mac Change the size of Stamps?

Idea

RyanMT3    2

The "Tool Size" feature seems to have no effect on the size of stamps. I am trying to markup screenshots of charts and graphs, and since the stamps are set to an obnoxiously large size, it makes it virtually impossible to use them in this way. They would be an awesome tool for what I'm trying to do (e.g., making flashcards with the "?" stamp) but until I can make them a lot smaller it's just not going to happen =/

 

Is there a way to change the size of stamps?

 

(If not, there definitely ought to be!)

 

Thanks!

@RyanMT3 - There are some technical and design reasons why we do not allow for stamp resizing at this time. As we continue to evolve the stamp tool, we'll look into variable sizes.

Joe, any update on this?

I use the Moleskine notebook, with document camera. You'd think this would be a GREAT way to mark-up the "pages" that you capture. However, it is not. The "sticker" takes up about 1/4 of the entire page (when I edit on my tablet).  Just making this small change would make Evernote many times more usable for me (as I'm sure it would for MANY other users).

Given there has been no further discussion here, I'm going to assume there is no active development on this issue. I manage a software development team, so I know all about development priorities and timelines. However, I think Evernote is running the risk of releasing half-baked features just for the marketing splash and not delivering on basic functionality. I have been a Premium user for years and have seen this in various forms across the platform.

If you offer annotations to PDF's baked into the client, you need to offer basic features like resizing stamps. It's OK to end up with this as a missed requirement. It's not OK to not address it at all for more than two years after it was noted and reported. I happen to agree with Evernote's direction of phasing out products like Clearly, Hello, and Skitch (ironic, on this one though) so they can focus on core experience. Well, it's time to focus on this core experience - get your annotation engine up to snuff please.

I have just gone premium solely for this feature -which is currently unusable.

 

Why ? *** I am a teacher developing 'digital marking' in which I wish to use ever note to scan the kid's exercise books - let's say their literacy books - and annotate over the top using text from keyboard shortcuts that I program in, or speech to text. The stamps are the depth of 4 lines of writing when my android snaps an A4 page of their work.  ***

This would be huge for the tens of thousands of ever note teachers or would be ever note teachers. If the stamps were smaller!?

this is tremendously important to use the feature at all as it is nearly ALWAYS bigger than text line height in the document! Totally useless this way when using it with PDF documents!
