By Fulton , January 12, in Evernote for Windows. I'm not using the current version of Evernote, but in my slightly older version there is a dialog bar when I hover my mouse at the top of every PDF. The bar has several options. The second option is Annotate an a with a circle around it, like.
When I click that, the annotation tool very slowly opens. Do you not have that? If not, what's your version of Evernote? I am having the same issue.

There is no longer an option to annotate pdfs on the web app or on Windows 10 desktop, although all the Evernote documentation says that, as a premium user, I should have this ability. For the version of Evernote that I'm running 6.
When I right-click in the PDF, it gives me those same options in the menu. That's good. But, to be honest, the annotation tool is not very elegant. The font is too chunky for my purposes, including the ability to write more than a couple words. Glad we've been helpful, Fulton. I have to say that every time there's a new update to the Windows app, I see appalling complaints about formatting and the new PDF reader, which is Google-based a rule of thumb: if it's inadequate or screwed up, it's from Google.
That's why I'm clinging to my older version for awhile yet. Do you test new versions sometimes or just based on feedback? Mine wasn't an upgrade. I'm switching over from OneNote. So as far as I could see I was only offered the current version in the download process. Normally, I've updated Evernote each time a new version has come out, not always right away, but within a couple of weeks.
Last year, however, before I could update I began seeing all these complaints here about formatting issues. I think some of them have gotten resolved in further updates, but then new problems get introduced, like the crippled PDF reader from Google. I haven't been using beta versions--I do some other beta testing, and it gets time consuming, since I tend to get obsessive about it.
IAC, the current version of EN for Windows is working more than adequately for me, despite its issues. I rarely use tables, so I haven't wanted to update for that. I do update EN for Android each time a new version is issued. As a new subscriber to Premium, I am unhappy that annotation on Win 10 does not work well. Instructions from Evernote are inadequate unless you take the time to read this forum. I do not have any of these options when I right click on a PDF file.
I am running windows 10 and Evernote premium on a new laptop. I also bought premium for the PDF annotations and this is getting to be frustrating. Any recommendations?
I'm using Evernote 6. Yes I see that as well I hope they make a big A button for Annotate, so I dont have to right click and scroll down to annotate. If someone saves a PDF to evernote, im pretty darn sure they want to annotate it. Make a big button please evernote. Ease of use.

The difference between the two suggests to me that it is something within Evernote that is the problem, and not anything to do with my display resolution settings. Hello everybody.

I am new in evernote and I just got the premium version but I cannot annotate pdf. There is no button, and when I right click the pdf I still see no such option. What can I do? I actually choose the premium version to edit pdfs.

Make sure you right-click on the PDF in the Note window the big window at right , not the thumbnail window in the middle. Eira , I'm seeing the same problem you report. The native Evernote PDF annotate screen is definitely lower resolution; it's awful. Hey :. I had the same issue and it took me some time to work out that annotate seems to only work when you have saved your documents in pdf form.
It doesn't work for webclippings. I also can't get it to isolate my highlighted areas from the entire article as youtube promised me it would. Maybe it's a windows thing.
