Possible bug: unable to annotate some pdf's



I encountered a problem with annotation of some pdf's.

From what I have noticed the problem appears when pdf is added as a new note from a web browser (Chrome) using "Save PDF in Evernote" available when a file is opened directly in the browser. When I open a note created like that on my Android device and try to edit I get a remark: "This note contains some unsupported formatting" and I am not able to annotate this PDF (as showed in the attached screenshot).

When I save a pdf and just attach it to a new note there is no problem and I can annotate the PDF without any issues.

I have already added a lot of pdf's that way and it is a little frustraiting not being able to annotate them.

Maybe this is Android problem or maybe it is the way that Evernote Web Clipper saves the PDF's

Hello @hitek,

Thank you for posting and welcome to the forums. What is the version number of the Evernote application that is installed on your device?

To locate this information, please perform the following:

  1. Open Evernote on your Android phone
  2. Select the three dots in the top right corner
  3. Choose Settings > Support
  4. The version number should appear under Check for updates

I look forward to your response.
