Because you asked…
When you scan things to Evernote, is this time consuming? Do you scan it to a PDF file and attach the file? I’d be very curious as to what this process looks like for you. I tried with a manual the other day and it seemed to take forever, and I had to try several different ways to get it to work.
It’s fast and easy, I promise!
Listen to this post!
I use the app Scanner Pro on my iPod Touch, and in the settings I’ve selected to have it automatically upload to Evernote.
So, instead of opening the camera app, I open the Scanner app, but I snap a picture in just the same way. When I hit save, it automatically sends it over to Evernote, into my default notebook, as a note.
Now, when I’m using my printer to scan, there’s an extra step because it doesn’t send it to Evernote automatically. I scan it, then the file pops up in the Previewer on my laptop. Then I hit ‘print’ but instead of choosing to print directly, I select the option that says PDF and choose EVERNOTE instead. Then the file automatically becomes a note in my Evernote default notebook as a pdf. I have a video showing you how to print or save to Evernote, too.
I’ve written several pieces on using Evernote:
- Evernote for Homemaking Plans
- Paperless Planning Tip: Saving pdfs straight to Evernote
- Evernote Tips for Homeschool Moms
- How to Scan and Save Anything into Evernote
In fact, I even wrote a book on it:
