  1. Hi. You decided to be snarky and condescending and accuse someone of having a "meltdown" when they said something that you don't like. Criticizing evernote for chronic lack of responsiveness is hardly a "meltdown." 1. The evernote help article https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/209005587-How-to-annotate-images-and-PDFs-in-Evernote refers to using a "highlight tool" to annotate a pdf. I agree with the OP -- from 4 years ago -- that drawing a freehand rectangle leads to messy highlights and is not what anyone means by the term "highlighting" a pdf. 2. No, it is not and it's hard to read this as anything other than a willful misreading of the entire thread. Drawing a colored rectangle over a document is not "highlighting" the text -- at least not in the sense that the vast majority of people mean when they refer to "highlighting" a document, hence the comments by the OP and by Thora.
  2. I have to say as an evernote user it is utterly enraging how often I encouter threads like this. 1. FOUR YEARS AGO someone points out "hey, why doesn't evernote have AN UTTERLY STANDARD FEATURE like being able to highlight text" 2. evernote users in essence say "yeah, the thing about the evernote car is it doesn't have rear view mirrors" but here's a work around. NOTE: I am NOT directing snark at the users -- they are actually trying to help. 3. Four years go by and evernote does, wait for it..... NOTHING. Nothing to improve this super basic functionality. Repeat 8000 times and that is the experience of being an evernote user.
  3. Dave-in-Decatur thanks for this response.
  4. Completely agree. Evernote you guys are basically becoming the General Motors of this space. whatever your intentions, you give off the impression that you are complacent and you truly do not give a ***** about your users. Basic problems -- like the web clipper won't work on pdfs on firefox -- stay around for YEARS. What exactly are you doing? I do not remember a SINGLE new feature that I cared about in the last several years. I used to be a fan of your company. But basically you are headed towards your "Toyota vs. GM moment" where a new incumbent is going to come along. At that point you are going to ask us, your long time users for loyalty, and we are going to respond -- "you were never loyal to us."
  5. Totally agree with you that this is infuriating and it’s been going on forever. What is the problem evernote. Just fix this.
  6. I know it's been a while since you posted this, Jason54 but just wanted to say thanks, this was a very helpful comment. I should add that I find it extremely frustrating that the evernote team has not addressed this yet. On the windows version, you absolutely can remove a notebook from the stack by clicking in the sidebar, so I was expecting to be able to do the same thing on the mac.
