Maximising Send-to for Evernote13 Aug 2010
Do you use Evernote on Windows? Do you ever put files into Evernote notes? I’d like to share a little tip with you for making your life with files and Evernote bit easier.
By default at installation, Evernote adds an entry to the send-to menu. This means that when you right click on a file and the send-to menu is displayed, Evernote appears as an option in the menu. Selecting this will pop the file into a note in the default notebook. It is worth noting at this point that freemium users can only attach certain files (e.g. PDF, JPG) whereas premium users can attach any file type and there are some file size limits (which are larger for premium users).
Evernote also supports multiple watched folders. Files placed in a watched folder are automatically imported into Evernote, but you can also specify which notebook the file is to be attached to a new note in.
If you haven’t already guessed, the tip is simply to create some folder short cuts in your send-to menu for your watched folders. Setting these up means you are no longer confined to sending files directly to your default notebook - you can quickly send files to different notebooks.
