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?
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.
