    Do you have to manually drag all your current digital documents (just sitting in a folder in 'my documents' currently) into evernote and manually add more as you have more or is there a way for evernote to automatically grab new documents?

    The answer depends on several factors, including whether you are dealing with existing or new documents, the type of document and the location. In general, check the documentation for directions on using any of the following:

    * scan directly to EN
    * drag and drop
    * add a Mac service and then right click a document
    * print into EN
    * email into EN
    * cut and paste
    * use the web clipper
    * take a picture

    You could use scripting: for example, AppleScript snippet to add a file to Evernote

    Code:
    tell application "Evernote"
    activate
    create note from file aFile notebook "aNotebook"
    end tell
    
    Get/Write an Applescript to process an entire directory, add one file at a time to Evernote and then move out the file to another directory. Attach this AppleScript to a calendar event which repeats everyday and it will clear out your inbox directory automatically.

    Hazel and FastScripts are two apps which make this sort of automation easier.
