After Skitch was retired for Windows, I went looking for a better screenshot tool. In the end, I just found old archived installation files of Skitch and kept them because I liked its easy functionality so much. I just found out that Evernote has a Snapshot tool just today from right clicking on the system tray icon. It has all the functionality of Skitch except the easy drag and drop tab that skitch has. I would love for the annotation window to automatically allow drag and drop of the images. I know you can save the image, close the window, open the note itself, zoom into the image, and drag and drop but thus lies the problem. One step became almost 3-4. I don't mind that now I have to save images in the notebook in order to use them but with Skitch, it saved these images temporarily and that was awesome to use to paste things into email easily and paste things into support forums like this easily.
With a multiple monitor setup using 'Capture Previous Snapshot Area' on a secondary or tertiary monitor results in a snapshot (with the same dimensions as previous snapshot) of the primary monitor. Is this a feature or a bug? I've remedied this by moving the menubar in mac system settings to my prefered monitor for screengrabs, but it seems like a workaround that might not work for all users.
Bear with me for this explanation: I've been using Evernote heavily at work to take notes, but I often don't remember what happened in meetings when I type up notes -- at least until I look up the notes and refresh my memory. So I decided to try taking notes by hand (different brain process) and storing them in Evernote. I wrote up notes in a small (Moleskine-like) notebook, then created a snapshot note (Note A) of the page using the Evernote app in my iPhone, synced Evernote, then opened the Evernote app in my Windows laptop. I did a search for a unique word in the handwritten notes and the note popped up, with several occurrences of the word highlighted. I then changed the title of the note and typed in some more information. Then I tried to search within the note for that same unique word. Not found. Repeated the general search for the word, which had previously turned up highlighted occurences in the image of the page of notes. Now, the search did not reveal the word at all! I repeated the process of creating a snapshot note of the same page (Note B ), and once again a search on that word turned up that note with the word highlighted in the image of the handwritten page. This happened pretty soon after syncing from phone to the laptop app. A day later, search still does not reveal the word in the image in Note A, but it does reveal it in Note B, which ONLY contains the image. I can only conclude that the act of adding typed information to the snapshot note somehow broke the OCR index. This seems like a bug. Can anyone enlighten me? I won't make the shift to handwritten notes if they aren't somewhat searchable, and I don't want to have to constrain myself to only what's handwritten. I expect to regularly have things to add after I've taken the photo of the note and categorized it.
