  1. Given the amount of time that has passed since this thread was first created I'm guessing this probably isn't going to be implemented. Nevertheless I'd like to add my voice just in case; this would be a very useful feature.
  2. I don't know if posting here will add to the chances of this ever being implemented, but I'm going to add my voice to the crowd just in case. I have many use cases where this would be desirable. For the sake of brevity I'm not going to list them all here, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who would find this really useful.
  3. Have you reached, or are you approaching your monthly upload limit? When annotating a PDF, the entire PDF is re-uploaded and counts against your limit. If the PDF is 3mb, and you make a change, its a new 3mb upload. Do that 6 times and you've got 18mb counted against your limit. How big is the PDF? how big is the note? (These can be seen in the header for the attached PDF, and the note information popover, respectively). Do either of these exceed the limits of your Evernote account? It could be a file permissions issue, perhaps the PDF is "locked" for some reason (I encounter this from time to time for a reason I cannot explain)What happens if you: 1) save the PDF back to your desktop. 2) try to modify and the PDF using Preview 3) If that works, create a NEW note in Evernote and attach the PDF to that note 4) try annotating the PDF again. If (2) doesn't work, it sounds like an issue of file permission, and not necessarily an Evernote issue. You can try saving a new copy of the PDF which might have more linnet and appropriate file permissions. Also, you say you click the "Annotate this note" icon. Why not click on the annotate button for the PDF itself (or right-click and select "Annotate this PDF")? Thanks for the suggestions, however I have a Premium account and am nowhere close to hitting the monthly limit. I'd also checked file permissions already, no issue there. Adding the markup in Preview then saving the pdf is my current workaround. Still can't annotate further in EN, regardless of which method I try. As the previous poster has written that EN have confirmed this is a known issue I'm going to log it with them as well, although given the length of time this has been outstanding I think it's time to look at alternative software too.
  4. I've just hit this issue today as well. I've annotated many PDFs in EN over the last few months (even years, don't remember), this is the first time it's happened. EN for Mac 5.7.2, OS X 10.10.1 Same process is always: I have the PDF saved on my Desktop. I create a note in Evernote then drag the PDF into it. Then click the "annotate this note" icon, add the markup using the Skitch-like tools, and click the "x" icon top left to close and save the PDF. That's when I get the Unable to Save note error. The PDF is saved, but not the markup. Dismayed to see in the forums that people have been having this issue for over a year and it's not resolved. Any advice?
  5. Just done a search for exactly this, so I'm adding my support for this change here. Please make this either a setting in Preferences or as MrPhil says, at least remember the last setting. Drives me nuts.
  6. This issue has just started for me too. OS X 10.8.3 Evernote 5.1.3 Scansnap Manager 3.2 L63 Has anyone found a fix?
