Have we lost the screen timeout override setting in v10? I use Evernote frequently for recipes while cooking, and it was helpful that I could previously have it override my device's screen timeout setting and stay on indefinitely while I was viewing a note. As far as I can tell, this setting has been removed in v10.

Strangely, my wife's device seems to keep her notes open (though I haven't tested extensively), while mine times out. She has a Samsung Galaxy S20 FE running Android 10 and I have a Pixel 5 running Android 11. Maybe it's related to the OS version?

Does anyone have any insight or experience with this?

In iOS it is through the general settings, not in an individual app. If I need it frequently, I can define a Siri shortcut to handle it with a single command.

No idea about Android.

Happy cooking !

Yeah, i also want to have longer screen timeout just for Evernote. Recipes are a pain, because you always have to wake up the screen.

So you have this issue, too? Do you mind if I ask what phone and version of Android you have?

In this forum there were also complaints about this overriding of the general setting in EN8 (legacy). I assume EN therefore removed this from EN10. Maybe we get a setting within the app in future versions. That would be perfectly fine. As a workaround you could use third party apps to easily toggle screen always on via a widget. An open source example doing exactly this and running on my Android 10 devices: https://f-droid.org/packages/com.github.muellerma.coffee/

Yes, same issue. I'm using Pixel 3 XL with Android 11.

So maybe it's specific to Android 11.

I get it, people have different use cases. There's currently no setting, so we're stuck with what EN decides to implement. It's just interesting (and a little frustrating) that it behaves differently on different Android devices. To me that sounds like a bug.
