  1. I've noticed if I'm viewing a PDF in Safari and clip it, all I get is a blank note with the title "Favorites".
  2. I'm afraid it doesn't. At least I haven't been able to find it. But if it does actually exist, I would happily stand corrected on my misunderstanding. So the question that is begging an answer: How do I resize an image with Evernote's annotation tool? To answer my question correctly please be VERY CLEAR on the distinction between cropping and resizing. They are two different things. Cropping = take only a part of the whole picture and crop the rest Resizing = keep the whole picture and reduce (or enlarge) its proportions. (This reduces (or enlarges) the actual filesize of the picture -> takes less storage space.) For example: if happen to take a picture with my camera that has resolution 1920x1080 and I have it in Evernote. What I often notice is that it's too large for my purposes and I want to reduce its size e.g. to one third of the original: 640x360 and thus have it take much less storage space AND load faster on my phone. So THIS is what I'm looking for. Does this feature already exist? If so, how do I use it? Look at Post #161 above. It explains exactly what you're describing.
  3. The problem with resizing in Skitch (or using the Skitch tools built into Evernote) is that you lose the original image data when you resize it. Once you've resized it in Skitch, you can't size it back up to the original size again. Most modern apps let you scale images inline, and that scaling is lossless. (See Microsoft Word, Apple Pages.) Regardless, even the current scheme in Evernote is not WYSIWYG. Images that appear reasonably sized onscreen often turn huge when you try to print them. I have lots of images in my recipes, and I find I can't print them since the images take over the page when printed; sometimes they even tile on to other pages. Try it, the current scheme is a bit of a disaster. I've resorted to putting just one image at then end of each recipe so that I can use the recipe and discard the image if I need to (the image almost always generate a page break and gets bopped to the next page. Even BBCode allows you to change the size of an image without losing any data. No need to use Skitch. You can do it all from with Evernote: 1. Click on the annotate button in the toolbar 2. In the popover that appears, click on the image you want to modify. 3. Click the crop button 4. Click the resize button 5. Drag the slider until you get the size you want. 6. Click apply. 7. Close the annotation window You now have a resized image which can be printed on a single page.
  4. I've struggled with this as well. I have hundreds of recipes in Evernote with lots of images, and printing is so far from WYSIWYG that it's laughable. I've optimized my notes for onscreen/web viewing and given up on printing for the time being.
  5. I've tried sendtodropbox.com but found that when you mail a note from Evernote to your sendtoboxdrop account, all you get are separate files for each attachment to the note. The note itself (headline, any text in the note) doesn't end up in the folder on your Dropbox. Makes it kind of useless fro me.
  6. I also have multiple PDFs that say they have not been indexed but their contents appear in search results... I am a premium member and this is on the release Mac client. Here's an example... https://www.evernote.com/shard/s24/sh/75f35f04-3f1d-4653-9a3b-8fc91021c39e/a408a04822a118ecf2429b8271fc6592
