How do I remove items from sidebar


Recommended Posts

I see that this is under the iOS thread, but I second this request for Windows users. Clutters the sidebar unnecessarily - could be potentially compromising for privacy reasons, etc.

The whole lesson is that the user interface, as regards the file organization at least, should be eminently editable by the user.

Thanks!

Oh wow look I didn't even need to make a thread....

I love how this has been a request in android for a long time. Doesn't even display on the browser version of evernote. Why is this so hard? Why is it non consistent?

 

I'll be honest, I don't think I'll be using evernote anymore. They're doing the same thing every company tries to do; "how do we add more features?!?!"

Well guys not all of us want new and exciting and flashy features. Some of us want stable syncing, minimalist design (eg, let us turn off recent notes), offline notes and that's about it. I don't even use 99% of the paid features.

 

INB4 "we're sorry" "this is already a request" "...your attitude..."

I'm using the 'all new' version of Evernote. Is there any way to customize the sidebar like we used to be able to? I want to remove items such as Work Chat and Shared With Me that are of no use to me and only take up space that I can put to better use.

Not AFAIK,  not yet at least.

This would really suck.  I appreciate efforts to add navigation features, and accept that turning the new stuff on by default greatly increases adoption.  But removing this kind of basic customization feels like railroading.  Because of the way I use Evernote and other apps, and how I think about organization, I know for certain that I'm never going to use Shortcuts.  I'm unlikely to use Recent items or Work Chat.  At best, that's clutter that's forcing things that ARE useful to me down the list and out of sight.  It may even be a slight detriment because it's just a bit more cruft. 

This is in addition to a layout that already chubbed up that most valuable vertical space quite a bit with search (which I can live with since it makes sense under the new OS's approach to sidebars) and an almost criminal use of an entire line just for back and forward arrows.  I probably won't use those much, but for god's sake, don't use a whole line.  The arrows don't even belong in the sidebar organizationally.  They'd make much more sense in the header for the note, where there's plenty of space for them.  The help button shouldn't have a whole line in the part of UI most important to organization, either - but I guess they expect a lot of people to want a lot of help.

 

I use Tags all the time, and almost never "shared with me" or Trash, so why can't I put Tags where it would be useful to me?

So why can't I hide those items I don't want?  I'm so tired of developers taking customization and efficiency away in favor of features that no one asked for.  It feels like such a middle finger. How do I revert?
