"Always show PDF documents as attachments" setting


Idea

Feature request: Please bring back the "Always show PDF documents as attachments" setting for all PDFs.

My facebook post (Evernote Community):
"I'm wondering, if I am the only one who is missing the "Always show PDF documents as attachments" option. Having hundreds of PDFs stored in evernote, I do not want to set all of them one by one to "show as attachment". 😰 Support tells me, they are still unsure, if the are going to implement this function to V10."

In addition: Missing this feature is for me the main reason, why I'm still using the Legacy version.

Best regards
Matthias

I've seen the complaint several times - maybe folks regard this as a bug rather than a new feature,  but a lot of votes (or contacts with Support) will stress that it is an important feature to get back...

Totally agree that this needs to be reinstated. I am still using Evernote Legacy in most cases so that I have this feature as it is essential to the way I structure a lot of my work related notes.

You would think it would be an easy feature to implement, and an approach of maintaining features of the `old' version prior to adding new would be a good approach in my opinion.

Yes, please bring this feature back! I use some notes to hold/organize multiple PDFs, and it's distracting to see them expanded in the note. As others have mentioned, trying to go through one-by-one to show as an attachment is incredibly time-consuming.

I've not tried this,  but it works for images - does it help to add a table to your note and paste the PDF file into a cell in the table?  Obviously not a cure,  but it may save headaches while Evernote sorts it out...

Nice idea. Works perfectly. I can add comments about the pdf in the table as well so it's quite a good structure. I'd still the ability to change the default but this could be a useful workaround in some circumstances. Many of my pdfs are gathered using the webclipper so it doesn't help there.

Cheers - Thanks to @Evernote_E from prompting the thought! I'm still using Legacy (I may have mentioned this somewhere...) and until now I've always had the full PDF or an icon.  In Legacy - I just tried it - this table layout gives you a nice panelled note with what amounts to a thumbnail of the PDF contents,  and as you say,  space above and below it to make notes or comments. (Or I guess I could leave a vacant cell next to it and add commentary). 

Quite pleased with myself.  I'll go around for the rest of the day with a smug smile now... 😊

Just tried your idea, @gazumped, and it works! Thanks for the tip! I've been using Legacy, but I'm slowly trying to venture out with v10.... Hopefully Evernote will reinstate the preferences option for PDFs, but this is a good workaround in the meantime. 🙂
