Today, we released updates to both Evernote for Windows and Evernote for Mac. While many of the improvements to Evernote for Mac aren’t visible (read: lots of bug fixes), there is one notable new feature:
View PDFs as attachments
Evernote for Mac (version 2.0.4) now lets you right click on a PDF to view it as an attachment. By default, Evernote for Mac displays PDFs right inside notes. This is really useful for reading the PDF and searching within the document without having to launch an external viewer. There were two slight annoyances with this inline view that have now been solved: no more waiting for large PDFs to load and you can now easily drag a PDF out of Evernote.
Simply CTRL+click on a PDF and choose the “View as attachment” option. The PDF will immediately switch to an attachment. You can do this while the PDF is still loading. If you want to go back to the inline view, CTRL+click on the attachment and choose “View inline.”
