  1. I use Windows and I don't think I have an icon corresponding to the 'eyeball' you mention. I can do a right-click and choose Open, or 'Open With' followed by FoxIt from the context menu - this does work. Less convenient than a double-click, though. Since I initiated this thread I have seen what looks to me like the same PDF interface in other software products and on the web. So I think that it must be a software widget. However, it seems that very little thought has been given to interfacing it conveniently with Evernote and there are bugs - for example, regarding pasting a num
  2. Further to what I wrote above ....... I would like to suggest that there has been a lack of forethought and/or testing of this new style of handling PDFs. Via the right-click context menu, it is possible to reduce a PDF to an icon (see it as an attachment) and then double-clicking it brings it up in your default PDF reader (mine is Foxit). However, each PDF has to be individually set as an attachment since I can't find a way to set the whole note to 'attachment mode'. [Actually, I wouldn't want to do this anyway!] On the context menu there is an item 'Open PDF in Foxit' but it d
  3. The visual aspect of a PDF placed in a note has changed in the latest version ( - much for the worse in my opinion! I now see less of the PDF on the screen owing to a charcoal border, and I have to independently scroll the PDF itself instead of the (entire) note. This is even more cumbersome when there is more than one PDF in the note (I typically use 1-page PDFs). There are also buttons that really are not necessary and could have their functionality less obtrusively provided with a right-click context menu. But the worst things of all are that: 1) I can no lo
  4. I typically paste several PDFs into a note and later I sometimes remove one or more and add others. However, in version I can't delete a PDF from a note! I have to delete the note itself and start again from scratch, which is not at all convenient. As an aside, I really don't like the way the PDFs are now displayed, with black shaded borders and with menus and buttons. I plead for the borders and menus to be removed. All items that are thought to be contenders for a menu item could be accessed via a context menu (right click).
  5. Thank you all for your assuring replies! It is a good point that the master copy in reality is on the Evernote servers - not on the machine that I use most of the time even though I intuitively regard that as the master copy! This local one is nevertheless the most up-to-date copy until it syncs. The deep reason for my posting is ransomware. If my machine gets attacked and all my local files are encrypted then I fear that the Evernote servers will sync the encrypted data. Previously I had thought of the Evernote servers as a substitute for a true backup but now I fear that they
  6. I am currently using version I have a couple of issues. In the directory c:\users\<user-name>\Evernote I can see a sub-directory named AutoUpdate that has numerous .EXE files that are taking up over 1 GB of space. The latest file (Evernote_5.8.12.8127.exe) is dated 01/07/2015. There are also two small files - an .XML and an .HTML. Can I safely free up some space by deleting all the .exe files? (What are .EXE files doing in my user directory!?). In spite of the fact that there is a copy on the Evernote servers, I would like to make a backup of the local dat
