It would be helpful to read PDFs within the note rather than having an external attachment.
This is the main feature of Evernote preventing me from moving fully to AmpleNote or Roam. I use Evernote to go paperless, so everything gets scanned there. Then, being able to search PDFs using OCR is the killer feature.
Agree with Spencer. This is a feature I realize I miss heavily while in AmpleNote.
I also agree with Spencer and Adam. I love being able to scan things as a PDF into Evernote and then view it there for quick reference within the note. Having a separate attachment that opens in a different window is cumbersome and interrupts the flow I have with Evernote. This would be a killer AmpleNote feature!

The way that KeepIt handles PDFs is a good model
The tool that has implemented pdf reading best (by a landmile) is logseq.See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vIDyXyEj_FIThere's nothing in the market that comes close, and I've searched high and low.If the Gods of oneone are listening my prayers, please just copy this exact way of dealing with pdfs. Save a ton of user research. They nailed it
PDFs inline display/OCR and highlighted search terms are crucial features to win over Evernote users.
Being able to open, highlight, and even write on a pdf in a note would be amazing!
Oh, no... I thought this was already implemented. Now that I've imported all my notes from Evernote, I finally see that all my attached docs are not viewable without opening them. This is a huge problem. I think there are two things being discussed in this thread - one is simply being able to view/read the PDF in the note, the other is the ability to do more with the PDF (annotation, highlighting, etc.). I think first you should focus on at least letting us see our attached PDFs in Amplenote. Once that works, you can think about adding more functionality. I hate for the more simple viewing to be held up by the more complex part 2. Thanks!
yeah, bummer this isn't standard. I really want to love Amplenote but basic functionality like this makes it a bit of a pain to use at times.
Being able to see at least the first page of a PDF document within a note is quite essential.Personally if I need to go beyond the first page I open the document in another app. But seeing the first page is often key.
For me, I a preview window would be sufficient. Often first page reveals the nature of the document at a blink of a second.
This is one of the features in Evernote which I really love. I can see at a glance if it is the PDF I am looking for and then I can quickly leave through the PDF without leaving the current page at all.This feature missing is almost a deal-breaker for me. I am quite undecided if I should switch just yet...
Completely agree with the sentiment here. I can’t move from Evernote until this feature is available
Coming from Evernote this functionality is a needed /
Like many users, I really want to switch to AN, but this is a show stopper. Such a shame as I embrace the idea execution funnel principle & have spent hours watching Shu Omi's excellent vids.
I feel the same. I would like to be able to store (import via email) and see the pdf like we can with an image and then be able to annotate it. Preferably by stylus but beggars can't be choosers. Lets get the basics first.
Would also love this feature as well. If PDFs were to be integrated with AN would love if things could be linked up like RemNote, Logseq, etc. That is, where you can highlight the text/ image within the PDF & paste the link else where within AN so you would be brought back to the specific spot within the PDFObviously the basics listed by others would come first
