  1. Change in-Evernote PDF viewer

    Hi, I'm running EN on Windows 10 1709. This is a new build workstation (yay, got a new laptop) and when I installed EN it seemingly started using the Chrome built in PDF viewer. I've since installed a couple of other PDF readers (Adobe & Sumatra) and I wanted to be able to use them instead. Is there any way of selecting the default viewer? I've changed it in the OS, but that change doesn't seem to be reflected in EN. Thanks!
  2. Convert to pdf missing

    Im running Evernote Version 6.13.3 (456166 App Store) on my mac version 10.13.3. I used to be able to right click a note and the drop down would show a option of "convert to pdf". I no longer have this option. I am a Evernote Premium subscriber. Ive enclosed a image of what I see when I right click. Has Evernote dropped this feature or am I doing something wrong to access this feature? Thanks
  3. バーション6.7.5の有料プランですが、ノートから直接の印刷ができません。 windows10PC本体に保存してあるファイルは問題なく印刷できますので、プリンターの設定には問題ありません。 ノートに保存してあるファイルをPC本体にダウンロードしてから印刷していますが、手間も掛かり非常に不便で使い勝手が悪いです。 evernoteに印刷項目があるのに、なぜ印刷できないのですか? 無料ならともかく、有料プランを契約しているというのに、発売から何年も経っているwin10にはまだ対応できていないのでしょうか?
  4. Opening the same PDF on Dropbox on Chrome -> we clipper works and I can take screenshots Opening the same PDF (saved to local) on Chrome -> cannot open web clipper Really? ... Are there any fixes for this? I bought the premium so I could do things like this without having to install third party programs. Slightly frustrating.
  5. Hello I often used to open pdf files by windows tablet devices, more precisely 2-in-1 pc, but recently I cannot open pdf files on my notes even when I long press on pdf files. So, when it is necessary to view pdf files by Adobe, I have to click-right with mouse. It's very user-unfriendly, so if possible, could you kindly update evernote so that all windows tablet pc users can easily open pdf files? or is there any way to open pdf files without using mouse? with best regards
  6. I do not like the default PDF view in (306387). I can no longer open the PDF in Adobe by clicking one button - now I have to right-click on it and choose Open. And now all the pages of the PDF are visible instead of just the first page, so when I have combined PDFs and text it is a huge mess. Please change the PDF view back to the way it was.
  7. The annotation feature is quite basic and somehow weak (at least for me). My working with research papers demands quick tools to enhance my productivity. In fact, the tools available remind me of the Skitch mac app. 1) One thing that undermines the annotation is that I cant click it to go directly to the document page. 2) I cant define a page number to go straight up, I have to scroll. 3) The display annotated pages button is hidden on the bottom right and still, won't show page numbers, with several notes, you still have to scroll. 4) You can't search inside the PDF. While the main search can indeed search *everything*, even inside PDFs, it would be nice to quick find just inside the PDF to make highlights easy. 5) Some sort of citation add-on would be appreciated. Like you highlight a paragraph and right click cite APA or something like. Other than a few improvements, the app works great and I'm a happy customer. I also miss some sort of color/icon tags. The tag feature is brilliant, works amazingly well, but to further categorize things inside tag categories, I miss two options: Pin and Color tag. Pin to category can be great, would work just as the main shortcut feature but inside Tags. Color tags would help to display things that fit into sub categorizations of the core tag, color or icon tags would fit just right here.
  8. The visual aspect of a PDF placed in a note has changed in the latest version ( - much for the worse in my opinion! I now see less of the PDF on the screen owing to a charcoal border, and I have to independently scroll the PDF itself instead of the (entire) note. This is even more cumbersome when there is more than one PDF in the note (I typically use 1-page PDFs). There are also buttons that really are not necessary and could have their functionality less obtrusively provided with a right-click context menu. But the worst things of all are that: 1) I can no longer double-click on a PDF in a note to open it (independently) in my PDF reader! In previous versions this has been possible. I do see a button for downloading the PDF and saving it in the file system, but this manoeuvre is way too cumbersome and time-consuming if I just want to read the PDF in the most flexible way possible (e.g. in Adobe Reader). I would also have to be cleaning up the file system all the time. 2) I am unable to remove a PDF from a note! So I have to delete the note, re-create it and add all the PDFs except the one I wished to remove! Please can we turn the clock back. It was fine before but it is broken now.
  9. Hi, The new display mode is nice, but when I add two pdfs to a page, how do I move then around - as in move one above the other? I do not see able to select the pdf to move or copy it. Also, I find it hard to get my cursor to before the first PDF so I can add some text above the PDF.... any thoughts? Thanks Grant
  10. When I first read of your all-new feature of integration with Google Drive, I was in heaven. I finally had a way to keep my articles and article notes on Evernote, taking advantage of the advanced search and nested tags features of the software, while also having one single file to annotate through third-party apps (I don't really like the internal Evernote app) and having the same file on Paperpile. No more duplicates, no need to remember where my annotated version of a paper was, and no more need to search in three places. At least - i thought so. Unless I'm not wrong, I quickly discovered files hosted on Drive are not searchable in Evernote - thus missing one of the most important reasons of subscribing Evernote plus in the first place. Sure enough, Google Drive has quite a strong search engine in itself, but that would concern only the stored pdf and not my own notes, or the web clippings I might have taken here and there. Nor - to be sure - I can take advantage of the labelling system on Drive. Likewise, Paperpile (to which I recently switched from Zotero) lacks, as for today, any in-text search feature (although that seems to be a planned improvement), and, while it is great for categorising and organising articles and books, it doesn't cover note-taking or web clipping (which makes sense, since it is supposed to be a referencing tool and not a note taker). I hope that in-text search of files stored on Google Drive is planned, as otherwise I might consider to downgrade to a basic plan soon.
  11. Feel free to tell me if I'm straining the limits of Evernote, but here is what I'm trying to do: I am preparing a brief to be filed in an appellate court, and I am using EN to prepare the supporting appendix -- basically, several hundred PDFs that I will be citing to in the brief. I have the individual PDFs in separate notes all in a separate notebook in EN so I can easily find them and work with them. But now that I am nearly ready to prepare the appendix itself, there are some preparations I need to perform on the PDFs, e.g., OCRing them and numbering them. Sure would be nice if there's a way to OCR them in a batch without subjecting a staff member to the repetitive-muscle-disorder-inducing task of opening, OCRing, and saving all of them one by one. Are there any tricks that might help?
  12. In an effort to move towards a paperless office, I've been scanning my documents into EN for quite some time. I haven't scanned anything in a few months and my papers were starting to pile up. I noticed that when I scanned my documents this time, the pages are out of order in EN after it is processed by the scanner (I place the document(s) in order into the scanner chute). I googled it and looked through this forum and didn't find much help. I've always scanned them as pdf into EN with OCR with no problems. I made sure that the file format was still in pdf. Anybody else experiencing this? It's driving me nuts! I'm running macOS High Sierra Ver 10.13.1, EN Version 6.13 (455674 App Store) with ScanSnap Manager Version 3.2 L91 (ScanSnap S1300i). Thanks in advance for your help!
  13. Hi guys. I am new to everenote and have two questions: 1) In Evernote, can I annotate the PDF-files, as in making dialogue text bubbles on the pdf-articles? Is there a good way to make such note taking on pdf-articles in Everenote, or should I otherwise annotate them outside of Evernote and then put them in Evernote? The pdf-files I am talking about is scientific articles, so I want to do note-taking in the margins. 2) If I have a note, can I make a "commentory note" on that note? For example, If I have a pdf-article saved in my notes, can I make a commentary note on that article so that I have "2 notes in 1 note". If I for example want to analyze the content of the article and connect those two together, I mean.. Or, do I need to make a separate note then? Do you guys have any tips for doing such commentory notes? Thanks!
  14. I am experiencing an issue lately when scanning a document using Evernote iOS app's camera function. I take a pic of the document, confirm that it was recognized as a "Document", but instead of saving as a PDF in the note, it saves as an image. This is a new issue... before, the document would be saved as a PDF in the note. I am a Premium member and pretty advanced user for many years. Anyone else experiencing this, or know how to fix? Thanks Greg
  15. Add feature in the Evernote Camera for direct scanning in PDF format without the need to use Scannable. In the Evernote Camera there should be the option to push a button and simply save the document in PDF.
  16. I'm a researcher and I spend a lot of time reading and annotating papers with my thoughts and comments. I'm trying to use evernote to save on printing them out and also to keep them all together. When I use upad or penultimate with my stylus, I can free handwrite on the pdf. However, when I annotate a pdf in evernote with a stylus, the programme "smooths" the line I draw making it difficult to handwrite. Further, if I handwrite I often will double tap the screen in the process of writing a word, meaning that the previous stroke of the pen is selected for deletion (try handwriting t, or h, in annotation mode). In order to continue writing I have to tap somewhere else on the screen mid word or letter and then go back to it, which slows me down and makes annotation unusuable. Can evernote fix this by having a handwrite annotation option on pdf annotation? This is vital if I'm going to write comments on a pdf, I don't want to type as I find doing so on an ipad slow and unweildy. Further small point - when I open a pdf to annotate, the "arrow" is the default annotation tool, to save time, it would be better if evernote remembered the last tool you were using and opened with this onel. I note this has been an ongoing problem since 2014 for researchers trying to use evernote, and will push people onto other platforms:
  17. With everything Evernote can already do -- I think it would be AWESOME! if we could Export Notes and Notebooks into PDF's. Searchable PDF's would be an added benefit. Already tried searching the forums for this topic and had 0 results. Rank this up if you like the idea.
  18. PDF import doubled

    Since one of the last updates I get every imported pdf-file twice. One of those just states some useless information. I have to delete it every time. It does not matter if this import comes from my Mac or from my smartphone. Any idea? Thanks
  19. I find myself searching through PDF files fairly often, and it's a bit cumbersome. As an example: I have 50 PDFs of 75 pages each. I want to find Jane Doe's address. Jane is mentioned in all 50 of my PDFs, but I'm not sure what her address is, or which PDF it may be in. My process winds up being a a main search which gives me a list of 50 notes, at which point I have two options: - Flip through all 75 pages of the PDF looking for Jane's highlighted name and see if the address is anywhere there. - Open each note individually and repeat the search for her name using the find feature, which at least lets me skip from instance to instance. Neither option is ideal, and having a snippet view of what's on the PDF page around my search results seems like a reasonable solution. Similar to how there's a preview at the start of a PDF file if you do any markups to it, but for search results, perhaps? Hoping I made that understandable. Thanks!
  20. Hi All, Just seen the way Annotate PDF puts Cover Page showing what annotations made. Is this really a benefit to the End User? It seems to me I am just usually eager to get to the information. Cheers, Pablo.
  21. I am using the Evernote app on my iPhone to save documents into my Evernote notebook. When I photograph two or more pages for one note, the app creates a note which is one image of the several pages. Is there a way to make the note I create have breaks between the pages, so that when I print a note, it is not seen as one loooooong page? (I want to avoid making a separate note for each page.)
  22. I have a lot of pdf files with annotations from other pdf software, mainly adobe reader. While searching for text inside pdf files works great, searching for annotations doesn't work.
  23. As a student I have tons of powerpoint presentations as PDF files. In such a PDF file there is often some really important pages with charts or tables or something. Now it would be great if one could create a new image note from one pdf page so that one doesn't have to search for this page every time. The images could also just be placed inside the same note, which also has the pdf attachment. Manually doing this is just too time consuming.
  24. Hello. There is a bug during import of OneNote notebooks featuring notes with PDF attachments. The screenshots here tell the story. In OneNote when you insert a PDF it includes not just the PDF file itself (which can be re-extracted) but also an inline rendered version. This is an incredibly useful way to organize PDFs, since you get the best of both worlds. You can see a preview inline, and know that if you ever need to get the original PDF back out again in the future it's right there. I'm hedging my bets on OneNote by making sure I can get back to Evernote some day if I ever need or want to, and today Evernote will not retain the embedded PDF. It only retains the inline rendered version. Without Evernote's ability to keep the original .PDF available converting back will be painful or impossible. I have hundreds and hundreds of PDFs embedded this way so manually extracting them before converting back to Evernote is not viable. Please find a way to preserve PDF files during OneNote import. This issue has also been discussed on this forum thread. Everynote Skipping Some of the Attachment in Onenote During Import
  25. I would like to be able to annotate/markup a pdf (or pic, too) in a note AND edit the note simultaneously. Example: I'm annotating pdf in the Evernote pdf tool, yet when I click back on the note to type something there *while* editing the pdf I lose the pdf being open, so I have to reopen, find my place, continue reading/annotating. Currently, the 2 workarounds I've found, which are quite time consuming: A. New Pdf (1) open PDF on computer, (2) edit with computers PDF editor, (3) save markups/highlights/notes/etc as a new PDF on desktop, (4) add edited PDF to note, (5) delete original PDF from note, (6) delete PDF from desktop... phew! B. useWord MS (1) open PDF in Evernote editor, (2) open a blank word doc, (3) edit PDF in Evernote, take notes on word doc, (4) save PDF changes, (5) cut & past word doc text to note, (6) spend next 30min reformatting all outlines and bullets that "blow up" cutting & pasting from MSWord into Evernote... phew!! Please add this feature? 8-) Love Evernote-- love the team behind it. Thanks for all your hard work! What you do is helping me better organize and complete my PhD research... thank you!!!
