  1. My issues is slightly different. I have Adobe pdf reader and Google pdf reader installed on my phone. When I tap on a pdf file in evernote on Android 7.0, I get two options: (1) OneDrive pdf viewer (which simply doesn't work), or (2) MS Word. If I click on the three dots, I get all options , including both the Adobe and Google pdf reader. Why aren't all available options available when I tap on the file itself? Why do I have to go through another step?
  2. I agree that a new date field would be a great idea. I store business receipts in evernote, and the creation date of the note often (usually) does not match the date of the receipt. I had been modifying the creation date. Apart from any theoretical consideration about doing this, I have found it to be too fragile - any slight modification of the note (sometimes accidentally), such as changing the date or the notebook or the tag will reset the date to the current date. Because of this, I've begun putting the date as the first part of the title - yyyy-mm-dd - so that sorting them by title will thus sort them by date.
  3. I've used evernote android to scan documents to pdf in the past. With the latest update, the document scanner option disappeared for creating a new note. I figured out that you do it through the the camera button which has the option of saving as a document. But, it saves the document as a jpg file, not a pdf file. Is there still a way to scan to a pdf document - I sure can't find it. Thanks for any help
  4. Cloud outliner is only on iOs and OS X - not on on windows and android. With respect to the "indentations and bullet thingamajigs" You can't collapse and expand outline levels - an essential component of outlining, IMO. You'll find if you make many changes to an outline, Evernote get's confused very easily Workflowy looks interesting. I will look into that - thanks for the suggestion
  5. I considered switching to OneNote because it has superior outlining capability. Unfortunately, I found it fell short in other ways, so I'm sticking with EverNote for information gathering,sorting, and organizing, and using OneNote for outlining.
  6. Gary, that doesn't work for me with KitKat 4.4 on a Nexus 4. Evernote does not ask which PDF viewer to use, even when I have more than one installed. What happens for me is that when I attach pdfs created by using the scanner at my work to an note, and try to open it in Android, I get the message "Unfortunately Evernote has stopped working." Or, sometimes it just crashes with no messages. If I put the very same document on google drive, I can open it on my phone just fine. I can also open the attachment on Evernote for windows 7. Jim
