Three copies of pasted screenshots


Recommended Posts

I take a screenshot (power and home button). Then in the preview I click the share icon and copy it. Then I click done and choose to just delete it. This way I avoid having a bunch of screenshots in my photos.

I then open Evernote and paste it in a note.

IMHO this should work as well. And it is efficient.

Maybe just for learning if it makes a difference try the loop over camera roll, as I described. There are 2 effects: 1st it creates a "final" copy of the intermediate window from the screenshot. 2nd it uses a reserved area of memory, not the fluid "copy & paste".

This is not in search for efficiency, but for stability. v10 IMHO ist still a fragile product.

Same issue here on latest version. IPad Pro 10.5 - CMD+Shift 4 then paste back into Evernote produces 3 copies.

Have pasted the same image into Apple Notes and just got a single copy as expected, so this is not an iPad OS bug.

I am on 10.16 too.

No problem when using Readdle PDF expert new capture tool to paste in Evernote.

However I still do encounter the problem when using iPadOs screen capture tool to then copy the image and paste it in Evernote. Same problem exist when copying from LiquidText to paste in Evernote for example.

 

iPad M1, iPadOS 14.6

Just created this screen shot on my iPad Pro 10.5 running iOS 14.7.1 and EN iOS 10.16. Took the screenshot with iOS and without saving it to the camera roll hit „share“ in the screenshot view, selected EN and filed it without any changes to the default share dialogue.

If you go to the top and read the 2 initial posts by the thread owner, this is what this thread is about.

When I tried it now with EN iOS 10.16, it created a new note with exactly 1 copy of the screenshot as a png picture. Repeating the same on my iPhone created only 1 copy of the screenshot either. If I take this and compare it to the start of this thread, the initial problem posted is not existing any more in EN iOS 10.16.

There may be other situations with more copies, but then a new thread should be opened instead of hijacking this one.

Well, I can't agree here.  If we read the first two messages from mprogram,  copy / paste problem using screenshot method is reported, not using the sharing technique that is more complicated and more time consuming since drag n drop does not work.

You are right. I just reread the second posting.

I now did this and used copy instead of share, and it got me 3 pictures.

So you can simply use „Share to EN“ instead of copying. It creates a new note with a single copy of the screenshot and be done.

Try support again. Maybe it does not even make the „hot“ part of the backlog if there are no claims.

For my workflows it does not play any role. I just like to try stuff.

As a workaround I would save to the camera roll, and import it from there. It is then copied only once.

Personally I like to place pictures in tables - this works better from the camera roll as well.
