Hi Technie Ben,
Your answer was very helpful and I now have the Evernote icon on my dock, and I can sign in directly to my personal page.
I still have a few questions and really need some more help:
With Evernote, it appears there are two pages that appear different. The page that originally downloaded from Evernote has a green border and looks like an e-mail account, with options on the top. The Evernote that came from the App store with my personal account has the dark border with my Notebooks. Can you tell me what the differences are between these Evernote pages?
I also cannot clip anything from the internet or from my Word files and bring them into my Evernote notebooks. I can type new notes directly on Evernote, but I can't figure out how to use the clipping service.
Two questions about my printer. I have an HP printer. How can I set a pdf document to print in a booklet format? There are no options when I select "File" and "Print" for typing in a format to save paper. The document is 22 pages long, but in booklet format only 11.
Also, I cannot print selected text from an online document. I have to paste it into Microsoft Word, and then print selected text. How can I print selected text from an Internet document once it is in my printer?
If you can assist me with this, I would really appreciate it.
Thank you so much for your ongoing help, and for assisting me in placing the icon on my dock, and hopefully you can guide me through this!
P.S. I was offline for a few days and now realize I did not rate your answer. I am rating you Excellent for your help, and I hope I get a follow-up response on my Mac questions. Thank you!
I am really frustrated with Evernote. I thought this was supposed to be so easy (at least, that's what I've heard). I did notice the Evernote elephant icon on top and did everything you suggested. I was able to open up the crosshairs and that's as far as it gets.
When I try to go into my Mac "Stacks" and also to "Dropbox" I have a folder which is an important copywriting course, with writing files and documents contained in that one folder. There are probably 20 files in the folder. Within each file there are additional PDF writing files from different sections of the course. I created a Copywriting Notebook in Evernote. What I was hoping to do is clip the entire Copywriting folder from Stacks and/or from my Dropbox and bring the entire folder into Evernote. That way, I thought I could access the internal PDF files in Evernote and retrieve the PDF's and annotate the course pages as I need to, or add my own notes.
When I tried to and grab the folder to add to my Evernote Copywriting notebook, the crosshairs window closed. When I try to drag my Copywriting folder from Stacks or Dropbox to my notes, that doesn't work either. The entire folder transfers as a "zip" file note (and it looks ugly...nothing but a white box with a picture of a zipper in the middle of the box). Even that doesn't open correctly in Evernote. It defaults to my Stacks and Dropbox and picks up the folder from there. I can always read these courses in Stacks and in Dropbox, but I can't highlight or notate things I want to remember.
I figured I can take the entire folder from both locations and clip the folder, and put it into the Evernote Copywriting notebook."
I keep getting a pop-up about synching everything. I've already tried doing that but I'm not sure if I'm doing that correctly. I cannot drag or clip anything into the crosshairs, or bring the crosshairs window from Evernote into my Accelerated course folder.
In addition, I cannot clip web pages from the Internet and put them in Evernote. I went to "Recipes.com" and tried to clip a Chicken recipe that I wanted in my Evernote Notebook entitled "Recipe Notebook." All I got was a screenshot of the recipe, with most of the page cut off.
I don't understand what is wrong. Please help if you have time. I will be online for about another hour, but if I am offline please just let me know what time is convenient for you this weekend. Thanks again...!
I didn't realize files come in as a zip. In that case, it's probably better if I view it in Dropbox. It seems complicated to view PDF's directly in Evernote. The only reason to view the PDF's in Evernote is if I can add text, highlight, annotate and edit what's already in the PDF. If you know how to do this, please send me instructions.
I will try the Web Clipper. Thanks again.
