  1. Thanks so much for everyone's input. Sounds like a hassle, but a worthwhile workaround.
  2. Hi, So I'm sure we'll all agree that the native options to highlight PDFs in Evernote are laughable, with the semi-transparent squiggley line overlays. I've tried various external apps that do the job much better (Xodo being my favourite) but I can't figure out how to get Evernote to accept the changes and update the existing file in the note. Is there some new workaround to this that I haven't spotted in the forums?
  3. Thanks for your reply! Just did a bit more research, it seems that epub files don't support any annotation functionality within themselves. Its the e-reader software that creates that ability, but the annotations never get stored in-file. Which means that, at least for now, I'll have to content myself with exporting highlights as an external file and plonking those into Evernote. Or converting the epub files to PDF... but then I'll run into another issue, which is whether annotated PDFs will automatically be saved back into Evernote when I'm on a tablet. I'll probably have to manually reupload the changed file every time I'm done reading. Phew! But nah, I won't make a feature request to Evernote as I'm sure they'll just ignore it. If its taken 7 years of people wanting different highlighter colours and its still not happened, then I doubt they'll add epub reading capabilities any time soon.
  4. Hello! I’ve got a question. I run a course at a university, and I’ve been using Evernote to keep all the readings in one place. They’re all super long, so its necessary for me to highlight important passages so I can refer to them later again. They’re all PDFs, so on my Macbook I can just open the files in Preview and highlight away. When I hit Save, the Evernote version of the article gets updated, which means I can view the file (with the highlights) again on another computer, or on my tablet. But can do I this for Epubs? I prefer to read on my Android tablet for obvious reasons, but I’ve not been able to find an ebook reader that links to Evernote well. If I open an Epub from Evernote, and it opens in PocketBook eReader or whatever, those highlights don’t migrate across to the file in Evernote. Instead it only affects the local file on the tablet’s harddrive. So one thing that that app can do is export highlights as an .html file which I can put in Evernote, which is fine, but I’d much prefer to have the whole book/article available and then easily see the highlights as well, and not just on their own completely out of context. Does such a thing exist? Do I have to wait for native Epub capabilities some day? Thanks for your time.
