    Change in-Evernote PDF viewer

    Not sure if this is the right place to mention this or not...but it seemed like a general thread to air PDF grievances. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, and I hope that's the case. Here's my scenario: I have two notes and I want to get a PDF in one note over to the other note. I have tried right-clicking in the body of the PDF. Hit Copy. And then Paste into the new note. No luck. Not sure what the copy is actually doing. I have tried dragging the header of the PDF over. No luck. I have tried viewing it as an attachment. And then it looks like it's going to drag to the new note, but doesn't show up. If I drag to the desktop and then to the new note, that works. I feel like Steps 1-3 should be doable. Am I missing something? Can anyone repeat and see if they get the same results?
  2. So I just played around with Notion for a little bit. It's easy to sign up with a Google account or create a new one. Holy cow, there is a lot of potential here. I'm not interested in moving my life over to another app right now, but if I was I would seriously consider Notion. I'm kind of overwhelmed by what it can do. If you just need a place to keep text, there are probably better options for that. But if you need text, next to tables, next to images, next to whatever, it seems like this might be the way to go. Seriously, spend a few minutes playing around with it. Here are some of my first impressions: Very visual. Lots of emojis. You can add covers to pages and grab beautiful images from NASA or Art Museums right within the app. Everything appears to be block-driven, so you create the kinds of blocks you need and move them around as needed. Indent blocks to make them child blocks of a parent. It's really well done. If you just need text, just type text. You can create code blocks and then choose a language. Not sure exactly what that does yet. Maybe it just highlights keywords. Heavy focus on keyboard shortcuts. Yay for that! Lots of ready-made templates to create calendars, kanban boards, and so on.
  3. This is for the OP. Have you looked into Bear? I know they have an Evernote import tool. There's also this new kid on the block (well, new to me) called Notion. It looks like it's meant to be more team-focused supposedly replacing other apps for wikis, notes, docs, etc. Might be worth checking out. I think I may actually give it a throw. Bear is neat but is pretty much Apple-focused only. It looks like you can import Evernote HTML files into Notion. You'll have to do the images manually though. https://www.notion.so/Importing-Guide-b915f547304b401eb1e2ccf742cfe849

    Need to select a note twice before I can type - why?

    Yay! This is my biggest issue with the client. When I'm editing a lot of notes via keyboard, I usually jump to the Note Title and tab down. I have to do that twice to edit each note.
  5. Ok. Even weirder. I closed and reopened the app and it's fine now. My bad. I guess I should have tried that first.
  6. Hmm. Ok. Weird. I wonder if it's a synchronization issue. Can you confirm your settings?
  7. I try to use the keyboard to navigate as much as possible and this one is kind of annoying. To recreate: Select a note in the note list Hit F2 to jump to title Hit Tab to jump to note content. You should see the cursor at this point. Try typing. I get nothing. If I repeat F2 and Tab, it works. I also get the same response from hitting Enter or Ctrl + Enter in the note list. Shouldn't there be a way to edit notes from the list using just your keyboard?

    How do I make this app work?

    Other possible title: "How do I make this app suck less?" I am running the latest version on an iPhone6. No beta software. The experience was getting better but has since taken a nosedive. Extremely laggy response assuming it doesn't just crash. When it does respond, it seems to take a very long time to do anything. Suggestions please! I turned offline notebooks on thinking that might help, but it feels like they're always syncing and are never "done".

    Configurable Toolbar on Mac - a dedicated thread!

    I should have been more clear. I use a PC everyday for work. My Mac is my personal machine. And I much prefer Evernote on Windows. It's just better, in my opinion. This is the conundrum for me. I have no desire to run Windows on a personal machine, but Evernote is my #1 app. So do I go where the better software is? Or stick with Mac because I prefer the environment? It's a tough call.

    Configurable Toolbar on Mac - a dedicated thread!

    Still holding out hope that this will get implemented at some point. I'm seriously thinking about a PC for my next computer since Evernote for Windows is more customizable.

    Evernote for Mac 6.12 Beta 1 Released

    Any new options for customizing the toolbar in this beta? Or can you have shortcuts in the collapsed view of the sidebar?

    Configurable Toolbar on Mac - a dedicated thread!

    Bump-bumpedy bump bump bump. Really would love to collapse that sidebar in the Mac client and have my shortcuts up in the toolbar. There's so much wasted space up there. That would be pretty killer.

    Typing Bug V6.5.4.4720?

    Nice. I thought I was going crazy. I kept thinking I was accidentally hitting a shortcut or something. It doesn't seem to matter whether I'm in a new note or not. I'll just start typing away and then the focus jumps. I assumed it was an issue with syncing.
