My own note is "View only"

Recommended Posts


created a series of screen grabs and then merged them.

Having done that, I find that the merged note is "View only".

I can find no way to allow the note to be edited, (which I would kinda like to do, it is my note after all!)

Any thoughts?

I was hoping to have a workaround around this. 

All my notes in penultimate , scannable get auto synced in EN but when i review it I want to add my thoughts / change the subject from the default , merge it with other notes etc, which is not allowed and is frustrating at times. 

Request the dev team to address the matter

Anybody found any sustainable solution?


 It makes no sense they made it read only, in an app that is all made for editing..

 also they don’t let you know and it’sa bad surprise when needing to make changes.

 It’s absurd that they decide it’s read only and we have no option to make it editable… 


 This wasn’t happening previously. i think they changed the note format or the images format, i see HTML stuff while Evernote didn’t finish to load the images from the sketch.

Are you asking for screen garbs (first post in this thread) or Penultimate content (second post) ?

You better read before you ask for a "solution".

My screenshots made with the helper are all editable. Penultimate content is not, and this has been answered in your other post about the subject.
