  1. Hi, I recently started to use Evernote and really enjoy using it! I am think to upgrade to the premium package but before I do I would like to know the following: Is it possible to convert documents or presentations to PDF? and then annotate them with handwriting? The current annotation allows me to put in text blocks, arrows etc etc but when I just try to write some small notes it does not work as it tries to make line's circles etc of it. When I add a note I can use my pencil and write, make drawings etc etc and keep those but I can not do this on any document/pdf what I save in my notebooks. I use iPad Pro with Apple Pencil. Thanks
  2. So guys, need your help, im going to college again(nutrition) and i want to be more paperless and efficient, beside that i like studying different kind of subjects, but unfortunately i have to keep printing pdfs for annotation and things like that, i also have a notebook with me for frequent annotations on things i find interesting, or read, saw somewhere. My main question is, which could be the right device for that use, handwriting notes, annotate on pdfs, draw, read ebook and make annotations there(points, arrows, handwritten notes, post its), save web articles for studying, ill use the evernote to keep all of them in the same place, but i need the manual thing on a portable device or ill start to get way too much mechanic and not creative, i like mind maping, drawing, highlighting, colors, for my learning. From what i saw, the ipad pro together with the notability app or the good notes 4 would be a good call(i heard those are good together with the evernote), but im new in this world and i want some suggestions, thats it, i currently have a lg g4, and this would be my first apple device maybe, need help. Edit: I already have a dell notebook for when i need a true desktop.
  3. I usually avoid using the handwriting feature in EN on my tablet for the simple reason that the minimum pen thickness is too large for use on a tablet - I guess it was designed for phones. Since with a dedicated stylus you can get much more precision, it would be nice if you could take advantage of it in evernote. At the moment, I make notes in Squid, and then import them as PDFs, but this is kind of a hassle, especially if you want to go back and make some changes. I'm not asking for the full set of features that are available in dedicated handwriting tools - simply being able to fit a bit more on the page with thinner lines would go a long way.
  4. Hi all, We released Penultimate 6.1.2 to the App Store earlier today. This release contains better zoom box controls, the ability to save higher image resolution notes in Evernote, and some fixes for iOS 9 issues. What's new in 6.1.2: Zoom boxScaling: drag the bottom right corner of the zoom box at the top to zoom in further (smaller zoom box) or zoom out (larger zoom box)Speed controls: when drift is turned on, tap the "-" button to slow it down or the "+" button to speed it up - speed increments from 1 to 9Drag to close: drag the center/resize button all the way down to close the zoom box - it will remember the last size used the next time you open itFocus will snap to edge of page and not traverse pages in vertical scrolling modeHigher resolution notes in EvernoteSome notes, especially with narrow lines / text don't look as good as expeced when viewed in Evernote. This feature will enable higher resolution images for notes viewed in Evernote.To enable, go to Settings > More settings > General > Notes Upload to Evernote in HD > OnNote: this will increase the size of every new and edited note synced with Evernote and will affect monthly upload quota usageAdditional updatesiOS 9 importing from Dropbox fixedImprovements to sync conflicts when modifying notes on multiple devicesPlease let us know what you think. You can download the Penultimate app from the App Store. You can order the Jot Script 2 Evernote Edition Stylus from the Evernote Market. Cheers!
  5. I've done some searching in the forums but haven't found a thread that answers this question. I'm considering the purchase of an Android tablet with dedicated stylus - probably the Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen so that I can capture notes by writing rather than typing on my tablet. What's not clear to me is how this would work with Evernote, I know that Samsung has its own note taking app but what I'd like to do is to be able to write directly into an Evernote note, is this possible? If not, what are my options here? Help greatly appreciated!
  6. I am a university student and I've tried several different apps for my lecture notes and course materials, as well as personal organisation and journalling. I've kept coming back to Evernote, because it's by far the best all-rounder, but compared to some other apps, the ability to handwrite on PDFs using the iPad is really poor. The drawing tool seems to overcorrect handwriting, has no palm recognition, doesn't have a proper eraser, and seems to be designed more for drawing simple shapes. The text tool is okay, but the "shadowed" effect on the font is hideous. I'm keeping my premium account for now, but I'd really appreciate being able to handwrite on PDFs more easily on my iPad. Anyone else?
  7. You should be the ability to draw inside of a note (not inside of an image or pdf) like in the android version. It should be in iOS without the use of Penultimate.

  15. I recently purchased a Galaxy Note 10.1. I already used Evernote and was very interested in the handwriting functionality built into Evernote. However, I found that other handwriting applications contain features I need/want which are note currently available in Evernote. They are as follows: 1. The ability to replicate a piece of paper. Replicating a piece of paper includes both size (ie Letter, legal) and printed guides (ie graph, college ruled, wide ruled, etc) 2. Pressure sensitive or, at least, fine point writing. The current handwriting functionality included in Evernote does not, in my opinion, allow me to include the amount of content in one note as I could on a piece of paper due to the thickness of the pen stroke. This is, of course, considering the thinnest pin stroke setting available. A thinner pin stroke would be acceptable, but simulated pressure sensitivity would be excellent. 3. The ability to reject all finger touches. In another application, I can adjust settings such that only my stylus can be used to write. Rubbing my finger on the screen does not write. As a matter of fact, the other application allows me to use my finger as an eraser. So... I write with my stylus and, if I make a mistake, I rub the screen with my finger to erase the mistake. It is a very natural feeling configuration. Your consideration regarding these requests is very much appreciated. In addition, if functionality currently exists within Evernote which meets my needs but I have overlooked, please let me know. Thank you.
  16. Xperia M2, EN 6.3.3.1 No problem when writing with black ink (only a bit faded) More problems when writing with red ink. Big problems when writing with blue ink, the page is very (very) faded. It's only a problem of mine? Anybody else? Cheers. G
  17. Suggestion: Decrease the file size of handwritten note images so Evernote can become the one application that allows you to compose and send handwritten emails! ;-) Personally, I'd write by hand every message I intend to send by email if the file size of the resulting images weren't so large. I'd simply write all of my messages by hand using Evernote, then "Share" them by "Email". Evernote can bring handwriting back from the dead! Simply compress the file size of the handwriting-image as it's being sent so users won't have to worry about the person they're emailing becoming upset about being forced to receive their enormously sized emails that take up a huge chunk of their inbox's storage space. Whatcha think? Thoughts?

  19. I recently got a Jot Pro stylus and it works really well on my aging ipad 2, with Penultimate. With my more modern Nexus 7 (2013) using handwritten notes in the Evernote App, the quality is much worse. It's slower, I can't realistically write joined-up, and the clarity is much less clear. Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice? Thanks!
  20. Hello, I’ve been using Evernote for nearly a year now (Premium Account) and I’ve found it to be a crucial tool for business. One thing that I’m still ecstatic about is the handwriting functionality. I have virtually eliminated my paper notes and have streamlined my organizing process. On that note, I do have one suggestion I would like to see implemented for the handwriting functionality, “Lined Paper Emulation”. Although the existing layout has proven to be useful for drawings and/or quick notes (like scratch paper), it’s less aesthetically appealing when writing an outline or simple bullet points. I know what you’re probably thinking; why not just type them out? The problem with that is, if you’re on site with a client and you need to take notes of that meeting, are you going to ask your client to clear out a portion of their desk so you can type on your tablet (if you have an external keyboard that is)? Probably not. The sound of an external keyboard can also be distracting to other participants in the meeting “click, click, space, click, click, click, backspace, enter…”, and depending on the size of your tablet it can be difficult to use the soft keyboard with one hand. Besides, using the soft keyboard looks too much like texting, so even though I’m sure my client knows that I’m taking notes I find myself having to pepper in some sort of comment that ensures the client that I’m taking notes, not messaging friends or responding to e-mails, just so they know I’m taking them seriously. Long story short (too late), having some sort of lined paper template that can be used instead of the art board-like canvas would be hugely beneficial to myself and I’m sure a whole slew of Evernote users. Is this something that’s already available and I’m just missing something or can this be a feature to add in a future (hopefully not so distant future)?

  22. Hi all, Realised topic is misleading - im looking to retrospectively highlight or change the color of existing handwritten text. New user of Evernote and loving it - I'm using it for taking and organising handwritten notes for work. Question that I'm hoping someone can help out with: Is there a way to retrospectively change the color of handwritten text? I know you can choose different text color while taking notes, but i sometimes find myself needing to highlight existing notes. Is this feature supported within Evernote? Cheers in advance for any help. J
  23. i have samsung note 3 neo, being a phablet it's significantly smaller than a traditional tablet, which makes handwriting harder on small screen. i am presently using snote for handwriting because it has a zoombox i.e a magnified square for pen input. having a zoombox makes utilization of small real estate of phablet screen easier. unfortunately snotes is a device specific app and also not crossplatform. i know snotes can be synced via evernote but the whole page becomes a pdf even the text part. i would really appreciate, if evernote team can come up with their own zoombox for handwriting directly on evernote android app. thanks. i have other suggestions as well, but let's see how well this one is received first. regards
  24. The dot grid thing we have now with handwriting is pretty nice for doing quick drawings but it would be even nicer if there was a way to configure this like a "Paper type". Such as having a setting for "Ruled", "Graph", "Blank", and the background we have now. Writing text on something like this is much easier than the dot-grid thing we have now. What we have now could probably fill in for graph paper often enough though.
  25. Current solutionsDepending on the platform (operatings system), the native Evernote application has a different set of features which currently doesn't include handwriting on iOS devices.At the moment the Adonit Jot Script Pen seems to be the most useable pen for handwriting input on an iOS device and is actively supported byEvernotes own PenultimateGoodNotesNoteshelfand a few others... ChallengesThe biggest challenges areAccurate capture of the pentip locationExcellent palm recognition (palm rejection) and the prevention of it interfering with the stylus inputClean and easy interface, but feature rich and customizeableWriting experienceWhat you can do with and how and where you further can use your handwritten notes Features and functions wish list for the perfect appFrom crawling through forums, websites and video posts users are craving for and want an application and hardware with the following featuresFull two way synchronization with EvernoteClean and beautful desgin (currently e.g. Penultimate looks better, but GoodNotes has the better functionality and experience; except it doesn't sync with Evernote)Paper templates like in Penultimate. E.g. Meeting notes, music sheets (needs to support interactive features... see next point)Handwritten notes that support the Evernote feature of checklists, create reminders and additionally calendar events in 3rd party servicesE.g. you take notes in a meeting and have noted down a few points that need further attention later. It has to be possible to mark those (circle/highlight certain areas on your note) and turn them into checklist items, create a reminder and/or add calendar events (in whatever service the user uses... iOS/iCloud, Google, ...)Presentation modeShare editable notes with other usersAn advanced and precise stylus with long battery life and an easily replaceable battery (like the Jot Script) that ideally will work on devices across multiple platformsSimilarly to adding checklist items, reminders and events, it should be possible to tag whole notes or certain parts of notes for better searchability in Evernote. Those tags should be invisible by default and only visible with a switch turned onEasy export and sharing of notes as PDF (and e.g. JPG) via standard device ways (message, mail, ...)Alternatively/additionally storing the notes in Dropbox, Onedrive and the likeCustomizeable handwriting capture and auto advance when in Zoom modeI personally prefer the implementation in GoodNotes, but others might prefer the Penultimate way of automatic sideway scrolling of the paperFast access to basic writing tools (colour, thickness, erase)Geometric drawing assistant like in GoodNotes that helps to easily draw shapes and linesGood embedding of additional content (capture from camera, voice notes, photos from library, PDFs or other files from other apps on the device or in cloud storage, eventually Microsoft Visio Stencils)Automatic backup of settingsWhen writing music sheets, sound preview of drawn musical notes... Why I wrote this? A couple of days I got my Jot Script and started to try out first Penultimate and was disappointed, then spent some money on the Appstore for the other apps and was disappointed by the overall functionality of the combined solution. Was hoping to make my life easier, especially at work, but what's out there just doesn't do that yet...
