Save to PDF function opens a second instance of Evernote for Mac


scop

Idea

Hi all, I searched and found many threads on aspects of the "Save to PDF" function, but not this:  

 

- on Mavericks, running the non-Mac Appstore version of Evernote, I try to print a webpage from Safari using the "Save PDF to Evernote" function in the print menu, and it opens up a second instance of Evernote asking for a login, even though Evernote is already running and logged in.

 

Has anyone else seen this issue and is there a fix for it?  TIA.

Well, I just duplicated that process and it gave me a splash page where it was logging into my web account.  However, it logged me in without delay and without giving me the password login page.  However, when I saved another web page the same way, the splash page did not appear.  The pdf was simply saved into my Notebook.  

 

Do you have your web login password for Evernote saved in your Safari? If not, this may be the reason why the password page is appearing each time.

Thank for the suggestion. I usually log in to the browser via the Web clipper extension. I do have my Web login saved via Lastpass as well, but not through native Safari.

I usually do clipping via the Web clipper but you are suggesting that this function is unaware of clipper authentication and needs a separate Web login? I'll definitely test that when I am back at my computer.

ps The strange thing though is that it is opening up Evernote Desktop at a login screen and not a Web page.

I normally use the Web Clipper as well.  It seems quicker and easier for me.  Saving a web page as you suggest in your original post is a way I never tried before.  I find it an interesting way to do things.  I will have to check and see if it captures as much as the Web Clipper does, or look at the differences in general.

I do it that way when I want to save a web page as a PDF. AFAICT the web clipper cannot do that (I am not talking about opening a PDF in a browser, but a regular webpage).

Oh, I don't know why the desktop login screen is appearing.  Perhaps a Support Ticket would be your best route if this persists.  That should not be happening!

Will do, thanks!
