(Archived) Can't drag between Mac Outlook and Evernote



I simply want to drag an email attachment (e.g. a powerpoint deck) directly from Mac Outlook onto an Evernote note


Remarkably in this day and age, this doesn't seem to be possible 


My workaround is to drag the attachment onto the desktop, and then drag it from the desktop onto the note, but that process interferes with the workflow. I've read several workarounds from others e.g. dragging the attachment onto the Evernote icon on the Mac dock creates a new note with the attachment embedded into the note. Close, but no cigar.


Does anyone know if this is on Evernote's radar?

Outlook to Evernote won't work in Windows either,  without a stopover on the desktop - but Evernote doesn't share its radar.  There is an Outlook extension (in Windows at least) to clip emails directly,  which will also clip the attachments,  or you cold forward the email to your Evernote account address - same result.  If Outlook supports a suitable rule, you could automatically forward all emails with attachments to Evernote (NB there's a daily maximum and the upload limit to consider).  Otherwise we'll have to wait and see...
