    Hi. Don't know how you'd be receiving two copies of each reply - that's a forum feature that works fine for me. As to processing each page twice to get an image - that's not exactly a recommended process. All devices can take a screenshot. If you really really must have a visible document in your note, it would be far easier and quicker for you to investigate how to get a picture of the area you want to clip using the existing operating system or some third party software, and to attach that to a note. Clipper itself has a screenshot option you could use.

    Best I can suggest is a screenshot. If you can see it on screen then a screen shot should snip it. Maybe someone else can help. NB We're not Evernote as such, just a (mostly) user-supported forum; if you're a paying subscriber it's a good idea to contact support directly at https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new (premium subscribers can chat from the same link) - or anyone can message them on Twitter via https://twitter.com/evernotehelps
  3. As an Android user I keep seeing iOS apps I'd like to try out (the grass is always greener...) but when I post a query for the developers they almost always reply that they won't be developing for other platforms until they have their iOS product firmly (and presumably successfully) established. That's for an existing iOS product that 'just' needs recoding to work in Android. Companies won't risk doing that unless and until they have the cash flow and resources to support the work involved. Evernote had existing and popular products in five major operating systems which all included differently coded editors written by different teams. They came up with a method to provide an editor module that could be fitted into all five applications. I'd guess that all the applications required a serious degree of re-editing to allow the editor to fit. They were doing this while still servicing somewhere north of 100M users who - you may have noticed - tend to get tetchy if things don't work too well. That's not something they could knock off in someone's lunchtime, and I think it's a pretty good achievement which they've actually mentioned once to my knowledge themselves - a bit like the "Oh and by the way we moved 2 billion user documents from our servers to Google's" that they included in the blog the other day. I tend to mention it to put in perspective all the glib "It's such a simple change" comments folks tend to make - something else I may have mentioned once or twice before.. managing Evernote is a bit like steering an oil tanker. If you're planning to change direction you can't just do a quick u-turn and head back the other way. Change is slow, and something you need to plan for well in advance. Evernote clearly think in terms of years for some projects. The sort of feature you want may well be in the pipeline, but whatever we say here, no-one is going to know about it until Evernote decide to deliver.

    I'd second the fact that Evernote Web doesn't (yet) display PDF files as inline images, though the installed desktop versions do. Files attached in Image format are displayed correctly. It's possible to export a PDF file to separate page images if you have a PDF editor.

    Hi. I don't often clip from the WSJ - what have you tried, what's the problem with clipping? Do methods like screen shots or printing the page to PDF (if you're able) help?
  6. Another member since 2008 (ish) - 30,000+ notes, Android/ Windows user. In the several years I've been using these applications I've experienced more involvement with and from Evernote staff than I've ever seen from any of the other software companies whose products I use. I've been a customer of Microsoft / Adobe / Google / Mozilla forinstance for far longer than I have used Evernote, but they all remain faceless corporations about whom I know as much as when I first encountered them. Evernote has gone through updates and relaunches several times each year, and the clients I use now are totally unlike - and much more fully developed - than the ones I used initially. Evernote is continuing to innovate - sometimes unpopularly, when they remove features or (according to one or other group of users) add the wrong ones. I'm on the Beta track, which means I get to see what the company believe is sufficiently house-trained to release to the public as early as possible. And things are still changing. There's no less energy going into development now than there was in their first year. As to price changes - I'm hoping the Evernote will be here in 100 years time. If they don't have a viable business, they won't survive that long. Ask Springpad.
  7. Hadn't noticed Evernote providing any "excuses". They tend to get on with developing their products, listening to user feedback, and implementing features that seem to them most cost effective to adopt. This is not a democratic process. Evernote have the exclusive power to introduce as many - or as few - changes to their products as they wish; users can continue to subscribe, or not, as they wish. No explanations or excuses required on either side.
  8. Hi. Why not set up a template for your notes so that a section headed "Pricing" is always in one predictable location. On some notes it may be blank, on others it will be populated. Where you have comments in that section, add a tag <pricing> to the note. You could use the same system for other information that may be present in some notes but not in others. As an alternative, use highlighting - show the section with pricing information in a particular colour.so it can be picked out easily.
  9. Hi. Lots of people were having this problem, but recent updates seem to have fixed the problem. Clearing the cache one more time may help...
  10. Funny, I just made a very similar post to this in another thread too... Slow is not normal. But slow can be down to lots of different things. Disk problems, including available space; memory; slow internet connection; other applications taking up processor cycles or bandwidth; corrupted notes; bad app installations... the list goes on. It probably can be fixed, but there are a lot of sensible general things you can do for yourself - web search for details, including the type of device with which you're having issues. That's also information that would help us offer some more suggestions - other than to uninstall and reinstall the app. You may have tried that and many other small fixes - again its helpful to know what you've tried already so we can avoid wasting your time suggesting it again. Any desktop should be able to rebuild the search index (that's on the Ctrl / Cmd click Help extended menu) which also may help. Desktops and others may be running related Evernote services like IFTTT, Context and type-ahead searching any or all of which could be slowing things down. I suggest you contact support directly if you're a paying subscriber at https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new (premium subscribers can chat from the same link) - or anyone can message them on Twitter via https://twitter.com/evernotehelps
  11. Hi. It's fairly well documented on the forums that thumbnails are selected by the app and there's no option to choose which image will be selected from several. There is a thread where you can vote to add that option as a new feature - Evernote don't (usually) comment on ongoing development, but they did say 'no' to that idea once...
  12. Like I said, they just got through rewriting some important bits of the app. As of late 2016 that's part of all the clients it's only now possible to work on upgrades that could be applied to every client. More features will be in the pipeline.
  13. Forgot to say: you should also contact support directly if you're a paying subscriber at https://help.evernote.com/hc/requests/new (premium subscribers can chat from the same link) - or anyone can message them on Twitter via https://twitter.com/evernotehelps Did you try rebuilding the search index? Although with a complete reinstall, that should have been done already...
  14. Well, slow is not normal. But slow can be down to lots of different things. Disk problems, including available space; memory; slow internet connection; other applications taking up processor cycles or bandwidth; corrupted notes; bad app installations... the list goes on. It probably can be fixed, but there are a lot of sensible general things you can do for yourself - web search for details, including the type of device with which you're having issues.
