Save your scanned files in PDF, JPG or PNG format

Idea

 

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?

I also want that feature! Let me choose the default file type when I scan a document (like you can do in scannable on iPhone, that App is also from Evernote, so where is the problem ?)

Sure there are workarounds, but they all make it too complicate.

Good day, I know this is an old post, but I was hoping someone would know... I can't seem to find this "convert note into PDF" item.  Has this already been deprecated or am I just a doofus that can't find it?  I'm running 6.17.6.8292

Use the right tools for the right purpose. If you're on Android, use CamScanner. Or Adobe Scan.
