Creating Notes from .png Files - Mac/Win issue

Recommended Posts

Not sure whether to post here or Mac forum. I did submit a support ticket as well, but hoping someone may have a clue if there is a setting that is different. 

Currently, I use Evernote on both Windows and Mac.  I have a longarm sewing machine that I can grab a screenshot of every digital design and they are stored to a flash drive as a folder filled with .png files.  I add each of these .png to a notebook in Evernote where I can tag them for future sorting and use.  

The problem that exists is that in Evernote for Mac, I can select all of the .png files from the flash drive, drag and drop them on top of a folder in Evernote and Evernote will create a separate note for each and uses the file name to label the note. It strips off the file extension when naming.  (This is exactly what I want.)  

However, if I'm on my Windows box, I do the same process and Evernote creates one GIANT note that contains all of the images. The Windows version will only create a note and label it if I drag the .png over one at a time, however, even then when it names it, it keeps the file extension as part of the name. Is there anyway to have both versions function as the Mac version does?

Actually, it's dragging the photos to an Evernote notebook

You might get better results in Windows by dragging the files to an Evernote import folder
