Send Documents to Evernote Quickly

Working with it today I was kind of came across a new functionality that’s existed before but I tweaked it a bit to work more with how I process information. Basic Evernote functionality provides the ability to import files into your notebooks for easy management. By default Evernote will import PDF’s, images, text files and audio files. You can import folders or files as needed or have Evernote monitor a specific folder and automatically import files from that folder. I decided to combine an earlier tip on customizing your right-click “Send To” function with this Evernote import function and see how it works.

All I need to do to send a file into Evernote now is to right-click on a file that Evernote will read and use my customized send-to routine to in essence send it directly to Evernote. Expand Your Brain with Evernote. I like the Evernote initiative, though I have still problems using it myself.

I use Firefox on MacOSX, and since Firefox doesn`t offer integration with OsX services, i have to rely on the web clipper to import formatted content into Evernote. The web clipper is SLOW. Much slower, in fact, than using the Google Toolbar/Send to Gmail feature, and emailing myself the same content to gmail. In fact, i have a Gmail "Database" account which handles all this content. Guess what, this Gmail database of mine has 7gigs of space, no limitation of ammount of data i can upload each month (like the Evernote account has), and i can download it to my desktop Mail client anytime, and use that as a backup! So, evernote is out for grabbing contents from the web for me. For creating notes by myself on my mac, I resort to Textedit and OmniOutliner. The only problem is for notes that need to be edited many times from many places. So, IMO, Evernote still needs a bit of maturing.
