  1. Hi all, I have seen the question "How can I clip a PDF file to evernote" raised in the forum already several times, but so far, there has not been a satisfying answer, but only astonishingly clumsy workarounds. (for example: http://discussion.ev...on-pdf-windows/ http://discussion.ev...m-web-answered/ http://discussion.ev...document-to-en/ ) Neither saving the pdf as a temporary file and then dragging&dropping it to evernote nor saving it to some import-directory & then importing it seems accebtable to me, because in both cases, you will lose the original source path information which is a real deal-breaker. Let's summarize it: 1.) Save pdf to a temporary file 2.) Start file explorer, Locate the temporary-folder and drag file to evernote [which means locating the evernote window (which might be buried behind the newly opened file explorer or the internet explorer showing the pdf) first] 3.) Switch back to internet explorer (find its window, which by now might be buried by evernote or the file explorer) 4.) Mark the url in the adress bar, Ctrl-C 5.) Switch back to evernote (which might be buried by the internet explorer again) 6.) Allocate the new note, locate the source-path-control. 7.) Ctrl-V Why not instead offer one of those smart 1-click-solutions evernote is famous for? Just a nice Option "Save Link (to pdf) to evernote" in the context menu and all is done? Does not sound like too much effort to implement? Is it?
  2. FYI: The German section of the store shows a really strange graphics. Compare English (nice graphics): http://apps.microsoft.com/webpdp/en-us/app/evernote/5aba7f8c-318f-42aa-9590-b1fc31e5cba6 German (weird graphics) http://apps.microsoft.com/webpdp/de-de/app/evernote/5aba7f8c-318f-42aa-9590-b1fc31e5cba6 Not really appealing...
  3. Sorry for the delayed answer. Yes, this solved my problem perfectly. My android is now finding all the notes Thats great. Thanks a lot for your help, engberg.
  4. Hi all, just a time ago I got a HTC Desire and when I installed evernote for android there, I realized that it did not find (all of) my notes. For example, searching for microsoft only found about 22 out of 112 existing notes. I was on my way on complaining in the mobile forum when I double-checked by using the web interface and there I got absolutely horrified!!!! Whilst my desktop application was counting a total of 1783 notes, the web interface to the evernote database service only counted 919 notes! This means: 864 notes, nearly half of my database seemed to be lost!! "Luckily", it even got more weird: When I navigated by web to a folder which contained -according to the web interface- only 1 instead of the "should-be" 7 (according to the desktop) items, I was indeed able to see all 7 items. Nevertheless, when I searched for a word belonging to one of the 7 items ("Stundenplan"), it was only found in the desktop application, not in the web-interface. So obviously, it is not the fault of the android app that it does not find all of my notes, but instead it is a problem with the central service. When will this highly irritating failure be corrected?
