I agree.

A quick Google seems to indicate that people have been asking the same question for 9 years......I wouldn't be without Evernote and I'm happy to pay for the Premium account, but this missing feature and the fact its been requested for so long seems poor. What development are they actually spending all our premium subscriptions on? :)

I'm guessing it's because Evernote is effectively supporting already horrendously complex HTML.  When I merge clips from multiple different websites into a single note, each with their own complex multi-level style sheets, I'm just staggered that it can make any sense of it.  So what looks easy on screen hides massive complexity under the covers.

But that doesn't mean to say I don't need it - I resort to the 'Simplify formatting' command so often that I've nearly given up trying to format anything in Evernote - that's not good for my notes, or for Evernote's long term survival.  Please do it!

Dear Evernote team,

Focus on what customer wants. Not what you think is important. A similar topic is up since 2010.

If you are not going to implement a format painter then make your product right. Same font and textsize paragraphs sometimes doesn't match and most of the time format freaks out without reason.

Please, Fix it.

BR,

A paying user.

A format painter would be great.  FYI, in the mean time, don't forget that you can paste text only from your clipboard content with keyboard shortcut.  

For Mac it's  Command-Shift-V

It appears to use the text format at the note location where the text is pasted, as I'm trying to demonstrate below.

Here's 14 point Comic Sans Bold Italics

And here's the paste of the above line: For Mac it's Command-Shift-V

Agree entirely - for $90 NZD per annum for Premium, I'm very disappointed with the lack of formatting options - I often have to cut and paste into Word to edit/format and then paste back into Evernote.....

@Dave.Robinson16@Gmail.com, I really don't know why you're creating brand new entries for requests which have already been documented. If you have more specifications to add, you could just do so as an amendment to this discussion.

Just my (not so) H. O.

@Pixie8, did you VOTE on this idea? (Top of discussion, left side: up or down carat)

Still no format painter after all these years and so many requests, and the reason why I left Evernote. Why?

1. My notes look a mess or I need to waste time to get paste content into the same format as the test of page.

2. It's an obvious feature gap that peeps @ Evernote should not be dependent on community to inform of need.

** But the main reason why is **

3. It's clear that Evernote doesn't listen to or care about their customers despite what they say. Actions count. Talk is cheap.

Sayonara Evernote.

You're welcome to add your vote to this request.  The vote button is at the top left corner of the discussion and there are currently 2CAB6768-3202-41A3-B0A8-CC7900F069DD.jpeg.2711db3444b935d3b7c66aa67ce667f0.jpeg user votes.

For my use, a format painter is more of a word processing tool, than a note tool.

If it's something you need, a work-around is the Evertool utility

>>and the reason why I left Evernote

And yet you're still here.  How can we miss you if you won't go away

This is a much needed feature. I use Evernote to take notes on technical articles, and often want to be able to see either specific content when I review the notes in a particular area, or see my own comments on material I have annotated...It would be sooo much faster to be able to use the paintbrush to accomplish this rhather than have to individually format each specific sub-section of a note.

I wasn't aware of this topic and had create one of my own.  I voted this one up as well.  I realize that some mat feel that formatting for notes isn't import but I use formatting as a form of metadata, allowing me to get more information from some verbiage than the words alone.

This is an item that needs to be addressed but is not on a check list

This item has been resolved but is not on a check list

Being able to copy the formatting would be enormously helpful

Hey, it's 2020 and Evernote still has not updated a simple format request. Something which is essential and basic i think. Please please! Add this feature! It makes life so much easier. We are paying customers, perhaps take our request into consideration? After alllll these years?

Hiya, title of this idea basically- please provide 'Format Painter' option in the notebook similar to what we find in MS Word.
