(Archived) Request: Add Evernote Helper's Screenshot tool into the full Mac client



One of my most frequent tasks involves add several screenshots to an Evernote page and taking notes on each image. With the Evernote Helper app in the Mac menu bar, there is a great little built in screenshot tool that takes the shot, inserts it into the page and allows you to keep going. I'd love that tool to be available in the full client as well.

Thank you Jack.  The workflow form the Help is even better than the workflow from the full client! (Mac)  I spend a lot of time in webconferences, so with via Helper I take a screenshot and then type my notes.  When the presenter moves to the next slide, I repeat the process.  With the full Evernote client there is no way for me to take screenshots as part of the authoring process.  Skitch is not the answer, because for each screenshot it creates a new page in Evernote.  If you added the simple screenshot tool to the full client it would be awesome.


BTW, could you help me with my other post that asks about the difference in embedded vs. attached images in Evernote pages.  I find it really odd that the menus/options are different. (ex: ability to zoom in/out, etc)


Also while I have your attention (sorry) PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me turn off "Automatically Resize" as the default option for pasted images. I like to use it occasionally, but 99% of the time I need to right click on each image and set it back to actual size.

Also worth posting, this functionality is pretty much already built into Mac OS X. Hit CMD-CTRL-SHIFT-4 to copy a screenshot to the clipboard. Then go into Evernote (the main app or helper) and hit CMD-V to paste the screenshot.

This is a good request.  There's an awful lot of toolbar there just waiting to be customized (hint-hint).  Having some of the helper items there might work, because even though I love keyboard shortcuts, I'll never remember that Vulcan death grip of a command.


While we're on the subject of customizing toolbars.  Maybe a Skitch button for those that would use it.  Just a thought.
