  1. I'm getting closer to beginning the substantial project of going paperless using my new ScanSnap scanner and Evernote. Most of the documents I'll be scanning are two-sided black-and-white documents that were highlighted by me. I have some questions on what the optimal ScanSnap settings might be. Looking at ScanSnap Manager... 1) The "Scan to Evernote (Document)" profile seems like it would be the logical starting point, right? What's the difference between this and the "Scan to Evernote (Note)" profile? It seems like the former creates a PDF and the latter creates a JPG? For purposes of Evernote, why would someone ever want to create a JPG instead of a PDF? Are there any advantages? 2) Under "Application > Application Settings..." there is a checkbox for "Convert to Searchable PDF". See...http://d.pr/i/bQumJ6. I assume selecting this option has it so that Evernote performs OCR instead of ScanSnap's software? Is such a setup preferable? (I see a separate "Convert to Searchable PDF" option under "File option > Select OCR". See...http://d.pr/i/ezk4HH. I assume selecting this option has it so that ScanSnap performs OCR instead of Evernote? Or am I just confused here?) 3) ScanSnap allows you to select an "Image saving folder" on your hard drive. See...http://d.pr/i/E7M5tq. If the document is being saved in Evernote, what reason is there to have an additional copy taking up space on your hard drive? Is there any way to turn this off? 4) Anyone have any tips for best practices for "File name format"? Here are the options that are presented...http://d.pr/i/bZ3n3T. 5) What "Image quality" level do folks recommend? Or do folks just go with automatic resolution? Here are the options that are presented...http://d.pr/i/DYiIxr. 6) Given that most of my documents are highlighted, I'm leaning towards setting the "Color mode" to "Color". Will this be okay? It's important to me that the highlighting I did in these documents, in yellow, is captured in these scans. 7) Is there any reason to select the "Reduce bleed-through", "Brightness", "Increase text contrast", or "Deskew by text on document" options? See...http://d.pr/i/NnPIsE. 8) What do folks recommend for "Compression rate"? Given the massive number of documents I'll be scanning, I want to be at least somewhat conscious of space, but I also don't want to have any issues with legibility. See...http://d.pr/i/6YYLqr. 9) Any other key settings that I didn't mention in the above that are worth paying mind to, including any related settings on the Evernote side of things? I'm all ears. Thanks in advance for your guidance and insights!
  2. I'm considering purchasing the Fujitsu iX500 ScanSnap Scanner for the main purpose of integrating it into my Evernote workflow. I'm sure there are many others out there with this setup. I'd be curious to hear about their experience, both the positives and the negatives, as well as any tips they have on which model to purchase, the optimal settings to select, etc.. (Speaking of, does anyone know the difference between the two models currently available on Amazon...https://www.amazon.com/Fujitsu-ScanSnap-Document-Scanner-PA03656-B305/dp/B01G3JYVYM?) Thanks in advance!
  3. I recently was able to get a decent scanner (snapscan s3100i) however for most of the 2nd half of 2013 I have had to use a Kaiser Baas KBA3034 Scanner. Although not new to evernote, I only really started using it seriously this year for business. I was disappointed to find that scanning with the kaiser baas scanner to PDF and importing to evernote resulted in notes that were unable to be searched on - even though I have a premium membership. If you are using this KB scanner and want to import into evernote, use JPG format on about 300dpi or a little lower. when imported into evernote scanned jpg files are able to be searched on. I
  4. Since there was some discussion in some of the other threads about scanning/photographing paper to convert it to digital format, I thought I'd create a thread for it to consolidate the posts in one place. At home, I use the Canon imageFormula P-150 (Mac version) which has direct scanning into Evernote. It can scan 15 ppm and scans both sides of the page at once so no duplexer is needed. It is also small and portable which is nice. I've used it for scanning everything from post cards and receipts to publishing contracts and mortgage papers. Well worth the investment.
  5. After successfully converting (and maintaining) our family's digital/analog recipe collection to Evernote (cross platform w/Android, Windows, Ubuntu, and iPad) I'm considering going after my old world filing cabinet. I use Ubuntu for my day-to-day and would love to connect with someone who is an Ubuntu user and went through the paper/scanning process to discuss workflow and pitfalls. Obviously I can use a Windows machine if I need to, or run Evernote on a virtual machine, or Wine... or use Everpad or Nixnote... If you are being successful at this, what scanner are you using (can be tricky in Ubuntu)? any other details about your success/failure are appreciated...
  6. I've been wanting to go paperless (mostly) for a few years now. Initially it seemed I'd have to spend at least $250 on a scanner with a sheet feeder and Evernote software, but the more I read it seems like you don't need specific software for Evernote if you can set up a "watch folder"? So I guess I'm wondering really if this is true or if the software for scanners that is specific to Evernote has any value add to it or if I can truly cross that off my list? Also, it seems like there's much more of a selection of scanners that have multi-sheet adf as part of an All-in-one printer/copier/scanner device. I actually have an All-in-One Epson but it's an older unit without ADF. It has a flatbed that I use right now for occasional scanning. But there seem to be a bunch out there for $100-150 or even less than $100. I know to some extent you get what you pay for, but since cost is definitely an issue with the budget I have, I'm wondering if there is anything that will work ok that is $100 or even less. One that I've seen is the PIXMA MX410. Some of these units state that they can do 2-sided printing, but don't specifically say 2-sided scanning, so I'm wonderin if I should just assume one implies the other? I think having one of these will actually motivate me to start my project of going paperless, as the hurdle of having to scan everything sheet by sheet is too much at this moment. Even with the convenience of a multi-sheet feeder, it's still going to take months getting my filing cabinet emtied out! :-/ Thanks for any words of advice and wisdom!
  7. Hello all, I'm a long time user of Evernote and a huge fan. I'm trying to start getting into the whole paperless thing and am looking to buy a scanner. I'm on the go a lot and need it to work with both Windows and Mac. I've seen and read reviews on the ScanSnap s1300 and the Doxie Go and like them a lot. Any thoughts between those two? Does any of you have them? What are your thoughts? What other scanners have you used? Thanks a bunch! Cesar
