One thought I had was to add a backup of the file using Hazel. I.e. Before I use Applescript to load the file into Evernote, I could copy the file to a backup location with some OpenMeta tags. If I do this, I could easily search using Finder. Then what would be the point of Evernote? I don't care much about the sharing feature for my paperless files. I do love the email-to-Evernote feature, but I could live with out it. I could even resurrect Yep (now version 3) and use it as a file viewer/tagger since it supports OpenMeta, though I still find Yep unnecessarily complicated. Again, Evernote is pretty sexy... Decisions decisions... ;^)
  20. I started my paperless journey about 3 years ago. I have a small business and scan all business documents and personal documents to ScanSnap organizer. I use Evernote (as well as Organizer) for reference materials, to do's and the like. I see where many of you scan directly to Evernote. Are you talking about business files? Am I complicating my paperless journey? Pros? Cons? By the way, I have redundant backup with both external hard drive and web backup.
  21. Hello all As there are quite a lot of Fujitsu scansnap users on this forum, I hope somebody can answer my question. I use my Scansnap S1300 to scan documents into PDF's into Evernote both with and without adding OCR. The advantage of adding OCR are evident but for large piles of paper it takes quite some extra time. Often, I doubt whether I really need OCR for a particular document. It would be very helpful if there was a way to add OCR at a later date when it turns out that I indeed want to search the text or copy paste fragments of it. Does anybody know whether this is possible and how? Many thanks.
  22. I am about to embark on a project to reduce 25 years of handwritten journal pages to Evernote and regain about 10 ft of bookshelf space and am studying my options before I begin. The bulk of it is half pages, two pages per day. So optimum would be one scan per day. Which might not work with a document feeder. And if it can be a single jpeg I want them to be stored landscape, so they are easy to read. I think I will choose jpeg so that the printed dates on the pages are searchable. There is not a handwriting OCR alive that can cope with my hand writing. Even I have difficulty once it gets cold. Anyone try this? Anyone have thoughts on how to proceed?
  23. Hi all, Noobish question here: I have never used any digital tool to learn a new language, and since I carry Evernote everywhere, anyhow, I wondered if there wasn't a way to use it for my purposes. Now, since I have literally no concept of what I can do with Evernote in this regard, I simply wanted to ask what you guys recommend. I am mainly looking to create a few tables to beef up my vocabulary of Business Finnish , but I am really open to everything else that can be done with this marvellous little program! Thanks in advance for all answers, and thanks Evernote Corporation for effectively making my life better! Yours, Rafe
  24. Hi Evernote fans! I'm new to Evernote, but not to the concept. Thanks for making a great product. I own a Fujitsu ScanSnap s1500m scanner (and it's awesome). For the past 18 months, I scan in all my papers, receipts, everything into Mariner Software's "Paperless" application. While I like this application, the absence of an iPad/iPhone version and/or a Web version is quite limiting. I would like to migrate my entire Paperless library (~1400 documents at last count, mostly PDF) including tags into Evernote. Does anyone know how how? I have nicely sorted all my documents in Paperless to have their correct date, and tagged - and would like to have this reflected in Evernote (i.e. tags, creation date). It's very easy to simply drag + drop all files into Evernote and have them appear as Notes but I would like my tags to be carried over and creation date saved. Anyone have any ideas? I really don't want to have to spend days figuring out how to write a script to export from the Paperless SQLite database, and then another script/tool to import into Evernote.... Thanks Ryan.
  25. I'm a big fan of Evernote in general and I'm using the Premium version of Evernote for some time now with a Fujitsu ScanSnap 1500. I had great dreams of using the Evernote 'searchable PDF' option to scan in all my paper and find stuff using text search when needed. But, despite numerous promises, Evernote have failed to deliver a PDF search that reliably highlights the searched text in the search results. Usually I end up with one result (the first, as a rule) with correctly highlighted text, and the rest of the list either have no highlighted results, or can have all kinds of random highlight spots, often on totally blank areas. Evernote have been aware of this problem for many months now, but it has not been addressed in any of their updates. I'm very disappointed and frustrated by this 'Evernote Premium' behaviour.
