Please introduce different colors highlight! In previous versions of the software - before the highlight button was inserted - I was able to highlight in different colors by using Mac's text contextua

Hmm I counter this problem for a while.   It seems to me that I can only change the color of the font rather than the highlight when I call out the "show colors" option under format.  

Seems like people who made Evernote, don't use it. Highlighting with different colour is the most basic of things while making notes. It looks stupid on the part of the coder, that he/she gave complet

I understand the latest beta versions  have colour  options

Yes, the Web Beta has colours and if you add them there, they show up in the desktop and Android version.

I just started evaluating Evernote basic. Wanted to get to know the software before subscribing. Not being able to highlight (turning the background pale yellow is not highliting, in my opinion) is one of those hard dealbreakers for me. It does not matter how a program excels in other areas if basic functionality is missing. That fact that the staff cannot even understand why highlighting could be a crucial function in note software boggles me. And the fact that this is not fixed after six years tells me to start evaluating other software. 

@Kissoh Hi there, have you been able to try the Beta Editor on the new Evernote Web experience? This now has multiple highlighter colors. If you use Chrome or Safari in the lower right corner of the note editor you should see a "Beta Editor" badge to use this new feature. If you use Firefox on the new Evernote Web, you'll already be using the Beta Editor and should have access to this feature. No estimate on when to expect the Beta Editor to be available on other Evernote apps, but for the time being any highlighter color applied on the web will sync and display on all your other Evernote apps. Thank you for your patience and passion!

As I've stated elsewhere, it is nice to see some additional colors, but I prefer to have some bright, primary colors if we only get a handful.  The pastel shades currently in the beta are not sufficient.  So I am basically agreeing with Kissoh.  " (turning the background pale yellow [or any other pale color] is not highliting, in my opinion)

Hmmm... looks like highlighting to me.  Personally, I would find bright, primary colors to be jarring.  I like these.

Need different colors for note highlighting. I saw this as a Beta feature announcement. I cannot believe it is not implemented. How can I use the Beta editor?

It's 2020, and still no ability to change the highlighter color???? It's a standard feature in other comparable software — and it has been so for a long time now. What's taking so long!

It’s there. Go to the new Evernote Web (in beta) and you can choose highlighter colors.   I believe this will come to the desktop apps at the next update, but the next update of desktop apps seems to be taking longer than usual. But at least the web version proves the feature exists now.

xmasmoneky, thank you for your response. That it's on Evernote Web sounds great, but it's far from convenient. In 8 years of using Evernote, I think I've used the Web version once! There's no excuse for not having it on the desktop app after all these years.

I think we will be seeing all the goodies from the web app in the desktop apps soon. 

And possibly "goodies" removed from the desktop apps
Evernote is moving towards a common editor code delivery mechanism

However for this discussion, the most important feature is different colours for the highlighter,1810845201_ScreenShot2020-02-14at8_14_15AM.png.d4b7f3d273dc8882dd3d886afc92fa87.png
and it's currently being tested in the web beta

I hear you.  I have been requesting a feature for 7 years - the ability to clear the date on a reminder - which seems simple (to me), but probably won't be prioritized vs. the re-platforming they are doing.

Yet another person who thinks the highlighter needs to be many different colours. We're working from home and I'm making notes of meetings being held remotely. I need something to differentiate points in my notes. I have thousands of notes in Evernote, mostly clippings. I will be using it even more during this time, and this most basic of functionality should already be there. It's been requested for YEARS. 

It's coming. It's in the current web beta, as has already been noted in this thread.

Sure -- life sucks, and then you go to OneNote or Notion or WhateverNote, and find out that life sucks in a totally different way...

I don't just want to change the highligher color. I one to be able to hve some words in a note be highlighted in yellow and maybe other words highlghted in light blue. 

And that's exactly what the highlighter changes in the web beta allows you to do...

If you want multicolor highlighter use the new editor in the web client. This is the beta for the new editor that is under development for all clients.

And if it really ridicules you, you can add your own money to cover the development cost. Just upgrade to Premium - and when you are paying, you can start to be emotionally agitated by all the shortcomings.

Currently you are only ridiculing, but not contributing.

It's 2020. Evernote. Why hasn't this been implemented? Planning on cancelling my subscription if this doesn't happen and will tell everyone else I know to do the same. Seriously disappointed with Evernote over what should be a simple fix. DO BETTER.

 

Note I DO pay for premium so @PinkElephant I am paying for my voice to be heard.

I am also surprised that such a basic feature isn't available yet...and I am also looking forward to it being implemented at some point.

I don't use Web-based platform because it's really uncomfortable for me.

I'm was talking about Host-based platform on Windows 10 and only.
