How to Auto View PDF in Main Note?

Recommended Posts

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.

It depends on the platform

On my  Mac, I can view PDFs inline or as attachments.  This is a setting per file, or default for all new pdfs

And the setting is?  ....for the OP.  Looks like a Mac screenshot?

thanks, the screen shot was from my MacBook and I have "inline" set as the default but I guess that only works if the PDF was clipped?

thanks, 

@DTLow I've got the "view inline" checked now and it shows, but apparently it times out after a few minutes and goes back to the compact view? Am I understanding that correct, I have to do that every single time I want to view a PDF in a note that was not clipped? The note in the screenshot was one written in Notability and then "shared" it to Evernote, so it seems to be compact view whenever the note is "shared."

I'm trying to find a good rhythm of taking handwritten notes which are stored in Evernote (especially with the new update to iOS 11 and the Apple Pencil). I really wish the annotation functionality in EN worked more like Notability or Apple Notes so I didn't have to write in an outside app then send to EN. Anyone have a best practice they like for making hand written notes with Apple Pencil within EN?

Thanks again. SF

Just an fyi; Evernote does handwriting ocr for images, not pdfs.  This is important if you want the notes searchable

My practice is to use external apps for handwriting, and transcribe to typed text

I like Notability, and GoodNotes has built in OCR

I haven't experienced this.  The inline/attachment view is constant

Thanks! I was going to move to GoodNotes as I wanted the OCR, but wasn't aware EN did OCR for images not pdf's, thanks much.
