Screenshot into an existing note


Recommended Posts

Is it possible to add a screenshot to an existing note?  I figured out how to take a screenshot and have it added to a new note.  I want to add 2 screenshots to the same note but can't figure out how.  Is this possible?

Thanks

The process is device specific - what device/platform do you use58e40841dae71_ScreenShot2017-04-04at1_55_02PM.png.8fdc4e3147c017534b0aa3596a82c22c.png

On my Mac, I can just right click where I want to insert a screenshot

I also grab screenshots, saved to my desktop or Evernote Helper
I can just drag them into a note

In Windows I can either merge the original note with my new screen shot note,  or I can take a screen shot to the desktop and treat the file like any other image and drag it to the original note anywhere I choose.

Or I can take a screen shot to the clipboard (Win+Shift+S to activate the screen clipper, then hold down the Ctrl key while dragging to choose the Clipboard destination), and Ctrl+V to paste it into the current note at the current cursor location.

Win+Shift+S does nothing when I try it. And I don't see it listed here: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209004807

Is this a custom shortcut? If not, what's the context in which you're using it? Globally in Windows or with EN Windows app active?

Hi.  I believe that's the screencap default shortcut from Tools > Options > Shortcuts - I changed my key combination because of conflicts.  It only works when Evernote is running.

In addition to what gaz said, right click on the Evernote notification icon, and look for the Clip Screenshot entry.

Pre Win 10, the default was Win+PrtScn, but with Win 10, Windows has taken over that combination, so Evernote switched the default to Win+Shift+S.

Ah that explains it. I'm on Win 7.

In Mac 7.5 the "Capture Selection from Screen" appears to be missing from the right-click menu within a note (see below). I can't find it anywhere else. I use it all the time so this is a bummer. Clicking "Import Image" freezes Evernote for me. Does anyone know if "Capture Selection from Screen" has been moved? Thanks.

You might check the settings in Apple > System Preferences878151486_ScreenShot2018-09-26at08_14_15.png.9ee0c84a548e875e6e4be73986cc4c44.png

I just checked our bug backlog and this issue was reported by our internal testers. Unfortunately, It appears there was a change in Mojave that broke the functionality, so it was removed. I don't have information on whether another option will be implemented.

Saving screenshots for using them in other programs seems to be a real hassle in Evernote (Windows version):

Step 1:  Right click on Evernote icon to start "Clip Screenshot"

Step 2:  Click and drag to clip a portion of the screen

Step 3: Evernote opens the screenclip in an annotation window (which i don't need every time)

Step 4: Click on X to close the annotation window

Step 5: Open Evernote and navigate to Inbox folder

Step 6: Open screenclip note

Step 7: Right click on screenclip to save it on my desktop

Why are so many steps needed when using Evernote's screen capture tool?

Not related to the original topic. However: Tools / Options / Clipping : uncheck "Launch Annotate after screenshots"

Wow, thank you and sorry for my off topic question.

You're welcome, and no problem. Better to have a good answer for an accidentally off-topic post than to have no answer at all. Cheers.
