  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:





    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?
