Printing & Margins

Idea

I can say for certainty (having just tried) that this works in windows 10 but not on Mac OS X. Please can this feature be added to the Mac version?

PLEASE! We have been asking for this basic improvement for years. The wide margins on Mac are ridiculous and inflexible. Evernote would be a perfect program if you could just take care of this limitation.

+ 1 for me as well.  

Even if it's not a frequently used feature, it doesn't seem hard to implement and would save A LOT of time for users.  I've had to resort to taking screenshots and 'taping' them back together in a document layout program to achieve what should just be a button click.

I have had Evernote Premium for over 2 years and my only disappointment is your inferior print/formatting features. It is frustrating and unacceptable that we can't control any printing of our notes. I have over 2500 notes and use Evernote for everything. That minimizes the need for printing, but when I need to print something I hate that I have no control and end up with huge margins, broken images and more pages than I need. Maybe I have missed Evernote's response or roadmap, but there are thousands of posts and replies about this over the years so it seems like something that should be taken seriously.

Yes, I think you are right that printing is not a priority at Evernote. There are posts requesting better printing, but I remember reading other posts where users said they never use the print option. I have 35,000 notes and use Evernote daily over the last 8 years. I cannot recall a single instance where I needed to print a note. Paper scanners, the cloud, email, smart phones, and apps have completely replaced my need to print hard copies. I prefer to rely on electrons over paper.

Although I don't often need to print from Evernote, when I do, the lack of "Page Setup" options on the Mac is a serious annoyance.

Surely it can't be that difficult to at least be able to adjust the margins to something smaller so that a decent amount of the note fits on a page.

I love Evernote and have been a user for many years.  I would have thought that at the size it is now Evernote would have the resources to do something about the print option.  Please!

Holy moly, this is a known issue... I was hoping it was just my clueless attempt at formatting. Even the preview dialogue is acting up and misbehaving. Very sad to discover it's such a low priority to establish a baseline feature similar to other word processing apps.

Please consider improving the print margins, as suggested above.  If it is too much work to give users some options for print margins, then please decrease the size of the margins for all MAC users, as there is so much wasted space -- and hence so much wasted paper.

Yes can we pls get more flexibility for print margins?   I am working with tables and lose so much space with the wide margins.

I adding my vote to this request. 

The ability to adjust print margins is such a basic piece of functionality. 

I am really surprised that in the year 2017, it's not available in Evernote.

When doing something like printing off a table for use by meeting participants, it would be really nice to NOT have to import it into Word to format it. The fact that Mac Evernote lacks even the basic formatting features found in Windows EVernote is a complete shock to me.

DTLow, You think you are such an expert to say what is "relevant" because you haven't printed anything in over 8 years. All the hundreds of posts asking for basic printing capabilities is what is relevant. Just because you think it is not necessary to print doesn't make our desire or need any less relevant. Evernote needs to listen and respond to their users.

Although I don't print often on paper. I would frequently like to PDF notes to send to suppliers.

Thank you for another request for fixing printing even though Evernote apparently doesn't consider it important.

No changes.  
For a multi-page document to be printed, I recommend a word processing editor.  Evernote works well with Word/Pages.

DTLow, I wish you would stop telling us printing is not important just because it isn't to you. Obviously you don't copy and paste between Evernote and Word the way we need to. Formatting and images do not easily transfer and it is frustrating spending time cleaning up the Word file just to print what we created in Evernote. Since you are an expert/guru please use your influence to help them see they are ignoring their valued users.

You're quoting my post, in which I said nothing about the importance of printing for myself or others

My point is about using the right tool to create/edit multi-page documents.

>>Obviously you don't copy and paste between Evernote and Word the way we need to. 

No I don't.  
These days I'm more of an Apple Pages user, but not much copy/paste between the apps.
This is the editor I use for multi-page documents.

I use the Evernote editor for notes which by definition tend to be short.

Totally understand you don't want to print, but printing tool in Mac is also made to create PDF, which is something people use a lot, I guess. At least, I use it all the time, and would love to be able to control margins...

Thanks

It's not because you don't do it that there isn't a need for other users ;):)

I frequently print out documents I manage in Evernote.  Checklists, for example.  And have a hell of a time dealing with all the wasted margin space on Mac.

FIX IT!

I'm tired of paying for Evernote and seeing all the features I need get ignored for years.  Address basic stuff like this before going off and developing crazy bloat features we don't need.

Thanks for sharing what I have been saying for years. Some "experts" on this forum don't get why printing is important. These "Notes" replace many spreadsheets and documents and it would add great value to the program if we were able to simply print without huge margins. There isn't anything else that works so well so they need to fix it.
