First line as title automatically

It is very inconvenient in Evernote for Android as I can't just create notes as I go and expect their titles to update as I modify the first line. I have to create a special title with !!! at the beginning so it comes up at the top of my notes sorted by title. I then have to go into my Evernote for Windows and delete the Android-created title, which forces Evernote for Windows to then update automatically in future for first line changes (but still not in Android)

If you're seeing calendar events in the title,  go to Settings > Note and untick that option.  You'll then get a note titled "untitled note" if you save with that data.  Windows still won't replace the title though...

I know all that. That's not what I'm saying. I'm saying this nearly 10 year old difference between Evernote Windows & Android means I have to "fix" every note I create on my smartphone later on by deleting the title line in Evernote Windows to make Evernote Windows automatically create a title using the first line of the note. And Evernote Android still won't update that title automatically if the first line changes...

I think we can assume by now after 10 years that Evernote don't give a stuff about it!

Since it took nearly a year for you to respond,  you don't seem too fussed by it either... 

Just for the record,  since last October Evernote apps for all platforms are now completely rewritten to (within the limits of each platform) provide exactly the same performance;  so what you can do on one,  you should be able to do on another.  Even if that's not the case,  it doesn't mean Evernote don't give a stuff - just that they have many other user priorities to address at the moment.

Nowadays we also have automation apps that can carry out a standard process quite quickly - like maybe duplicating the 1st line as a title or taking in some text and making it both the first line and the title.  In no particular order -and with no preference or prior knowledge- some of these apps are:

Actiondesk / API Fuse / Automate.io / Chronify / CloudHQ / Elastic.io / Filterize / Huginn / IFTTT / Integromat / LeadsBridge / Microsoft Flow / Piesync / Workato / Zapier

This issue doesn't affect me,  so I don't know how much help any of these might be - if,  after some research,  you find an answer please let us know.
