  1. Thanks for your feedback, gazumped. You've given me some more ideas. I didn't think of emailing, because my use case would sometimes be in places with no cell service... Share to Evernote... didn't know about this one, and it might not be too cumbersome... a shortcut on the desktop to the folder where the screenshots are stored, together with sharing to Evernote, works pretty well if starting a new note with the screenshot. Neither of these, as you note, work for adding a screenshot to an existing note. And that was my reason for asking for a feature... Yes, the ability exists to add a picture or file to an existing note, via the paperclip... but to do so requires navigating through the file system to find the folder where the screenshots are stored. The paperclip pops up a menu of options, file, photo, video, audio, etc... an extra item in that list for "screenshot" that went directly to the screenshot folder would be helpful. In experimenting with the paperclip options, though, it seems that somehow it "knows" too much or too little about the files in the Gallery area: I see thumbnails of files that were deleted days before, and no thumbnails (maybe a broken-link sort of icon/thumbnail) for other files, and can't see thumbnails of the newer files that are there now. So this isn't particularly friendly, and although maybe would suffice if it were actually showing thumbnails of the current files, starting the navigation in the screenshots directory would be a nice addition: or maybe this could be generalized... and allow user specified starting points in the list of paperclip options... while I'm hot on attaching screenshots, other people may have other directories from which they wish to quickly attach files to Evernote.notes.
  2. My phone and tablet (Android) both have the ability to take screenshots, and they get saved in a default location (/mnt/sdcard/Pictures/Screenshots on both, but that may or may not be universal). It would be really handy to have a feature in Evernote that would allow attaching of the latest screen shot, or quickly selecting a file from the location where they are saved.
  3. 2 months later.... no response. Is there a way to submit things to a bug report system?
  4. I use the character ✓ to check off things I've done in lists I've made in notes in Evernote. When trying to check off the "upgrade to Windows 10" item (OK, I didn't really have one of those, but in trying to check of a different item after the Windows 10 upgrade), I got a "can't find a font with that character" box, instead of a ✓. On rare occasion under Windows 7 (which I upgraded from), I would get that box instead of the ✓, but not I see that all the items that had ✓ before now have the box, in the edit panel for the note. Curiously, though, for a couple notes that now have the box early enough in the note, I still see the ✓ in the snippet view of the note listing! So, I'm confused as to: why characters that used to display ✓ successfully now display the box, even though ✓ is still displayed in the snippet. why upgrading to Windows 10 would cause this problem, as the font containing ✓ appears to still be available on the system, usable by Firefox for this posting How to get my ✓ displayable again Just in case the ✓ isn't appearing by the time you see this, it is a checkmark character, codepoint U+2713
  5. That must be the root cause, a difference in the Windows and Android "known file types" list. But why? If display of the file is handed off to the default viewer of the OS anyway, why should Evernote even keep a "known file types" list? Is PDF in the "known file types" list on Android? That would be the next best option for these particular files, methinks. But in PDF they will be about twice as large.
  6. Thanks for the reply, Jeff. What you say is very true. However, Evernote handles them on Windows by sending them to the default DJVU viewer, and that works fine. I was hoping for that same sort of behavior on the Android, and gazumped's description of how it worked sounds like that, but now, even though I have not only installed but also (per gazumped's suggestion) selected a default viewer something is still not connected, either in the configuration or the code. I haven't found anything to configure, and hardly know where to look, being new to Android and Evernote on Android, hence my plea for help. So it could be that Evernote isn't recognizing that the file is a format it should pass to the default Android displayer... I notice that on Windows there is a box with the file name, but on Android, there is a tiny box with a "?" in it, like it doesn't even know what this is? So does Evernote on Android have limits on what file types it knows about and will pass to the default Android viewer for that type?
  7. Thanks for the reply, gazumped, I hadn't selected a default app for that format. Now I have, I've selected the EBookDroid as the default app for .djvu files. It displays and scrolls them nicely. However, Evernote still doesn't load the image, with the same error, Image cannot be loaded.
  8. This is probably a newbie Android question, djvu files work fine on my Windows computer from Evernote, opening in IrfanView, my default viewer for that format. I loaded one PDF/DJVU viewer on Android, but it doesn't seem to get invoked from Evernote to open the note attachment, I get the "Image cannot be loaded" error instead. What else do I need to do? Is there an explanation of the mechanism somewhere? Would a different DJVU viewer program work better? I noticed one that wants to read email attachments, but the one I loaded (and most of the others I see) seem to want to be ebook reader programs, rather than just image viewers.
