Clip screenshot does not work when print preview window is open


Recommended Posts

Hi,

Can anyone confirm this as a bug and if it has already been registered? If you do a print preview of a note, then try to do a clip screenshot, the clip does not work (it looks like it has, but no note is created). This is on EN for Windows 6.4.2.3788 (303788).

Yep - I clipped the open print preview window - but while it works to drop a copy to my desktop (see below),  it doesn't create a note!  Well,  fiddle!  That's unusual.  I ran a sync to make sure it hadn't sneakily added the copy to my online notes,  and I'm viewing in All Notes,  so I would have seen it added to another notebook...  I believe you have a real, genuine,  100% bug - though I'm pretty certain it hasn't been registered.  Why on earth would anyone want to clip a print preview of another note?  Good catch though..  :)

First of all, thanks, @Speedie, for alerting me to the existence of the Print Preview feature, which I hadn't even known about! Second, I can confirm what you've discovered. Third, though, I'm not sure I'd call it a bug--it is a pretty unusual thing to want to do, and I don't know if any other software can do it either. Who knows what kind of conflicting subprocesses may be involved? With Win+PrtScrn available, and the estimable Windows Snipping tool, there are at least other options handy.

Hmmn.  Actually,  while Evernote's screenshot feature may not work in this situation,  Windows does have some easy options - it is possible to capture the active window -even if it's Print Preview - with PrtScn... http://www.howtogeek.com/226280/how-to-take-screenshots-in-windows-10/ and paste from there into your note,  or save as a file (via third-party software) and attach that.
