Evernote is one of the best productivity apps on the iPad, but it's not always easy to use. While printing a note should be relatively straightforward, it can be confusing for individuals who are not familiar with the user interface in iPadOS or iOS. However, when you understand how things are organized, it's easy to print out your Evernote notes on an AirPrint printer.

Information in this article applies to the Evernote app running on an iPad with iPadOS 13, iOS 12, or iOS 11.

You need an AirPrint-compatible printer to print from the iPad. If you have an AirPrint-compatible printer and do not see it in the list of available printers, verify the printer is turned on and connected to the same wireless network as the iPad.

How to Share a Note Via Email or Text Message

Using Evernote is a great way to keep track of information and share it via the cloud, but what if your spouse or co-worker doesn't have access to the app? It's easy send a link to your Evernote message in an email or text message. The link opens your note even for individuals who don't use Evernote. 

  1. Open the note you want to send a link to by selecting it in the left panel. Tap the icon that resembles the silhouette of a person with a plus mark located in the top-right corner of the screen to open the Share Note screen.

  4. Add a message to explain the link and tap Send.

The recipient receives a link to the note at the time you share it. The link updates to show the note with subsequent changes as well, but no notice is sent to the recipient that changes have occurred.

If you have not already shared your contacts or calendar with Evernote, the app asks for permission to use these features when sharing notes. You are not required to give the app permission, but you need to enter the contact information each time you send an email or text message if you don't grant it.
