  1. Here's a video showing the issue. It shows how Apple Notes is doing it right. IMG_0922.MP4
  2. Needs to be fixed ASAP!! Competing apps (like Apple’s included Notes app) does not do this. Video of the issue attached. IMG_0922.MP4
  3. Bumping this because OMG this needs to be fixed ASAP. Video attached of problem at hand. IMG_0922.MP4 IMG_0922.MP4
  4. Hey Joe, I had just assumed that Evernote has been updated since this thread, but maybe it hasn't. I'm asking because I just had the same thing happen again. I did not open the PDF through Skitch, instead opening it through Evernote by pressing the Skitch button in the bar above the note, made some Skitch annotations, then clicked "Save to Evernote", which frustratingly burned the Skitch annotations into the PDF, creating a flattened PDF. I guess I'm just wondering how I will know this has been fixed. Thanks, Leigh
  5. Hey Joe, I am not able to recreate what you did. Everything you did is exactly what I did. When I went into this new note (the one with the Skitch summary) and selected the Markup icon again and chose the PDF (not the note) and saw the opened PDF in Skitch again, it is a flattened PDF! I am not getting a rich PDF. So I can add new annotations, but not old ones. I decided to try these steps with a new PDF to see if it was the PDF file and I got the same result--I always end up with a flattened PDF once the note is saved from Skitch back to Evernote. Leigh
  6. Hey Joe, Thanks for the kind explanation. What you're saying (and the new vocabulary you're using) makes sense. I am going to need more specific instructions than what has been provided because I cannot recreate what you said. Out of my two original problems, I understand my first mistake fully: I took a note with a PDF and selected "Mark up entire note". I will NOT do that again, so that problem is solved. Regarding my second issue, trying to edit the annotations in a "Rich PDF", I'm still struggling. Here is what I'm doing: I have a PDF in a note (nothing else in this note--just the PDF). I choose the Skitch icon in the upper right corner and select the actual PDF to mark up. I mark up the PDF in Skitch. In Skitch, I click, "Save to Evernote". I see the new Evernote note that includes a new PDF retitled "annotated.pdf". It includes my mark-up. At the top of the note, it also includes a Skitch Summary section.Now, I'm at step 5. Allegedly, this is a rich PDF. How do I edit the annotations at this point? I have not figured that out.
  7. Hmmm....I still have two issues: (1) I have a PDF within a PDF (but I think I know my mistake on this) and (2) I cannot edit my original annotations (which mystifies me and is a big bummer). PDF within a PDF I think I know what happened here. I had a note that was JUST a PDF document. No notes, edits, nothing. I must have chosen "Mark up entire note" instead of choosing the PDF file, because after I annotated it, I had two notes in Evernote: the original unmarked note which was just a PDF document, and a second note which was this: I did not want a PDF within a PDF. I just wanted a Skitched PDF. Am I right about this? (Side note: I wish Skitch/Evernote was smart enough to know that there was nothing else in that note except the PDF so it wouldn't create a PDF within a PDF, but instead just the PDF.) Cannot edit annotations Now this mystifies me. This note (the one I showed you above) is now frozen in time. I cannot seem to edit the annotations. It's now a part of the note. I think I know why, but I think this is a bug. When I am in Evernote and click the Skitch symbol in the upper right hand corner of the note, Skitch opens. A box opens titles "Editing from Evernote". I can add annotations to this PDF. When I am done, I click "Save to Evernote". Here's the tricky thing. It now appears in Evernote as a sealed, filed away PDF. When I go into Skitch, I do not see it at all! So I've permanently lost the ability to edit the notes again (which is a dealbreaker!). I need the ability to edit my Skitch annotations. Skitch is not recognizing that note as something that had annotations. Does that make sense? The only workaround I can figure out right now is to drag the original PDF directly into Skitch, NOT using the Evernote Skitch shortcut. That way, when I save it, it saves in the Skitch notebook (not where I want it), but which means I'll be able to edit it later. Also, another loss feature I'm discovering: when i edit a PDF in Skitch, I see you get a Skitch summary at the beginning of the PDF. It's clickable so that when I click the edit, it takes me to that annotation in the PDF. Well, the PDF I made directly through Evernote does not have any Skitch summaries. Bottom line: I think this is a bug that needs to be worked out. That said, I do not have a workaround for my PDF that has been "sealed". is there any way to edit my annotations in the document above?
  8. I annotated a PDF using Skitch on my Mac, mostly by adding text. When I clicked "Save to Evernote", it saved a separate document that was annotated (so I had the original in one note and the annotated in another). The new PDF that has been saved appears to be a PDF of the PDF (so I see two title bars: the title bar of the current PDF framing the original PDF title bar. It looks like a PDF within a PDF.) My question: I want to edit the notation to change some words. It appears I cannot edit it, but only add more notations. Is that correct? I'd like to delete some old annotations and replace them. How would I do that?
