Focus is not in a title upon creating a new note

Recommended Posts


when I create a new note, the focus is placed on the note content, not a title... I should manually return focus on the title each time, since this is obvious that I need to populate the title first ...

I remember, in old version I had a settings window where I could configure this behavior, but in a new version I didn't manage to find settings window at all :(

How can I make evernote to focus on the title upon new record creation?

my version:

v 10.5.7 build 2171 public
Editor: v114.1.14753
Service: v1.25.2

I don't think you can. Pressing F2 will take you straight to the title (from wherever you are in the note) so that might help.

This focus issue has actually been around a long time. The same thing happens in v6.25 Focus isn't in the title bar - but in the note content in 6.25 as well as 10.

I agree that putting focus in the title is the way that I work too but I know quite a few folk that like to write first and then title after they know what they have said.

In my legacy version (I don't remember the version number), while focus was in the note content, the title would auto populate from the first line in the note. I sort of liked that, but that behavior is gone in the new version. I agree, defaulting focus to the title could be useful, or at least having the option to configure it would be nice. I suppose F2 is acceptable for me. It would be nice. due to my keyboard being weird, I just noticed that Shift tab in an empty note moves the cursor to the Title field, and Tab moves the cursor to the note content area. I think that's more intuitive for me than F2 (for which I have to hold another "fn" key).
