  1. 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!!!
  2. 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.
  3. I have a .pdf and I would like to handwrite notes on the .pdf. Is that possible? How? Thank you!
  4. Please include notes that comprise only a single PDF in the "related notes" scan. As an academic, I would like my library to be thematically interconnected, but when I drop a PDF into Evernote, it's ignored by the "related notes" feature. I appreciate that there may be an overhead involved in scanning a big PDF, but hopefully this would be a once-only cost. Devonthink provides this sort of functionality, and it would be great to see Evernote do the same.
  5. Dear community, I was wondering if it is possible to search only the text of the first page of a PDF file that is attached to a note. The reason for this is that many of my acadamic papers involve large amounts of words. If I do a search on a topic, for example "author name of a paper" and "2002" I get unlimited results as almost every paper in my acadamic field refers to each other. Most acadamic papers have the most important stuff on the first page (authors, title, abstract, journal, year of publication etcetera). Any tips on this? I tried searching the forum but could not find a similar topic. Kind regards, Joris Theunissen
  6. Hello, I have about 500 EN notes each containing a pdf. I would like to rename the pdf file with the title of the EN note. Is there a way to script this, or another way besides doing it by hand? thank you Joe
  7. There is no simple way to print notes with PDF's in them on a Mac. Can you please add better print features for Mac users? Maybe a print icon next to the save as/annotate/quick look at the top of the PDF's or maybe a right click on the title to print option? I'm a Realtor and I like keeping all my files in Evernote but not being able to print them with ease makes my job a lot harder.
  8. Is there any way to see a PDF automatically expanded within a note? It's obviously reading it since you can see a thumbnail on the card view, but I really need to be able to see PDF's within the note for meetings. Just checking to see if I missed some setting somewhere? Thanks.
  9. Hi, I require the ability to print out notes, which very frequently contain embedded PDFS. However, when I try to print out the note, or even export the note as a PDF, the note prints out as multiple files, 1 files for the word content and formatting, and "n" additional files, each containing one of the "n" embedded PDFs. So a note with 2 embedded PDFs will print out as 3 different files, with the PDFs no longer inline as a standalone file. This is problematic since my notes have embedded PDFs at certain locations for citing figures and relevance. It is getting to the point that I have to create a whole new document in another program just to write up a report with the note content and embedded PDFs, since almost every other word processor or note-taking app can print out inline PDFs. I am unsure whether there is a way to do this, it does not work on Mac or Windows for me, although I usually use the Mac app. If someone has a workaround, that would be great, otherwise I would consider this a bug, which has become a nuisance. With the rising prices for my premium account, the absence of this feature will very likely cause me to change note-taking apps soon. If anyone has a solution, it would be much appreciated, thanks.
  10. Hello, I am trying to go paperless and so far all my PDFs of documents I have scannend have multiple pages. They are automatically and directly send to EN (Canon - ImageFormula P-208II). One thing which irritates me a bit is that only the first page of the PDF is shown which is most likely a good thing for big PDFs with notes, for example. But in my case I fear that I will overlook a page while trying to scroll a note containing only a multi-page PDF. I know that there is an overlay showing the page number and further options but I still wonder if there is an option to show all PDF pages so I could seamlessly scroll through a PDF without having to click on the arrow button for the next page. Opening the PDF in Foxit is a workaround but I prefer to view directly from EN instead of using a third-party program. Thanks in advance.
  11. Just a semi-quick question. When I attach scanned documents as pdf's (and I am a premium subscriber) how long does it take for Evernote to index it? Today was the first time that I used this feature and it seems to be taking some time, which is why I ask. I have no problem waiting, I just want to know the limit so I know when it's a problem. Many thanks!
  12. 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.
  13. Hey guys. So today I wanted to open a PDF on my G4. But as soon as I wanted to open it, it says, that QuickMemo stopped working. It is the first time I wanted to open a PDF on my phone. If someone could help me that would be very kind. Valy
  14. Hi, I read the instruction but it didn't follow what I saw. Please give me a guide! Thanks in advance!
  15. paperless

    As I am trying to go paperless, I was wondering what format would it be best to scan in. At first, I was scanning to PDF, but then realized that I when viewed on the web, I do not see the document. Instead I must open a new window to view the PDF. Also Evernote's OCR only does PDFs if you are a paid member. So I choose to scan my files into image format so that I can see the file on the web without opening a new window. I choose the PNG file format for its lower file size compared to the JPG. Recently, I learned about searchable PDF's which have a hidden text layer within the PDF which makes them searchable without Evernote's OCR. I can make these, but it takes more time and steps then just simply scanning the file. So, which should I scan my documents into: PDF, image, or searchable PDF? Thank you.
  16. I've been enjoying the Mac Evernote's ability to view PDFs as inline images (right click a PDF in a note and choose view inline instead of view as attachment). The problem I'm having with Evernote is that when I do a keyword search to find a note most of my results are all the PDF books I've added to my collection. As far as I can tell there is no way to have Evernote skip these notes in my search results. God forbid you add a dictionary PDF to your collection! Is there any way to tell Evernote to skip specific notes, notebooks or filetypes? Any way of filtering out results using keywords? If not please consider adding a feature request for: Note Setting that has a checkmark to EXCLUDE this note from keyword searches beyond the note title. For now I'm going to delete the PDF books I've added. ;( thanks, Stephen
  17. After taking a photo of a page of text with my iPhone, how can I process the photo of said page in order to extract the highlighted area of the text as a note using (EN) for Mac?
  18. hi, i would like to take the pdf's filename (taken from the url) as the note's title. it is very annoying that i have to manually select the url's filename-part, copy it and then insert it in the notetite field in webclipper. this makes more sense for me than naming the note after the domainname, the way webclipper is doing it (e.g. "PDF -"). so webclipper truely is able to get the whole url, then is should be possible to take only the filename-part (using some regex magic or sth.). i understand that getting pdf's meta information or title description could be hard to get, but the filename of the pdf is even better then naming after the domainname. i want to request the described feature for further development. a better naming for clipped pdf-notes could be possible. best regards diemo

  20. Dear, It would be an excellent functionality if you could import PDFs and powerpoints as imiges and scannable. In general, instead of dragging in PDFs, and powerpoint presentation as an attachment, you get, a bit like Windows onenote the possibility to import the printout. You actually get a real choice. I'm really sure that this would help a lot of people. Now you have to print the page as jpg and import it one by one (to keep the normal sequence). Not handy, this day and age if you have powerpoints of more then 100 slides... Kind regards
  21. Hi, as we open any note in presentation mode then attached pdf file get open in adobe only. only first page of attached file shows up. by clicking we can open that pdf in adobe. is there any way so that I can view all pdf pages while being inline in presentation mode. I presume that such feature is available for Mac devices. please upgrade windows also. thanks
  22. How do you export EN Notes to Google Drive as a Google Doc, or PDF File? and/or save EN Notes on Desktop as PDF File?
  23. Hi, I am having some note with extensive (>100 pages) PDF files attached. Whenever I open the notes the Evernote App hangs for 5 to 15 seconds. To me it seems Evernote tries to open the documents and preview them inline in the note. Is there a setting in Evernote Mac that gives me the option to only preview documents of a certain size within the note? Or even disable preview altogether? regards Dietrich
  24. Today I discovered that some PDFs have disappeared from my desktop app (on an iMac). They show up on my laptop, phone, and iPad. I rebooted the computer and the application, but still no attachments. What gives?
  25. Evernote consistently stuck when I inserted a pdf page by pasting. The bug can be trigged by the following steps: 1. Open a pdf using mac default pdf viewer: preview 2. Copy using command +c, or click edit->copy 3. Enter evernote, create an empty note, and past using command + v. The copied pdf page will show in the note 4. Use back space to delete the pdf page just pasted. Now evernote will stuck forever. Task manager shows:
