Harness the power of Evernote for Mac, a popular cloud note-taking and note-sharing tool. This course begins with a look at ways Evernote can help you note and track important items and then build and work with notes and collect notebooks for sharing. Author David Rivers also shows how to take and store photos, screenshots, and even video in notebooks. Plus, the powerful tagging and search features help keep your notes organized and accessible. The course also covers the notebook sharing and protection features, so your privacy is maintained at all times.
If you've been following along with me in this chapter you now know how to create a simple text note, even format it. Add some cool features like Bullets, Numbers, and Checklists. But what if you already have the content somewhere else in another document and you need to get it into Evernote. Well, it's a simple matter of copying and pasting. We're going to work with a PDF file, though. Typically there a little trickier then most files but look what happens here on the Mac side when we open up this file called Hotel Information dot PDF from your exercise files. It'll open up by default in the Preview app and all we need to do now is select the content that we want to bring into Evernote.
Let's click and drag from the beginning of Reservation Summary. And we'll scroll all the way down to the last line here on the first page. And copy that. We'll go up to the Edit menu, and choose Copy. Now, we'll switch over to Evernote and create a brand new note. We can do that in the User Conference 2013 notebook, if you've been following along, but really it doesn't matter what notebook you're in. If you want to follow along, click the New Note button up at the top and the title is going to be Hotel Information, so we'll type that in.
Now, down below, we don't need to type anything because we already have that content and we've copied it, remember, from a PDF file. So, let's paste it now by going to the Edit menu and choosing Paste, Cmd+V is your keyboard shortcut, you could right-click and paste as well. Notice there's another option to just paste it as plain text. So, we wouldn't see any formatting, we wouldn't get the image. When we choose Paste, though, look what happens. It looks pretty good. The formatting's not perfect, but we do see certain formatting. We do get our image, and then down below you can see the rest of our text. What's cool though is we took it from a PDF file. And here on the Mac side as compared to other platforms, like Windows for example, we now have a note we can edit.
So, for example, if we wanted to take out the extra line here, we could click and press Delete on the keyboard. Same thing here. We could leave a space after details and hit Delete a couple times to reformat this. Something we can't do with a PDF document in other platforms where you simply have an image of your file. If you need to get the images that are contained within the PDF, for example. And any formatting. So, I like it here on the Mac side. We can take stuff out, reformat this to suit our needs. But we're able to get all that information from the PDF file or any other document for that matter, using Copy and Paste.
