  1. 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?
  2. I started a new Note, clicked on the Attach icon and uploaded a pdf file. The link for the pdf now shows in the Note. How do I get an inline image of the pdf into the Note? I'm using the web client. Thanks.
  3. Strange and scary bug... It has happened to me many times lately, while I am cleaning my financial records, using Evernote as an electronic file cabinet. I scan all kinds of financial records, put them inside notes. Well lately, some attachments seems to disappear suddenly. I can see them in the preview pane, but they disappear when I open the notes. In the status bar, I can still see the reference to the attachment (for instance: PDF:1 Size: 462 KB). But they just don't appear anymore. And if I do something like "Simplifier le formattage", hoping to make the display more easy for the program, the attachment won't come back, and suddenly the status bar won't show it anymore. It happens often when I copy the URL of the note in another note... but it is not the only time it happens. Any idea?
  4. I know I can encrypt PDF files on the Mac using Preview, but that creates a new file, so best done before putting in Evernote. What I want to do is open a note in Evernote, open a PDF file, press ENCRYPT, where that app saves it and EN picks up that save. I do this in Windows with Foxit's PhantomPDF app (not free). I just double-click the PDF, Protect (encrypt), then save. Evernote handles it. I don't want to have to open, save as, delete the original PDF, then import the new one. I am open to spending a few bucks for this. Just wondering what other OS X users were using for this with Evernote.
  5. I'd really like an option to just add a PDF as a note rather than as an attachment on the note. It's pretty trivial, but when I'm saving something that's just a PDF (like sheet music for example) it's a little inconvenient to have to open the note and then click the attachment. Thanks!
  6. It would be helpful if we could view PDF pages in a side by side mode (what Preview calls a "two page" view). I prefer this layout on Preview, but would like to utilize EN's superior annotating ability. Thanks for the consideration.
  7. 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?
  8. Hi, I used to open my Evernote PDFs in Mac Preview (mainly to delete or rotate pages) and they would automatically save back to the Evernote document. I have noticed that this has stopped working recently - possibly since I upgraded to MacOS Sierra but not entirely sure. Does anyone else have this problem and/or know how to get that functionality back? thanks, James.
  9. Every single time I load a page with a PDF, I get a little pop-up saying: "Did you know that you can clip PDF's directly to your Evernote account with the Web Clipper?" Yes. I know. Because this pop-up appears every single time. Can you please tweak it so this pop-up does not appear every time I open an PDF page? Thanks!
  10. Hey everyone! I just got Evernote today, and I've tried looking for an answer to my problem for over an hour to no avail. So here goes. I have an iPhone 6, and on Evernote, I have a note that contains a PDF form. When I access the note and then fill out the form, I can't find a way to save my changes. I have tried so many ways that I can't even think of what to do. Is there anyway to have a blank PDF form on Evernote, and with the Evernote app be able to fill out the form and save the changes? Am I just wasting my time or am I COMPLETELY missing something? Thanks for the help!
  11. The ability to add longer comments to a specific portion of the PDF, in a way that doesn't block the view of the main text, would make Evernote a crucial part of the workflow for many Academics. While the highlighting tool in PDF annotation is wonderful, I'd like to be able to add anchored comments - longish text annotations anchored at specific points on the PDF using Evernote. So far, it looks like I can add text, but I have two choices: if it's hanging off the edge of the PDF it disappears, and if it's not hanging off the edge it covers the existing text of the PDF, making it worse than useless. The stamp tool only allows for very short little labels. Here's an example of what I mean. I think the addition of this capability would dramatically improve the PDF annotation tool, and help solidify Evernote's place in the world of Academic note-taking.
  12. Hi, I would like to see something like web-clipper work on PDF documents within Evernote. When I review large technical papers I like to highlight important blocks of text and then extract all the highlighted text from the document. I place this extracted text into a note to creating a summary file for future reference. Currently, I do this in Goodreader and then export all my highlighted text and comments and paste them into Evernote in a note or notebook. It would be good if I could avoid all the import and export between two products and do everything in one step in one product. Thanks for your consideration, Jim
  13. A feature I'd like to see on EN: when I read a PDF, EN keeps memory of the last page I read, so that when I come back it opens up at the last page I read before. I store in EN PDFs with many pages, even 300 pages, and I always have to put a mark on the last page, and I have to search for that page when I go back to the PDF. Such a feature would be very comfortable.
  14. 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.
  15. I am new to using Evernote, and am trying to learn using a Premium subscription on a MacBook Pro under OS X Sierra (as well as an iPad and iPhone). With the Mac, I have figured out how to save a PDF into a note on the desktop version of Evernote, and have it entirely open first and every time I use that note within the desktop version only. However, whenever I either try to download a PDF first into the web version of Evernote, or open a note with a PDF file that I had previously saved under the desktop version, all I get is a PDF icon that when clicked, allows me only to download the entire PDF to the computer and use the PDF within Adobe Acrobat. I have not yet tried to annotate PDFs within notes, but this would imply that I will only be able to annotate PDFs within either the desktop version of Evernote or within Adobe Acrobat. This is not how i thought Evernote Premium would work. From write-ups, I had understood that I should be able to attach a PDF to a note within my Evernote Premium account on one computer and be able to open it and have it appear intact within the note on another computer. What am I not understanding or doing wrong? If I am describing accurately the way that Evernote works with PDFs, then what is the advantage to using Evernote for PDFs instead of another cloud service, such as, say Dropbox? For example, if I download a large number of professional journals within Evernote, will Evernote's OCR in fact be able to index all of that; or are there not-well-documented limitations to that feature as well?
  16. Hi All I think I have probably discovered already that this is not possible, which is disappointing considering I learnt this after I signed up for premium, but is there anyway I can get PDF's into evernote so that they show as the file contents in the web and ios apps rather than just the attachment that needs to be downloaded each time. I admit I am a "late comer" to evernote and many have been using it for years but alas I have not. I have tho been "scanning and chucking" for a number of years which means I have quite an accumulation of PDF's that it would be great to have in evernote (rather than having to use two services) that I cannot see how I can recreate to put into evernote and I no longer have the originals. Any suggestions on how to do this or plans to change this? Thanks PS I have Wndows, Iphone and Ios app and also use webapp. I have access to a snapscan (not evernote version tho) but this is not on the machine with evernote installed.

  18. Evernoteでのpdf編集について質問です。以前使っていたパソコン(macbook)上ではevernoteから論文のpdfを開き、マーカーを引くと自動的にファイルに上書きされプレビュー上でも変化を確認することができました。今回パソコンを新調した際に同様のやり方を行おうとしたのですが、pdfの編集ができず新しくファイルを作成する状態になってしまいます。ファイルを一度ダウンロードしてから新規ファイルを作成しEvernoteに登録し直したり、新しく作成されたファイルをevernote上のファイルと置換しても問題が解決しません。Evernote付属の書き込み機能は文字の認識やマーカーがまっすぐ引けないなどの点から、できればプレヴューでの編集が望ましく思っています。以前と同じような環境で作業をしたいのですが、どうすれば良いのでしょうか?登録手順や使用しているEvernoteアカウント(プレミアム)は以前と変わりません。何か良い方法をご教授いただけると幸いです。

    I want to share with everyone my way of tackling the lack of Automator support and options to bulk import pdfs into Evernote. I created an email Automator script as follows (the automator actions are in bold): 1. I collected all of the pdfs I wished to add to one folder and made a note of the file count. 2. Get Specified Finder Items: here I dropped all of the collected pdfs. 3. Dispense Items Incrementally: downloaded from ( and allows automator to loop 4. New Mail Message: placed my Evernote email in (To:); added the information for title, notebook, and tags in the subject ( and left all other fields blank for my purposes 5. Send Outgoing Message 6. Loop: I left the option to loop automatically and added the file number count to the "stop after" section to ensure I caught everything. 7. Press play. I have a MBP with a SSD and 8gb of RAM so it went pretty fast although I think it's possible it may hang-up slower systems. Mail will repeatedly jump to the foreground when sending the messages, so it's best to not touch the computer while executing this. I also suggest a trial of 5 files initially to ensure you have everything working properly. I hope this helps everyone.....
  20. Hi, I've been using Evernote on a MAC and iOS device but recently started using it on Android with a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet. I'd like to be able to annotate PDFs and images that are in Evernote using the Galaxy's S-Pen. I see that Skitch seemed to be the way to do this before, but it's being end-of-lifed. How is this done now? Thanks in advance for any and all help, Mike
  21. 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?
  22. I am doing research and saving a lot of pdf's inside Evernote. (Sometime I 'save as pdf' and other times I 'print' to Evernote.) Same problem. To create my report I need to be able to 'cut and paste' text from the pdf's. I am not able to do this in Evernote. Without this ability Evernote becomes and OBSTACLE, NOT AN ENABLER. As far as I can see now, using Evernote to conduct web research has been a complete waste of my time. I might as well just save the pdf's to my Mac file directory where I can at least have access to the text. Am I missing something? Dead in the water.
  23. 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.
  24. I am a writer and I LOVE Evernote. As a writer I really enjoy the flexibility it offers for me to go from phone to tablet, to computer and back to my phone. What I could really use is a way to convert my notes to PDF. If I could find this function, it would almost completely allow me to step away from my computer and use my tablet for my work. Is there any way to make this happen? Thanks.
  25. I am currently at university and reading a lot of articles online that are PDFs. As I have Evernote webclipper installed, every time I go to a webpage that contains a PDF, I get the reminder "did you know evernote can save PDFs". Every time! Would it be possible to only do this the first time I go to a page with a PDF, rather than every time. It's annoying rather than a flaw, but one that could easily be fixed... Snozz
