Huge headers multiple times in a merged note can be very unsightly. Can we please get the optional merge options like the Windows client has? Thank you

Wait wait wait wait.... get in line.  :D;)

 

the "ability to merge notes in the order selected" like the Windows client has has been on a list (somewhere) for years.

Heheh well, I was just merging some notes that I wanted to be in a proper readable sequence to read later. Had to make a small change to one and then click sort "by date updated," then merge so they'd be in the right order. Years you say... I'm surprised it hasn't been "sorted" yet.

In Windows, the skinny rule separator for merged notes is fantastic.

Here are the steps in Windows (it might be similar in Macs)
>Tools
>Options
>Note
Then scroll down to:
Note merge options
* Merge notes with no separator
* Merge notes with rule separator
* Merge notes with header separator

Sounds good! Unfortunately, this is still missing on the Mac.

I don't know when Evernote introduced the large unsightly headers for merged notes. But I do know exactly when they started becoming more than just an aestetichal problem, more than 4 years ago:

The issue is, that the first header would be repeated if you merged notes with merged notes, see the example in the post above. A complete deal breaker for me.

I filed a bug report all those years ago, but have no hope of ever seeing it fixed.

There doesn't seem much interest in this request1436199307_ScreenShot2020-09-01at9_21_31PM.png.6fc3adc24ad72d5e580e01c16b9d9101.png
I don't know the widows formatting,
but my work-around is to switch from H1 to H3 format style

fwiw  I use an Applescript to automate this
- it's a variation of a generic Find/Replace script

tell application "Evernote"
     set theNotes to selection
     repeat with theNote in theNotes
          
set noteContent to HTML content of theNote
          set newContent to my replace_text(noteContent, "<H1>", "<H3>")
          
set newContent to my replace_text(newContent, "</H1>", "</H3>")
          if newContent is not noteContent then set HTML content of theNote to newContent
     end repeat
end tell

on replace_text(this_text, search_string, replacement_string)
     
set prevTIDs to AppleScript's text item delimiters
     set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the search_string
     
set the item_list to every text item of this_text
     
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to the replacement_string
     
set this_text to the item_list as string
    
set AppleScript's text item delimiters to prevTIDs
     
return this_text
end replace_text

would really like this feature. Have spent far too many hours trying to come up with an applescript or regex or keyboard maestro macro to clean up merged notes, which honestly look like a complete mess. 

Emoji support is higher on the list unfortunately. Just put some smiley faces in your notes around the big gray borders. That will take your mind off of it.

When emoji support is fully baked, I expect sprinkles and animated GIF support will come next. Then they will maybe get back to things that would help with platform parity.

clean up merged notes

I mostly leave the header alone, however if I right-click on text within the header I can select delete table.
