I made an inbox (Evernote Inbox) folder on my PC desktop.  I went into Evernote tools and selected it as my Import folder.  I moved some PDFs to that folder, but they are not coming into Evernote, even after a sync.  I'm new to this.....any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong? Thanks.

You should look in your activity log (Help / Activity Log) for clues as to what might be going awry. I'd suggest moving the files elsewhere temporarily, then moving them back, so whatever is going wrong will be more recent in the log (if there are any entries for the problem).

Hi and welcome to the forums !


Quit and restart EN and your import folder should be recognized and your files imported. 

Check out the Getting Started Guide or Knowledge Base. View user Manuals: Windows, Mac or Android.
Still doesn't work? Submit a support request here.

I think I found the problem. I had another inbox that somehow was in a hidden directory.  Odd how it ended up there.  But when I deleted it and restarted the process, I got it working. Thanks for the suggestions.
