  1. I just discovered that the "bug" which did not preserve changes made to attachments which were made with an external editor (for example, changes made to a docx by opening it in Word would not be saved to the attachment, but, rather, a new file saved externally from Evernote) has been fixed! Thank you Evernote!!!! This is the single-most important feature in allowing me to use Evernote as a virtual replacement for the file system on my computer.
  2. I've been using EN Legacy rather than EN 10 because I do a lot of work with pdfs and really need the notes edited with pdfPen Pro (or Preview or whatever) to be saved directly to EN. I just checked my copy of EN 10.9 and this functionality is still not there. Has this bug been fixed? If so, what do I need to do to make it work on my macOS Version 11.2.3.?
  3. I'm using Evernote on a Mac and the exception seems to be pdfs in general. When I open a pdf attachment with PDFpenPro, changes are not saved to the version of the file which is attached to the note; in fact, PDFpenPro prompts me for a new download location. Fortunately, Word and Excel attachments still behave as they did before: changes are saved back to the version of the file which is attached to the note. This is a real problem for me as pdf is the predominant format I use for attachments and I long ago began using Evernote as a replacement for the method of storing files provided by the operating system - whether its Windows or OSX. I'm glad to hear that this is a "known issue" that is being addressed.
  4. Thank you, gazumped, for the bookmarking tip. I have yet to put my checkbook (Moneydance) and genealogy (Heredis) files in Evernote because I wanted a way to back them up to cloud drives, independent of Evernote. More than once, I've found myself wondering where the devil I've stored them and, since I'm the kind of guy who often has multiple copies of files, it can become difficult to find the "real McCoy." Your tip should solve that problem.
  5. I've used Evernote for years to archive documents, but only recently discovered that it could be a viable place for storing nearly all of my working files as well. What brought me to this realization was learning that a document attached to a note in EN can be edited, for example, in Microsoft Word, and the changes will be saved to the version attached to the note. I had always (mistakenly) thought that changes to a note's attached document would need to be saved to an OSX or Windows folder and, then, dragged back to EN. I am now using EN as a replacement for storing virtually all of my working files in folders (and subfolders, and subfolders of subfolders, etc.). The beauty of this, of course, is that the working files are now available for editing on my multiple computers. There are those who will argue that cloud drives such as OneDrive and Google Drive can accomplish the same purpose. To a point, this is true, but EN's ability to quickly and easily grab information from anywhere using virtually any device surpasses any method I have found to accomplish the same thing with OneDrive or Google Drive. Then, too, while EN's search capabilities could always be enhanced, it is still superior to most of the other methods I have found for doing the same thing through Spotlight, etc.
