ScanSnap Evernote Edition: How To NOT Scan To Evernote

If you have the ScanSnap Evernote Editon, what do you do if you have a document that you want to scan to your computer but you do not want to save it in Evernote?

The ScanSnap Evernote Edition is a special Evernote-ized edition of the Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500. It has tight integration with the Evernote software, and by default anything you scan with it will be saved to Evernote and uploaded to the service.

What if, for security reasons or otherwise, you don’t want that?

You’re in luck – there’s a setting that will stop it from uploading to Evernote. Here’s how to find it.

1) Find the icon for ScanSnap Manager Evernote Edition. It will be in your Menu Bar on the Mac or your Notification Area if you’re on Windows.

2) When you click it, you will see different scanning options, and in the top left corner there will be a gear icon. Click that.

3) Choose Settings… from the menu.

Once youre in the settings screen, there will be a checkbox for Save copies of scanned files to:. Check that and then choose the folder you want to save your scanned document to.

Underneath, there is another checkbox for Do not send scanned files to Evernote. Check that.

Choose Settings

You can close the ScanSnap Manager Evernote Edition window now.

Now when you scan, your document will be scanned to the folder you specified in the settings and is not uploaded to Evernote.

If you want future documents scanned to Evernote, don’t forget to uncheck that box when you’re done.
