  1. Document Management in Evernote

    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?
  2. In an effort to move towards a paperless office, I've been scanning my documents into EN for quite some time. I haven't scanned anything in a few months and my papers were starting to pile up. I noticed that when I scanned my documents this time, the pages are out of order in EN after it is processed by the scanner (I place the document(s) in order into the scanner chute). I googled it and looked through this forum and didn't find much help. I've always scanned them as pdf into EN with OCR with no problems. I made sure that the file format was still in pdf. Anybody else experiencing this? It's driving me nuts! I'm running macOS High Sierra Ver 10.13.1, EN Version 6.13 (455674 App Store) with ScanSnap Manager Version 3.2 L91 (ScanSnap S1300i). Thanks in advance for your help!
  3. Hi guys. I am new to everenote and have two questions: 1) In Evernote, can I annotate the PDF-files, as in making dialogue text bubbles on the pdf-articles? Is there a good way to make such note taking on pdf-articles in Everenote, or should I otherwise annotate them outside of Evernote and then put them in Evernote? The pdf-files I am talking about is scientific articles, so I want to do note-taking in the margins. 2) If I have a note, can I make a "commentory note" on that note? For example, If I have a pdf-article saved in my notes, can I make a commentary note on that article so that I have "2 notes in 1 note". If I for example want to analyze the content of the article and connect those two together, I mean.. Or, do I need to make a separate note then? Do you guys have any tips for doing such commentory notes? Thanks!
  4. I am experiencing an issue lately when scanning a document using Evernote iOS app's camera function. I take a pic of the document, confirm that it was recognized as a "Document", but instead of saving as a PDF in the note, it saves as an image. This is a new issue... before, the document would be saved as a PDF in the note. I am a Premium member and pretty advanced user for many years. Anyone else experiencing this, or know how to fix? Thanks Greg
  5. Add feature in the Evernote Camera for direct scanning in PDF format without the need to use Scannable. In the Evernote Camera there should be the option to push a button and simply save the document in PDF.
  6. I'm a researcher and I spend a lot of time reading and annotating papers with my thoughts and comments. I'm trying to use evernote to save on printing them out and also to keep them all together. When I use upad or penultimate with my stylus, I can free handwrite on the pdf. However, when I annotate a pdf in evernote with a stylus, the programme "smooths" the line I draw making it difficult to handwrite. Further, if I handwrite I often will double tap the screen in the process of writing a word, meaning that the previous stroke of the pen is selected for deletion (try handwriting t, or h, in annotation mode). In order to continue writing I have to tap somewhere else on the screen mid word or letter and then go back to it, which slows me down and makes annotation unusuable. Can evernote fix this by having a handwrite annotation option on pdf annotation? This is vital if I'm going to write comments on a pdf, I don't want to type as I find doing so on an ipad slow and unweildy. Further small point - when I open a pdf to annotate, the "arrow" is the default annotation tool, to save time, it would be better if evernote remembered the last tool you were using and opened with this onel. I note this has been an ongoing problem since 2014 for researchers trying to use evernote, and will push people onto other platforms:
  7. With everything Evernote can already do -- I think it would be AWESOME! if we could Export Notes and Notebooks into PDF's. Searchable PDF's would be an added benefit. Already tried searching the forums for this topic and had 0 results. Rank this up if you like the idea.
  8. PDF import doubled

    Since one of the last updates I get every imported pdf-file twice. One of those just states some useless information. I have to delete it every time. It does not matter if this import comes from my Mac or from my smartphone. Any idea? Thanks
  9. I find myself searching through PDF files fairly often, and it's a bit cumbersome. As an example: I have 50 PDFs of 75 pages each. I want to find Jane Doe's address. Jane is mentioned in all 50 of my PDFs, but I'm not sure what her address is, or which PDF it may be in. My process winds up being a a main search which gives me a list of 50 notes, at which point I have two options: - Flip through all 75 pages of the PDF looking for Jane's highlighted name and see if the address is anywhere there. - Open each note individually and repeat the search for her name using the find feature, which at least lets me skip from instance to instance. Neither option is ideal, and having a snippet view of what's on the PDF page around my search results seems like a reasonable solution. Similar to how there's a preview at the start of a PDF file if you do any markups to it, but for search results, perhaps? Hoping I made that understandable. Thanks!
  10. Hi All, Just seen the way Annotate PDF puts Cover Page showing what annotations made. Is this really a benefit to the End User? It seems to me I am just usually eager to get to the information. Cheers, Pablo.
  11. I am using the Evernote app on my iPhone to save documents into my Evernote notebook. When I photograph two or more pages for one note, the app creates a note which is one image of the several pages. Is there a way to make the note I create have breaks between the pages, so that when I print a note, it is not seen as one loooooong page? (I want to avoid making a separate note for each page.)
  12. I have a lot of pdf files with annotations from other pdf software, mainly adobe reader. While searching for text inside pdf files works great, searching for annotations doesn't work.
  13. As a student I have tons of powerpoint presentations as PDF files. In such a PDF file there is often some really important pages with charts or tables or something. Now it would be great if one could create a new image note from one pdf page so that one doesn't have to search for this page every time. The images could also just be placed inside the same note, which also has the pdf attachment. Manually doing this is just too time consuming.
  14. Hello. There is a bug during import of OneNote notebooks featuring notes with PDF attachments. The screenshots here tell the story. In OneNote when you insert a PDF it includes not just the PDF file itself (which can be re-extracted) but also an inline rendered version. This is an incredibly useful way to organize PDFs, since you get the best of both worlds. You can see a preview inline, and know that if you ever need to get the original PDF back out again in the future it's right there. I'm hedging my bets on OneNote by making sure I can get back to Evernote some day if I ever need or want to, and today Evernote will not retain the embedded PDF. It only retains the inline rendered version. Without Evernote's ability to keep the original .PDF available converting back will be painful or impossible. I have hundreds and hundreds of PDFs embedded this way so manually extracting them before converting back to Evernote is not viable. Please find a way to preserve PDF files during OneNote import. This issue has also been discussed on this forum thread. Everynote Skipping Some of the Attachment in Onenote During Import
  15. I would like to be able to annotate/markup a pdf (or pic, too) in a note AND edit the note simultaneously. Example: I'm annotating pdf in the Evernote pdf tool, yet when I click back on the note to type something there *while* editing the pdf I lose the pdf being open, so I have to reopen, find my place, continue reading/annotating. Currently, the 2 workarounds I've found, which are quite time consuming: A. New Pdf (1) open PDF on computer, (2) edit with computers PDF editor, (3) save markups/highlights/notes/etc as a new PDF on desktop, (4) add edited PDF to note, (5) delete original PDF from note, (6) delete PDF from desktop... phew! B. useWord MS (1) open PDF in Evernote editor, (2) open a blank word doc, (3) edit PDF in Evernote, take notes on word doc, (4) save PDF changes, (5) cut & past word doc text to note, (6) spend next 30min reformatting all outlines and bullets that "blow up" cutting & pasting from MSWord into Evernote... phew!! Please add this feature? 8-) Love Evernote-- love the team behind it. Thanks for all your hard work! What you do is helping me better organize and complete my PhD research... thank you!!!
  16. Handwrite on .pdf

    I have a .pdf and I would like to handwrite notes on the .pdf. Is that possible? How? Thank you!
  17. Please include notes that comprise only a single PDF in the "related notes" scan. As an academic, I would like my library to be thematically interconnected, but when I drop a PDF into Evernote, it's ignored by the "related notes" feature. I appreciate that there may be an overhead involved in scanning a big PDF, but hopefully this would be a once-only cost. Devonthink provides this sort of functionality, and it would be great to see Evernote do the same.
  18. Using the Android version of Evernote, I can't click and open attached PDFs. The PDF shows as an attachment in the note, but does not interact to clicks with the mouse or touches with the touch screen. This is on a Samsung Chromebook Pro I know I can use the Web version, but I really don't want to because I would like offline support and really need ink annotation of PDFs, which isn't well supported in the Web version.
  19. script EN titles to PDFs?

    Hello, I have about 500 EN notes each containing a pdf. I would like to rename the pdf file with the title of the EN note. Is there a way to script this, or another way besides doing it by hand? thank you Joe
  20. There is no simple way to print notes with PDF's in them on a Mac. Can you please add better print features for Mac users? Maybe a print icon next to the save as/annotate/quick look at the top of the PDF's or maybe a right click on the title to print option? I'm a Realtor and I like keeping all my files in Evernote but not being able to print them with ease makes my job a lot harder.
  21. Is there any way to see a PDF automatically expanded within a note? It's obviously reading it since you can see a thumbnail on the card view, but I really need to be able to see PDF's within the note for meetings. Just checking to see if I missed some setting somewhere? Thanks.
  22. Just a semi-quick question. When I attach scanned documents as pdf's (and I am a premium subscriber) how long does it take for Evernote to index it? Today was the first time that I used this feature and it seems to be taking some time, which is why I ask. I have no problem waiting, I just want to know the limit so I know when it's a problem. Many thanks!
  23. Hi, I read the instruction but it didn't follow what I saw. Please give me a guide! Thanks in advance!
  24. I've been enjoying the Mac Evernote's ability to view PDFs as inline images (right click a PDF in a note and choose view inline instead of view as attachment). The problem I'm having with Evernote is that when I do a keyword search to find a note most of my results are all the PDF books I've added to my collection. As far as I can tell there is no way to have Evernote skip these notes in my search results. God forbid you add a dictionary PDF to your collection! Is there any way to tell Evernote to skip specific notes, notebooks or filetypes? Any way of filtering out results using keywords? If not please consider adding a feature request for: Note Setting that has a checkmark to EXCLUDE this note from keyword searches beyond the note title. For now I'm going to delete the PDF books I've added. ;( thanks, Stephen
  25. hi, i would like to take the pdf's filename (taken from the url) as the note's title. it is very annoying that i have to manually select the url's filename-part, copy it and then insert it in the notetite field in webclipper. this makes more sense for me than naming the note after the domainname, the way webclipper is doing it (e.g. "PDF -"). so webclipper truely is able to get the whole url, then is should be possible to take only the filename-part (using some regex magic or sth.). i understand that getting pdf's meta information or title description could be hard to get, but the filename of the pdf is even better then naming after the domainname. i want to request the described feature for further development. a better naming for clipped pdf-notes could be possible. best regards diemo
