How to save a few pages from a PDF?


Recommended Posts

Thanks. So no way to collect pages from the PDF in one EN note without using another app to extract the desired pages first?

EN should consider the possibility of creating a note by selecting specific pages from a large (and mostly irrelevant) PDF document.

OTOH can EN be active from inside a PDF editor app, as a plugin for example?

Hi.  If you can copy and paste the paragraphs / pages you want,  then just start a new note and paste away - but the chances are that isn't going to work.

Plan B would be to download and edit the content to extract individual pages as separate files,  then save them to one or more Evernote notes.  Evernote isn't an add-on for a PDF editor,  just a place you can store files,  or bits of files for future analysis or reference...

Hi and thanks! That's another way indeed (good point about the OCR). I could also clip the screen (whole or some parts) directly from the pdf viewing app (browser ou dedicated pdf viewer) and save these clips as a note (losing the text search capability unless EN can do OCR automatically) but again I would prefer a more direct approach as I do that often. Thanks again !
