solved Can't edit PDF in Evernote using Preview - am I doing this right?

Recommended Posts

hey guys!

So I am just starting to actually use Evernote in a responsible  way   😇. If I open a PDF in preview using the eye icon on the PDF image.png.1b58746c619ae2abadbbf100460c7769.png and press CMD+S to save, it offers me a place to save it.

Expectation is that open in a pdf viewer/editor (like preview) and edit and press Save and it saves back to the file in the note. I am expecting this behavior based on posts in Evernote for Windows and Mac.

You are using the Mac Quick Look viewer to see the PDF
Try right clicking to open the PDF761749742_ScreenShot2020-05-12at7_59_33PM.png.cff64ce308e75937cb9b04bd882dedf8.png

I do that too. But when I press Cmd+S, I get this - which informs me the file is not saving back to evernote.

Agreed, the updated PDF is saving to the Download folder
Just to check, use the File > Save menu1131875625_ScreenShot2020-05-12at8_14_36PM.png.eb30e67c3909e733b579dff19cffc580.png

Are you using current versions of Evernote and Preview?

Tried using "Save" in the menu, still brought up save location box.

And, yes, 10.15.4 Catlina and Preview version 11.0 (999.4)

and Evernote is the App Store version but it is 7.14 as well - this is what I got on the app store version - version 7.14 (458265 App Store)

 

Sorry about the delay in response, I have an extension that prevents me from using the reply box that I had to troubleshoot.

@DTLow - do you have the App Store version on Mac or a direct download? I assume you don't have the same PDF saving issue right?

No problem with PDF editing/saving

Yup, so It is going to be the App Store version because that is sandboxed to some extent. Already opened support ticket. Thanks!
