  1. But handwriting in PDFs is not recognized and indexed in Evernote, right? I could go with Notability, but what's the point of uploading manually each note to Evernote if it is not even searchable?
  2. But which one? My understanding is that no third party app offers automatic syncing with Evernote (since the restriction on the API was introduced in 2012). So what is the intended way of taking handwritten notes (with Apple Pencil) in Evernote? Sketches within Evernote? Penultimate? Another app?
  3. There were no updates of Penultimate for a year now although there are lots of open issues: Insufficient support for Apple Pencil: It is still possible to leave marks with the hands. The input should be Pencil only - like it is in GoodNotes - to avoid any unwanted marks. Leaving the app (to the homescreen, to another app) and going back will bring you always to another page of the current note. Very annoying! Lasso cut & paste leaves marks. But on the other hand the functionality of Penultimate is not integrated fully in Evernote. So is there any future for Penultimat
  4. This question is obviously NOT about this issue. It is about completely empty notes. And this is related to the fact, that the Evernote app does not work with watchOS 3! Notes are empty and a search crashes the app immediately. Evernote needs to release an urgent fix or at least a statement about it. But instead: Silence, nothing, just ignoring all complains. Maybe they are no longer interested in the Apple Watch.
  5. The search functionality on Apple Watch NEVER worked - until the new update 7.10. Finally Evernote fixed this bug, but not even mentioned the fix in the change log.
  6. Yes, I would and I actually do every day. It is really like a real writing pad. A white paper and a pen - what do you need more? All the additional functionalities of other note taking apps are needed because of the problems with those finger-like pens. E. g. why would anyone need a zoom functionality on a normal paper with a normal pen?
  7. I think this thread is about handwriting. Evernote is perfect for taking notes via handwriting - but ONLY on the iPad Pro with an Apple Pencil. Works great - unless a full page of handwritten notes was lost because Evernote had not saved it.
  8. Now there was an update, but there is still no saving in the background! You have to close the handwriting panel in order to save it. That's just not feasible. In a meeting you don't want to constantly close and re-open your notes every minute just to make sure your notes are not lost. Could someone from Evernote please notice that this is a serious issue that needs to be addressed?
  9. I would say handwriting is pretty useless on the other iOS devices, because there is no useable pen. These pens are all just artificial fingers. I own nearly all (Adonit, Bamboo, etc.), but none felt like a real pen. Apple Pencil is the first useable handwriting device for the iPad.But anyway, without an automatic save functionality, it is not useable in Evernote anyhow. I hope they come up with a fix to this very soon.
  10. Handwriting in Evernote is really made for the iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. No need for palm rejection or zoom, it is just perfect as it is with Apple Pencil. BUT there is a huge issue: The new drawing screen is not automatically saved in the background! You have to close the screen manually to get the content saved. I lost a whole page of notes because my screen locked and after I unlocked the iPad Evernote was shut down (maybe iOS ended it or it crashed, I don't know). None of the notes I took over 20 minutes were saved!
  11. Several months and versions later and the search is still not working! Why don't you remove the search button from the Apple Watch button until you figure out a way how to make it actually work?
  12. Yes, same with me. Is there anybody with a working search in Evernote on the Apple Watch? I don't think it works at all. Would be nice to get an official statement that it is broken in the current version and they are working on a quick fix. BTW: I can't create a support ticket. The button "Ticket einreichen" (submit ticket) does not work.
  13. Did you try the file I sent you a link to? This "large" file couldn't be handled and created a loop of copies in Skitch.
  14. I think the most important aspect in comparison with PDF Expert (and GoodReader and Adobe Reader and Documents by Readdle and ...) should be that annotations are saved in the standard PDF way, so they are usable in all other apps. So in short: Just let us annotate PDFs within Evernote like it is standard in any other PDF viewer these days.
