(Archived) Mac OS X 10.8.3 - Can I 'print' directly to an Evernote note?


Goffredo

Idea

Hi,

 

Evernote 5.0.7 on Mac OS X 10.8.3

 

Let's say I've just paid my gas bill online.  I'd like to add proof of my payment to my 'Unfiled' notebook in Evernote, where I would later on tag it as "Utilities" and "Receipt" and move it into a better location.

 

Right now, here is how I do it:

 

1) Hit 'Print' in my browser.

2) 'Destination' is already set to "Save as PDF", so I simply click on the 'Save' button

3) Figure out somewhere to save it on my desktop

4) Switch to Evernote

5) Skootch Evernote window over a little bit

6) Open a Finder window

7) Skootch Finder window over a little bit, and select the 'Desktop' folder

8) Drag the PDF from my Desktop folder onto Evernote

 

This would be much nicer if Evernote had its own "Send to Evernote as PDF" print destination.  For example, see my mockup.

Apparently something like this is possible per this thread:

 

http://discussion.evernote.com/topic/29021-save-pdf-to-evernote-on-mac/page-2#entry176300

 

However, I am not finding a "~/Library/PDF Services" folder on my machine, and before I go on a wild goose chase, I'm curious if there is a less hackish (i.e. natively-supported) way to do this.  If not, I would like to submit this as a feature request, please let me know how I can do this.

Hi. Welcome to the forums. I'd recommend switching from the appstore version to the direct download one. It is relatively quick and painless, and it will give you access to every feature available in Evernote, including print to Evernote. See this thread for directions:

Hello,

 

I'm a little confused.  You say to switch from the appstore version to the direct download version.  If I check on the AppStore, it shows version 5.0.7 updated Mar 29, 2013.  

 

When I go to the link you referenced, and in that message click on the link in Step 5 to download the latest version of the Mac client ("this is the home brew, not the Apple appstore one"), it takes me to http://evernote.com/evernote/index.php?file=EvernoteMac, which kicks off a download of Evernote_400995.dmg in the background, and has a "Get Evernote for Mac" button on the main webpage which, when clicked, takes me to the appstore version.

 

It's a little weird having a link that automatically downloads what I assume is the "home brew" version, and at the same time has a big green "Get Evernote for Mac!" button that appears to take me to the appstore version, so I wanted to make sure I understood this correctly.  I should NOT click "Get Evernote for Mac", since that launches out to the AppStore version, and instead install from the Evernote_400995.dmg version that downloads in the background... right?

 

Thanks!
