Save your scanned files in PDF, JPG or PNG format


Hubertmurray

Idea

 

When using the Evernote integrated camera scanner, it saves the document as a PNG file. I would like to have the option of saving it as a PDF file. I'm using android and downloading scannable from the play doesn't seem to be an option for me.  

If you take/scan photos and save them in image format (PNG), you can access your Evernote account in a Desktop and right click on any image and select "Convert Note into PDF". After doing this, you will create a new note with all the content in a single PDF file. But, it would be much better if the option was available via my mobile device. It would be a much better option if Evernote could have this function itself as opposed to an external app. 

Is there any sign to develop this feature in future?

Good day, I know this is an old post, but I was hoping someone would know... I can't seem to find this "convert note into PDF" item.  Has this already been deprecated or am I just a doofus that can't find it?  I'm running 6.17.6.8292

Используйте правильные инструменты для правильной цели. Если вы на Android, используйте CamScanner. Или Adobe Scan.

Можно иметь много разных приложений для разных целей, а можно все удобные функции включить в Evernote.

Any updates on this? I'm using Scanner Pro in the meantime; would be great to have this built in to Evernote.

It’s really funny isn’t it that for years the best work around for this missing vital feature is to simply use one of many competitors products that actually do scanning the way the user wants. I scan in apple notes for instance in order to get scanned .pdf files into Evernote. 
Add that to the long list of missing features, at least this one was carried over from the Classic Evernote, that couldn’t do it either.
