Standard Export Formats


Phi87

Idea

I interact with many people who are not cloud or collaboration tool Friendly.  I understand why Evernote would want to share notes by having the other person log in.  let's face it though, there are many that aren't going to do that.   I would really like to be able to export and send something to someone without it being in a strange format or having them have to click on a link.   Word, PDF, even google docs would work just fine for an export.   If you want to be the platform of choice, open and easy is the way to go.

Evernote also allows you to share a note by sending a url that opens in a browser; no log in required
as in   https://www.evernote.com/l/AAqBy_iv_y9FTo5TmWxpVMc5sLbYCFVWEmo

I can also email a copy of my note.  
Evernote's native format is html which is fairly standard; 
I could also convert to pdf - its easy to convert on my Mac and I use it for any static data

But not so easy on Android, which is where we are here. However, a few months ago a brilliant guy named @DTLow offered this suggestion about a free service to convert from Evernote Android to PDF:

The whole thread would be worth looking at, @Phi87.

Yes, I know you can send someone a link but that again is another step.  It opens in the browser and the receiver needs to know how to save it or print or whatever.   I just want to send the doc in a standard format directly.   No muss no fuss.

I’m not an Android User; just wondering what non-standard format is being emailed?

Regardless, PDF would be my choice - it’s ubiquitous and does a good job of preserving the data and formats; attachments would be lost though

It doesn't email any.  It emails you a chat request to join evernote and collaborate on the doc.   that is unless you use the public link.  

Confirmed; you would have to send the public url - I edited my post to make this clear

Instead of work chat, I would use the email function.  Documented here  https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313328-How-to-share-notes-via-email
