    EN is not a pdf editor. You can annotate a pdf, but not change the original content.

    In you case on a Mac it is quite simple: Open the pdf from inside EN with Mac‘s Preview. To do this, right click on the top of the pdf (where it has the File Name and 3 icons) and choose „Open with“, then select Preview. In preview with the pdf Open choose the last position in the side tabs (see picture). In my example 3 pictures are selected (can be a range, can be any selection). Then right mouse click, from the popup menu choose „Export as ...“, pdf and give it a File Name. Then create a new note and move the new pdf there.


    To delete the pages from the original pdf, stay in the view with the little pages and select them. Go to the edit menu and choose „Delete“. The pages will be deleted from the pdf. Now (important) go to the File menu and choose „Close window“. This will close the pdf in preview AND save the changes made to EN. As a last step to save the change inside of EN, close the note in EN. This will write the modified pdf to your EN data base, and sync it to the server.

    As you see, the very useful Preview program that is installed on your Mac will do the job.


    Thanks for the detailed info. I feel like if it has the capability to merge notes it would have the capability to split/unmerge how ever the user pleases. I can select just that page and rotate it within EN, it also has the option to delete the selected page(s). So it can isolate the relevant sheet(s) already.  I was hoping I could just drag and drop that particular sheet to wherever and make a new note but it wasn’t that easy. 🤣  Anyways I thought maybe I was missing something or doing something wrong. But it looks like this capability isn’t available yet. 

  2. I also need an unmerge/split function. I scan my receipts using ScanSnap (Fujitsu) with OCR PDF into Evernote. After it is scanned, I change the title on it and add some tags.   I was doing a whole bunch and I made a mistake.... I would like the ability to split/extract this particular page into another note (or a separate note is fine too) all within EN (instead of using  another program like adobe or preview (on Mac)). I’m using a Mac. I know this is an old thread... has this capability been added at all? I couldn’t find it.... I’ve searched high and low on google and on the forums. The ability to scan a whole bunch of receipts into one PDF and being able to separate the pages into separate notes would be so valuable to me. 

  3. In an effort to move towards a paperless office, I've been scanning my documents into EN for quite some time.  I haven't scanned anything in a few months and my papers were starting to pile up.  I noticed that when I scanned my documents this time, the pages are out of order in EN after it is processed by the scanner (I place the document(s) in order into the scanner chute). I googled it and looked through this forum and didn't find much help.  I've always scanned them as pdf into EN with OCR with no problems.  I made sure that the file format was still in pdf.  Anybody else experiencing this? It's driving me nuts!  I'm running macOS High Sierra Ver 10.13.1, EN Version 6.13 (455674 App Store) with  ScanSnap Manager Version 3.2 L91 (ScanSnap S1300i).  Thanks in advance for your help!
