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 iOS. However, when you understand how things are organized, it's easy to print out your Evernote notes.

How to Print a Note in Evernote for iPad

Open the Evernote app on your iPad.

  1. Go to the note you want to print.
  2. Tap the Share icon. It is located in the top-right corner of the screen and resembles a box with an arrow coming out of it. This is the generic Share button on the iPad, and you may find a similar button in other apps.
  3. Tap the Print icon to display the printer options.
  4. Choose your printer from the available options and indicate how many copies to print.
  5. Tap Print.

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

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 pretty easy to transform your Evernote message into an email or text, which is a great way to send lists and notes to individuals who don't use Evernote. 

  1. In the Evernote app, go to the note you want to share.
  2. Tap the Share icon at the top-right corner of the screen. It resembles a box with an arrow coming out of it.
  3. In the screen that opens, tap Work Chat to send your note as an email. Enter the recipient's email address in the field provided and change the default subject line.
  4. Tap Send at the bottom of the email screen.
  5. The recipient receives a snapshot of the note at the time you shared it. Subsequent changes to the note do not update the recipient's copy.
  6. If you prefer to send a link to your note in a text message instead of an email, tap the Message button. Choose between a public or private link to your note and enter the contact information for the text message that opens.
  7. Add additional text to the link if desired and click the arrow next to the message to send it.

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

You can also post the note on Twitter or Facebook from the same Share screen.
