Today’s Evernote for Windows Desktop update introduces a redesigned notebook section and PDF annotation for both Premium and Business users.

Annotate your PDFs
Evernote is a great place to keep PDFs because they sit in context with all the other work that you’re doing instead of being scattered in random folders, plus they’re searchable. In this Windows update, we’re letting Premium and Evernote Business users annotate those PDFs with arrows, shapes, stamps, and text. It’s a great way to point out important sections, especially in long or information-rich documents. After you mark up the PDF, Evernote adds a summary of these annotations as the first page to give you a quick overview of the additions at a glance.
Free users can use this feature 10 times. Just click the circled A in the note’s editor bar.
Redesigned notebook section
If notebooks are a big part of how you organize Evernote, then you’ll love the notebook section redesign. In addition to a cleaner layout, Evernote Business users are able to click between personal and business notebooks. This makes it easy to visually scan through your notebooks to find the one you’re looking for.
We have completely redesigned the Internet Explorer Web Clipper.
The more compact layout and improved notebook selection in this version make collecting anything you see online with the Web Clipper even faster. While the new look is available for most versions of Internet Explorer, screenshot and annotation capabilities are only supported in IE versions 10 and 11.
As a note, be sure to check that your Command Bar is not hidden so you can start using the new Web Clipper right away. To display it, right-click at the top of your browser window, then select “Command Bar” from the list of available tool bar options.
In addition to these improvements and a host of bug fixes, we also shortened the length of our shared note URLs. We hope you like the new Evernote for Windows Desktop. Let us know what you think in the comments.
