(Archived) Lack of Checkboxes Cripple Web and Mobile Version

Recommended Posts

I've already had some questions about the whole complete vs. not-completed state with respect to notes in the web version. See




Unfortunately, I now have to conclude that without checkboxes, or some other visual notation to indicate a checkbox, the whole todo/done/not done is crippled for both the web and the mobile (phone) versions. For instance, if I see this note on my web version:


Do I know if I need to buy milk or eggs, or both? Nope.

Similarly, if I see the following on my phone (took forever for all the typing, but kind of cool that I can theoretically access my database from my phone. Not going to use it, but that's another story :)):


Do I know which book I've already read? Nope.

Sigh. Crippled. Poor thing, just like Tiny Tim. Needs some checkbox love.

Be careful with the checkboxes online astreim! They're not working well. In fact, if you edit them online, you can break the desktop version of that note. See: http://www.evernote.com/support/beta/knownproblems.php

This should have been fixed in the .525 build.

Funny, it's under the known problems for the .525 build that I got the following:

The program doesn't correctly display notes with inline To-Do entries that were modified online with a web client. Workaround: don't edit To-Do entries using the Web client.
