Cannot highlight/copy text from PDFs

Recommended Posts

Mac Version 6.9.1 (454120 Direct).

I am unable to highlight and copy text from PDFs embedded within notes.  I normally use this capability every time I use Evernote.  Is anyone else see this behavior?

I've raised a ticket (1845916).

Hi @damian, I'm actually the agent that took your ticket. I mentioned this in my reply to you in the support ticket as well, but for now you should be able to download the PDF and search via Preview. See this thread:

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!

I too suffer from this issue. I submitted a ticket as well.

Evernote for Mac 6.9.2, Sierra macOS
Cannot copy text from PDFs in Evernote.
This feature was previously enabled and usable.

Opening the PDF in Preview is fine as a work around. But are there plans to restore the previous functionality ? Not being able to copy text from PDFs from direct in Evernote is a major regression.

That other thread is a different issue (and the thread is now closed, with a link to a thread that discusses a third separate problem with PDFs on Sierra).

Hi @Andy Norman

I'm glad to hear the workaround is working for you! Our developers are still investigating a fix for this issue, it's definitely still being worked on. They have not provided us with an ETA for when the fix will be released, but my hope is it will be included in an upcoming version soon.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.
