It would be useful if users could merge multiple notes into one note containing all of them. For example: I often clip links of interesting news articles from the web for reading later. This creates multiple notes when I am using the web clipper. If I could merge them all into just one note it would help me with organization.

You can certainly do this on the Windows client; I have it in my mind that you can do this on the Mac as well...

This is indeed also possible on the Mac client. Just choose the notes you want to merge (you can select multiple notes by holding down ⌘), ⌃-click and chose "Merge notes". Voilà. Note, though, that they will merge in the order they're listed, not the order in which they are chosen. Also, it will create a new note, so any notelinks will be broken.

Thank you very much for your advice on how to merge notes with the Mac client. You have made me very happy.

I am finding Evernote to be a very Zen like experience, things are not always obvious at first glance however once you begin to understand, you begin to realize that while Evernote appears simple on the surface, its simplicity only masks the fact that it is a very powerful app.

Cheers

Hi. Welcome to the discussion forums!

Glad to hear that you are finding Evernote to be so engaging :)

Simple to learn, difficult to master! You'll find a lot of answers to EverKoans here on the forums in the discussions, the KnowledgeBase mentioned by jefito at https://support.ever...rt/KBSplash.asp and squirreled away on the Web in various locations. I've got links on my site to a few resources that might be helpful as well.

Did you check the Trash for the previous notes?

Prak97, did you try message history? I found out today you can go back into the history of ones notes.

Checking the Trash is a much better choice.

The message history is only updated once every 8 hours.

That's the way it's meant to work - the merge creates a new note (containing all the notes you have selected) and moves the notes you selected to the trash.
