Evernote for Windows 10.9

Recommended Posts

Today we released Evernote for Windows 10.9 (v 10.9.10 build 2439).

This release includes a lot of changes to the left navigation / sidebar, enables drag and drop for moving multiple notes, a new global keyboard shortcut, and numerous other improvements. Past release notes are archived here.

It is available now via the Windows Store and as a direct download version from our website. If you are already running the direct download version, you will see an automatic update sometime soon as we progressively roll out the update and do not need to take any action.

New to Windows 10.9

  • You can now drag and drop multiple notes to move them to another notebook, space, or trash.
  • A new global keyboard shortcut has been added: paste text from the clipboard into a new note from anywhere on your desktop (even if Evernote is in the background) by pressing Ctrl-Alt-V. This will fire a desktop notification that you can use to open the note you’ve created directly--otherwise, you can keep on working.
  • Correction from our previous release: Open an Evernote search from anywhere on your desktop (even if Evernote is in the background) by pressing Shift-Windows Key-F on Windows (the wrong shortcut was listed)
  • You can now drag files into the left navigation menu to automatically create notes with the dragged file in the target notebook. (Note, we still need to add this functionality for shortcuts and spaces)
  • If dragging a file to a stack, we fire the location selection menu prior to creating the note (so you can pick the notebook)
  • We tweaked the notebook view to show the total number of notebooks you have in your account. And when you view a space you’ll now see how many notebooks and uncategorized notes are in that space.
  • We’ve made a number of left navigation / sidebar changes:
    • We moved the link for sharing feedback. It’s now in the Help menu at the top of the screen. You’ll find the link to file a support ticket there as well: click “Help and Learning” to automatically authenticate to our Help Center so you can submit support requests.
    • All Notes is now called Notes, and we rearranged the list items so you can find what you need faster. And if you’re an Evernote Business customer, you can also collapse the Spaces list.
    • We made it easier for you to add new items from the sidebar. Just hover over the Notes, Notebooks, Tags, or Spaces headers and a “+” button will appear.
    • Evernote Business customers: You can now turn off the ability to see notebooks that exist in spaces in the notebooks list
  • There is a new keyboard shortcuts reference menu entry point - see the tiny keyboard icon in the sidebar. When new keyboard shortcuts are added or updated, we’ll apply a small badge here. New shortcuts will be highlighted in the shortcuts menu itself and dismissible.

Fixed highlights:

  • If you saved your view options for a notebook or stack then tried to switch views using a keyboard shortcut, nothing would happen.
  • Sometimes the app would crash after performing a search--this should be largely resolved.
  • Occasionally, the app would ask you to sign in again after a restart.
  • Opening a note that was already open in another window would not bring it to the front of the main application window.
  • We fixed an issue with Home that would sometimes make the background image shake.
  • A few miscellaneous search bugs were resolved.

Coming soon:

  • Customize the background color and pattern for your handwritten notes and sketches.
  • Quickly search and move to different note using a keyboard shortcut (Windows - Ctrl+Q)
  • Create new audio recordings and playback audio file
  • Dragging and dropping note links and tags directly into your note
  • Additional export options
  • Import folder

Let us know what you think and we appreciate the continued feedback. We will keep hard at work! Thank you!
