How To Automatically Export Evernote To PDF For Lawyers
PDF can be created as a "read only" document that cannot be edited in any way without leaving an electronic footprint. PDF meets all legal requirements in a court of law. It also has high compression, and requires no expensive software to view, as the software is free.
Document security is always a concern to lawyers, and PDF document security meets all legal security requirements by requiring a password at the document level. Then the document can be freely shared without fear of unauthorized viewing. Of course you must always create a strong password.
Why do lawyers use Evernote?
One feature where Evernote is currently lacking is the ability to export your Evernote notes to PDF files. Evernote's security is good, but when you share a note, you put the document's contents at risk. With PDF, the encryption is strong, and the documents are secured from unauthorized access. In the next chapter, we will take a look at the top 3 choices that lawyers currently have to export Evernote notes to PDF, and how you can have ALL of your Evernote notes automatically exported to PDF without any hassle at all.
Top 3 Evernote to PDF choices
This feature allows you to manually print each individual file to a PDF document. This means that each time you wish to print a file to PDF, you must open the individual document, open printer settings, change the printer you wish to use from your default printer to an option titled “Save to PDF," browse to a folder to save the PDF document in, and then finally click Print. Then to resume normal printing from your printer, you have to change your default printer back to your normal printer. This can be very time-consuming and inefficient when dealing with a large number of documents—hundreds or even thousands of documents could take a very long time to convert.
2. Adobe PDF
This is even more trouble than the above method as it consists of copying and pasting Evernote notes to a new PDF in Adobe Acrobat. You can also have Adobe export Microsoft Word to PDF, but again, you must manually export your Evernote notes to Word format, then use Acrobat to export the file into PDF format. Too much trouble!
CloudHQ automatically converts Evernote notes to PDF files through replication, and then stores the PDF files in a separate cloud storage account such as Dropbox, Box, OneDrive, Google Drive, etc. It's so simple, all you do is set it and forget it. CloudHQ runs in the background (in the cloud, you don't even have to be online) and remains completely invisible to the user so that when you are working, you will not be interrupted.
Here's a quick example of how it works:
As a lawyer, you use Evernote in your daily tasks. You also use Google Drive as your law firm cloud storage for documents, photos and other files. But you need to transform your Evernote notes to PDF files. So you install cloudHQ and set up a sync pair between Evernote and Google Drive. During the process, you will be asked which formats you want your files exported in (see photo below). You need to check PDF.
