Davos119 1 Posted June 20, 2012 Share Posted June 20, 2012 I am finding that some of my PDFs in Evernote behave like attachments (like they would in something like Outlook) and some appear 'embedded', so the content of the PDF is immediately viewable as a note. I am a premium user and I have found that the 'attached' PDFs are not searchable, whereas the 'embedded' ones are. The thing I don't understand is how PDFs end up in Evernote in two different ways. I assume it might be something to do with the app that sends the PDF to Evernote, but I am wondering if I have any control, or if there is anything I can do about this? Here are a couple of examples of what I mean: This is the 'attached' PDF. I created it with CamScanner on my Andoid Phone, then opened it in NoteAbility on the iPad and highlighted the quote, then I used the 'Open in Evernote' function on the NoteAbility app. This is how it transferred to Evernote: I then opened the attached PDF, saved it to the Desktop, re-named it, and then sent it straight from the Desktop to the Evernote Windows app using the right-click menu. This is how it transferred: It's the same PDF. Obviously the second version is preferable, especially as it's searchable, and the other one isn't. Can anyone shed any light on why they're coming up differently? Cheers d Link to comment
