Several lines of written text disappear when exported to PDF

Recommended Posts


I use Evernote 10.68.3 on Mac.

I had to write a several-page report, and I chose to do it with Evernote because I really like the look of its typography and layout.
Once finished, I exported the note in PDF format.
And I realized that several lines of text had disappeared between page 1 and page 2.
I tried both ways of exporting, with the same result.
This is very annoying. Is this bug known?

Hi.  Evernote is note-taking software,  not a full-featured word processor.  If you need a specific layout it would be better to copy and paste pages into another app - Word or Google Docs or LibreOffice - and attach the output file to your note.  Do any editing in your WP software and save changes back to the attachment.  The export / print to PDF options for Evernote do need work,  but substantive fixes are unlikely to be available for the delivery of your report.

Sorry but my layout was not specific, it was simple text.

It was a simple note, I think Evernote is intended for taking notes, isn't it? I don't think it's normal for several lines of text to disappear when converted to PDF.
These were not blank lines, but several sentences of text that disappeared.

Evernote unfortunately has a lot of problems with PDF export (and with printing too!). I have reported several issues, some of them 3 months ago:

  • #3811711 / Spaces between words with different formattings are disappearing when exporting to pdf
  • #3817922 / EN 10.72.2 Win - print problems
  • #3871050 / EN 10.84.3 Windows, task info missing in pdf
  • #3871010 / EN 10.84.3 Windows, empty lines missing in pdf
  • #3871017 / EN 10.84.3 Windows, link colors missing in pdf
  • #3870956 / EN 10.84.3 Windows, divider lines missing in pdf
  • #3870882 / EN 10.84.3 Windows, table borders missing in pdf
