Export PDF option missing from Evernote v10.1.7


Recommended Posts

Hey team, 

So I recently update to v10.1.7 of Evernote and was writing my notes as usually, when I notice I no longer had the option of exporting my note as PDF under the File tab on Windows 10. I was using v6 before the update and I enjoyed this feature quite heavily. Please advise on how to export my notes as a PDF in v10.1.7 now. Thanks in advance!

@sm788 Several users are installing the "legacy" version parallel to Evernote 10 to access functionalities that might be missing in version 10. If you can't find the export to PDF than you should consider installing such version in parallel. It is extremely easy to perform such installation.  Here is the link for the instructions: https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/360052560314?fbclid=IwAR2TNqp-eGRH3Ds8Vfu-CiKPjYolJzZ_keR9eWQaDahJ2GN-7hwn595zI8w&__s=bsetfdgzirbvqtopurph

Hi all,

As others have reported, after upgrading printing to pdf option is broken. I'm now on version 10.1.7 on macOS Catalina (Version 10.15.7) and the Export to PDF function is gone and Print as PDF produces a document with headings and no content. This is major, when will this be fixed please, or is there a workaround?

If this is not possible how can I go back to my previously installed version please, as this function is critical for my work.

Thanks in advance,

Chris

Problem is that when you try to export from print..it puts all content in only one page. Earlier versions werer easier to do that it worked.

I am also having this problem and I can't seem to find an answer or response from Evernote team.  I do not have the time, know-how or energy to be running parallel systems or even try to install an older version.  Please Help!

Here to bump this topic. I used to be able to right click on a note with photos and the entire note would convert to a PDF. This is a huge miss and I also dont have time to install older versions. Super frustrating that relied upon functionality is missing in an 'upgrade'.

Any news?  It is the only feature keeping me using Evernote Legacy (Version 7.14.1), a version that may not be perfect but had become part of my day to day, especially clipping from Chrome.

On my swiss knife I only use the corkscrew ...

Now they introduced screwed-caps. I have to get rid go my swiss knife, worthless.

Wait, there are other tools on my swiss knife. What a discovery !

P.S. For scanning and converting it into a pdf, EN is not even in my top 100 for THIS job. And for sure not by paying for Premium - there are plenty of free tools to do that specific job.

A lot of us like our swiss knife with a corkscrew. Not sure what the sarcasm is for. Evernote is not only a file cabinet, it has been focused on allowing users to easily capture content for a long time now.

The scanning experience is already good in my opinion, and I feel like it has improved with v10 on Android. I feel no need to use a separate app for scanning. Most people don't want hyperspecialized apps for every task. And it is important to be able to easily turn the result into a pdf format. It is the standard / most commonly used file format for document sharing.

People like to be dramatic about their complaints but I think it's ok if it helps Evernote become a better product

Comments like above are fairy telling, either people are really using an app for a purpose it was neither build for in first hand nor optimized (the EN scanner is in fact very weak in features and performance), or they are placing a misleading information about their real use of the app. The ability to scan something and export it as a pdf is for sure not a key function of EN, even if the app could be used to do this a a certain point in time. If you don‘t believe me, go to the EN web site and search for this „feature“ to be promoted in any way. Not there, no surprise.

Both approaches do not help to solve problems for yourself and other users in the forum, left alone develop the app further.

There have been quite a few issues raised on the forum about printing (which surely is a core feature). Once those get solved (sensible pagination etc) then it will be very easy to export to pdf using an external pdf printer (like primopdf) even if the original pdf export functionaility is not restored.

That is what makes it really annoying. One should at least be able to print to pdf, but even that doesn't work properly.

Yes, and some people liked it that way. Not everyone likes Evernote for the same reasons and features than you do. If they took away something you're using every day, you'd most likely be posting "WHY???" rather than "oh right, I'll just use an external app"

Works very well to scan documents IMO. Perhaps it doesn't suit your needs but I certainly do not feel the need for an external app for that purpose on Android. On iOs, I guess I would be using Scannable as it integrates very well with EN.

Please help us evernote team, we need to be able to export our notes in pdf properly. To me It is a basic function of your software !

Long time user of evernote, very disappointed that I can't print PDFs. I have all my medical and musical notes stored in one useful place, and now can't export PDF and print.what?

This is the most ridiculous product development I have ever experienced.

I'm so glad Evernote switched to this new buggy slow piece of javascript bundle that's the new apps. So they can deliver new features faster, right? Well I guess they forgot to tell us that they'd be removing 90 % of the useful features while leaving something as lovely as Work Chat. I mean I can't even create a note from the context menu in iOS. Half of my searches are either not returning anything, or returning incorrect results. Opening notes results in infinite loading indicators half of the time.. Laughable.

Oh well, Evernote was such a great product once.. I think it deserved another shot. Alas, I won't be coming back anytime soon. :(
