  1. I would also appreciate a way to set up an "Evernote virtual printer" on my Mac, so that I can print a PDF from any application (not just a browser) and send the file straight to Evernote. Up to now, I have achieved this in four rather frustrating steps on my Mac:- Print to PDF Specify a target folder Open Finder and open the folder I saved to Drag the PDF file into Evernote. This seems cumbersome. I have now realised I can reduce this to two steps by using the PDF pull down button on the printer interface window. For anyone else who is interested, the following video shows how you can set this up. This is still not the ideal virtual Evernote printer, but it is an improvement on what I was doing before.
  2. I appreciate the suggestion. I'll have to think on this. Most of the problem emails seem to be invoices or receipts, so I'll have to think about how to create a rule to forward them to my Gmail account - probably ideally to a separate folder, then try setting up an IFTTT script as you suggest. Kind of a skip and a jump. A nuisance, but it could work. In your opinion, do you think the problem formatting would be eradicated if I could install the Evernote add-in in Outlook? I'm guessing this must be the case otherwise there would surely be other users complaining about this same problem. My guess is that Mac users who signed up for Evernote before Microsoft removed the Store button (not so long ago) would have been able to install the Evernote add-in for Outlook, and that may explain why they never have this problem. Sigh.
  3. As per this Microsoft post , it is impossible to add add-ins to Outlook for Mac if you are using IMAP accounts. So I cannot install the Evernote add in. (I have Outlook for Mac latest version 16.11 Office 365 subscription). I can forward emails to Evernote using my Evernote email address, but sometimes the formatting is lost/distorted - on some emails from Outlook, not all. The formatting issue may be related to tables embedded in the email. The emails become almost useless because of the lost formatting in Evernote. I have raised this issue with Evernote support, but it was never resolved. I was hoping the Evernote add in might make things work better, but of course, I cannot even install it. So frustrating, as the same email works perfectly and keeps its formatting when forwarded from Gmail, but loses it when forwarded from Outlook. So it is definitely some sort of Evernote-Outlook integration issue. I seem to be up against a wall on this one.
  4. Good suggestions! It's great to get advice from someone with your level of experience. Thank you so much
  5. Such a useful tip! Thank you Just from this post, I have learned things that will make using Evernote much better. How does one learn such refinements? Is searching this forum, or following a guru such as yourself a good place to start? Or can you recommend any other good sources?
  6. This is very helpful ... thank you!! BTW, how do you get just icons to show in your clutter-free sidebar? Is this the app or the online version you are showing?
  7. I like to keep my INBOX selected in Evernote on my Mac, so that I can see what notes need to be filed, and I can see a couple of shortcuts I have created such as "Shopping List". So it is a nuisance to have to switch to "All Notes" just to be able to see all my reminders, and it is very frustrating not to be able to view them all from my Inbox. This feature really doesn't work for me. Do I have to change the way I'm using Evernote?
  8. Can anybody share an IFTTT recipe that moves an email (in my case Outlook) to a specific Evernote notebook based on text in the subject line? I cannot seem to find this anywhere!
