  1. I have a problem: I want to prepare my lessons in Evernote and I have to submit a copy of each lesson plan via Email in a PDF-format, so that my colleague can save the file to her computer. Is this possible in Evernote - I've just started using it on my Surface Pro 4 (I switched from OneNote to Evernote, because I like the options for structuring your notebooks better). Summarized: 1) Is there any possibility I can export Evernote notes as PDF files on my Surface Pro 4 and then send them via e-mail? 2) Do you know if this would also work on my Android phone?

    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!

    Firefox Problem with clipping pdf

    When trying to clip PDF web pages. This appears to have started after upgrading Windows 10 to V 1803. This is happening with both Firefox and Edge. Reloading the page accomplishes nothing.

    PDF text in annotation is blurry

    Hi, I have been having trouble annotating pdf in evernote desktop. I can read the pdf text fine, but when I try to annotate it, the text becomes blurry. I have tried changing DPI scaling, disabling it. Nothing improved. I started this topic because I got no help after submitting a ticket a few days ago. Any suggestions?
  5. When clipped a webpage and send to evernote i wanted to print to pdf. When printing evernote seperated pdf file multiple pages and some graphics distorted. I wish it can print to pdf as single page. I added an example page about this problem.
  6. 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.
  7. Hello, I've been looking for a solution for this for what seems like an eternity. My problem is that I wanna be able to export a complete notebook to pdf format, which seems to not be possible. I know I can save single notes as pdf documents, but the problem is that when I select all notes and hit the print key it only detects the first note. The preview window doesn't show all the notes, even though they are selected, and that way I can't export the entire notebook. The other option would be to export every note separately, which would be very time-consuming. In the image uploaded below, you can see that even though all my notes are selected, when I try to print in order to save as pdf it only detects the first note - which would only have 3 pages, and the whole documented would only consist of that first note, and that is not what it is meant to do. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks.
  8. Hi to this wonderful team of tool which I use every day and the users. So here is my issue: I use Evernote for every note I do. So I'm also invoicing my clients through this platform, let me correct this: I want to create a PDF and send it through mail in the Webbrowser and Smartphone App. There is no chance that I will install the App on my MacBook because I don't want to - when I'm using just my smartphone. I installed it on my iPhone and I'm using it in my Chrome browser. The problem is: I can't create delightful PDF's. I now I can on the App for MAC IOS (the program creates a screenshot I assume, sometimes there were some fragments on the text where I right+clickt.) When I create a PDF on my iPhone it is totally wrong formatted and just horrible. Please fix this or any smart user can teach me how to do this the propper way! Thank you.
  9. Hi All I have been a devoted Evernote user for years and use it as my online storage base. I am a coach and have lots of conversations where I take notes on paper with the client, including diagrams and other stuff done in the moment that can't be replicated by typing an email. Evernote worked as I used to take a photo of the document with a voice note and store it in Evernote under the client's folder. This was good for my personal use but my clients also want a copy so bought the ipad pro and synced up Penultimate to sync across. There have been some teething problems but overall it has worked well. Now I am driven mad by the following: At the end of each session, I have taken maybe a 4-6 page penultimate document that I wish to share with the client directly. ie send him/her a pdf with discussions and the actions straight to their email. This sounds basic but I cant do it. It sends a link to my Evernote folder (which I don't want to share). i have tried to download as a pdf but can't find it in iBooks or in the file search area. Surely I am not the only one with this issue. I really want to do this at the end of each session so I dont have to worry about going back to the office to do fiddly document downloads and sharing. I always forget anyway. My questions? 1) Can you send a pdf directly from penultimate. Sometimes I am online and don't want to go back to Evernote to send it. 2) Where does it store the pdf when I choose to save as pdf? Thanks G

    PDF Handling MacOS vs Windows

    Hi everyone, I have a big problem with how Evernote handles PDF files in MacOS, which just show the entirety of pdf as part of the note while in windows version each pdf file has its own box and scroller make it easy to have notes and couple of pdf in one note. In mac version to see the notes after one pdf, I have to scroll down the pdf first which is a pain. Now imagine having a couple of pdf in one note. I know we can make the pdf to show as an attachment but that is not what I am after, I want to see the content of the pdf (first page), but I want my pdf to have its own box and scroller. Does everybody have the same issue on mc?
  11. Hi All, I've got an issue with the newer version of Evernote, I installed the latest version onto windows 7 (64bit). The app appears broken when it comes to displaying PDFs. When a PDF is displayed inline, I cannot click on the PDF window or any of the controls. I.e the inline window receives no focus for mouse input I can't scroll in the subscroll bar or use the zoom/pan or select any text. HOWEVER: If I have two PDF'S on a note, then the 2nd PDF display inline window is fully operational. I also tried updating to the latest BETA 6.12 to see if that resolved it, no luck, I updated acrobat on my machine, no luck, I updated Chrome, no luck. I can't be the only person on the planet with this issue. PDF's work fine on my machine, chromium PDF viewer works fine in my browser. Can anyone shed any light on why it's doing this on my machine? On a side note, why on earth is an app the size of evernote using a chrome plugin to display PDF's? I've downgraded to Evernote 6.7 with it's own PDF viewer, it works so much better than the inline chrome plugin, when you resize the note the pdf in 6.7 would resize with it, clicking the PDF gives you adobe acrobat. Why not give users the choice between the older viewer and the chrome pdf viewer, it also gives you a fall back incase of chrome PDF bugs such at the existing one and stops all the frustration over the PDF issues and bugs. Many thanks, Groov
  12. Hi, Clipper has stopped clipping PDFs on my machine. I get a message requesting page reload. This used to happen and then it would clip. Now it is not. Having to download PDFs and save to Evernote the pre-clipper way. SAD!
  13. Hi When I try to take a screenshot of a pdf document found online the resulting screenshot is all weird as shown in the example below: the text gets cut off on the left. This is true both on IOS and Windows. Any suggestions? Thank you Wouter
  14. 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!
  15. I find the PDF annotation features in Evernote slow and cumbersome on iOS with Apple Pencil. The Pencil annotation features in PDF Expert are near perfect for me, so I find myself exporting PDFs within Evernote notes to PDF Expert and then returning them once annotated. This is a cumbersome process. In particular, when you choose the pencil tool, there is a significant delay when you put pen to screen. I am often 1/2 way through a word before I realise that the 1st couple of letters did not register in time. Can we have this fixed please - or else better integration with PDF Expert?
  16. I want Evernote to maintain a search index of my pdfs even when some of them are stored elsewhere. Evernote already makes the pdf searchable; I just want it to keep that information after I save the pdf elsewhere and create a link to it. Why? The windows exb database file gets too large and unwieldy on Windows, and I'm guessing that is partly because it includes all attachments. I don't need all my pdfs to be "in evernote" - in fact I would prefer to leave them in google drive or somewhere else if it could help reduce my database size. I keep them in Evernote because of the search functionality - that is all I need from Evernote. How it might work? In an ideal world, I could point Evernote to a folder where I store all my woodworking pdfs (laptop or google drive), it could create a note for each one with a link to the pdf, and voila - I search for "bunk beds" and Evernote lists all relevant notes, including those that have the link to the attachment. I would be happy even if I had to manually create a note, enter pdf, have evernote do its search indexing, save the pdf elsewhere, add the link to it in the note, then remove the pdf from Evernote. As long as I got to keep the search information. Workarounds? There are workarounds, including using a separate account for the pdfs and sharing a folder, but they are workarounds and come with their own difficulties. But this is a wishlist item, and as such, I wish Evernote could save its search index for attachments I want to keep but don't want to keep within Evernote.
  17. When using the Evernote integrated camera scanner, it saves the document as a PNG file. I would like to have the option of saving it as a PDF file. I'm using android and downloading scannable from the play doesn't seem to be an option for me. If you take/scan photos and save them in image format (PNG), you can access your Evernote account in a Desktop and right click on any image and select "Convert Note into PDF". After doing this, you will create a new note with all the content in a single PDF file. But, it would be much better if the option was available via my mobile device. It would be a much better option if Evernote could have this function itself as opposed to an external app. Is there any sign to develop this feature in future?
  18. Using an iPad 3, how can I open a pdf sent as an email attachment in penultimate to annotate. I can get it to Evernote but not penultimate.
  19. Hi everyone, I am a premium user and I used to be able to annotate my PDFs. This feature seems to have been removed from all my devices running with Windows 10. I can read them but I can no longer edit or annotate them directly in my notes. Reinstalling and/or updating evernote as well as loging off/on do not solve the issue. I used to be able to annotate on at least 1 device. When I logged off and back on, I could no longer do it. I did not find any option or feature related to this situation in Evernote. How can I solve this situation? Thank you
  20. I printed a pdf from a web page. It should have been one page. TWO pages printed. On the second there was only an advertisement from Evernote saying I feel this is unacceptable behaviour and Evernote should NEVER use any users print media to promote itself. 1. You have stolen a page of my paper. 2. Of course I know - you have been popping up reminders top right of the browser for xxxxxx months! That in itself has been a significant annoyance, as I could not get on with what I was doing until I clicked a button to dismiss the pop up. I have disabled the add-in for Firefox, which makes Evernote less useful but at least gives me peace. 3. Your grammar is wrong. There should not be an apostrophe in PDFs. It is not "of PDF" 4. You are not doing your best to save the planet. This waste is absolutely unnecessary. To upload an image, I had to reduce the size because I am only allowed to upload a total of 501.76kb! That is without doubt the smallest upload limit I have come across since broadband.

    Renaming Attachments

    Hello, I am wondering when we will be able to rename PDF attachments saved inside a note like we can on the desktop version. This would greatly help send or move files on the iPad and phone a lot easier.
  22. I have a notebook that is full of simplified articles that I've saved through the web clipper, and which I need to read and annotate for work. I want to export them all as PDFs. I've highlighted them all and gone to File > Print Notes, and used the system dialogue to select SAVE AS PDF, but the resulting PDFs are all "untitled.pdf" instead of each one being "[note title].pdf." This seems like an OBVIOUS bug. This isn't an OS-mandated behavior, because, using the same print dialogue, I can save PDFs that preserve the original file name from Word documents and that use the title of a Chrome tab as the PDF filename. Given how many of these articles there are, and given how many I will need to repeat this process with in the future, I am not interested in printing and manually renaming each note individually. Anyone else able to replicate this problem, either with a single note or a bunch of notes? And any known solutions? And if not, any other web clipper tools that do as good a job of simplifying articles like Evernote but have more predictable PDF printing behavior? I'm running Evernote 7.0.3 on MacOS 10.13.3.
  23. Using the Android version of Evernote, I can't click and open attached PDFs. The PDF shows as an attachment in the note, but does not interact to clicks with the mouse or touches with the touch screen. This is on a Samsung Chromebook Pro I know I can use the Web version, but I really don't want to because I would like offline support and really need ink annotation of PDFs, which isn't well supported in the Web version.
  24. 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!!!
  25. Hey guys. New to evernote. Basically the issue I've been having is I've been annotating PDFs in evernote and only partial annotations/or none have saved to evernote. These are the steps i have taken. 1. Firstly I've opened a new note inside a notebook. 2. Dragged a pdf into evernote. 3. Opened the pdf in preview by right clicking on the right side clicking on open with - Preview. 4. Annotated document with highlights, text boxes/bubbles etc. 5. Saving the pdf in preview via the file tab at the top of the screen and pressing save. 6. Then closing preview and checking evernote. In some cases some annotations are viewable, mainly the first few I've done. In others no annotations are viewable. One time closing evernote and reopening restored all annotations, tried that since and and no annotations are viewable. Also once I've opened the pdf again via evernote the annotations are gone(same with original file)
