Thanks. Yes, everything synched, all other content visible, image is 443KB, T3 internet line at work - download time is not the issue. And offline viewing is also not the issue - any image that I cut & pasted into a note is never viewable on mobile, even when connected to the T3 line. (PS: offline searchable notebooks are not available in the free evernote version.) It is what it is, I guess. Thanks though for taking the time to respond.
In the Web version of evernote, sometimes I copy & paste an image into a text note (MacBook pro, firefox, all latest versions). I can see the image fine in the Web version of the note. But whenever I try to view the same note on mobile (android latest version), I can't ever get the image to load. Is there a way around this? Ps, I'm using the free version of evernote. Thanks!
