  1. My palm seems to be ignored in Evernote using the S Pen on my Note 8.0. Once the pen is away from the screen and the "bulls-eye" disappears then it registers any touches. That's unfortunate it isn't working the same for you. My workflow was going to be S Note then share with Evernote, but it doesn't seem to be searchable which is critical for me, and not editable within Evernote. You can mark up with Skitch. For my purposes, writing directly in Evernote seems to be the solution. I have found that sharing INKredible notes with Evernote is searchable but not editable within Evernote. You can mark up with Skitch. I learned from a post on this thread that if you use the Samsung keyboard, you can switch to pen mode and it will convert your handwriting to text. For plain text notes, this is wonderful! It recognizes my script quite accurately. You're right. I didn't realize it worked that way. S Note has a special option for it, but I'm guessing it ignores everything except S Pen regardless of the "bulls-eye".
  2. So why not make notes in Evernote on Android using the handwriting selection there? Yes, it is not S-note handwriting, but it is editable and it is editable on the desktop platform. Are S-notes editable on Windows desktop without Evernote? I don't know. I do use Evernote's handwriting. I haven't used S Note except the few times I have tested its compatibility with Evernote. It failed to meet my needs and I am forced to use Evernote's inferior but perfectly capable handwriting function. S Note has many more options available where Evernote provides the minimum. Evernote's handwriting has a single line thickness for a given pen-stroke, where S Note simulates a more natural pen stroke by detecting the pressure placed at its tip throughout the pen stroke. It is incredibly sensitive and accurate, but only with the S Note app. It also has several writing instrument options (pencil, pen, etc.), not just pen thickness. By not being able to use S Note, the S Pen itself becomes limited. I am a fan of Samsung hardware, but I generally hate almost all of Touchwiz and apps which came with the phone, and use alternatives instead. The S Note + S Pen interface is something they have done well. It would be great to be able to use it. Also, handwriting created in Evernote is not exactly editable on the PC. It is only editable as a picture. Then after editing, it is never editable as handwriting again. This is still fine for me. If notes created in S Note worked the same way, it would be enough to allow me to use S Note. It seems like it is a very easy thing to accomplish.
  3. I attached the note I created the day I bought my Note 4 below. It is not perfect, but definitely legible (unlike yours). I remember thinking, at the time, it was very low quality, but I did not get a screenshot or anything to be able to compare. http://www.evernote.com/l/ANMPXMoPGvxJI759hG9EyDZkiP3rOCoM-nA/
  4. The pixelation issue seems to be solved. I can now write text in S-Note, and view the handwriting. The handwriting is also searchable. They still do not play perfectly together. You still (of course) can't use Evernote for Android to edit handwriting made in S-Note. Also, the killer for me, is that the note is not directly editable in Evernote Windows. Each page of a S-Note note comes across as a separate image (.jpg) in Evernote Windows. They are "annotatable" using Evernote Windows; but only as a copy. This means, if you would like to edit an image, it creates separate note with the edited image on it's own. There is clearly not a technical reason for this. Evernote Windows could implement the same functionality as they do with it's current handwriting functionality which is also editable only as a .jpg, but directly in the original note. This is still enough of a reason for me to use Evernote's handwriting. That's a shame because I really would like to use S-Note. The handwriting experience is far superior than Evernote's equivalent. The fact that it can ignore your palm and only recognize S-Pen is awesome. Hopefully, Evernote and Samsung are still looking at this as a work in progress. Clearly progress has been made thus far.

  5. This is worth a repost. It seems some people have been using Evernote as a (really bad) file management system. I mean they are using a note as a folder. In most cases there is probably 1 file per 1 note. This is definitely not what Evernote is for. Still, after realizing this accidental application of Evernote, Evernote can export all of these files easily so you can move them to something more appropriate like Dropbox, etc. Maybe others have added text to their notes, and would like to create a new file for the text typed into Evernote to another format like .txt or something? Maybe there is something that can do this, but I would much rather view it in the original note format within Evernote (or my 2nd choice would be .html). When people are suggesting .html as a good option, they are assuming you want to view the note as a note, not as individual files. A note is not a folder. I have complex notes which may start with typed text, then have handwriting, then a photo, then more typed text, etc. The order of each of these things is what is important. The ability to order them, and present them in a single scrollable page (note) is what makes Evernote different. If it were a file folder, it would be multiple files sorted "randomly". That being said, I expect Evernote will somehow eventually have "Windows" folders which sync to hard drive like Dropbox, Drive, OneDrive do. Currently, only a one-way sync is available (from Hard Drive to Evernote). Although it would be useful, I do not expect it to simulate the same functionality of the Note itself. It can't because a note is not a folder. . . . and I came across this while searching for a way to sync Evernote and Google Keep. . . talk about distraction. . . . and I too sympathized with BurgersNFries because she gave good suggestions, yet I still cringed at her confrontational approach.
  6. Please add this option. Evernote has allowed me to be nearly entirely paperless. Unfortunately, some people still need to see a piece of paper in front of them to understand an idea. Those people do not want to tape 2 pieces of paper together to see the entire photo.
  7. I have never had that problem. I sync between Windows 8 (home), Windows 7 (work), and Android without any issues.
