Hi Guys - for anyone else who has struggled to move all their note
taking to electronic format, this is how I managedf it....

How has everyone else managed this? Has one else tried electronics

I have done more less everything you said and I use Evernote.

Sometimes I'll retype my notes into Evernote or I'll scan in the sheet as a PDF and store it. It just depends.

I also used a digitizing pad called a Cyberpad, by Adesso. In truth, I
have not gone 100% electronic. I still use 8.5"x11" notepads, or
composition pads. Depending on the meeting, conference, or educational
setting, I find that using paper and colored pens are still superior to
most of the current note taking technology.

But, with that being said, I use OneNote, MSWord/OpenOffice, or a Wiki,
depending on the environment. Digital cameras (including video), phone
cameras and scanners work well for digitizing physical notes, and keeps
the colors, if you color code like I do. I rarely use a digital voice
recorder, but it is handy for some things.

Even as adept as I am with electronic media, going 100% electronic is
not necessarily an option at all times.
