blue rectangle when converting snapshot note to PDF



  1. Take a document snapshot with my iPhone
  2. Sync the note to the desktop
  3. Right-click on the image in the note and select "Convert note to PDF"

Result: PDF note is successfully created, but the PDF has a thick, blue rectangle/border around the perimeter. What's up with that? I dragged the PDF out of Evernote and the blue rectangle remains. Version 5.6.0 (450741) Direct

This issue persists through Evernote for Mac version 6.0.5 (451190 Direct). Is there an ETA for a fix?


I have been working with Evernote support guru Alvin C. on this one and have sent him a shedload of screenshots and documentation. They are aware of the issue, but did not mention an ETA for the fix. The best work-around I have found is to create a blank line before or after the image in the note, select the blank line (creating a blue, highlighted line), and choose "Convert note to PDF." This creates a resulting PDF without any "blemishes." You can also try right-clicking in the grey area/border around the note and choose "Convert note to PDF."
