Keyboard shortcuts in Evernote Web would be extremely useful and make it faster to use Evernote Web.

 

Currently, the process to open a new task requires a minimum of three clicks-- click "New Note", click to edit the subject or body, optionally add tags and other elements, and then click 'Done'. Editing an existing note requires even more clicks: Click on the note, click on the edit button, click on "Show details" so that I can see the tags, optionally add and remove tags, then click on the message body, then click 'Done'.

 

I'm a heavy user of Gmail keyboard shortcuts (The best one is '?', which brings up a list of all keyboard shortcuts. Click '?' again to make the list go away). Dropbox also supports keyboard shortcuts, as well as other Todo apps like Gqueues and Google Keep (Again, just hit '?' to bring up a list).

 

Please add Keyboard shortcuts in Evernote Web and please provide documentation about these shortcuts similar to the Gmail/Gcal/Gdocs '?' key.

Don't mean to sidetrack the original request, but thanks for mentioning the "?" shortcut in GMail. I did not know about that. Super easy to remember it now.

+1 - I'm also a Gmail user (work and personal accounts) and heavily utilize the web browser shortcut keys.  This would be a great enhancement to the Evernote web client.  Cheers!

This problem has been on my mind for a few months now. I agree that keyboard shortcuts would drastically improve the user experience for Evernote Web users. To the best of my knowledge the app is written with GWT and the code to add keyboard shortcuts is not overly complex: https://developers.g...deUserInterface so I'm wondering why it hasn't been done yet.

 

I think it likely that the company is more focused on mobile initiatives. More new versions for the Mac/Windows/Android/iPhone/iPad clients are turned out than updates for web. However this may just be an error in my availability heuristic since I don't readily notice when a web update has occurred. Another possibility is that Evernote is completely rebuilding the web app client to get off of GWT. I think the future of GWT is shaky especially with Google's other opensource projects taking lead (Dart and Golang).

 

I've been using a Chrome plugin to help me add custom JavaScript handlers to keyboard shortcuts while on the Evernote website. To those technically inclined this may serve as a good workaround.

I completely agree.  I need to indent tabs frequently to build notes that have a clean look like an outline.  The fact that I have to use a mouse to indent is VERY frustrating.

Please introduce keyboard shortcuts for the web version!

 

I am a heavy Microsoft OneNote user, and am trying to switch to Evernote.  But the inability to use shortcuts in the web version drives me crazy and I find myself (surprisingly) praising Microsoft!

Although keyboard hotkeys support is on that "danger area" to develop and mantain I'm sure Evernote has a great dev team to do it by now. Keyboard hotkeys feature is at the soul of a web app of Evernote's nature - really hoping to see it soon.

There already are several shortcuts. Just press the CNTRL key and then try every other key, one by one, and you will discover them. It takes about two minutes.

@Chas - I can see that bold, italics and underline have shortcuts. I can't find a shortcut to create a unordered-list. I also can't find a shortcut to jump to the search bar to enter a new query. These are basic operations that I perform very often and I need to resort to using the mouse. This thread is talking about the keyboard shortcut system used by Gmail which is essential to go mouse-free.

Haphazardly typing random key combinations on the keyboard is not adequate. The shortcuts must be documented and should be easily accessible, such as how Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive and Dropbox use the '?' key to display a simple description of all of the keyboard shortcuts.

 

I pressed the Control key and tried every other key. There were no Evernote shortcuts for me when using Firefox. I did find that Firefox itself has shortcuts for use in webforms (Control-F goes forward, for example) but those are not specific to Evernote Web and work on any web form.

Being able to select several notes with shift would come in handy.

I'm on Linux and there is not Evernote package. I can only use the Web service.
