"Save PDF to Evernote" from print dialog has stopped working


Recommended Posts

I am fairly certain that the option to "Save PDF to Evernote" has worked at some point with Evernote 10, but I noticed the other day that is is not working right now. At least not on my machine. I'm wondering if someone can verify whether this is working for them or if this is a feature that has yet to be "restored" in v10.

I could have sworn that this had already been working in v10. When I have the Legacy Evernote and v10 app installed at the same time, Legacy seems to take over evernote:// links as well as the "Save PDF to Evernote" features. What I'm trying to figure out is if reinstalling Legacy has messed up something had had been working just fine in v10.

I found I had to restore it in System Preferences>Keyboard>Shortcuts>App Shortcuts....Save PDF to Evernote.  I set it to command-E.

I don't seem to have an option here where I can add a shortcut.

As best as I can determine, the Save PDF to Evernote option only seems to work with Evernote Legacy. If I remove the option from the PDF menu, the only way it comes back is if I launch Evernote Legacy.

Thanks Guy, but this does nothing at all for me, just can't get Evernote back in the print/pdf menu 

Anyone from Evernote care to comment??

Hi.  It's historically unlikely that Evernote will respond to an individual query here. Try raising a Support ticket for that level of personal service.

If my experience is any indication, you'll need to install Evernote Legacy; that seemed to restore the "Save PDF to Evernote" option to the print PDF menu as shown in my original screen shot. As best as I can discern, that feature only seems to work with Evernote Legacy for now.

I was all set to email support about this but there is apparently a 10 DAY WAIT FOR A REPLY? What is the point....

Yet another broken feature that keeps me living in the legacy version of Evernote.

Sympathies,  but there are few others out there who have raised their issue and received a ticket number.  They're in a queue and will get support as soon as the guys who are currently freezing their assets off in Texas USA (no power) can warm up something to talk with...

Glad the issue has already been officially reported!

 

Are the Evernote folks in Texas? Oh man....I feel so bad for them. Here in central NY we're like "whatever, maybe I need a coat today....."

I'm in the UK and it's cold,  wet and we have flood warnings... but the pictures from the US are downright scary.  I think we're both pretty lucky to still have easy access to power!

Was in contact with support recently. They confirmed at least part of them is located in Texas, and are severely hit by the rolling grid shutdown used to keep the electrical grid running.

Since a queue will build while they sit in the dark, they probably communicate a conservative respond time at the moment.

Well, maybe we should switch to a software company from a first world country next time ... I like stuff coming from Bangalore, for example.

Solution:  email to your private EN email address, e.g. using the "Share" feature.

Optionally, edit subject line as follows,

Subject:      THE NOTE TITLE HERE@NOTEBOOKNAME#TAGNAME1#TAG2#TAG3

For simplicity I created a Contact called "Email to Evernote" with my EN-specific address. This shows up as one of the default options in the Share Menu.

And... of course... as soon as I wrote that reply I tried the print function on another email - and BOOM!  It worked as it did before.  Annoying for sure.

There seem to be several issues with v10 on the Mac that can be improved / resettled by simply quitting EN, and restarting the Mac.

Maybe you remember if you did a restart - that could explain why a missing option suddenly returned.

I was trying to print an email (from apple mail app on Mac) to Evernote.  I restarted mail - no difference with the specific email.  I restarted Evernote - no difference with the specific mail.  Then I restarted the computer - still could not print out that specific mail to Evernote.  What I then did was forward the mail to Evernote (which did work), wrote my first message above, and then tried to print a DIFFERENT email to Evernote - and that worked.

You can create a new print workflow by editing the PDF print menu.

Briefly: 

cmd-P

click on PDF

select "edit menu"

navigate the finder to the application folder

select Evernote

You can rename this Print Workflow, if you wish, e.g. "Print PDF to Evernote"

That's it. Now you have a new menu option for PDF to Evernote.

------------------

If you don't want a PDF, don't forget that you save an email or webpage to a new note by:

cmd-A. (to select all)

ctrl-cmd-V  (to create a new note)
