Sailor_SFBay 2 Posted March 17, 2013 Share Posted March 17, 2013 Greetings, Brand new user of the Evernote application for Windows Desktop. Things are not working as I expected, so I need to see where or what I'm misinterpreting. I followed the instructions in "Getting Started with Evernote for Windows Desktop." In section two, "Create & Edit a Note," I attached a photo to the note I had just created. I did the "attach" function using drag and drop, as follows: I opened Windows Explorer and navigated to a folder on my computer which has photos. With the Evernote for Windows Desktop, still open from creating the note, I dragged the filename for the photo into the note. What I expected is that this photo would now appear within the note. I don't see it. However, in the "Note List" portion of the home screen, the photo appears (but only when in "snipit" view. The photo is indeed "attached" to the note, even though it does not appear "IN" the note. I was able to export the attachment, using "Save Attachments" back to another folder which I created for Evernote exports. And, somewhere along these steps of poking around, the photo (or attachment) disappeared from the note altogether! So, I went through the tutorial steps again, creating a second note and dragging a photo from the Windows Explorer file list into the note. Voila! This time it appears within the note! Probably I did something slightly different in my second attempt to follow the tutorial steps, but I don't know. Other than "If at first you don't succeed, try again," is there something else that I can learn from this experience? Cheers,David Link to comment
